MMC's Hexatron

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about TF Knock Offs and 3rd party toys.

That price is a little more reasonable than i was originally guesstimating. I was thinking it would be in the 180-200 range.

It's 60 bucks cheaper than MP Soundwave and far more intricate of a design.

I like that he's about the same size as Grimlock which means he's in the same ballpark as his G1 figure.

Hexatron is a fine classics release. The price is right enough and the engineering and detail is there.

£80 from TFScource (pre-shipping) means I'll most likely get it. Haven't pulled the trigger yet though.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I preordered him (BBTS). I was on the fence for a while there until I saw just how massive he is. I think this thing is gonna be awesome :)!

Yep, still no regrets about the preorder. Now you're making me want to buy 5 or 6 of them, one to display in each mode :P.

1 will have to be enough though.

It actually doesn't bother me. In the cartoon, he was the same height as Ultra Magnus, so his size should measure up well standing toe to toe with City Commander.

Hexatron is MP size, so he's way taller than City Commander.

Whoa, really? Like old MP-01 size or new MP-10 size? MP-10 size shouldn't be too bad, but MP-01 size would be massive.

Hehe, yes, but I don't own Grimlock. I checked out the galleries of him which has some pics of him next to Hot Rod/Rodimus and it looks like they're about the same height. I'll have to do a side by side with Rodimus and CC to see how they stack up.

Tell me about it. :D Their HOS Shockwave and seekers are excellent. What's great is each release has been an improvement over the previous.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

This is going to be my first MMC figure. I'm not a fan of the whole HoS thing (not that the figures don't look cool, they're just not my style). I'm definitely looking forward to this big guy though.

Is anyone going to use him for their classics collection? I feel like hes way too big for that. I know he is suppose to be big but I think this is way too big. Fits nicely for MP collection though.
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

Yeah Im using him for my classics collection. I saw some pictures from the comic in this thread and he is that damn big. I stopped collecting the MP line because my coffee tables are full of statue bots. ;)

This is one of the occasions where Rated X and I agree. Sixshot literally LOOMS over almost everyone in most of the fiction. Even his G1 toy was monstrous, almost on height with G1 Metroplex IIRC.

He'll do well on my Classics shelves.

:lol: I was thinking the same thing Mkall! For once I agree with X :grin: Hexatron is a surprisingly good scale for the Classics toys. He is waaaaay to small for MP.

Some questions which I hope you learned folk will know the answers to.

So Universe Darkwing is my tallest Decepticon barring the combiners, does anyone know his height (at the head), and how it would compare to this Sixshot?

Also, I have never owned anything by MMC, I have heard only good things about the quality of their plastic etc, can any of you back this up?

Anyone know of any UK outlets who are going to carry this?

I believe that MMC's Sixshot will be about Leader-class size, meaning at least another 2 inches taller, maybe more.

Buy with confidence. In terms of quality and overall awesomeness, they are the first company to surpass FansProject in my eyes.

I would think Kapow will stock him at one point, but other than that I'm not sure of the UK vendors.

Just buy him on ebay instead. He will probably end up being alot cheaper, i mean Hegemon (Megatron) was £55 on ebay with postage (well he was to begin with, i think hes like 60 now) but wasnt kapow asking something like 90 for him?

He comes in robot mode so theres no problems with customs etc and all these china sellers mark them as gift so you dont have to pay x2 for postage thanks to crappy customsUK

Just get him on ebay hes more than likely gona be cheaper
