Lean Six Sigma – unique or not?

During my research I obviously came across Lean Six Sigma. What they wrote was that L6S uses TPS (Toyota Production System) and its techniques (TPM, JIT, SMED) to ensure smooth process flow.

What came to my mind was that Graeme told that Six Sigma is not a new concept but just a compilation of commonly known and used tools, techniques etc. So how does his statement relates to Lean 6S then? It's the same situation! L6S uses TPS which had been known way before 6S (and L6S as well). So this time again, L6S lacks originality :P
It's a combination of American 6S (who collected all tools together) with Japanese culture (JIT,SMED,TPM). Who's next?
