Thanks for the reminder, Sabrblade. It makes me think that Hasbro might be the one who has the Sixshot mold, and is the one distributing it on behalf of Takara Tomy. And even then, I do not like their decision to make it this way and only recommend it to those who want to have all variations of the character, and have both the U.S. and Japan versions... And want a third one to the set.

And to be honest, this makes me want to do more research on Transformers... As it kind of has that "New Age Diaclone" feel for me. >:oP Namely, we're hearing about variations and reissues of Generation 1 characters, in a similar manner Diaclone and other lines were reissued as Transformers.

Well, counting this release, the G1 Sixshot mold has been released more than just three times.
  • 1987 Hasbro release
  • 1987 Takara release
  • 2002 Takara rerelease
  • 2002 Takara Lucky Draw Sixshot Stealth Mode
  • 2002 Takara Lucky Draw Sixshot Shadow Mode
  • 2012 TakaraTomy Destron Sixshot metallic rerelease

Good point, but I could not count the Lucky Draws as part of this since they were not marketed. And even then, I wonder if a MIB version of either one is cheaper than the new Asian Market version. :P

That, and a MIB 1987 Takara version is rarer than a MIB 1987 Hasbro version. So for the non-hardcore buyer, a collector may just get the 1987 Hasbro version and the 2002 Takara reissue. Which has me wonder if if this is going to be cheaper than just getting the 2012 Asian Market version at one of those stores that want to be rid of them. :P

Bazinga. But seriously though... I wanted to thank you for the dates on those. That, and talking about this has made me hope to find a MISB Takara Sixshot, even though I also hope that they will do an Encore version. :BOOM:

I'd rather pay the extra $35 and buy Sixshot as opposed to the $150 retailers are asking for Artfire. To me, it makes more sense to pay an extra $35 and get 4 more modes. Each to their own, of course.

At that price, they should have given a few extra upgrades, like die-cast parts and rubber tires. Oh well, we'll just have to wait for MP Sixshot (don't tell me it'll never happen, I enjoy my dreams/delusions).

It's supposed to be out Oct/Nov.


I'm starting to have my doubts about the dates the 3rd party Sixshot is expected to be released. Don't get me wrong, I'm not doubting your information, I just suspect those dates will change and be pushed back considering there's been absolutely nothing more mentioned or "the latest pics" posted of this creation.
