    Probably just the same size as the original minisub.

    That thing has $40 of engineering in it, arguably. It's the size of PE's minifigures, but WAY more complex. It's pretty astounding how involved it is.

    That's really cool, preordered.

    That's pretty neat. I'm kinda interested, but the colors are really uninspiring.
    TFSource sure are going forward with their holiday exclusives.

    This figure is remarkably cool. I hope it sells well, but it's not for me since I have the original one that came with Cyclops.

    It is a cool little bonus but in no way worth $40. If the thing wasn't a floppy mess maybe I'd rank it a little higher but considering it barely stays pegged together I wouldn't pay more than $20 for it and since I already have the purple one, I'll pass.

    Hell yes I'm getting this. I'm a huge sucker for MMC's HoS line, and I think I'll be able to afford this when the time comes.

    Well this has put me into a bit of a quandary...I have no real desire for another minisub however I am very interested in the possibilities that stem from this line - "will include some other special bonuses MMC will reveal at a later date!" Maybe that is where the rather high cost is coming from...So many decisions and so little money.

    This. It was an easy pass until I read that. Now I'm tempted. Dammit.

    I'll wait for the other repaints that were hinted at a few months back.

    It's a Shackwave homage. There's only so much you can do with an all gray color scheme. I say thumbs up.

    I'm digging the Shackwave homage, but noticed that he's got a new hand & pistol!

    See, I thought he was an animated longarm homage. Either way, preordered.

    It is Shattered Glass Shockwave, with homage to Longarm and Shackwave.

    I'd probably get this if it came in santa colors.

    Stupid. Sorry for those who like it, just seems like a desperate attempt. Next we'll have the Cyclops in G1 purple or a full black version. I know I know. Gotta maximize profits. Not hating, but just paint it neon yellow and call it bumblebee already.
