You should check a page or two back..

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.

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.

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:
FP Insecticons
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.

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

Very happy I watched this review. It's not like I needed to be convinced to keep my pre-order, but I'm glad I have been. It's an awesome, both aesthetically and seemingly in terms of the engineering.

MMC might just surpass FP in my eyes. This looks fantastic, even if it is just a prototype. This also just re-affirms that Predaking from MMC is the right choice for me.

was on the fence about this guy for ages. wanted him but not having owned any MMC stuff before wasn't sure how good he'd be. that review has me sold. actually, wanting to resist, I made it til I saw what they'd done with the hands and knew that with that level of attention to detail I'd be silly to pass this up. Even if I end up deciding he's too costly, I'm sure there will be a decent secondary market for these.

Looking at the MMC Predacons even more closely now.

I guess they figure his review will inspire hundreds of sales from "on the fence" buyers. Anybody ever notice that the most popular reviewers (TJ, Emgo, Optibotimus, Peaugh) never bash any 3rd party product ? I would have nothing but good things to say too if I was getting figures for free or even at a discount...

I know of at least one reviewer who passed up a free figure because it didn't interest them and they didn't think they'd give a fair review.

The more popular reviewers tend to focus on the positives in figures, but they will point out things they don't like as well. I have seen reviews where there seemed little enthusiasm for a product, but the reviewer still said it was good, seemingly because they got given something exclusive or early, but it's not often and I just don't follow those guys work. If I feel someone is not being honest in their reviews then I'll ignore their opinion.

It's good to see Im not the only one who notices this among the reviewers. Hey, Im not knocking their hustle either. Theyre like the politicians of the TF community. But half of the time I watch a review, I usually have the toy in hand and Im using it as an "online instruction manual". Let them do the hard part of figuring it out, or break something and warn me since they got it for free and I didnt. Some reviewers dont like their videos being used as instructions and transform the figures opposite of how they were packed before they start filming. Screw those a**holes. But the ones I named usually open the box on film so I respect them. Plus lately there is alot of good stuff on the horizon so I find myself watching alot more reviews lately of figures I dont own. (yet) ;)

I've always felt that MMC is one of the few companies who offers their products for "relatively" reasonable prices, as compared to its competitors. Heck, even some of Has-Tak's "limited run" Transformers are priced more outrageously. Hexatron is definitely a steal in regards to its pricing, given the size and complexity. I feel compelled to purchase this bad boy.
