Head Master

All posts tagged Head Master

Sixshot is vile, nasty and carries out his job with ferocious intensity. He is a “Solo Transformer Assault Group” seeing he transforms into six forms (Robot, armored car, tank, gun, spaceship and wolf creature) His only redeeming quality is he tends to speak well of the foes he has vanquished. 

 

Name: Sixshot
Line: Transformers Titans Return
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Released:
2016
Price: 89.99 AUD
Scale: Roughly  26 cm in height (including those wings)
Accessories: Two Blaster Weapons, Revolver mini figure, Tech Spec card


Yet another addition to my small yet ever-growing Transformers Titans Return collection of toys, even although the bulk of my collection is from Takara Tomy, I still have picked up a couple of Hasbro offerings here and there. Sixshot being one of them.

SCULPTING

Hasbro has done a great job here, Sixshot is covered in detail! Plenty of raised sections, paneling etc to make him look quite good, in robot mode and any of his other six modes too. He’s very much a modern update of the original toy in design and execution.

PAINT

There’s not too much paint on Sixshot, it’s mainly just used for small details. I’m fine with that, they just help to break up the solid blocks of plastic. What paint we do have, is nice and neat overall. The stickers are a nice touch too, just try to get one with them lined up decently.

ARTICULATION

Sixshot has a lot of ball joints, swivel joints and hinge joints, which makes him really fun to play around with. You can get a lot of good poses out of him, I just wish the ankle joints wouldn’t snap into certain angles, so it would make it more fun to pose him that way.

ACCESSORIES

Sixshot comes with two guns and the Titan Master mini figure, that turns into his head. The guns are pretty cool with plenty of detail, they can even be combined together to make a larger gun the mini figure can sit in.

The Titan Master mini figure is all kinds of cool! He’s got articulated head, arms, and legs, the only thing I don’t like about the Hasbro version is that Hasbro doesn’t tend to paint the faces of them, whereas Takara does!

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

I can’t really see anything to watch out for, except you could misplace the mini figure if you aren’t careful!

PRICE

I paid the Australian retail price of 89.99 AUD for Sixshot. I don’t think that’s too bad of a price, I bought mine from my local Toys ‘R’ Us and they had a few there so it was pretty easy to pick one with a good paint application. I don’t do too much purchasing from actual brick and mortar stores these days, but it’s always been a pleasant experience when I have.

OVERALL

Much like Triggerhappy, Sixshot is an excellent upgrade of the original toy using today’s technology, he has a really nice design and has plenty of play options being a six mode transformer! What more could you ask for? I don’t know, but I’m very happy with my purchase and the toy in general.

Triggerhappy is wild and unpredictable, apparently too busy laughing uncontrollably to look where he’s shooting and loves the sound of his guns blasting away. He transforms into a Cybertronian Starfighter and is partnered with Titan Master Blowpipe.

 

Name: Triggerhappy
Line: Transformers Titans Return
Manufacturer: Hasbro
Released:
2016
Price: 24.99 AUD
Scale: Roughly 14.5 cm in height
Accessories: Two Blaster Weapons, Blowpipe mini figure, Tech Spec card

 

I didn’t really want to get sucked into buying anything from Hasbro’s Titans Return line initially. Even after the reveal of  Skullcruncher, I thought the design looked amazing but, I didn’t want to commit if they were just going to drop the ball like Combiner Wars did.

Unfortunately for me, I came across Triggerhappy in Big W out at Rouse Hill last month and after staring at the toy in package for about 30 seconds I knew I was picking it up then and there.

Now I’ve managed to pick up some of Takara’s offerings (Skullcruncher, High Brow etc.) you can pretty much say I’m all in. If Triggerhappy didn’t do it, Trypticon, certainly would have.

SCULPTING

Hasbro have done a great job here, Triggerhappy is absolutely covered in detail! Plenty of raised sections, paneling etc to make him look quite good, in both robot and plane mode. I really like the head design too, finally, a Triggerhappy toy has a cartoon accurate face!

PAINT

There’s not too much paint on Triggerhappy, it’s mainly just used for small details. I’m fine with that, they just help to break up the solid blocks of dark blue and grey. What paint we do have, is nice and neat overall.

ARTICULATION

Triggerhappy has a lot of ball joints, swivel joints and hinge joints, which makes him really fun to play around with. Most importantly the shoulders and hips are ball joints, this really helps you achieve some great poses. If I had one complaint, it’s that his feet don’t pivot so it makes it hard to stand him up properly, the further apart his legs get.

ACCESSORIES

Triggerhappy comes with two guns and the Titan Master mini figure, that turns into his head. The guns are pretty cool with plenty of detail, they can even be combined together to make a larger gun the mini figure can sit in.

The Titan Master mini figure is all kinds of cool! He’s got articulated head, arms, and legs, the only thing I don’t like about the Hasbro version is that Hasbro doesn’t tend to paint the faces of them, whereas Takara does!

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS

I can’t really see anything to watch out for, except you could misplace the mini figure if you aren’t careful!

PRICE

I paid about 24.99 AUD for Triggerhappy. I normally don’t purchase toys from stores locally, but I’ll make the exception if I want to try and get one with a good paint job. For the price, I’m quite happy with what you get in the blister card.

OVERALL

Triggerhappy is a great addition to the Titan Returns Toy line. He’s what you would expect when you take an older toy or character design and update it, it’s good to see this happening not only in just the masterpiece line anymore, as I really think Hasbro are doing an excellent job with Titans Return so far! It will be interesting to see if Takara plans to release their own version and how much it will differ from Hasbro’s.
