Mastermind Creations shows us a taste of the direction that they’re headed with their first entry into the Reformatted Line: Hexatron! Their homage to the ninja-assasin Sixshot is a head-turner for sure.
The first thing that pops out about this guy is the insane amount of detailing. Head-to-toe, you’re getting a toy that may be “classics” in terms of sizing (9″), but the sheer amount of detailing is pretty much on a level above any Transformers toy out there, period. The plastic quality is actually BETTER than the majority of the mainline Transformers toys out there, and, while not extremely heavy in weight, you get a very solid feel to him.
Even on this prototype copy, the paint applications are done extremely well. The colors are not final, but it does represent the paint applications themselves, which look to be very well done, not only in terms of the application itself, but WHERE the applications are placed. The “Tron-like” highlights throughout the figure do a great job of breaking up the standard colors and bringing “life” to iy.
The articulation on this toy in robot mode is a dream come true. The articulation is definitely geared more towards the Masterpiece class of official transformers, but there are small things like having a “peg” area indented into the palm even WITH articulated fingers so that you don’t have to depend on those solely to hold his weapons. It’s like they went and did research on every complaint or want from every Transformers toy line and put that feedback into this.
Hexatron features the same six modes that he featured in the cartoon and original toy. Those modes are: Robot, APC (Armored Personel Carrier), Star Fighter, Tank, Laser Blaster, and winged wolf. All of these are great for showing off the intense detailing of this toy, as well as the great eye for engineering that the Mastermind Creations crew has.
So, you have an homage to an awesome character done in the form of one of the best Transformers-styled toys ever made. The choice here is easy, but at the same time, no toy is for everyone. Personally though, I would recommend this to Transformers fans, and fans of high-end collectibles alike. It’s just plain good.
