    It seemed fitting that I post it here what with having grand in my name and all, so here goes:

    Third party company Grand Toys will be releasing an 8" version of what looks like a Not-Shockwave. No information has been given as to what alt mode he will have, but we have been given some information about the accessories, which will be a mini figure called Circuit buster (Circuit breaker?) a Dezastor gun, presumably a 5mm version of his G1 gun mode, and an unnamed 3mm clip system weapon.

    Hopefully it's an updated Classics-style figure and not just the G1 toy with more articulation.

    I'd also be down for a Circuit Breaker figure.

    That's an... unflattering silhouette.

    lol @ the "shockwave for president" stance.

    dodgy silhouette aside, this could be great.

    Sure am tired of 3rd parties I've never head of releasing silhouettes with "COMING 20xx" on it. It tells us nothing. It's one thing when FP does it- they're a known commodity. You can generally rest assured that if they tease something, they genuinely intend to release it in the somewhat near future and it will probably be cool.

    For unknown commodities its 1) cheesy (everyone does it), 2) almost always total bullshit regarding what the figure will look like and the release date, 3) gives us nothing to be excited about. Ooooh, you intend to make a toy of a beloved character. Cool. I intend to be president of the United States.

    When I was in film school, there was always dudes making posters and trailers for ambitious movies they intended to make. Turns out it's because making a poster is a lot easier than making a whole movie. You can guess how many of those films we actually saw by graduation.

    The reason we as consumers have no power in the "buying Transforming toys" relationship is because you dopes get all excited about crap like this. Wake me when there's news. I can make a silhouette.

    Hate to sound like an ass, but unless its coming out sometime early-mid next year, idc. Kinda getting tired of all the project announcements that turn into nothing, in general.

    Sure the paint has no light emitting diodes, but will it have LEAD?
