    lets start by giving full credit for this idea to darrenmea, I saw his WIP thread and thought it was an excellent choice of mold, hopefully mine has turned out a bit different than his.

    there is parts forming for the alt modes, but what I have done is make the weapons into the partsforming peices, he has a rocket launcher for the mudflap mold, a large gun for using in tank mode, a sheild for using in jet mode and 2 small guns for some modes.

    his modes are (In order)

    robot
    cat
    jet
    tank
    armored transport (like G1 onslaught)
    gun

    I added some shots of him with my custom quick swutch aswell,

    hope you like

    That works really nicely. The only thing I'd say is he doesn't look as imposing as Sixshot should in 'bot mode, but apart from that - VERY nice work :D

    Took a crap mold and made it 1000 times better. Hero Prime looks just as good.

    That really came out impressively. Seemed like a total stretch to me when I first saw your earlier post but you pulled it off nicely. I'd maybe find a more menacing head but it really does look good.
    Very cool Quickswitch by the way, considering the original is probably the lousiest p.o.s. bot ever made!
    Congrats!!

    AWESOME! although i will say you might want to change the head out it still looks a little too mudflapish. other that great work! and that custom quickswitch is really badass!

    Wow... that turned out surprisingly well! I was much more skeptical about this mold as Sixshot, but you've sold it! Cool!

    I agree with the comments about the head, can't seem to find anything that says sixshot, any suggestions

    I think you should modify your own head, to really get it down. A head that isn't so wide will also make the body look a little larger, too. this is cool.

    RE: the head... I'd go with something from a Prime base. Sixshot's head is really not so far different from Optimus'. The main difference is the absence of the prominent "ear" antennae, so some creative resculpting of a Classics Optimus head might be a place to start.
