    That giant blocky shoulder bpthers me more every time I see it, but the rest of Shockwave still looks as great as ever. It looks absolutely gorgeous with those colors, too.

    But as amazing as it is, it has nothing on Starscream! That one is stunning, a marvel of toy engineering! Incredible!

    THIS. Damn it looks nice. Wonder what he'll be worth tho...

    Looks like the eHobby Junkion... but I'd not be surprised if MJ repaints a few specifically for SG Junkions. (Or even makes a bug like face, which would be amusing.)

    I can only imagine... won't be buying him anytime soon. =(

    Can't wait to see some colored version of the HoS seeker, especially in Skywarp colors.

    Good lawd, that Starscream looks amazing! Trying hard to resist picking up the larger (Ultra/Leader?) size version of that guy, along with his bros Skywarp and Thundercracker too. Did they show any other sizes of that sculpt? Voyager? Deluxe? Didn't they tease three different sizes of him?

    So, is Cyclops or Hexatron coming out first?

    The only thing about Cyclops that really bothers me is that his hand is so encumbered with the bow of the ship poking out beyond it. How does he pick up his keys if he drops them?:) 

    EDIT: I guess Cyclops is coming out first since I see no pre-orders up for Hex.

    Plus, Cyclops is supposed to be out next month. These pictures make that VERY believable.

    Gotta imagine its gonna be close to what Optimus was, so I think $90? He looks to be about the same size which is why I think it'll be around the same price.

    I'm skipping all the HoS stuff (gotta draw a line somewhere in collecting), but man, I have to admit, Starscream is tempting. He looks great! If they make a Thundercracker from that I might have to make an exception.

    The Bumper/Hubcap upgrade heads, though, I'm all over when they become available. I've still got two extra Bumblebees sitting in a drawer that I picked a while back in anticipation of those heads.

    What did you think of the paint in person TJ? I pretty much fell in love with the proto grey and haven't really liked the final painted version so far.

    Don't worry, I'm sure they'll do multiple colors just like Knight Morpher.

    Maybe they'll do a grey one to homage Animated? I wouldn't put it past them. It would be pretty cool to see, and they are going to want to get the most out of this mold.

    I'd like to see more pics of that Shockwave from the RTS Jazz mold in the HoS Shockwave pic.

    I think that's the Botcon custom class figure, not a third party figure (but I'm sure it'll get KOed.)

    There are a good number of pics in the News section of it.

    Thats actually a pretty good idea for a repaint. I'm not interested in the character but I can see how well this would work.
