Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

3rd party answer to BotCon 2012 custom class that turned rts Jazz into SG Longarm or Long Blast in this case.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

That's worth it for the Shockwave gun and the Megatron weapon alone.

I was tempted by the Shockwave gun, but the addition of Megatron seals the deal. I was pretty tempted by Dr. Wu's effort and that's the same price as this, so it's a no brainer for me.

As usual the U.K. take the fall on the shipping costs. It actually costs more on shipping than it does for the product! :???:

Full of win....?

This is cheap enough for enyone to take a pop on. I would spend this strolling through town, on the way to spend more than this on something else!

Its a darn shame that this isnt just a fiver cheaper then I, possibly more Brits, would take the plunge? :-?

I bought the pack with that Jazz and really don't have a use for him... until now. I now have the job of repainting it in purple and adding this kit. I can't wait.

I have a custom SG Longarm leading my SG Autotroopers who I'm certainly going to give the Shockwave cannon. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to go whole hog and replace his head/hand though...

So someone has photoshopped the pic or what?

Edit:
Another thought on this, yes its great if your a clued-up customizer and know your way around a colour palette, but perhaps an easier option for the general screwdriver savvy amongst us could have been to produce the head and hand weapon/laser in a colour which could then create an alternate universe Shockwave or Shattered Glass if you like?

I am sure if one of you proficient Photoshoppers amongst us can turn this purple dude into pure white, white head/laser with the odd spot of colour for headlights n all, youd have yourselves a Shattered Glass classics Shockwave! ;)

Hey maybe even an orange head to go on Asia Wheelie? Just a thought...

All are dead. Nice! They even mimicked the lettering style of that comicbook cover, although they switched the words around slightly.

It's the upgrade kit using the Longblast body. Here's a dismembered BotCon custom (or perhaps just didn't have the head yet):
