Another 3rd Party Sixshot in the works?

Thanks to HK-TF we have new images of what appears to be another 3rd Party Sixshot figure. Not to be confused with Mastermind Creation's Terminus Hexatron figure. Little is currently known about the figure other than the images bare the name "BY-01". No 3rd Party Group has attached themselves to the project as of yet.

Take a look at the images after the break.

Images for Another 3rd Party Sixshot in the works?

BY-012
Hot Shot.
Looks like one of the 6 in. Titaniums. Unless that prototype gets streamlined, the other Sixshot wins.
barrelks
Not sure how far along they are, but a little too boxy for my taste. The other one seems to capture the classic look more with a nice updated look.
MegaHavok
No competition here...
CZ Hazard
I'm massively biased, but with the MMC version as far along as it is, this seems a bit pointless. Also, wow, the legs are rubbish.
DJCHARTERS
I like it, i dont know theres something about it that i like
Gryph
Wow, those are some really bad legs.
Fort Max
That's really going to struggle.
deathsheadII
hmmmm

Perhaps it's Deluxe size - that might have some merit if you want it to be the same sort of Size as Generations Galvatron/Scourge & Cyclonus.

^This. Anything bigger and they'll lose to Hexatron. Since this one is a hand made prototype it's rough - I'd like to see a preview after more work has been done.
Superquad7
I'd like to get it just because I like Sixshot a lot
guard convoy
does it have a remold into greatshot?

no?

then i don't give a flip about it, my money is going to hexatron's remold

Think there is picture which showing greatshot colour as well if am not wrong.
megatroptimus
Poor molding. Must be a custom or something.
deaculpa
i think it looks okay, but not as detailed as the other sixshot. have they released a price on the first third party SS?
exomega255
looks stupid. The head is a bit too large. It looks real half-assed, and even if it does not MMC's hexatron steps on this both in design, and in release time.
Kaijumaster
so tired of third party companies trying to do something another third party has long since announced. Work on Overlord or Abominus!

Looks like the Animation model from Headmasters, I think it looks pretty cool.
destrongerlupus
He sort of captures the animation character design a bit, IF this comes to fruition, which I kind of doubt, given the competition, I'd probably snag one just for the variety. But I love me some Hexachangers more than most!

Matty
I'm glad I don't like it.
Transbot90210
That thing looks so rough and home made. Are we sure this is a 3rd party item or a one off. For the persons sake I hope one off because this does nto compare to MMC's Sixshot. This will be nothing like the Devi competition, at least there both are good for different reasons.

This. There are so many other characters that are going undone, and everyone is just doing the same d@mn characters.
Necro Prime
From what I'm seeing, It's Hexatron for the win!
optimus124
Hexatron clearly wins this one
Backscatter
My G1 Sixshot has nothing to worry about.
KING KONVOY
I've been waited for a good sixshot update and now we get two!
Transbot90210
We get two updates, I wouldn't go as far as saying they are both good just yet.

I will reserve the bashing on this until we see something beyond a super rough hand made product. Personally I would be surprised if this thing goes past this point.
Notilator
i kind of like it....you know considering this is clearly a very rough prototype. don't get me wrong terminus hexatron looks awesome but this one still looks kind of neat .
BigRC83
The other one is superior.
OMEGAPRIME1983
I'd say this is a rough prototype .. I'm thinking it's got a lot of time before it's close to done. Which is cool for me, I like sixshot, and I'd gladly but this depending on size. In hoping it's the same size as his G1 counterpart.
jono83
This is a no brainer for me
Dolza_Khyron
wow, giant pass, the legs look like they're falling apart ON the prototype
Sonscreen
Could be interesting, need to see the other modes.
Liokaiser
What's up with the leg panels?

From the pics,sure looks slightly smaller than the G1 sixshot

Even if it is not finalized with details and color, its design of proportion and frame have failed. Good luck to them.
DJW107PRIME
Not bad curious to see what unfolds.
blurr69
Already know and trust mmc, not to mention absolutely love their sixshot design, as well as their previous models. Dont really like the way this one looks on top of most likely wouldnt randomly try out a new unestablished company that probably no ones even heard of anyway. If development on this was started after mmcs unveiling... probably shouldnt a done that.
Transbot90210
Why would you have your first announcement be with something so rushed and ugly. There is not one straight line on that thing and no two pieces are a like, even the ones that should be.

Big ass fail and I can see why they are anonymous.
xterry
compare with MMC, which the Pic that I already see, this one just a suck junk.
blurr69
In a couple weeks, when people have forgotten this thread, Im going to take some play-doh and sculpt out an awesome character, post it to some anonymous chinese site/thread, and sit back to watch ppl find it and be like "this thing sucks", "Ill wait to see more", etc.

I like jumping on bandwagons, what can I say.
PrimulArchangel
Wow this site has really gone downhill with the negativity . This is a friggen prototype people of course its not going to look awesome right out of the gate. This looks to be HANDMADE as well. Not everyone has access to prototyping equipment and stuff to make things look great right off the bat.
Whats even funnier is if this was over in the radicons people would be saying " OMG this is awesome!!!!" ..." Very well done, do you plan on making molds from it and selling ?" ect ect ect .. But because its a front paged story of a 3rd party figure people attack it WITHOUT knowing a damn thing about it lol

I like this and cant wait to see the final product.

HOLY BLIND OPTIMISM BATMAN.

If the people did not have access to prototyping equipment they should have waited. You get one chance at a first impression. They failed large. This is not negativity this is the reaction this crap figure gets. Remember we just saw MMC's Sixshot not too long ago and that thing DESTORYS this mess.

It is very much like going on a blind date with a scruffy beard, messy oily hair, dirty clothes and smelling of shit. Sure you can clean up nicely for the second date but guess what? There will be no second date because your first impression was the worst one you could possibly make.

Your radicon arguement is pointless. Most people are being nice on the radicon section. Once something becomes an item to be bought the critiquing changes dramatically. This applies to all things in life not just TFs.

OH and if you may. May you please link me to a thread that has a radicon this rough and crap and has people begging for it to be made for sale? Thank you
exomega255
This is a dangerous thing to say, but I agree on Transbot's general point. I think if its made to sell, it should be held a much higher standard.

MMC prototype came out a lot better, and first impression is HARD TO TAKE AWAY, after its done.

Remember Sonicron? See where that ended up? From start to finish, a piece of crap to most. A few found its charm, but like I said, its an acquired taste.
AnegefalosGR
Bleh.. stop wasting funds on a lost battle and give us 3rd party BLITZWING!!!!!!

It looks to be made from random bits of cardboard, plastic and soap that were cut with a hacksaw. This kind of prototyping may have worked in the past, but today we have far better and more precise ways to do it. A copy of a misshapen turd is still going to be a turd. Look at the joints on his knees for fucks sake - THAT'S careful work? And the wings on his chest - it's not rocket science cutting two plastic parts from a sheet that are the same shape, yet they couldn't even do THAT right.

That said, I hope this is just a custom and not something meant for public consumption.
echotransformer
Obviously a rough mockup. It won't get mindshare from me until I see progress (if any). You never know, at one point this could be a really cool project.

In terms of scale, those appear to be G1 guns painted with Primer.

Another 3rd party to do it so as to give us more option to choose which Sixshot to purchase.
