It’s a bird! It’s a pla… nevermind; it’s a giant robot bird.
Unique Toys’ Hagen is a big high and a big low for me. It’s a high in having finished off the Ordin combiner team but a low in it being possibly my least favorite of the group. The design is pretty bland, and although it does have heels, the wings do make it back-heavy in robot mode so everytime I so much as tapped it, I felt like I was re-positioning the heels to balance him (points to Unique Toys for having heels that can be re-positioned to help with this). I don’t know how things will be distributed out for the retail release but mine had only come with the fist for combined mode in terms of accessories.
I like the general design of the alt. mode and although I understand it needs to be the same size as the others (particularly Alberich) to be correctly sized as a limb. However, it keeps the deluxe-styled detailing and general design which looks “off” at such a large size. It’s definitely functional but just a bit jarring aesthetically.
Even though this one isn’t my favorite of the group, it still isn’t a “bad” toy per se. On the plus side, you will get the feeling of having completed all of Ordin and the only thing left to do will be combine that sucker!
Overall Score: 6.5/10
