    I keep going back and forth on this guy but if anybody had him this second, I'd definitely have ordered one by now. I guess it's just jitters from all these other "no brainer" figures that I PO on what what seems like a daily basis.

    Yes, but this is from the Japanese. They are the masters of taking completely ridiculous things, and throwing dramatic angles, music and yelling at something until it's awesome.

    Look at GaoGaiGar. Giant mech combines with another mech which gives it... a comically oversized hand, and a gigantic squeeky hammer. On paper it's fundamentally ridiculous. But they play it perfectly straight. And it works.

    These people make playing a card game dramatic.

    Preordered and will be my first Phase Sixer reporting to Hegemon. Now patiently waiting for a Overlord of the same size. Then of course, I would want a similar Black Shadow and then members of the DJD and - OH GOOD LORD!! see what you have started MMC???? LOL

    This one is 15 or so years old, but has perfect transformation and is fairly posable. And it will run you from 50 to 100 USD depending on your luck :)

    Man, I'm so torn on this figure. Sixshot meant a lot to me as a kid, it was the only TF I ever kept mint in box in a time when MIB meant nothing to anyone. I still have him stored away in my closet.

    I want to get Hexatron, but I can't unsee the horrendous detailing, especially on the legs. All I see are ridges upon ridges, like they hired a high schooler from craigslist to add detail to their designs. I could easily pay over $200 for this if it had professional level detailing, but over $100 for the way it is now? He'd look so out of place with my MP collection, I'd have to start collecting Bionicle so I can display him with his own kind.

    They have designs for them, so I hope so. Shadow Maru is the version I plan on getting.

    Same here this figure is flawless in my opinion and all the ppl complain about detailing on him are just stupid. If he didnt have any detail then they would complain about him not looking anything from MMC .Sheesh. MMC signiture move is making there stuff with beautiful detail like the Cyclops.

    Do you guys not see the ridges all over the body? I don't mind them so much but it does seem a little bit extraneous to me. The white gun handle/wings and the purple portion of the legs are the biggest offenders. I prefer mechanical details over a textural pattern like that. If I could affor the figure I would surely be getting it but this is the only fault I perceive in its design.
