Blog #1675: Toy Review: Transformers: Generations: Siege Deluxe Sixgun

Transformers: Generations: Siege Deluxe Sixgun

Sixgun is the second in a series of Weaponizers, deluxe toys who become weapons and armor for other toys, and who are based on the partners of the Titan Class toys. Sixgun was Metroplex’s partner. The logic behind doing these guys now when their larger partners were previously released in other lines makes no sense to me.

Sixgun

Vehicle Mode: Sixgun looks like a jet, but Hasbro’s official press release states he’s a tank. He definitely doesn’t look like a tank. Since he has never had an alternate mode before, I suppose it could go either way, but as a tank he’s crap. If we assume Hasbro screwed up, which is not only plausible, but probable given their track record of screwing things up, then as a jet fighter he’s not bad.

Robot Mode: I like Sixgun’s robot mode a lot. He is very reminiscent of the G1 toy and has a great head sculpt.

Weaponizer Mode: Sixgun can become weapons for any figure with 5mm ports. He is pictured in his instructions in three different configurations with Sideswipe. As I don’t have easy access to my Sideswipe, I’ve used Ironhide. He has the same ports, though Ironhide’s arms seem slightly too long for Sixgun’s giant fist mode.

Overall: Sixgun is pretty cool, but they should have released him in the same series as Metroplex.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
