New Age H2EX Martini Manero

The hyper-detailed Martini Manero from New Age Toys has arrived at JunkionHQ!

The Box

Originally announced as H2EX, Martini Manero’s packaging is labeled 02M. Like with G2 Manero, I’m sticking with the original numbering for this post and my unofficial catalog.

Inside the box you get all the same accessories that came with the original version.

The Robot

Like the original release, the robot mode is clever and fun, the best we’ve seen in this line so far, now with beautiful details.

They even painted the tiny little details on Manero’s chest.

The Porsche

Here’s where the new details really shine, it truly looks like a shrunken down version of the original toy.

The Conclusion

The Legendary Heroes line is occasionally referred to as “mini-Masterpieces” and, for me, this release fits that description perfectly. My perfect Masterpiece is an accurate real-world vehicle mode, like Diaclone, paired with a robot mode that strikes a balance between the cartoon and the original toy.

Stacked Masterpieces
A tiny masterpiece indeed!
