News post: Generations FoC Jazz and Shockwave - Pictorial Reviews - Transformers News - TFW2005
Hasbro's making it real easy for me to spend money elsewhere.
Do. Not. Want.
Bought on sight. The pic review on the front page that shows Shocky is the same size as WFC Soundwave makes me wonder why people are complaining about the size.
they're not bad, they're just not things i would buy
Shockwave looks nice, but why is he in the deluxe class size...
Because Optimus and Megatron are Deluxes?
Hmm ye guess so. I wonder what there scales are like ingame. If it adheres to the G1 scale, I can imagine the scale debate getting attached to this line..."I want a larger sized Optimus, Shockwave" and what-not.
I'm glad i'm not anal about scale that bad.
They look cool and are must haves.
Talk about underwhelming...
actually, the more i look at the shockwave, the more i like it
Shockwave looks cool. That said, Fireflight looks better. I'll be getting Fireflight for sure, passing on Shockwave.
Jazz... I love the blue paint. Everything else about him just seems... unnecessary. We just got pretty much the definitive Jazz figure, in a more iconic alt-mode, perfectly accurate robot mode (with subjectively looks a lot better), with more and better accessories, for a lower price (but same price point) just last year.
It's funny how this entire wave is making me appreciate other figures more. Prime makes me like WfC Prime more, Shockwave makes me like Fireflight more (though in fairness, it's because I'm impressed with Shockwave. I'm just MORE impressed by Fireflight), and Jazz just reminds me of how high-quality RtS Jazz is.
I was hoping that Hasbro's down-scaling was going to be restricted to the Movie and RID TF Prime Lines. It is sad to see them also down-scaling the Generations line as well. I didn't mind the retail price increase, but to increase the price and reduce the size of the toys... this sucks! Well it looks like I'm done with buying Hasbro Transformers.
If they happen to release the new Masterpiece figures here I'll purchase those, but for now I'm done with their Transformers.
