    So, now that there has been a retail sighting of Animated G1 Recolor Shockwave, I find myself wondering if I'll buy him. I'm pissed because I ripped the hand on my grey one and have not enjoyed him totally because of that.

    So just wondering out there if anyone is looking forward to the new purple one? Or is the grey one ok for you.

    I like the grey one. It's show accurate, and it looks really cool.

    I like the grey version, the purple colour scheme just doesn't look as good on this mold.

    I was hoping to like the mold enough to warrant the purchase of the purple one, but I don't...so really my choice is neither I guess.

    Due to the fact that grey shockwave NEVER FRICKIN' APPEARED IN MY AREA, I will get the purple one.

    The purple because it's shockwave.

    I saw gray Longarm once, didn't get it, and I've never seen it again.

    Not that it matters, once I found out about purple Shockwave, that's the one I'm getting. I know the purple Longarm isn't as "convincing" as the gray one, but I'm more about the Shockwave part then the Longarm part; purple Shockwave FTW!

    At this point, either would satisfy me, but I plan to get both, since both decos look pretty cool, I must admit.

    Originally I was going to get the purple one and use the gray as Longarm, but I go for show accurateness too so I just bought another gray one and that'll be it for me.

    I've also only seen Shockwave/Longarm in stores once. I picked him up a couple weeks ago at Target, he was the only Shockwave there among Voyagers. My first I ordered through HTS after getting impatient.

    I've passed up the gray shockwave a couple of times (both at different stores and then never seen again), so IF I do get a shockwave, it will be the purple one.... still don't know if I really like the mold enough to even buy it.

    Purple doesn't look good for his Longarm mode, so grey for me.
