From 2013 onward, they should just rename the convention "Shattered Glass-Con".
I would still argue with you on that point. Though this one is looking kinda bad.
I actually like the figure choice ...
If this were a mass-release, or even a regular con-exclusive I would've expected a third-party Shockwave head, which would've made this a must-buy for anyone who owns an Alt. Shockwave, I think.
As-is, the class figures are way too rare for anyone to do that.
But it does make me wonder... would FoC Shockwave's head fit on Jazz?
uhh, I totally did not see that coming!
Alt. Shockblast/ Longarm/ Shockwave homage?
I guess you're right. At least they are using "Classics/Universe/Generations" molds.
Second. Worst. Botcon. Ever.
Shockblast was repainted from Alternators Jazz.
Shockwave was repainted from Universe Jazz.
BUT they can't use the name Shockwave here so they used the name of Animated Shockwave's Autobot alter-ego instead.
If I had a slot in the class I wouldn't have been disappointed, but this is something I could live without. I would still have wanted to go to the class, but this isn't something I'll have envious nerdrage over.
I'm not sure why there's such a mixed reaction to this figure. It's probably one of the better planned figures from this year. The exclusive surprise makes it even better (if you don't wanna be spoiled, skip over the tags).
"We can use either the Jazz head or ... a custom Shockwave head! Bio: he's a SG Autobot secret police. He's an Autotrooper. Leads them actually."
I'm really liking this, but a lot of it is going to be determined by how good the Shockwave head looks. This is one of the few "multi-purpose" Shattered Glass figures they did this year that works for me:
Classics Jazz to Classics Shockwave to homage the Alternators - Nice!
Converts between Shockwave and Longarm (sounds like you might have to head swap, which is a bummer) to homage Animated - Nice!
It's Shattered Glass - Meh.
Looking forward to building one tomorrow! Hopefully he'll be an easy add to my classics shelf.
I'm surprised they would make a new head for a mere custom class toy.
I wonder if the
custom Shockwave head
violates their own "no 3rd party" policy...
They do custom heads every year and are licensed to do so. So, no.
Na. FunPub is licensed so it's no big deal.
I'm excited to build this tomorrow. I like the choice.
Ugh. Why does so much of this year's set suck? I would think this was cool if I hadn't seen a Radicon already do it, and do it a lot better.
I just want more Botcon reveals, dammit.
I know, just a failed attempt to be snarky.
Kudos to those who will enjoy this. I just think the 'con is getting way too SG heavy.
easy pass for this one.
