I want the guns and little Shockwave. Wish they would release them separately.

I'm guessing it will be included with the set, make it more than just a repaint. The hands are fitted with special grooves to hold the rifles and knife, I imagine shockwave will have the same molding

It looks like that is the case... You can see some kibble on his back that looks like a handle with the slot to fit over those grooves.

Man, this has me even more excited for these, and glad I missed out on the first release back in the day! (Although hopefully, much like the City Commander re-release, Fansproject will also sell the added accessories separately for those who need them.)

I look forward to seeing this in gun mode.

He looks neat, and I hope we get these in-hand soon.

So, is this a fitting end to the unofficial "Year of Shockwave"? Knight Morpher Cyclops (and mini-Wave), FoC Shockwave, RTS Jazz to Shockwave upgrade kit, FansToys Quakewave, Prime BH Shockwave, and finally FP's little Quake.

All those Shockwaves but still no perfect classics Shockwave. Im really hoping Fanstoys keeps their promise on downsizing Quakewave.

Just added these guys to my PoL thanks to another impulse buy #-o

I've always thought they looked cool and have been tempted to get them for a while, but still think they are to small to be my Neo-Classics Combaticons. Guess they will be a place-holder until something bigger comes along.

got these, with United Bruticus today. Fantastic set that works really well together. Swindle's yellow is much less garish in person, although the stripes on the back still bug me, they're also more subdued in-hand. Blast Off is cool, but I already had Flameblast (the white spaceship) so knew what I was getting. The Swindle mold is one of my favourite TFs I own now I think. Practically perfect. Cheeky wee grin on him as well.

The extra parts almost all work really well with the United bots. The feet/trailer extension for Onslaught is brilliantly colour-matched. The bits that add on the side of that mode, where the hands store, are a little off, but work perfect as the lower part of the Vortex arm, so it's excusable. The new colours for the guns are nice and solid, give any bot any of them and they'll look like they mean business.

The combined form is really something. The more G1 cartoon accurate colour-scheme breaks up the figure a lot from the mostly grey original, so that could be a bad thing for some, but I really like it. Reminds me of the original Scramble City gestalts, with it's hodge-podge of different parts, but they still come together to create an amazing whole. Highly recommend. I got stung extra for customs fees and still feel I got more than my money's worth on this set.

(oh and little Shocky is so cute!)

Got these in my POL waiting. I also have the originals, along with Flameblast, Warcry, Energon Bruticus Maximus, ROTF Bruticus, and the Funpub clear versions of the tank and helicoptor. So I will have a rotating display. There will always be one Bruticus and one team of combaticons. The 2nd set of parts will sometimes be used for an upgraded Energon Bruticus Maximus or Nexus Maximus.
