Surprised all those modes aren't 10 in every area.
Certainly jet beats a speed of 4.
look at it this way
he has a speed of 4 compared to other jets.
Who travels faster? Certainly not Starscream.
Why not Starscream?
Starscream does'nt have a beast mode ass folded up in his jetmode.
Because Stars was an Earthern model Jet.
Chaos, you really think Hasbro took all that into consideration?
I think in Sixshot's case it's kind of complicated. Yes, he turns into a space jet, but he also turns into a TANK, which unless it was a rediculous super jet tank can not come anywhere CLOSE as to being near the speed of a jet. The way I see it, alot of his "performance" stats like Speed and firepower are just averages of all the numbers from his various forms, which works out for speed since a slow-ass tank would really bring down the numbers from a speedy space fighter.
Of course, the tech specs were kind of crazy like that, since looking at Pirahnacon's tech specs, he's the only combiner who has a 9 for strength while all the others have solid 10s, but there's no reason to think Pirahnacon isn't worthy of a ten in strength since he can do all the heavy lifting the other combiners could do.
I don't think so. As long as the toy sold, the tech spec didn't need to make sense to kid thought patterns. Hasbro didn't actually care about each individual character, as long as the toy got sold and made them money.
Jack of alt-modes, master of none.
I dont see why you would assume that Sixshots space ship mode was any quicker.
You must remember: Starscream's alt mode just LOOKS like an Earth jet.
If he was perfect 10s, then nobody would be able to beat his ass.
cybertron unicron is a tank with a speed of INFINITY
hasbro's stats are whack
Well, as IDW Sixshot showed, he was already a big threat as a phase sixer so Megatron had a safety override code installed in him or something that would essentially kill Sixshot on the spot to protect Megatron's position.
And in Spotlight: Metroplex, all Metroplex had to do was STEP on the sixchanger to defeat him. And Metroplex's speed is obviously less than Sixshot's rating of 4, so there's more to being able to beat someone than just raw speed.
I'm going with the vaguest answer on my mind: He's a ninja. Get over it.
It's also rare for a G1 Decepticon to have a 10 for courage.
He's a Ninja CONSULTANT. They were never clear as to whether or not this made him a ninja, or just a consultant with extensive experience regarding shinobi.
All ninjas are mammals, as everyone knows, so I lean towards the latter.
Now all I can imagine is:
*Six Shot walking diagonally through a busy office*
"Have you been injured during the normal course of your ninja-ing duties through no fault of your own? Then contact me, Six Shot, the Ninja Consultant. Here at 'Ninjuries Investigated' we'll help you make a claim. No win, no fee."
Actually Ninja COMMANDER. Take that!
That's not what the StarTV dub says, and they said it first.
