Why does Sixshot need chrome guns? ******.

I'm sure the bigwig collectors are all over this. I'll wait the extra 4 years for a 'tru exclusive' or whatever they do.

And yea, a nice 3rd party Hexatron or whatever it was, would be better at that price. Toy collecting is getting a little too big for its britches in this economy. I live in the US, we're on our way to being a poor country. (thats all Im gonna say about that) :-B

Plus his wings aren't chromed!! Like G1 is.

What a rip off.

I also agree that they will prolly see it as a lack of interest and not acknowledge that it is a WAY overpriced release with too many unnecessary bells and whistles (packaging).

Box is nice, but totally unnecessary. And frankly I think the white guns look better with him than the chrome.

I'll stick with my G1, thanks >:oP

G1 Sixshot had metal only at the base of the wings, not the wings themselves ;)

And it looks like you're paying more for the box than for the figure. Not that that's a bad things mind you, I like keeping my boxes. ;)

The packaging does look textured like leather could be.
I like it, doubt I'll get it.

Well, I can cross my fingers for a regular release and wait. I guess I'll wait until at least Botcon before I start pursuing a previous release.

The paint apps are very nice but this is one of the most overpriced figures of the year.

My preorder on BBTS is still in and I'm keeping it so far. I notice the blue/green paint on his chest is also metallic, which looks really nice and the chrome guns look decent.

I may drop the preorder, but I've got a sneaking suspicion that the price is actually going to drop on this thing at some point prior to release unless there's much more to it that they haven't revealed yet.

I thought that the reason this is so expensive is because it's a convention exclusive? Not available in the shops?

That probably explains the price.
