    I love all things Sixshot but I only have the G1 figure and the Titans Return update and I really like both to be honest. I also had Hexatron and he was pretty good too. To be honest, I have to say worst Sixshot to me is Energon "Sixshot" since he was not a true Sixshot to begin with.

    Gunna need a single vote for worst bot mode to count that one.
    I'm surprised Hanzo is even in the running for that though. He looks really (my opinion) good and fairly G1 accurate in bot mode, and has awesome articulation. Easily my favorite to pose. IMG_20180710_203038.jpg

    TR is best in all accounts.

    Except Robot Mode, that goes to this guy:

    It's not even a joke, I genuinely love the Energon Shockblast mould and no G1 version of Six Shot is all that remarkable to me. Only problem is Six Shot's alt modes are only okay. The tank is decent enough as a Mazer-tank deal, but the satellite mode is... something.

    Yeeaaaaah, but Slplit Lip, we both know that's not remotely the same character in any way except name, so he doesn't count at all. Not to mention there are other figures based on the actual G1 character Sixshot that aren't included in this too. The poll is for best of 4 specific figures near the same size based on the G1 character Sixshot.
    Also I personally prefer the original Energon Shockblast colors on that figure by far over the ugly mustard and plum colors of that version.

    If you squint a little, they all look the same...

    The Titans Return Leader Sixshot is the only one I've ever had, so it's the only one that I care about.

    I'd have to go with G1 for worst bot mode overall then.

    Oh yeah, only an hour and a half left, but if you want your votes to count you'll have to make a choice on the ones you said were a tie.

    I went ahead and included your votes, but for the 2 you gave ties I just broke the tie with my own opinion and picked one.
    Adding up all votes now...

    Final results below, and in the original post now.

    Voting completed! Results below.
    Votes gathered from here and where I posted the same poll at Deviantart.


    Best car mode goes to Titans Return Sixshot with 9 votes. Runner up with 5 votes was the G1 toy.

    Worst car mode goes to DX9 Hanzo with 10 votes. Terminus Hexatron had 6 votes for worst.

    Best jet mode goes to MMC Terminus Hexatron with 9 votes. G1 was very close behind with 8.
    Worst jet mode goes to Dx9 Hanzo with a whopping 15 votes. No other was even over 3 votes. The wheels on top of a fat boat-like thing... Yeah, it's just barely passable.

    Best winged wolf mode goes to Dx9 Hanzo with a juicy 14 votes. It really is a very nice wolf mode with a fairly G1 toon accurate head. Wheels on top is it's only issue.
    Worst winged wolf mode goes to the G1 Sixshot toy with 11 votes. Though the idea was there, it wasn't great then and it's just bad by modern standards.

    Best tank mode goes to Titans Return Sixshot with 8 votes. G1 was runner up with 6 votes.
    Worst tank mode goes to DX9 Hanzo with 12 votes. No cockpit and basically a brick with guns and big wheels on the turret.

    Best gun mode goes to the G1 Sixshot toy with 8 votes. But Terminus Hexatron did get 7 votes. G1 is the only one that has a trigger and for its time still competes with all others well.
    Worst gun mode goes to DX9 Hanzo with a pathetic 16 votes. Probably looks the most like just a robot laying down and with those eye-sore wheels on the front sides.

    Best robot mode goes to Titans Return Sixshot with 11 votes. Did the upgrade kit and decals push it to top votes? I personally disagree on this result because guns are important and TR Sixshot's guns are total crap. He is still a good robot, but I think Hanzo is much better.
    Worst robot mode goes to the G1 Sixshot toy with 11 votes. Nostalgia makes me love him, but almost no articulation and his blocky look makes him poor competition with any others in robot mode.

    And the figure with the most best votes, winner of best Sixshot figure to date, is Titans Return Sixshot with 40 best votes! Hasbro/Takara really did a great job on this guy. His guns sucks bad, but he pulls off his 6 modes quite well.
    The biggest looser with a total of 57 worst votes, is DX9 Hanzo. Really cool robot and wolf mode but his gun and tank modes are just the worst and that car and jet mode aren't very good either.

    G1 had 27 best and 27 worst votes.
    TR had 40 best votes and 9 worst.
    Terminus Hexatron had 29 best votes and 24 worst.

    Hanzo had 24 best votes and 57 worst.

    No surprise whatsoever that the TR figure swept it. Such an amazing update, though I still stand by the LG version. Those colors are phenomenal.

    You should run the poll in the 3P section. Bet the results are a lot different.

    Really surprised Hanzo won worst car mode. It's not the best, but worse than Hexatron? Hexatron doesn't even have a windshield!
