    Got the green one for around $110 shipped on ebay and it was in quite a bit better shape than the teal one i got back when those first came out. less random paint defects or marks on the panels, etc. so that was encouraging. not sure if I'll keep both, but for now they share a shelf with Carnifex and Terminus Hexatron Shadow Emissary.

    I agree. I really like how they did the hind legs.

    Finally caved on this guy and just picked up the green version from Baba.


    I'm looking forward to putting him on my shelf.

    I just got ahold of one for a good price and I'm pretty darn happy with it. Happy to have it on the shelf. Hope you like yours!

    Finally on board after picking up an insanely cheap copy in the HM blue too which I prefer. Very happy!

    At worst, it's a very good placeholder.

    For circa $80 it doesn't matter how good ft version is and I honestly doubt it'll be any better articulated, it'll just be heavier.

    $80? Yeah for that price it's a no-brainer, and honestly who actually displays Sixshot in his altmodes except maybe the wolf, which this one knocks out the park? As a representation of Sixshot's robot mode it's pretty much spot-on, and where it's different I think I might prefer DX9's details (like the legs)

    I'm glad you guys are enjoying him. I couldn't be happier with mine. I have become a big fan of DX9. Their Sixshot, Megatron, Galvatron, and Rodimus are all great. If I collected legends stuff I'll bet those are good too. Definitely looking hard at their Omega Supreme.

    I'm glad you're happy and I love diecast when used right but when it starts affecting joints? Fuck that.

    I keep forgetting the blue text.


    The amounts of it (diecast) actually made me sell Sovereign. It's got diecast up the ass in ways that are not even favorable for pose-ability and overall fun.

    U know, a character like sixshot deserves multiple figures. Imagine displaying dx9 hanzo in wolf mode and fantoys' sixshot in robot mode. And bring in the other Sixshots and display em in their best modes. That makes the purchases worth it...

    *winces in disgust at sixshot's gun mode. But really likes it bcs geeeewun

    you either die as a laughable character with bad alts, or live to see your alts become iconic
