Will be expensive??? Easily pass for me. Got the regular issue already. Save me some money for the moment.

When the Takara panel at the Singapore Cybertron Convention was asked whether they planned on releasing SixShot "without the leather pants" for a reduced rate, they said "We have no plans."

So yes. Expensive. :-(

At first I was like :BOWDOWN: .
But then I saw "expensive" and "leather parts" and I was like :BANG_HEAD: .

Can anyone enlighten me why he would have leather parts? o_O I know next to nothing about Sixshot, but I've seen reviews and he tickles every part of what I love about g1 stuff. But if the reissue is going to be as expensive as/more expensive than the original version is right now...ugh. :sad:

The answer is in "Premium packaging" as in the box he comes in is made from leather, not the toy.

i still have the original in mint condition and the box is mint too. i barely played with it so it literally looks and works as good as the day i got it. i wonder if he'll be worth more once the re-issue hits...not that i'd sell it but you know. lol

Meh.....I'm basically done collecting G1 figures. I want a Generations/Classic's version.

Premium packaging does nothing for, I'm all about the figure. Good thing I already have a G1.

Well looks like Sixshot will remain on the list of figures that i really want but will never get. Hell id settle for a KO version but i cant even get one of those.

Get your shit together, Takara/Tomy. We don't need more extravagant boxes than the TFCC produces for any figure or reissue. I don't care what character it is. I want Sixshot but I certainly have a cost range I won't go out of for him. He isn't high enough on my list of collecting priorities.
:BOT:

Disappointed by this, really wanted him.

However, if Sixshot is not part of the Encore series (as originally suggested) I wonder who/what will now be Encore 23, any thoughts?

Man, I'm glad I picked up an original at Botcon a few years back. I think I got him for $60, no broken parts, no yellowing and complete. Considering nowadays he's probably even double that, I'm not sure how well the reissue will fair...

Leather and chrome parts on the box?!

Oh yea! This awesome!

I've always wanted packaging with such added highlights. I know I'm not alone, tons of fans have been clamoring for more packaging and using higher end materials for a long time. Cause this is what the fans want, fancy boxes, the contents inside....not so much.
