I'd love a Classics Spinister, and whilst the Botcon version is pretty good, it's not enough. I'd get it if it were retail, but can't see me spending ebay money on it. Kick-Off, on the other hand, is amazing. Best repaint of this mold yet. Noticed it in the line-up of the Longarm gallery, and glad it's getting its own. I could see myself spending the extra to have this one.

Shattered Glass Prime didn't really do it for me in the Voyager mold, which I like much better, so this one is just a waste to me. And Ducktopunch is, like Spinister, nowhere near close enough to the character I'd want to get, looks quite nice though.

Oh CHMS where art thou?

Hasbro would definately be winning with this as a mass release, they couldn't get it wrong (unless they failed to add the blaster on his left arm)!

For all us Shockwave lovers heres one of my fave versions, Alternator Shockwave (Shockblast)!

As much as I want that figure to work, SG Octopunch really needed a remolded head to pull off the character. This just doesn't do it for me.

Actually, looking at the breathing mask, the Sea Spray mold has me wondering. With a few new parts to make the alt mode a starship instead of a hovercraft, could this figure be used for Omega Surpreme? :-?

Not for nothing but this figure sucks as shockwave. And people are charging $1000 for it that's nuts I hope no one is paying that price and it's not so much the body of the figure it's the head and the blaster just looks cheap

That's because those pieces are cheap. They're cast from resin and aren't from hasbro

Hmm, it would be entirely doable to make him G1 Omega's tank chunk, but I don't know if you could pull off a starship...

Unless of course you mean TFA Omega Supreme, in which case Voyager Seapsray is a dead ringer for it. :)

Myself I still don't understand why people want this Shockwave, through Hasbro means of otherwise, I mean, we're getting a perfectly good Shockwave a few months from now, one that looks all Shockwave and not just the head and arm cannon, so why's there still this need for a wider release of this one? :oops:

Shockwave as an rx-8 is kinda gay. If anything (car), he would be an Jaguar xj220 or something killer like that.

I'll answer this because that shockwave is part of the foc game and they want a shockwave based on a classis design even know that the foc one would work because he never had an earth mode

I'm with you there. It looks really nice, and the Jazz toy is a great base for a lot of different characters, but the Shockwave we are getting appears to be a superior representation of the character. I'd rather see Kick-Off get mass released.

How does it being made by ford make it gay? Ford has some insane cars, like the fordGT. I picked the Jag since its signature colour for that car is a very Shockwave looking purple. Large and fast as hell, as well as sort of all but forgotten, sort of in the background, like Shockwave. The Mclaren would have to be for something much more vicious and attention grabbing, like the Fallen, since the car sounds like its from hell.

Lol why so serious the ford gt and maybe the mustang would be the only fords I would buy because the rest are crap. And I do agree with u he shouldn't be an rx-7 not because it's undered powered because it's not 255hp for a 1.3l engine is impressive it's just a girls sports car. And a jaguar is for and older British guy like Austin powers maybe and Austin Martian would have fit better. And a mclaren does not look like its from hell at all those cars a good old fashion real American muscle that scare the crao out of you when the engine roars. A mclaren is a cockpit seater meaning you sit in the center of the car like someing you fly like a jet or spaceship it's fast it's sleek a beast from hell makes noise rips sh#t up fire out the exhaust just a monster like chevell SS or something that would do a wheelie when it took off. Mclaren has precision cuts like a laser and sticks to the road around corners =P~ little to much huh lol

I'm not serious. don't worry.
The xj220 is so not for old guys, come on man, haha. Thing was made to compete with porsches n shiet. Ya, the mclaren is quite precision but it comes off as this demon car coz its just so loud and ruthless, haha. This conversation is so nerdy.
Fair enough though, I could see the fallen as an old Charger or something angry like that. But we all know the fallen should really be a tank and thats it.

Seeing those pics of Shockwave as parts sorted in a styrofoam food tray makes me wish Hasbro had some sort of special offer or something where you could order a disassembled figure like that and put it together yourself.

Like Kre-O but instead of brick figures you put together a real one. I'd find it fun, anyway.

But Hasbro probably would be stopped by their lawyers lest some fool order one for a 3 year old who then promptly chokes to death on the parts.

I'm a lover of Shockwave-iness, so either-or will do me fine. FOC Shockwave is really amazing, and so is this representation, so for me, I could get away with both if I want a Classics Shockwave (and I do want one). DOTM Shockwave, however, just doesn't work as Classics Shockwave.
