looks like a cool toy. Classics version of Binaltech/Alternators Shockwave.

Why in the world would they call it Longarm? That makes absolutely no sense. Unless there's some fiction/continuity I'm not aware of where Longarm is a sports car instead of the usual crane? The only Longarm I'm aware of that's NOT a crane is the 2007 Movie version, but even there they made him a tow truck so at least he still had an extending arm (in other words, a LONG ARM) with a hook. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

since he's Shattered Glass, it might be that this Evil Autobot is infiltrating the Heroic Decepticon ranks by impersonating one of their high-ranking officers.

Pretty plain... Like someone mentioned, its probably the Evil Longarm posing as Shockwave to enter the ranks of the Decepticons...

Psssst, Animated Shockwave + Alternator Shockblast + Shattered Glass = this guy :-$

Except we already have a Shattered Glass Shockwave in fiction. He's modeled after Energon Shockblast with colors opposite on the color wheel.

sigh. yes, I already figured that out, just hadn't felt the need to spell it out quite so obliquely for the slow kids at the back trying to chew their GoBots heads off.

Of course, I'd forgotten about that, it kinda makes Longarm's disguise pointless. Unless this is what he looks like pre-disguise? In which case, Shattered Glass is making less and less sense as time goes on. Still, nice colours on a great toy, I wouldn't turn one down. Not gonna be scouring the aftermarket for one mind you, I might be Scottish, but I'm no Scrooge McDuck.

Makes you wonder why they just didn't offer a repaint of Shockblast as SG Shockwave.

Or it is the heroic Decepticon infiltrating the Evil Autobot ranks (Makes more sense that Shockwave is still posing as Longarm, than Longarm as Shockwave).

It's the same basic deal as Animated Cheetor: "How many homages can we fit into one figure?" Ani Cheetor was Beast Wars and TransTech in an Animated figure. This one is just on the surface Animated and Alternators in a Classics figure and that's without even knowing the back story they gave him!

Stuff like this is why I love being a Club member, they come up with the coolest new ideas from the history of Transformers!

Maybe he's a separate autonomaton operated remotely by SG Shockwave.

Finally for once a custom class figure nobody really cares about. Still hoping for CHMS versions of G2 Sideswipe and Minerva since they have both the molds. But Longarm ??? Waste...

According to TFWiki, SG Longarm is captain of the SG Autobot Autotroopers, and is going undercover posing as G1 Shockwave to investigate the conflict between the Classicverse and the Shatteredverse.

Looks pretty slick, I think. Something I can easily live without, but I think it looks really cool.

These script writers must really be smoking some good bud when they do SG storylines...

So Longarm is an evil autobot from the SG universe, who goes undercover as an evil decepticon in the classicsverse. This makes a little more sense as SG shock wave dosn't become a blody car, but maybe classicsverse shockwave dose. And you know what, THERE ARE TO MANY DAMN PARRALELL UNIVERSES. make it stop....

Such a suggestion would insinuate that FunPub can't come up with an original idea.

Just call him classics Full Tilt if you don't like him being SG Longarm. I'm using a CHMS purple Sideswipe with grey arms and legs myself for Full Tilt and this reminds me of it.

Those CHMS Sideswipes and seekers sure helped even the odds for the Decepticons on my classics shelf. Out of the SS kits I made Full Tilt, Fasttrack, G1 Breakdown and homages of the six cars from the Renegade Gobot Puzzler. For the Autobots I made Scamper, Deepcover, Tigertracks or REV, a Roadbuster colored fig I call Roadblaster with the leftover orange parts and some green parts, a grey police car with black arms and legs I call Speedtrap, and an unnamed and unaligned green car with the left over purple parts from Full Tilt. From the Hot Rod kits I made a black can with red parts to be sparkbot Sizzle, a red and white bot to be Sizzle's repaint Hot Spark, and a white and black bot that is Energon Checkpoint.

Looking for a name for the Green and purple Sideswipe guy and I figured out a use for red Sunstreaker, Guardian Gobot, Turbo.

Oh and sorry for the off topic rant but I had brought up the CHMS kits and decided to put that all here.

I'd love to get my hands on a kit like this. I don't care about the class, but it would fun to put the figure together. It would also need to be a new figure, cuz I ain't buyin' and buildin' another of what I already have. lol

Ah, name homages Animated. Many customizers have done their fair share with this but even with the head I'm not much of a fan of it.
