    I received this email from my brother:

    "Local comic shop has a loose Six Shot for $30. Both the guns are present and his spec card, but no instructions. There’s no obvious damage, but I don’t really know what to look for. You wouldn’t happen to know how to determine if he’s worth it, would you? I want to get him, but I have no idea what to look for to determine if he’s good or not."

    Does anyone know where I can find the info he is looking for or have the answer?

    Assuming it's in good condition overall, $30 is a good if not very good deal.

    Sixshot is pretty durable, Chrome wear is one potential problem however.

    I paid $100 at a toy show for my like new G1 in box Sixshot.

    Get that TF before someone else beats you to it!

    No instructions... that will be fun figuring out. Maybe there are scans online?

    Slag it, just get him!

    Hey all -

    I would be the brother in the original post. I picked up the piece. Seems like I got a pretty good deal. The joints are pretty tight, not too much scuffing, and the chrome looks pretty good. Outside of the lack of instructions, the only negative so far is an odd smell. He smells like grandma's house. Not too overpowering though. A good dusting and it should be good to go.

    That is a killer deal for Sixshot. I just got him recently with guns but without tech and I paid more than that. Congrats!

    My guess would The Lecturer in Recent Runes.

    And yes, $30 is what I paid for my loose complete Sixshot and I thought that was a great deal as well.

    I don't know, do you require proof?

    Robert is number three. I like Ponder. He's a Rocket Wizard.
