    Shockwave looks awsome, but not 85 USD awsome

    wow, that's a great shockwave...is the price really 85USD? That's crazy but still oh so tempting.

    You should definitely post the prices!

    (And agreed, not "$85 awesome" at all.)

    Well, if it comes out at $5, it'd be a dream come true.
    Post it... Don't make the mysterious X's exaggerated. If it really is $85, that's quite a shame.

    Edit: It is a shame.

    I've got the KO G1 Devastator giftset and was amazed by the quality. The boxes are really nice as well, so I'm pretty tempted by both.

    But on the other hand we have TakTomy releasing G1 Bruticus, so who knows they might have more combiners in the pipeline..

    Nice. You know, thinking about it, $85 isn't that bad compared to the prices of other less complicated KOs. (Wheeljack was $65 I think?) However, the shipping from overseas would probably be around $20 which makes it very unappealing. Aside from that, where does one find KOs these days? Yahobby doesn't seem to carry them any longer.

    The boxes are the biggest draw for me. They pretty much serve as repro-boxes. There are definitely some differences like "Dinobot Bommander" and other hilarious errors, but at face values it's a nice G1 box replacement :) 

    Some hobby stores in Singapore bring them in on the sly. But the response is lukewarm so quantities are quite limited.

    I'll probably go after Shockwave if I don't have any luck at Botcon.

    Just checked these are both available on ioffer.com at the moment.

    I too got a KO devastator from here and was REALLY impressed with the quality.

    If this superion has die cast pieces I would definitely think about it, I have a couple of vintage silver bolts with ramps.. so a missing ramp isnt that big a deal...
    And have an original shockwave in fantastic condition boxed from when i was a kid in storage
    but again with the KO once the factory finish the box and the quality is confirmed I might pick one of these shockwaves up for display - and for the people saying this is a lot of money for a KO - its practically the same price as an official reissue and if devastator is anything to go by the quality is just as good

    Shockwave is one of those rare G1 transformers that looks exactly like his cartoon counterpart

    Will be interesting to see from those pictures, how well Shockwave 'clicks' together in gun mode as it isnt locked into place in that picture
    My original certainly had a few QC issues when I got it as a kid, remember struggling to get the legs transformed without breaking it when I first got it as there was too much plastic in the way

    Shockwave is tempting. If it is of good quality it may be hard to resist.

    Base mode ramp or GTFO. How hard is it to make a ramp?

    Look at shockwave's head! They couldn't get the mold to snap together (because it's a crappy KO) so the two pieces sit a centimeter apart. What a steaming pile o crap.
