EDITOR'S OPINION

Sixshot, whether you know him as a murderous Decepticon or the younger brother of a murderous Decepticon here is his Voice Compare ladies and gentlemen.

In the G1 version he was a good example of a Blood Knight whom would respect any worthy opponent he would have, he was voiced by VA Neil Ross. While it wasn't one of his best handiwork (even in the show) his overall performance did suit this gun-loving six changer.

In Transformers Energon he was the younger brother of Shockblast who wasn't exactly the sanest Decepticon around. However unlike his brother (and his G1 counterpart) his tactics were more based on deception and manipulation and he was voiced by Ocean Group VA Terry Klassen. While this version of Sixshot might make you wonder why wasn't he named Swindle I was pleasantly surprised by Terry Klassen here, his voice and overall performance were indeed fitting.

So overall both are good but I am SLIGHTLY going with Neil Ross a bit more here.

(Note: SixShot appeared in the reviled Hong Kong-made English dub of Transformers Headmasters and this is easily the weakest of the performances here. But to be fair the biggest problems with SixShot in this dub performance was more due to the often questionably lines he had. However to be fair SixShot sounded a bit more generic than anything else in the show and I have heard worse from that dub but still this performance is easily the weakest performance here. Mark Laity's work as Sixshot on Transformers Tataki was a rather pleasant surprise. I actually rather liked Mark's rather gruff voice as it does suit Sixshot rather well and his performance is pretty good in general but its one of the better performances in the game. Oh I admit I'm still going with Neil Ross but Mark Laity is surprisingly close in this regard.)

I personally prefer Stephen Keener. He played Sixshot in his toy commercial.

The overall voice acting in the Tataki game is beyond sub-par (especially for Transformers-related voice acting). Thankfully, Sixshot was its saving grace. Gonna go for Laity here.

A Tataki voice actor actually doing great... Welp, never thought I'd see that day but Mark Laity was awesome!

Never thought I would like a Tataki VA. But Mark Laity's version is actually excellent considering he's from Tataki.

I thought I would hate every voice actor's performance in Tataki. Never have I been so wrong.

How the hell did they get a voice actor that good for Tataki?

@Damolisher Maybe it's like that theory where if you put enough monkeys with typewriters one of them will eventually create a masterpiece?

@TheVengeanceKnight I'm guessing if he showed up in Prime his voice would be "OMG PERFECT" and you'd love it in every way.

Ugh, give me a break...

@Metabad He probably would seeing as how Prime would no doubt expand Sixshot's character more and better than G1 ever did.

@Scooby-Dooby-Doo LIKE ZOINKS SCOOB, IT’S ANOTHER TF: PRIME FANBOY!

RUH ROH RAGGY!

No but in all seriousness I don't have anything against Transformers: Prime, (I've never actually seen it) I'm just sick to death of the mindset of ONLY voting for Prime voices and absolutely hating everything else, this extends to G1 as well.

@Metabad I'm not one of those people, even though I love TFP beyond belief. I can understand the frustration when people only vote for voice actors/actresses from particular series.

But I do believe if Sixshot appeared in the show, they would no doubt give him a solid personality, and a voice actor that blew the personality and role sky high. They do very well at casting people.

@Scooby-Dooby-Doo If it's any consolation, G1 Sixshot got pretty fleshed out in the IDW comics and Headmasters anime. The original cartoon didn't give him much to do not by choice, but because Hasbro stopped funding the series and they only got one three-part episode to work with the 1987 batch of characters.

@NCZ IDW made G1 so much more cooler than it was one television. While it was great there, the artwork and serious tone of the comics were excellent.

@Scooby-Dooby-Doo The G1 cartoon is classic and has an undeniable charm that I can't help but love it for, but the comics (IDW, Marvel, and even some Dreamwave) are just fantastic. I love them so much. The works of Simon Furman are in a league of their own when it comes to TF fiction.

It's like some sort of bizaro world compare where the actors from Headmasters and Tataki are actually pretty good

Mark Laity is actually really good. But why is he talking about magic? Is it because he's a ninja consultant?

@Nightmare Crusher I saw the scene recently, I think he's referring to his multiple forms. But yeah it is a strange way of wording it.

Surprisingly, I'm actually switching my vote to Mark Laity. His voice was the most threatening and (particularly for a Tataki performance) had pretty solid acting.

Neil Ross sounds gruff and badass.

Terry Klassen sounds a little too high pitched for my taste.

I swear the unknown sounds EXACTLY like the Dark Emperor from Space Thunder Kids. So much so that I'm convinced that the guys who voiced Space Thunder Kids voiced Headmasters.
Nightmare Crusher
said at 7:55 PM on Wed Feb 1 2012
@Metabad It's a very strong possibility. Considering the origin of Space Thunder Kids it was probably dubbed by the same Hong Kong butchers who got their hands on Headmasters.
Metabad
said at 9:26 PM on Wed Feb 1 2012
@Nightmare Crusher Yeah, that and I heard they were both dubbed in Hong Kong.

...Is it bad that I actually like his Headmasters voice? Even if he does sound over the top, and does get some things wrong (though I blame the scriptwriter/translator more than the actor). he just sounds really cool and evil to me.
Metabad
said at 9:34 PM on Wed Feb 1 2012
@Metabad...Argh, sorry, just remembered you already mentioned Hong Kong, disregard the first part of my message, Nightmare.
Nightmare Crusher
said at 7:26 PM on Sat Oct 25 2014
@Metabad I've done some looking around and apparently the guy is Simon Broad, a guy who does dub voices Hong Kong kung fu movies. I figured that would interest you.
Metabad
said at 11:23 AM on Sun Oct 26 2014
@Nightmare Crusher Really? Wow, these guys are so obscure that I never thought anyone would be able to find out who they were. It's really cool to finally put a name to the voice, especially with a voice that cool.

Just wondering though, do you have any sources on that? Or do you at least remember how you found that out?
Nightmare Crusher
said at 2:37 PM on Sun Oct 26 2014
@Metabad I can't quite remember. I think there was an interview floating around somewhere and he mentioned doing work for Omni Productions, which is the company that made the Headmasters dub.

My Top 2:

1) Neil Ross
2) Terry Klassen

Sixshot in the Japanese series "The Headmasters" was much better than either of these versions. Too bad the only English version of him is the bad Malaysian dub.
