New Age H9EX Hynkel

The chromed version of Agamenmnon has arrived!

The Box

As appropriate for a toy-inspired repaint, the packaging is based on the G1 box.

Inside the box are all of the same pieces included with Agamenmnon:

  • Sight/Fusion Cannon
  • Orange barrel plug
  • 2x pointing hands
  • 2x open hands
  • Smiling face
  • Silencer
  • Stock stem
  • Stock base
  • Key to Vector Sigma
  • Energy mace
  • Movie pistol
  • Pistol mode effects adapter (matte grey)
Hynkel box contents

Due to the sheer number of accessories included with the H9 figures, there is a second insert to contain them.

The Initial Premium

Unexpectedly, Hynkel includes the same “Initial Premium” pack that Agamenmnon did.

The Comparisons

To match up with the chrome paint job, the pistol accessories are gloss black for Hynkel instead of the matte black for Agamenmnon.

The Conclusion

I’m having real trouble deciding which version I like best. Hynkel’s chrome paint and red accents really pop.
