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):

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).

Just got WFC optimus in the mail today. (Amazon ftw). He's amazing, but his sheer complexity is kind of annoying. Worth it though? I think so.

I went shopping looking for new Transformers Prime from Hasbro, I came home with Voyager Breakdown. Score. They have 12 more so I'm going back on payday. Might get the two Vehicons they had too if they are still on sale.

I found a Sky Shadow at Tuesday Morning! Always happy to get a Harder to find figure for a Discount. I was looking for G2 prime, but all they had were SS, WJ, and Tracks on the shelf.

I bought the Hasbro Optimus Prime when it was released 10, or so, years ago then couldn't afford a lot of the others. Since then, I've gotten all of them but Megatron. I'm bummed that they're releasing FOUR of them this year because that's nearly $500 of figures. That's a bit over the top.
