    Is the Titans Return Six-shot compatible in scale with WFC series? He looks badass but I've only found this Titans Return version available to buy and it's pretty expensive ($100)

    Yes he would be in scale with WFC but he isn’t worth $100 USD.

    Traditional leader class is not in scale with WFC leader class.

    If you're going to pay that much for Sixshot, might as well get the Takara version then.

    He’s big, far taller than most WFC leaders. He has loose knees, but those can be fixed. Otherwise, he’s pretty awesome, but probably not $100 awesome.

    I adore the figure, but no, it does not scale with the current WFC figures. He shouldn't be much taller than Ultra Magnus, and the TR figure is way too tall to be cartoon accurate now.

    The Takara version is much nicer as far as colors go, but shouldn't run more than $75-ish.

    This will give you a good idea of scale.

    He's portrayed as pretty big in the cartoon, so I think his size works. As for the knees, there was a running change that added stability to the knees. I'm not sure if there's any indication on the package to denote which is which. It's also not evident in the package. I'm not sure when the change took place. The Quickswitch repaint has the old floppy knees. Thankfully, the Greatshot retool has the updated knees.

    He was as big as Magnus, and sometimes the same size as Soundblaster:

    Here he is next to some other big WFC bots. If you are going to spend $100 on one of these, consider Jetfire.

    He might to some be far too big, but as a rule of thumb I like most of my cons to be bigger bots.

    This is why I consider everything as my "generations" collection and just kind of mush it all together anyway. I just rationalize it by thinking: well he has six modes so he's bigger because of all of the extra mass from having so many modes.

    What I would say though is don't get one on eBay. I brought back end of January from someone from a Facebook group for $65 shipped. I would check there or the BST section here on TFW, I've had some good luck there as well. Poke around a little you might be able to find a deal.

    Didn't he change size in head masters to fight a combiner or something? So pretty much any size should be fine really.

    If anything should be an issue, it’s that Hasbro’s Prime Wars focuses on toy accuracy in design but mostly in color and deco, while WFC has been about show accurate robots. But given so many add on sets and sticker sheets focus on looking the latter look more detailed like the toys or the MP releases, that’s a moot point, too.

    Personally I think TR/ Legends Sixshot scaled really well with the current trilogy. Sixshot is portrayed as a badass living weapon, he should be bigger than most of the others. It helps that I only use the horrible cartoon as a VERY loose reference point since it doesn't even adhere to itself scene to scene, much less universally.

    Now all that said, I also don't feel the actual toy is worth $100 on its own. If you can find it for cheaper, I'd say go for it.

    $100? That's one pricey Ninja Consultant! Sixshot is meant to be big, so the TR version should look fine. I agree with the consensus here that $100 is a bit much for the figure, though.

    Thanks everyone, I guess Titans Return will fit for me since I think Sixshot is a badass beast and he should be a big guy with enough mass for all 6 transformations. I also remember him big from the IDW Comics but I might be wrong.
    Problem is the price, I guess I'll have to keep looking or wait for a reissue

    It's a nice figure but no way is that Sixshot worth a $100 price tag.
