    I've never seen this before, and wondering if it is a KO, or kitbash or what.
    Perhaps, I've just never seen it, but it looks nice.

    Anyone know wth it is?

    That'd be the US-release version of Micron Six-Combiner "Six-Builder" which was recolored for the US market (this one) and as the chase-version (slightly different, actually less nice) in the blind-pack Japanese reissue as Devestator.

    In his proper colors he's one of stars of "Operation-Combination" arguably the very very very last Japanese G1 story line.

    ahhh, so he's tiny?

    it's a cool mold though, would be nice if it were larger scale.

    Yeah, it was sold as part of the Universe line way back.

    The original Sixbuild toy was available as a green&purple chase version like this but the Hasbro version (pictured here) has much more intricate paint details.

    That was a KB toys exclusive Micromaster reissue in Devistator colors as stated before. Unfortunately they've been out of stock for a year or two. You can however still get the Micromaster Plane reissue set painted up like G1 Superion on KB's website if you wish.

    All of the combiner pieces can combine into a jet, with the gun becoming the nosecone.

    Its a nice little bonus :)

    Awesome figs - and as a matter of fact, not that small - the combined mode is about Voyager size.

    Nice little display, by the way, DJ... but what's the deal with Monstructor's sword and Black Sixturbo's axe..?

    i found them at KB quite a while back for 2.99 each. i snatched them. i later ordered the superion set online.
    i found like 2 of the defensor set, but never bought them- never did find the rest of them.

    to me, with the bonus things you could do with the combiner parts, this is how gestalts shoulda been done.
    had they made G1 Devy like this and in the original size, i woulda been overwhelmed with joy.

    He's taller than you would expect. I highly recommend him.

    Here are some comparisson shots with the only combiners I own (That's a KO G1 Devastator there btw).

    It doesn't say that anywhere, just that it's of comparable quality to the original. It's definitely a bootleg.

    It's a damn fine one, though - I'd love one or two of those. I knew oversized KOs of them existed, but I didn't realise it was that big.
