    Looks like they ran out of money. Reusing Prime mold. This is unfortunate. Wonder what happend?? Sad, was really holding out hope for this company.:D

    Very similar feelings to the Nemesis Prime version they did.

    I like it. But I can't see myself spending money on it.

    Was Shockwave as a battleship supposed to have been these guys, or is that something somebody else is working on?

    man, that's really sad if this is true. however it does save me about a hundred bucks. any confirmation that they did run out of money? it seems obvious that there is some sort of cyclops toy there that they made out of the prime mold.

    I wait for the 'real' Cyclops by the way :D  That retool remains a nice joke imo...

    Logically the fact that Venksta spoke so... makes me worry now :D

    I am thinking they are making a joke to announce that the real one will be out soon.

    If it is just a slight re-tool, I will probably pass on it.

    What venksta said paired with a comment mastermind creations left on their facebook today have me quite worried... Ill hold out hope on it being a joke until some sort of confirmation but, holy crap if its not... I will be sincerely let down...

    If they were really having $ probs, they should of just cut bait after km-02 and not gone into production on anything more, imo.. How many of the shockwave ships would I of gotten ? at least one or two. How many of this will would I of gotten ? zero. I even would of gotten another recolor/tool of prime mold, like say ..ultra magnus (if your gonna recolor this mold.. why would you shockwave..) I cant speak for everyone but, yeah.. really hope they keep new stuff coming, was realllly liking MC.

    Seriously? I don't really understand why they would bother making that. I can't imagine too many people are going to want a HoS Shockwave that has nothing to do with HoS Shockwave.

    This pic was posted up on friday - therefore april fool.

    I don't think it's a sensible thing for them to do - they don't want casual observers to look at this and think 'that sucks, I won't get their next figure' and then ignore the proper reveal.

    I hope it is a joke.

    I want them to re-release KMC-01 with the improved arm joints. I'd buy another one if they did.

    I never bought KMC... Is it really a good figure? Some reviews are good, others mention issues...

    I never read HOS, but I do think that Shockwave looks cool...
