It's nice, i'll give it that if anything it look's really nice. I've also been wanting a Sixshot for awhile now. However those two factors alone aren't enough to make me pay what they're asking for it.
However this here makes me curious. That's far from a silhouette of the G1 figure, which makes me wonder...
I just learned that the silhouette is actually an illustration done by Blitzwing from DevianArt. The image was used without the artist's consent. The person that took the image to pass on as his own design probably needs some talking to.
Oh snap... ironic that it's now TT/Hasbro appropriating other people's work.
With Sixshot I'm always surprised at the way the armored truck mode is transformed:
I know this is the prefered and 'official' way the armored truck mode is (mis-)transformered in for Sixshot, but I always feel this mode looks better when the arms / wheels are moved al the way forward, losing the front-heavy look which to me just looks weird.
This is the way I transform the truck mode:
As for this release: Eugh, the teal chrome, so tacky! It's a bit too much. And judging by how my RiD Ultra Magnus' chrome is holding up, I have my doubts about whether colored chrome is ever a good idea.
I need to get some Reprolabels and another gun for my Original G1 Sixshot.

I can relate to this in some ways. Mostly because Sixshot did not have a major role in the U.S. portion of The Transformers. He held a brief role in what was supposed to be the Hasbro portion of The Transformers' fourth season ("The Rebirth").
However, he did have a bigger role in the Takara portion of The Transformers (Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers). Namely the fourth season (third TV series, following 2010) titled "The Headmasters." He had a larger role in that series, and I do recommend checking it out if you want to want to know more about the character.
Other than that, I was never particularly interested in this character (and a few others) for the same reason, prior to my "big" return to this franchise. And after that, I am hoping that Takara Tomy will do an Encore release of the character because this version does him no justice at all.

Agreed. As I said, he's in my PoL already. I have a complete G1 Sixshot already and he's in great shape (might actually be the reissue, I'm not sure and don't really care
I had this figure as a kid and he was one of my favorites. His bot mode just screams 'Decepticon' to me and all his modes make him a fun figure to play around with, kinda like the Rubix Cube of Transformers.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I am that which is, which was, and is yet to come.
And you will know my name is MEGATRON when I lay my vengeance upon you!

I have an original one that I couldnt figure out how to transform for the life of me since it didnt come with instructions. Made need to dust him off and display him. Not sure if I have his guns though

Honestly? I wouldn't mind more of these premium G1 releases. If you are going to reissue the same old G1 figures over and over again instead of something that has never been reissued before (I am looking at you expensive hard to find G1 Japanese releases) you might as well do something flashy with them. This last release of Prediking was going in the right direction with the gold insted of the tired yellow. The only thing that would make it better would be domestic releases so as to not have to pay import prices.
People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.
