    So full of suck, and a complete wobbly mess. And people still complain about Energon combiners, go figure.

    On the combined mode, yeah, it's not great. Bombshock himself however is a solid figure and pretty fun. Same with all of the scout figures. The main figures are fun, the add-ons are passable.

    Bombshock looks ok, but I'm not liking the limbs. I'll probably pass on this line and pick up the Bruticus add-on set instead.

    Yeah, Even at a higher price, the Bruticus add-on set blows this guy out of the water.

    The only limb I have a problem with is the missile truck.
    I don't like how it's constantly bent.

    Nope, Hasbro has confirmed that they are their own universe.

    Bombshock looks decent enough, but I do have to admit that the "combined" mode does seem a little too much like E. Prime's combined mode with his drones.

    Although I also do agree that this line has promise. I really hope the Rallybots and Destructicons are better, since they look much cooler.

    I see the combiner teams as more of a single main robot with power-up armour in the form of drones. That said, this doesn't seem to be the greatest, but I always did prefer the component parts over the combined form.

    I agree with Split.

    The only problem so far I have with this guy is the loose left hand. Other than that, he's looking pretty cool.

    He has connections that I think can get him toys from the production line before they are shipped out to retail.
