    The Hexatron test shots have been around since February 2011.

    Is it true that Hexatron will be released in Spring 2013?

    Why the huge gap release of 10+months between HOS Cyclops & Hexatron.

    Was Hexatron's mass production release date pushed back. to release the Three Deluxe HOS Seekers before Hexatron?

    Sorry,I've been waiting for a toy like Hexatron for over 25 years. I just fear the constant delays will cause this toy to get cancelled. like Igear's Monarch Leader got cancelled.

    Maybe a bunch of us can email Master Creations. ask them to please release this Hexatron toy in 2012 not 2013.

    I'm still baffled why my most desired 3rd party TF toys. Take so long to get released. while the one's i'm not interested in get released extremely fast.

    MMC said at TFCon sometime in the next year for Hexatron/Sixshot. I'm not anticipating a preorder for another six months or so, but I'd love to be pleasantly surprised if it comes up earlier. We'll see.

    You know, I'd like them to at least delay putting up pre-orders until I have a job.;)

    Hexatron was revealed sometime during the summer of 2011. The prototype was shown in Octorber 2011 at Cherrybomb Toy's Show. The test shot was first shown at this past TFCon.

    Are you sure the 2012 TFCon figure on display wasn't a painted SLA prototype? I didn't appear to be molded off tooling, IMO.

    The seekers are pretty much ready, they were definitely molded in color off tooling.

    What will really be funny is if it's cheaper than the reissue G1.

    I suspect MMC pushed up the Seekers as they're cheaper to produce, and they'll recoup costs faster given the shared mold. Remember that they need to recoup some cash to make up for the low margins on Cyclops' first production run.

    So think of them as a cash grab to help fund Hexatron's production.

    I think the testshot was all molded in one color, than hand painted, as my friend mentioned something about it being painted up, when I first saw it. But it was definitely a test shot, not SLA. I did handle it several time, including posing it on Sunday, killing off Goldbug and Darkwind in the display case. :lol 

    I was impressed it could balance on one foot.

    I don't mind if they wait until sometime next year to put it out or next week, either way I'll pre order it the second I see it.

    Poor Hexatron needs his own megathread. There's 4-5 different threads for this guy, and we'll probably have a lot more in the future.
