    Meh.

    If Takara are releasing this with any actual intent of undercutting Hexatron, then maybe they should've lost the upgrades and kept the price quite a bit lower.

    For that price, I'd rather get MMC Sixshot

    This was posted in the other Sixshot thread, same info just different seller. Like I said in the other thread, the price would be higher once it's imported...

    How much of that $185 goes toward the fancy-pants box?

    Can't jump on this right now. Too steep of a price. I'll hold off and see if there's a cheaper option.

    I didn't see anything mentioning the chromed guns or metallic paint in the previous news post or in ehobbybaseshop.com's listing.

    Making us pay extra for a fancy box was pushing it, but making all these changes to the figure is a deal breaker for me. I want G1 Sixshot, not Henkei United Sixshot.

    MMC, looks like you're getting my money this round.

    I preordered it. I like that i am getting a minty Sixshot and the metallic paint provided it doesn't look bad would be a plus same for the chromed guns.

    One pics of the new look come out i will decide if i like the look enough to buy it or if i am dropping the preorder.

    My sentiments exactly. The price isn't helping them much.

    I'll get a Sixshot eventually, but I may take another look and see if I can catch a good condition or unused '02 reissue for less than what this is going for. If not, I'll pick up this release eventually just so I can finally a G1 Sixshot to my collection.

    What's the point of this uber exclusive Sixshot? Why would I want a Sixshot with metallic paint & chrome guns? & they want $150-185 for it?! If they produce anymore than 500 of them, TakTom are gonna have a hell of alot of unwanted stock on their hands...

    Because Sixshot is awesome! He needs more love! We need a Masterpiece Sixshot and a Generations Sixshot and a Kreo Sixshot and a movie Sixshot! Sixshot is going to be the new Bumblebee! He's going to everywhere! Just stop fighting it and embrace it! Sixshot for Transformers Hall of Fame 2013! The movement starts here!
