Default Reissue Sixshot still coming

This was only recently commented on the other day in another section, but it looks like the Reissue of Gen1 Sixshot is still coming in August, according to online store Kapow toys.

Apparently it will have special/expensive packaging, but that might just be the Asian release (as previous JP reissues & Masterpiece have had bonus items with their Asian/HK release). Or maybe there won't be a Japanese release at all, which might be why we haven't seen anything of it in recent JP Hobby magazines.

That's excellent news but now I'm preparing myself for how much he will cost...

Good news for people that don't have him yet. Hopefully he won't be too expensive and they won't skimp out on material quality too much.

I've been waiting for this one for ages, but it's a bit disappointing that it's not going to be an encore figure, I'm sort of dreading what the price tag will be like...

The 2002 reissue was incredible -- I didn't get it, but I once did a side by side comparison w/ someone else's reissue Sixshot and my original G1 Sixshot - virtually identical to the original! The last Sixshot reissue sold for 4980JPY ($61), so I'd expect the upcoming reissue to be around the same price as usually the RRP of reissues don't fluctuate too wildly.

e.g.
+ 2000 Convoy = 4980JPY ($61.08) / Encore Convoy = 5000JPY ($61.33)
+ 2005 Soundblaster = 5500JPY ($67) / Encore Soundblaster = 5250JPY ($64)
+ 2006 Twincast = 5000JPY ($61) / Encore Twincast = 5250JPY ($64) (remember that eHobby Twincast only comes w/ 1 cassette & Encore comes w/ 2)

Does anyone remember the RRP for the 2010 Edition Predaking reissue? Anyway, I'd be expecting Sixshot to be around the $60-70 mark.

I paid about $180 I think. and I'd expect the re-issue sixshot to be at least $100.

The 2004 Predaking reissue retailed for 14000JPY, or $171, so $180 isn't too far off that.

That's a massive hike from the $61 RRP of the previous reissue and I don't think we've ever seen Takara(TOMY) jack up the price of a subsequent reissue like that before. I'd be really disappointingly surprised if the RRP turned out to be so ridiculously expensive.
