    Before anyone mentions that there aren't six modes here, I don't really care. Remember: Grimlock used to be a dinosaur, Shockwave used to be a laser gun, and Deadend was ment to be Sunstreaker, so why should Sixshot still be the same?

    Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the end product here, and he is probably my best custom to date. He is hand painted with a Prime head & custom coloured reprolabels.

    did you use a nemesis prime head on that?

    or a repainted optimus head?

    or even better a repro head from that guy who makes all the gi joe stuff?

    This looks really nice! Great work! Sixshot remains one of my favorite characters, and I've been thinking about making my own ever since I saw TFM's. I'd take prime.5 up on his suggestion if I were you . . . you never know, I might :) 

    I really like the integration of the racing "6" to suggest the character's namesake. Clever ;)  I also really like how you incorporated the Decepticon faction symbol as part of his racing deco. Also really clever. All around, you've done a really, REALLY stellar job! Keep up the fantastic work!

    Excellent execution.

    Everything else would be repeating what others have said so I'll not bother.

    Great work though!

    That’s Hot! Simply on Fire!

    Good Choice with Head Sculpt. Six Shot always reminded me of Prime!

    That color scheme kicks ass, and the lines are nice and sharp. Good work, bro.

    You inspired/sparked and idea! There hasn’t a great update of sixshot! There should be a classics voyager sixshot! I am planning on making my own. There majority of black instead of white works really well!

    WOW! Totally nailed the colors. Isn't it great when a repro set speaks to you and says "if I was this color I'd be a perfect CharacterX!"

    By the way, as for the 6 modes, do you remember how CRAPPY 6Shots modes were? Put him in Stang mode and angle the legs/butt down. Instant gun! I'm sure you could get a lion and tank mode somehow.

    What would really rock would be some accessories to mirror some/all of the other 4 modes . . . . hmm . . . :D

    Great work! I really love all the colors. I do agree that he doesn't have to have 6 modes. I mean Sixshot could mean anything. It's not like his names is Multi-modicon :tongue:

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm still pretty happy with him, even though he's a few years old now

    Love the paint scheme. Prime's head is perfect for this. Nice job.
