    Get the new metallic Fuuma, you can't get a better Sixshot than that at an "affordable price", unless you want a G1 Sixshot.

    On TFSource, they have DX9 Hanzo shorter than the GCreations Fuuma.

    He is MP scale.

    Fuuma is currently the tallest version of Sixshot.

    He’s “MP scale” but he’s certainly not G1. Very much IDW Six Shot.

    Other than that, enjoy. He’s pretty amazing looking!

    That's fine by me really. I have a ton of slavishly G1 MP and I'm not planning on building entire Japanese continuity shelves, so a little stylization is fine.

    I don't have Hydra, but I know Fuuma is taller.

    Hanzo and Hydra are about the same height, Fuuma is a bit taller than both of them.

    How do they handle shipping parts? I’m assuming they charge for shipping if you need to order a replacement part, but what if your FT figure was defective/had a missing part? Do they still charge to ship it to you?

    I asked them for a replacement tyre for spoiler since one of mine has a cut in it and was politely told to fuck off

    Fuuma is about a head taller than Hydra.

    The FansToys version has a nice size head on its shoulders. Also the ability to hide the chest wings under the chest makes it my prefered version to buy if I could for a reasonal price. Then again, the gap above the feet and the supposed issues with the knees...hopefully those will be reworked some day.

    They don't charge you anything if your part is missing/defective.

    See, this is what I was hoping for too (and why I held off on purchasing Hydra after hearing about the knees). The fact that he was a shelf-warmer for so long though makes me think a reissue with corrected knees (and possible more ankle tilt) isn't going to be anywhere on the near horizon. I really want something that will look good next to my Fanshobby Double Evil but I don't care for the stylized look of Fuuma. That said, paying a late tax for the weak-kneed, no ankle-tilt Hydra also just doesn't seem worth it to me either, even though he's my preferred choice.

    Decisions....
