I emailed Mastermind Creations about the possibility of a re-issue of their Knight Morpher Commander figure, including all the mould updates present in Knight Morpher Annihilator. While I was about it, I thought I'd ask the following additional question:
"is "Cyclops" actually Hearts of Steel Shockwave?"
Here is their reply:
"Hi Mattersmasher, we might do an upgrade for KMC later when we have back-orders from our resellers.
Shockwave is Cyclops for sure. He is in our plan, you can probably see his prototype in mid of 2011.
So it's confirmed Not-Harts of Steel Not-Shockwave is Mastermind Creation's next figure and we'll get our first look at it in mid 2011.
For all those wondering what HOS Shockwave looks like:

That rendition of Shockwave is probably one of my favorite all-time renditions of any major character save perhaps the Blackbird-Jetfire. Either way...will buy, and probably will buy any repaint despite my hate for all things repainted...

Applaud the design though.
I'm looking forward to the actual figure images. In my opinion with this steampunk concept line it should be very heavy on paint apps to look spectacular. Which won't happen. I like to customize figures at times with paint but i'm not talented enough or patient enough to make this figure as dark and detailed as it should be.
I see lots of matt finishes with metallic rivets and ageing which equates to lots of work!

I bet we will see probably Starscream before that with a release this fall. This is just my speculation. They also didn't confirm him as the next one, they just said he is in their plans. With the success of KMC and Annihilator, they will probably be cranking these out sooner. Although any design from HOS is gold. I just hope it's not Bumblebee because we don't need another train so soon. I could see BB being the third or fourth release.
This does look cool and i agree another train wouldnt be a good idea maybe some other industrial revolution vehicles would be better like megatrons field cannon mode, the insecti-train maybe if they a train do a ratchet-ironhide rail car 2 pack

I think I'll only get the HoS figs that were actually characters in the series.
