    Normally, a frankly boneheaded move like requiring the big wing pieces to tab into the clear plastic cockpit, risking breakage, would be a dealbreaker for me. However, I've always felt that gun mode was the weakest of all Sixshot modes and have come up with a sixth mode of my own to replace it in every Sixshot figure I've bought. I'll usually transform a Sixshot rendition to gun mode once just to see it, but I can live without doing that this time. I'm still down for Hydra. I'm thinking I'll have a bottle of shock oil ready for some parts when I start transforming, though.

    XTB tied with FT? XTB's better figures are simple creations. But the fact that both companies utilize transparent plastics for "critical" parts does lend credence to ......

    Is anyone else interested in a Greatshot remould? I asked dalianjj if there is a chance of one happening. If there's enough interest, maybe they'll consider it. I don't really follow the Japanese continuity much, but I love Greatshot's design.

    I'm holding out for the eventual All-Metallic version, since that seems to be the road FT is going now.

    Nope only parts of him are. It's the same as what happened with Phoenix. The fact the white on the figure isn't painted and is just a bland white. I'm sure they'll go back and make it a more pearl color like on Phoenix.

    I don't think he will get the "X" metallic treatment....the only reason why the Dinos and Phoenix got the "X" because they are mostly unpainted. I could be wrong tho.

    This has way more metallic paint than Skyfire. The metallic paint on that one's legs look out of place w the rest of the figure.

    Welp, came to see how Hydra turned, to see if it's the Sixshot I want to buy, but I found another typical FansToys thread instead...

    Be careful with this tab when you transforming the leg, or you might damage it.
