    Chrome works for me. Looks cool enough, now to figure out when I can pick it up.

    Chrome looks great, but I'd be sooo worried about scratching it and flaking it.

    Looks really nice, but I'll wait for MMC's Hexatron.

    Why Takara has a fetish for chrome and shiny paint, I may never know.

    i'm sorry but $185 is just way too much for me.

    i'd prefer a masterpiece version @ $200.

    If it wasn't so horrifically overpriced I'd be all over this. What a great display piece.

    Why the eeeww? :p 

    Care to elaborate? Does it look garish or maybe out of place? maybe gaudy? Too fanciful? So why the...eeewww?

    Or is it along the same line like such things as "Meh", "Not worth the price tag" & so on & so forth?

    Horrifically overpriced is right. They're selling us $5 worth of plastic in a box that costs $179. No thanks! As said above, I'll wait for my Hexatron. Or hell, I could find an original G1 USA or JPN edition for roughly the same price. Shit is bonkers.

    Oh well...I still recall in 2008 when Henkei was first announced, quite a number of people here rant & raved, said they were too expensive, the chrome was too fugly & "I'll stick with my Hasbro ones".

    Well Henkei stuff is still sought-after on Ebay nowadays.... (Henkei Ratchet still fetches a much more higher price than it's Hasbro counterpart despite it's ugly & eeeeww chromey parts).

    Pass. My interest in Transformers ended with the movie toys. I don't think I even knew Sixshot existed until my adult interest in the brand.

    Also, all those modes are pretty damn ugly.

    That shitty chrome kills it. I'd be all over a cheaper chromeless version.

    Agreed. Maybe that's why im not sold on this figure. Also with all the new masterpieces on the verge of release im gonna be pretty broke. As far as i can see all the alt modes dont actually resemble anything much atall without giant leaps of the imagination. but i guess if you liked the original character then hey why not? I bought a g1 ultra magnus reissue and that was a shocking plastic brick lol, but i love him anyways

    Chromey nip-nips.

    (Also, for Christ's sake, Takara photographers, there is an extra damn rotation and nub to bring the arms forward for the car mode and align them with the black chunks at the side of his hood so the mode doesn't have a giant gap in the side. You have been getting this wrong since 1987.)

    Sorry, but the chrome guns are not enough to buy Sixhot again at that inflated price.
