    SG Shockwave with speakers?

    Logic dictates that one must DROP THAT BASS!

    Logic dictates that "LOL" is the only proper response.

    They really are putting stronger figures as their custom offering aren't they? I understand the reasoning but I hope it doesn't make people feel too left out. This is very nifty indeed (wonder if they plan to use that Shockwave head elsewhere), but this is starting to feel like a hyper-exclusive rather than an actual customizing class.

    I probably wouldn't even bring it up, except I really dug that G2 Sideswipe from 2010. :lol

    I'm in the class tomorrow, and yeah, I'll probably want to sell mine. :-/ I have a friend that just missed out on making the class, so I reckon he'll get first dibs, though.

    I kind of want this (Classics completist...), but I know it won't be worth the prices people will be charging to me...

    The real question, in my mind, is: Is he molded in purple? And is the custom head a MOLDED head, or just a custom Shawn made?

    I'm actually curious to see if the gun-hand and alternate head get copied for Shapeways or something.

    I didn't think there was a gun hand - just the jazz gun painted to look like shockwave

    I really wish they'd reuse that Jazz mold as a mass-market release.

    I mean he's gotten now, what, three redecoes, all extremely exclusive? And even the original wasn't exactly easy to find (assuming you don't have access to a Ross/etc.).

    Ah well. Maybe eventually.
