    Today I bought a KO Sixshot that is smaller than the original, around mega/voyager size. He comes in G1 accurate colors, although guns and the wings are a different color, wings are purple and the guns are green, while the original has them grey.

    Quality is pretty good for a KO, I was expecting him to be POS but it turned out he's really nice. He was packed in robot mode on a pretty big card that is 37.5 cm X 26.5cm, and was able to "survive" being transformed 2 times to every mode in less then 30 minutes without tangible change for the worst in the joint and stress department. But there are some things that aren't aligning right like his lower legs in AAA battery mode (just check the pics bellow).

    Individual modes:
    - robot mode

    Pretty good, solid mode. Looks really nice in his G1 colors. The decals are pain in the ass though, but I wasn't expecting anything much there. He's G1 so he's basically a brick. His legs can bend at the knees to the back and front. His arms can swivel up and down, but if you deploy his shoulder wings he can lift his arms about 30 degrees only. He can also swivel his arms at the elbows, for a gangsta showdown, but that's a part of the transformation sequence, nothing else. Here's a pic of him beside Armada Megatron:

    - anti-aircraft artillery mode

    This is one of the most solid modes he can take. And cool looking too. Holds great in this mode.


    - gun mode

    He actually holds pretty good in this mode. I was expecting this mode to be the weakest. His wings connect securely to form the handle, I could detach them also without no problems, they're made of a pretty good plastic. The connection piece looks like it can take some abuse, but don't take my word for it, be carefull anyway.


    - starfighter mode

    This also a great mode. The toy holds great in it. Not much else to say. Just look at the pics.

    - armoured car mode

    [​IMG]

    This is the weakest mode of them all. Not bad looking, but meh, he can't hold pretty well.


    - tiger mode

    This is a nice mode. I like it. His head swiveling joint is somewhat loose, so he can droop his head if you apply some pressure.


    Conclusion:

    I think this toy is worth 600 dinars (10 USD) it cost me. Pretty nice substitute for the real thing, with better proportions IMHO. If you can, get it!

    There's a fair going on in my neighbourhood so I picked him up. Saw a bunch of other KOs, a Menasor giftset (Super container car, anyone has him?? How's the quality?), RM Victory Saber with a disk, cyb. Dirtboss, en. Bulkhead, en. Sharkticon etc.

    Some of those look kinda cool.

    I love the Technobots in the Abominus set... hahaha.

    The Sixshot actually looks pretty awesome.

    There's at least fifty of these things on Ebay at the moment. I was wondering if they were worthwhile.

    The Sixshot KO has been discontinued.
    So if you really want one, grab one of the remaining ones on Ebay before they are gone forever.

    I have one, they are roughly half the size of the original Sixshot. They are OK but a lot of the joints(at least on mine) were loose.

    I'm very satisfied with mine, he has some joints kinda loosish, but nothing drastic, as they were like that from the package. Overall an excellent substitute for the original, for the price I payed.

    1. This is smaller. Some people like smaller
    2. It's cheaper. Not everyone has $50+ to drop on a nice original.

    I also don't like to buy used toys, they are usually dusty among other things. So I bought a nice clean minty KO :D  Nice pics Razorclaw. Although yours looks alot sturdier then mine.

    Discontinued? Does this imply it will only be available en masse on Ebay for the next three or four years?
