G1 Micro Sixshot
GUESS WHOíS BACK! Yep, after two long months of studying, exams and audition preparation, Iím finally ready to get back into Legoformer building. I was originally going to release one creation every day up until Christmas, but at the moment I donít really have enough time to make that many. Oh well: lifeís life. So, most of my creations coming up are G1 Micro Transformers. I also have Springer, Wreck-Gar and Megatron Version 2 ready to upload in the upcoming days. Furthermore, there was a recent poll to determine which combiner Iíd build this month, and Predaking won. Beastformers are easy, so I should be able to complete it pretty quickly. I also plan on remaking G1 Micro Devastatorís arms, because quite frankly, theyíre terrible. Iím also redesigning the head to make it more cartoon-accurate. Other projects coming up include a new series of pixel art from the new game Pokemon Picross (itís so fun), some new LTC Seekers and a Bioformer version of Overlord. So, tonnes to look forward to. I guess Iíd better startÖ
About this creation

Just wanted to thank you guys for getting this on the front page. I'm back with a bang!

This video contains all four of the upcoming G1 Micro Transformers, so even though some of them arenít out yet you can see the video as a Ďsneak peekí of sorts.

Sixshot retains the two main features that he had in Generation 1 (and IDW); the spiked helmet and the chest wings. The wings can fold up like the original, but there are no photos. Only the video has footage of that.


Trying to make him was a really difficult task. Making something barely the size of a minifigure that has six modes and doesnít require partsforming may seem impossible, but in the end I managed to complete the task pretty well.

The gun modeís more of a turret than a gun, but only because nobody can hold him. You canít because heís too tiny, and I canít think of any way to place a peg for combiners to use him. In the end, itís all kind of pointless. It doesnít matter, though.


The transformation mostly follows the way G1 did it. The bottom section is still the wings and the back is still the arms.


The feet do stick out a bit, but itís not a problem from most angles.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jet mode is basically gun mode with the arms and legs folded out. Well, the bottom also folds in, but itís not much of a change.


One of the cool things about this MOC is that the gun barrel also becomes the nose cone of the jet. I personally think its some pretty cool parts usage, even if you donít.


There are even thrusters at the back, which works quite well.

I had to take a few liberties when working on the tank mode. If Iíd made it exactly like the original, the other modes probably wouldíve suffered for it. So, using some Ďartistic licenseí, the tank mode is now an H-tank.


For what it is, it works pretty well. It kinda reminds me of Beast Hunters Shockwave.

The turret section has no rotation, but the barrel does move up and down. Once again, it uses the nose cone from the jet.


Carrier mode, unlike the original, can actually carry stuff. There arenít any radar dishes in the way to block what could potentially transport other Decepticons, or Autobots if heís turned.


A cool design feature here is how the fun barrel tucks away into the cab section, just barely poking out at the top.


The back section still has the thrusters, so he can still go at boost speed. Yes, it was unintentional.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The final mode is the winged wolf, not to be confused with wingwolf mode; the fan mode that went canon and brutally murdered Magnus.


Heís actually got some decent articulation for a guy this size. His legs move outwards, and his back knees bend. His legs move forward and outwards and his paws move torward. He can also rotate his torso.


He can also bend at the back, but itís mainly to angle the legs properly.


And finally, the nose cone returns to become the tail. Perfect placement, I think.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The LDD file, as always, is included. It features an approximation of his original colours, because purple and turquoise arenít exactly common. Well, purpleís a bit better nowadays, and turquoise is in a lot of Friends sets, but you get the point.

That aside, I hope you enjoyed this MOC. Make sure to tune in tomorrow for whatever I decide to throw out there. Not sure what Iíll choose, but whatever it is itíll be one of the listed creations above. As always, happy building! :)
