    Can Hanzo pull off the kneeling position?

    Ala Hot Rod sitting position from "The Burdon Most Hardest To Bare" episode????

    So I'm weak as hell and I already got my "retro" Hanzo from BBTS. Now I thought the original color looked fine and was living with it, but this color looks PERFECT to me. Very close to Hasbro's color.

    Yeah that does look awesome. Do you notice any differences with this release besides the color? Wondering if they tightened up the inner shoulder joints, specifically.

    Both shoulders are tight on mine, however the right elbow is floppy loose. This can be corrected by tightening the screw by the elbow, but it has a side effect of causing the forearm panel to pop open and not remain closed. I'll inspect further this weekend.

    Otherwise it's the same Hanzo. Same scratched gold paint beneath the clear plastic, same molded 'hole' in the grille of the jet.

    Box has a barcode sticker on the bottom. There is also a strip of white tape with the DX9 logo holding the swords in place (which was sliced on mine as if they put the swords in AFTER the tape). Other than that it's indistinguishable from the first.

    That stupid tape was on the first run (blue) Hanzo as well. It was... inconvenient... to remove from the weapons.


    Green one looks fantastic. That's what I wanted originally. Bah. Perhaps one day I'll get around to trading out the blue one and getting the green.

    Weird, my first run Hanzo had no tape holding the weapons in place.

    Yep, mine has the tape as well, torn also.. as though it had been taken out prior.

    It's a shame they didn't do anything to the box to differentiate it at all !!

    Yeesh, it's going to be a headache down the road when someone wants a sealed one and the seller doesn't know for sure which it is. So is this barcode sticker new or is that something else they forgot to put on my first run Hanzo?

    Hrm...I got THS Soundwave today from BBTS and it has the same kind of barcode sticker on the bottom so I guess it's a BBTS thing I never noticed before.

    And essentially that means there is no way to distinguish the different Hanzos without opening the box.

    I was just checking today old commercials of six shot, and he's blue, green in g1 cartoon. Was he blue in the show, or rather, had a blue chest at any point in the g1 Japanese headmaster show?

    Btw, HUGE shootout to this guy! Sold me his Hanzo, perfectly cared for and what a great deal :)  Thanks to him I finally have a Hanzo that is staying in my collection ^^ regarding my post about blue Six shot. Was his chest only blue in the one commercial? Thought he was blue in the headmaster cartoon but I seem to see its still green ? XD

    Yay, he arrived! Hello old Hanzo, enjoy your new home. :D 

    I'm never really clear on what colors Sixshot has been in the various shows. It's been about six years since I watched headmasters so my memory fails me.

    Truthfully both colors of Hanzo look great. I just prefer the more G1 toy color. Nostalgia is a cruel mistress.

    Blueish-green in the headmasters animation.
    Hanzo color is practically perfect if you're referencing the Japanese Anime.

    He does look greenish if you have him in natural sunlight. Nice figure all in all.

    at first i was firmly and loudly in the sixshot is green camp... but having watched a bunch of headmasters episodes, i actually have come to prefer the greenish blue, as that seems to resemble his color in the series pretry closely. (in hand its not as blue as it seems in pics.)

    QUOTE:"Teal is a mixture of blue and green. It can be mixed with white to make it lighter or with gray to make it darker. At its brightest it has a yellow undertone and is very close to turquoise, and at its most muted, it more closely resembles agreen slate."

    He was the colour of the first release in Headmasters I believe.

    That's the one I want but I keep missing on the deals!
