Why in the world would they call it Longarm? That makes absolutely no sense. Unless there's some fiction/continuity I'm not aware of where Longarm is a sports car instead of the usual crane? The only Longarm I'm aware of that's NOT a crane is the 2007 Movie version, but even there they made him a tow truck so at least he still had an extending arm (in other words, a LONG ARM) with a hook. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

since he's Shattered Glass, it might be that this Evil Autobot is infiltrating the Heroic Decepticon ranks by impersonating one of their high-ranking officers.

Truth be told, I'm not too sure how to feel about this. We Will just have to wait and see I guess.
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

Pretty plain... Like someone mentioned, its probably the Evil Longarm posing as Shockwave to enter the ranks of the Decepticons...

Psssst, Animated Shockwave + Alternator Shockblast + Shattered Glass = this guy :-$

Except we already have a Shattered Glass Shockwave in fiction. He's modeled after Energon Shockblast with colors opposite on the color wheel.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

sigh. yes, I already figured that out, just hadn't felt the need to spell it out quite so obliquely for the slow kids at the back trying to chew their GoBots heads off.

Of course, I'd forgotten about that, it kinda makes Longarm's disguise pointless. Unless this is what he looks like pre-disguise? In which case, Shattered Glass is making less and less sense as time goes on. Still, nice colours on a great toy, I wouldn't turn one down. Not gonna be scouring the aftermarket for one mind you, I might be Scottish, but I'm no Scrooge McDuck.

Makes you wonder why they just didn't offer a repaint of Shockblast as SG Shockwave.

Or it is the heroic Decepticon infiltrating the Evil Autobot ranks (Makes more sense that Shockwave is still posing as Longarm, than Longarm as Shockwave).

It's the same basic deal as Animated Cheetor: "How many homages can we fit into one figure?" Ani Cheetor was Beast Wars and TransTech in an Animated figure. This one is just on the surface Animated and Alternators in a Classics figure and that's without even knowing the back story they gave him!

Finally for once a custom class figure nobody really cares about. Still hoping for CHMS versions of G2 Sideswipe and Minerva since they have both the molds. But Longarm ??? Waste...
