    Holy shit this looks good. I swore off non combiner third parties last night. Maybe a six changer could slip through the net. 10.5" puts him quite close to Magnus no?

    This looks pretty awesome. First dx9 product that I might actually buy. Hexatron was a POS with lines going north and south and on every body part.

    Magnus is close to 30cm including the antennas but not the shoulder pylons

    Looks very good. But I'll resist. Only S1-3 MP figures for me. I have no personal connection to what came after that. (Maybe if that English fan dub of the Headmasters on youtube would finally proceed....)

    I absolutely get it. Believe me.

    Your opinion. His opinion differs from your's and doesn't require being crapped all over. He made no error for you to correct. Correct yourself.

    See, for me, after Chigurh, Gewalt and Allen, I'm sceptical that DX9 can even manage a Triple changer let alone something with six modes. Their chunky aesthetic kind of works for this character but after seeing the mess they made of Blitzwing tank mode, the Fisher Price feel of Allens bot mode and the skinny mess of Chigurhs bot mode I would need to see detailed pics of ALL modes before even giving this the time of day. There's no denying DX9 have materials and QC down pat but they have yet to pull off a single figure that fits my view of MP/G1 design - Tyrant is probably the closest they've managed. But Sixshot is a low priority for me so I'm content to wait.
    Great news for the die hard DX9 fan though!

    Maybe MakeToys will surprise us with one soon, like with Megatron.

    I say more Sixshot toys the better. I love his design and I love sixchangers. Bring me another. I've come close to pulling the trigger and multiple DX9 figures, but maybe now is the time. I still want Gewalt some day.

    True. But I like Despotron a lot more than fullsize Mightron and MT overall design and materials seems better than DX9, though i do like the legends sized Mightron quite a bit.

    Yeah this guy looks great! I dont have a DX9 product so this will for sure be my 1st purchase from them. They did a great job with the design choices hopefully he is as big as Magnus.

    I want to pre order him now! lol

    So to the top of the head you're looking at 2 cm give or take. That's pretty much perfect. Taking his shoulders into account too they're gonna look very close.

    First product from DX9 that looks really close to character they try to represent.

    Like it.

    I agree but thinking back to the toy it's head was pretty long too.

    I've liked DX9 stuff but it usually seems a bit big and out of scale with what I want in my mp collection. But sixshot I prefer to be on the tall side and since my connection is with the toy and not so much the cartoon it can be skewed.

    I don't like these out of nowhere releases. I like planning out which guys I'm getting over the next few months this will probably compete with fanstoys Grimlock and Galvatron.
