    UPDATE: I noticed his arms were a bit too long so I took him back to the shop, re-did his hand connections so they fit further into his wrist, and cut some length from his elbow joint part. The first pic (uploaded- seen in the thread preview and first in the pics at the bottom) shows the difference, small as it is.
    I also added shots of how the guns combine, as requested.


    So here he is in all 6 modes, including his newly tweaked out alternate Jet and Gun modes. Its G1 Sixshot, rebuilt for more modern articulation, extra details, and some new weapons, by me!
    The plan was to make one of my all time favorite figures here into a Masterpiece toyline worthy display piece while keeping all 6 modes and retaining stability and all functionality. It is MP- 666!
    The WIP that I previously posted shows how I did the new articulation. As you can see, i went with a new approach to remove the "diaper" look he had.
    His new highly articulated robot hands (Fakebuster rocks!) can store in his legs in tank and gun modes (inside the compartment with doors, there are peg holes) and can be stored under the wings or in other places in other modes.
    The sword can be stored in several ways in every mode too, though i forgot to show the bayonet it make in gun mode.
    Sixshot also has 2 new articulated smaller blasters which have a place in every mode to add some extra firepower.
    All weapons store on Sixshot's back in bot mode.

    I added rocket pods to the tank mode, which hide away in all other modes except gun mode.
    Added styrene and sculpt to improve the wolf head, then painted in metal front braces on the tank cockpit which look like teeth when the wolf mouth is opened.
    Made the guns link together and modded the trigger up the wolf's ass to hold the combined guns as a tail.

    It was starting to get dark so I rushed a bit on the pics. Sorry not everything is lined up perfect in all the shots. It actually is very sturdy and everything goes together nearly perfectly- the product of lots of measuring, cutting, and re-doing things until I got them just right.

    Okay so other than that, I repainted everything except the purple parts, and gave him shiny new stickers.

    Hope you guys like him!

    After seeing the pic on black background and knowing he has too much white for my usual white background, I'm sure you guys can see why I took the pics outside.

    Wow, you nailed it! A bit too clean of a paint job for my taste some panel lining would be nice, but the build is awesome. Well done.

    The sucky thing is, its there! I actually did do light gray washes and white drybrushing over that so there are shadows around every detail in the white parts. You just can't really see it much with the lighting I guess. The teal has a very dark teal ink wash too, but you can see that pretty well.

    I am noticing in these pics a couple of little spots where I could touch up the paint.

    Yeah man, but those flucking things were so hard to put together... My fingers still hurt. Amazing they were so strong that those tiny ball joints didn't break.
    Definitely recommend the black version, though it cost a bit more.

    Awesome custom, definitely a masterpiece.

    But can he still form the infamous winged wolf mode?

    Thanks guys! This was a hell of a lot of work although it may not look all that much different. Sixshot has always been a big fav for me so I'm glad I finally got the nuts to do this.

    Yep, there are a few pics of the wolf mode in the mix. Maybe you mean the weird "secret 7th mode" of a wolf-jet griffon thing? I don't count that one, but yeah he can turn into that too.

    I really don't know. Just the most fitting thing in the swords bag I had.

    Ahhh yeah. Its already tough to make out in big pics on a monitor. Its just mild aging effects for realism though. He's not dirtied or worn and the guns are totally clean, so if you don't like the the clean look, I getcha.
