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

Banjo-Tron wrote: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?

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.

Looks great. It took me a little while to get on board. I am happy you guys convinced me.

Now I would like to see MMC tackle Overlord.

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.

I gota say, there are definitely things about this figure I'm not super into. The gaps above the feet, the length of the wings in jet mode, and the hind legs on the wolf mode... all seem like they coulda been a bit better.
But for the price point, character, and what really IS there, this is definitely amazing. Stoked to get it.

I'm loving it, even though I do have a few nitpicks. I guess I would rather see white than the slight purple, but I can also live with it too. What bugs me more...shouldn't the wings in plane mode and that stick up from his back in bot mode be the white or purplish-grey? Again, this isn't enough to keep me from being excited about it, but...

I'm happy with those colours. Very happy. I'm really looking forward to finally owning some sort of Sixshot figure.

Why does every piece of artwork for this seem to depict him with different stabby things?

I hope so. If that's the reissue, then this thing is even more monstrous than I thought. I'm going to need a garage to hold this thing. :shock: Also, the guy holding it in gun mode must be very popular with the ladies. Look at the size of his hands!!

At any rate, I think the only smaller Sixshot that makes sense is the WST. Given a normal size human hand, the size comparison should be about right. That still makes Hexatron huge, in my opinion.

yeah, IIRC there were pics of him standing shoulder to shoulder with MP Grimlock. the back wings might make Hexy a bit bigger overall, and considering the relative complexity of each's tranformations, I definitely feel I'm getting my money's worth with this guy.
