I wonder why they gave him those ridged Rail Racer fingers, those don't really look that good when you open them.

Image

I know I'm nitpicking but for the price you'd think they'd give him something that's not as "old fashioned". :oops:

I hope they release one in the Shackwave colors.

It would be a cool homage, and look more like the real craft after which he is modeled.

Much like the black and gold version of Prime.

My WALLET hopes they don't. :D

I do not like this design. You would figure if they are making a homage to SHOCKWAVE, it would at least be PURPLE. Easy pass for me. Very happy with the DoTM SHOCKWAVE. He fits in well with my Classics line. Having anything else is simply illogical. :CON:

The arm kibble is ridiculous, but dead on compared to the actual comic design. Fortunate/unfortunate.

Ah, so that's where the photos from the collage on Robot Kingdom came from.

I was wondering when we'd get to see those pics full size. =) Looks slick and I can't wait to save up and nab him when it comes out.

Right arm kibble? No, that's a built-in shield.

I love it! I can't wait to have this monstrosity squaring off against Prime.

I hope they'll make more Autobots soon. Optimus is kind of outnumbered

Oh is it? I never read Hearts of Steel. That makes more sense, however I consider anything that limits articulation or posing like that to be kibble. Fair enough.

This thing is insane. As in, insanely awesome. And uh, kind of insanely priced. Although considering what Takara charges for MPs nowadays, fairly appropriate. Just out of my league, though.

I'm heavily leaning that way too. I liked the first figure. He's only okay though with multiple construction issues. I can not justify buying multiple figures that come from a comic that was so terrible though. Sure they look okay to me but lines are having to be drawn in my collecting. I'm taking a hard look at third party stuff first. These guys are out for me.

It's still 3rd party even though I love my black colored TF collection, I would pass.

Like Flux said, I must draw the line, and this "Shall not pass!"

I too drew a line, however I finally decided to nix the TF: Prime line for this and other 3rd party items.

I can always go back and collect the Prime line during the next Movie craze.

You know what my "line in the sand" is? Generations FOC Bruticus. Sorry Hasbro, but when third-party companies are outclassing you to the degree TFC has with Hercules and FansProject has with their Bruticus limbs that's a problem for me.

Really, you're not going to even try FoC Bruticus?

I know there is 3rd party stuff that is much better than HASBRO's stuff, the price on this particularly is scaring me off.

If this thing happens to get clearanced down to $100 or less, and not for similar reasons as Sonic Ron, I might jump back on board...but for now it's off the table. And without this one, I'll surely be skipping the subsequent releases. Kinda hoping it stays off the table, though. As cool as it looks, these just aren't necessary for my collection.

Hell, I don't know. When I see them on the pegs I may change my mind. One thing I can say for sure though, if I buy them, they will be the only combiner team I have that are displayed as individuals and not combined. I can understand price being an issue for many fans when it comes to the third-party stuff, but just think, if Hasbro/Takara had made the TFC Hercules figures they would have only cost you about $20.00 a pop and there's no reason they couldn't make those. They're rather simplistic figures.

Exactly this. The only reason why the 3rd part stuff is so expensive is because they don't have the means to produce it as easily. I just don't understand the engineering behind hasbro's stuff, some of them seem to have been rushed during the process, just like fall of cybertron bruticus.
