    Could care less about Sunstorm. Sixshot on the other hand? Thank you! I've been trying to find a decent priced vintage body for a long time now so I'll gladly take a minty new one instead!

    Rumour saying that Sixshot will have 2 version,1 is the Asia Exclusive whereby the packaging is of MPM kind of packaging,wondering whether is true or not? Anyone?

    Don't know if it is the right thread, also don't want to create drama..
    But, was the Encore Artfire just a rumor like United Artfire or is there any proof/more info?

    Pure speculation, i think.

    The official line seems to be 'no listing' rather than a mis-listing.

    Yeah, the Artfire talk was purely people (like me) really hoping that "United Artfire" news was a mistake and we were getting something else. Barring a surprise at this point, the only Artfire we're getting in the near future is the Million Publishing exclusve that was already known.

    I still hope that the news of "United Artfire" to be true as MP Artfire is just too expensive.

    We've seen pre-orders go up for that MP Sunstorm but not a peep about that Encore Sixshot. Shame, I was looking to get a new one.

    Sixshot was not displayed on a Pub. Date for suppliers of TOKYO TOY SHOW 2012.An item released by December, 2012 was displayed on a business day.
    SIXSHOT can expect that there is not the plan to release it before 2012.

    Takara has so much stuff coming out right now, especially with all the Masterpiece crazyiness, I expect that Sixshot is being delayed. When I first heard about this Sixshot months back, they had said sometime in July..clearly thats not happening...then again, its Takara/Tomy, and they don't always stick to dates lol

    Interesting...well at least some news has finally come out about it. If the leather packaging bit is still true that could be unfortunate, to me. Sixshot will be expensive already because of its size, I would've been just fine with a standard G1 box like the '02 reissue and the Encore line. That said, it'll be nice to own one either way. Sixshot's the only toy that's been reissued that I don't own yet.

    I could care less about Sixshot. I would love a Star Saber encore.

    Since it is not part of the Encore line,it will just be similar to the way God Ginrai which was being reissue previously,reissuing those more popular character,great.

    This reissue Sixshot will come in packaging made from Leather and something even stranger, the packaging has chromed parts..............A case of WTF! It's also not a part of the encore line, it's just a straight up reissue like the first reissue of himself. Takara have somehow made a figure, that would have been on most peoples buy list, to being off their list as it has been stated that this guy will be MUCH more expensive due to the 'over the top' packaging.....
