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.
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.
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.
