Up untill now I was under the impression that this was a Takara reissue. It's Hasbro... Sorta surprises me.

Looks great but I'm not willing to pay what they are wanting. you can get a 100% complete original Sixshot for less on ebay.

Since this is a Hasbro release I wonder what are the chances of it getting released here in the US.

I want to know what the latest news is on the 3rd party Sixshot, the one that has all those points of articulation and still transforms into six different modes. I haven't seen or heard anything since the prototype was displayed at one of the conventions earlier in the year.

Ah, okay. Then he's as big as I expected him to be.

These pics just make him look bigger, jet and gun modes especially.

Much like RhA, I thought that this was a Takara Tomy release. Especially since they did Alternity's "Dai Atras" and the Asian Market "QC variant" (Quality Control joke) Devastator.

But seeing how I still do not like the appearance of the box, do not like both the unneeded chrome and "metallic" paint, and no longer buy Hasbro-based Transformers... Three strikes, and it is definitely out of my collection list.

(Now if Takara Tomy will do an Encore version... Then I'll prepare to have the cash in my hand.)

Last week when I wnet to collect my AM Knockout and Starscream, the hobby shop owner was practically begging me to buy one of these Sixshot reissues.

Didn't buy it, though. Couldn't afford it as a kid back then, so it holds no nostalgic value to me.

Seems like they ain't selling so well in Asia, or at least in my neck of the woods.

As much as I'd love to pick up Sixshot, they're asking far too much. It really is a shame too, when I first heard the words "Sixshot Reissue" I was expecting an affordable solution to my Sixshot problem (i.e. I don't have one :P and I love everything about it). But no luck for the community on that mark.

I didn't realize this was a Hasbro release either. That explains why only one part of it (the chest) have new metallic paint (Takara likely would have painted the entire figure in metallic paints, or at LEAST all the teal/green parts).

I'll keep it in the POL for now, but I'll definitely be considering cancelling, especially if something sweeter comes along that's worth $200 to me between now and then.

I don't know... It's kinda selfish for my part, but I just wish Takara or Hasbro will stop reissuing G1 toys. That's the reason why I'm selling most of my G1 toys, I'm afraid that TF toys I kept will no longer be rare or unique even if it's original. :-(

In the case of Transformers, I have to strongly believe that you should have absolutely no worries about that. :lol:

Lets use Predaking as an example: There were the individual box sets, then the first Japanese gift set, the second (first reissue) Japanese giftset, and the third (second reissue) Japanese giftset. The first reissue, in terms of the giftset, was the same packaging but sported an additional label. The second giftset not only sported a completely new box, but also sported what some might refer to as the more "cartoon/anime accurate colors" for the characters in the set.

Beyond that, Takara has a long history of making subtle differences when it comes to reissues. Be it Ginrai or even Henkei! Hot Rodimus. They always try to make the differences be tied to everything or anything from subtle paint/color differences to both the boxing and how it was packaged.

In other words, while I nothing when it comes to Hasbro's work with the franchise these days (besides the difference they do when they issue their own version of certain characters)... I can reassure you that if they do an Encore of Galvatron, Sixshot, Fortress Maximus, or any other character we are clamoring for, they will have changes that keep your collection from losing their uniqueness and value. ;)

I really wanted him, but I simply can't justify the expense. :-(

Hmmm... Hasbro? Well so it will see regular retail in asia? Preorders from collector shops here (in asia) are not selling well too... Price has gone down $10 since it was listed. Well, you coulld buy a legit g1 for slightly cheaper than that price ...

Wait a sec. The last images we saw of this figure CLEARLY had the TakaraTomy logo on the box. Maybe it's just being distributed by Hasbro Asia instead of "released" by them?

I bet you're right. Even BBTS lists it as 'by Takara' not 'by Hasbro', and I'm pretty sure their supplier IS the manufacturer in the case of both companies, so if it were coming from Hasbro, BBTS would know it because that's who they'd be getting their order/invoice info from for stocking preorders.
