    Has Shockwave ever been reissued? I've been wanting him but the cost is somewhat pricey on Ebay and I can't find a cheaper reissue, no encore or book style. Has he been reissued and are there known plans to reissue?

    Reissued by Takara in Japan so we can import, like the encore series and the toys in book packaging I meant. I don't have qualms with other sources, if QC is decent.

    Shockwave will never be reissued as the toy mold is owned by some defunct Korean outfit.

    Ah, he wasn't a Diaclone so no reissue?

    He's been knocked off recently though, if you're interested in a substitute. If not, watch out for anything MISB that looks like too good a deal to be true.

    If it's actually a deal I don't mind KOs. Where to find them is the problem I have.

    ioffer.com is the best place right now to get the KO reissues, and right now, the best KO is mirage, it is apparantly a very good figure. there is a review of KO shockwave around here somewhere as well

    Excellent, I am tenting my fingers as I say that. It merely can't be seen. Thanks for the tip.
