To be fair, I think the artist has matched his own standards on Micromasters. And "Well, his joints move differently so it's OK for him to look like a twonk" seemsa bit of a weak excuse really.


Oh, and penis, lol!

Now, I know the head on the box art looks a little too big, but the old "peanut on large cardboard box" gambit wasn't the way to go.

The arms still look mad. They're freaking me out a bit, actually.

It's not quiet as freaky as the same artists Fort Max in Micromasters...

Well, it's a perfectly rational explanation for the whole "well a human can't pose like that, therefore it's impossible for Teh Giant Killer Death Robot to do so" thing.

Sixshot doesn't have ball-socket hips.

I really don't see a problem with the arms. With the possible exception of his right chest/wingthing maybe technically sharing four-dimensional speace with his forearm...

That's the bit that's really bothering me, TBH - the right arm... whre is it from the elbow up? For the wrist to be behind the wing, his arm would have to be bent double - not impossible, I mean I can do it and I'm dead inside. But I can't make the top bit go invisible

Ahhh, this reminds me of that ace thread at Transfans when the G1 Vol. 2 covers first came out, and everyone totted up something like 50 violations of the laws of physics on the things...

Hmmm. :\

It's decent- but personally, I like the one Blitz did better.

Now that's how I'd imagine Sixshot!

Still a weak excuse considering Transformers allmost allways move their bodies in exactly the same way humans do anyway. In fact just about the only times they don't is usually when one of the weaker artists is drawing which doesn't make me think it's some valliant attempt to portray convincing alien machines...
