AMW-01, 02, 03, 04 and 06 arrived today. :)
(I skipped 05 on purpose, but might get him now, seeing how nice the others are)
Have only built AMW-04 and 06 so far, but they're both pretty awesome. ChainsawCat is great, if a little tight putting the back legs together. Also, Helicat mode can mess with the stickers. GreenGunGuy (aka ThreeG) is much easier, with less parts, but still more than they probably needed to put in. Nice little robot mode, and an awesome triple-barrelled blaster for my Gen Thunderwing to open up a can of Big Shutdown on people.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

snagged the last shockwave at the Newington/Portsmouth New Hampshire toys r us tonight. Has anyone noticed that due to the way his weapon slots into his vehicle mode, Shockwave can be wielded by some voyager class figures? (I have him slotted in the arm mechtech socket on Night Ops Voyager Ratchet right now)

My FoC Shockwave finally came today, had to order online and had to pay over the odds for him due to no major toy stores or supermarkets stocking any FoC figures in the UK! Anyhow glad I go him great figure, great transformation however just a little too small. :CON:

Not always Hasbro's doing to be honest, saw a bunch of FoC Primes and Jazz on E-Bay going for about £15, yet Shocky started at over £23. The fact is sellers knew serious fans would be all over Shocky therfore up the price.

The problem is Shockwave is not just high demand, but shortpacked, so online sellers seem to think it's okay to charge us more for him knowing that scalpers will suck the retail off the shelf and force many of us to turn to them for supply. Frankly, I find it insulting to us as their customers.

But lets be honest, online stores are still a business, and we can't expect them not to act in their own interest when providing a service. When it comes down to it if I have to order something online I'd rather do it from the business than from the scalpers.

Im going to pass on OP as I have the previous FOC OP (along with BB, CJ, Megatron and Shockwave) but will probably end of getting Jazz.

TRU has 1 Shockwave, 4 or 5 Jazz, and like 12 OP so I will get them at my leisure. It sucks that even Target has jacked up there prices to TRU levels.


Picked up Shockwave today. Got him for $12.99 @ TRU, due to a pricing error on the peg.
The regular price would've been nearly $18 for a deluxe class.

And the prices on ebay are crazy. When he first came out, it was going for nearly $80 or more. For a "short packed" figure.Now the prices have dropped to the $20-30 range.

I saw 2 Shockwaves today, along with 4 Optimus' and 4 Jazz's at TRU I bought mine at (Pembroke Pines, FL)


Not even close here in Florida, but still.
The prices at Target are $14.99 for the same figures. Which only had a few OP's and 1 Jazz.

Here's mine: watermark is from my dA account.

It looks like the new case revision helped one of my favorite online retailers offer Shocky for a cheaper price (and the first time they offer him as a single figure):

Also, check out HTS (while it's still up):
http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/transforme ... 6&ID=30341

And... you're welcome. I can wait a month until the revision case is released.

I too have bought figures from BBTS, but they do charge a bit more for shipping. I don't mind it so much, but sometimes the shipping is too much, especially on ebay.

I've seen people charge up to $30 U.S. for shipping a single figure that should not cost more than $6 to $8, depending on what method to ship is used.

I'm tempted to import the Prime shockwave when its released so I can have the arms micron and a second figure to tinker with/paint. My only complaint about shockwave so far is the lack of support behind his hands when they're out makes any weapon he's holding swing back and forth too easily.

My latest order came in. FoC Shockwave is tasty if small, he's at least got the sort of elegance that I expect from the big-brain robots. FoC Jazz is neat, but something about his legs feels cheap. FoC Optimus Prime is...disappointing, I guess. Cool figure, but SO dinky.

But with those, I FINALLY got my hands on a Henkei Jazz. SO glad I shelled out for this one after missing out on the RTS version. He's already making the rest of my collection look bad.

Just got Universe Silverstreak today, which means I just need Ironhide and Ratchet to complete my G1 Classyverse Deluxes. Skipped out on the Voyagers (though Inferno and Hardhead look good).
