    I've been thinking about a modern incarnation of Sixshot and how it could possibly be pulled off. Has anyone ever made one, much less attempted to? It'd be a highly involved custom.

    I've thought about it as being a Masterpiece or perhaps a larger size class from Universe. Then I thought about making it as small as a deluxe while using the Mirage mold as a possible base. It's pretty fun to think of the possibilities.

    Anyway, with anovassin's thread about a kitbashing competition, I thought it would be cool if this ended up being the challenge of choice.

    But where would you even start?

    Personally, I'd rather he not be done that way.

    For this, I'd much rather have 1 robot with 6 legit modes as opposed to multiple robots. And I love combiners, don't get me wrong. I just think people are letting the concept get to their head a little.

    i actually have been thinking about doing this for a while. I don't have anything concrete down yet but I was thinking I would start with maybe Onslaughts body and work from there. Lots of mixing and matching of parts but I think it can be done.

    A lot of parts from Optimal Optimus could work for Sixshot (mainly the wings and wheels).

    i was thinking abouut it a while ago when i done quickswitch, picked cyb megatron as he already had 3 modes to start you off, and g1 bruticus head seemed to be a good fit for him..

    not took it any further though

    I did a search. Found a few WIP postings and a tutorial. Is it in his Radicon of the Month thread?

    I really really really do hope that someone could pull off a more modern updated sixshot. I love this guy. He was one of the first toys I had. Brings back memories...

    It would be totally mind blowing if Sixshot could be reborn!

    This would be a great challenge. I just don't know of any larger sized bots that have 6 decent modes. I was thinking of a universe onslaught with 6 guns, but i know that's cheating...!

    Ryu's is awesome, seen it a while ago. I actually have a commission to do Six-shot, and might go a similar route as Ryu's, I bought 2 scrapper Sixshots to toy with, I'm drawing many blanks....I might be using xover hulk as the base, and/or onslaught's arms/legs....it's a tough one.

    it might be possible to use some legeo technic parts sets to give him a real working set of geared tank treads for the upper and lower arms.

    as for giving him enhanced posibility i would suggest salvageing joints from either those lego knight sets or the lego exofrorce sets as they would make for a good set of joints to work with to give him a better range of momvement through the shoulders arms head/neck hips and upper legs.

    SixShot can be done, I'm sure of it. If you ask for a TenShot, there would be a Radicon that could pull it off! Nothing is impossible! That being said, I'd like to see some more SixShot bashes!

    I have honestly planned to do a Masterpiece Sixshot sometime in the future, most likely after I finish my line of Decepticon G1-era combiners. I know it will be the most difficult thing that I'll have attempted at that point, and therefore I want my skills to be at their peak before I even attempt it.

    This may sound corny, but it will be my tribute to both TFMaster for initial inspiration, as well as the kitbashing community as a whole, for bettering myself in what we do all along the way. That being said, once finished, I'm dropping it like its hot, chucking some deuces, and getting the eff out this biyotch. :>
