I had vaguely recalled a quality KO of G1 Shockwave from the same company that had been releasing the other quality KO's, right down to the boxes that had caused a major fan outrage due to the difficulty of telling originals from their new runs. Doing a search, I came across an article about it ( KO Shockwave coming soon? ) from back in January. Was this KO ever released? On a similar note, I had figured that Shockwave would be among the molds unreleasable by Takara due to rights, however with Omega Supreme, Sky Lynx, and what not, has the situation changed for Shockwave in getting an Encore? LOL, yeah, I find myself kind of wanting a nice minty G1 Shockwave, quality KO or encore, it doesn't really matter to me. I'm just not going to pay obscene prices for an original, or discount prices for a broken/questionable quality piece.
