    I’d recommend setting up some sort of account just for that, if you’re not getting any results from eBay. Fb sales bypass a lot of the fees that come with eBay, so it’s a better deal for sellers too. And, like I say, I’ve got stuff from fb groups that I doubt I’d have ever found (for a decent price) on eBay.

    Picked this guy up at a tag sale today for around $5 he’s broken around his pelvis and trigger nothing structural but his arms are fine. He stands better than any Shockwave I’ve ever seen :eek:  I forgot to look for the sight piece at the time of purchase so I went back and found it. Like a needle in a haystack of a tarp sprawled on the ground with loose marvel figures everywhere.
    Is this the Shackwave or another version? I can’t seem to find any stamps on it just the stickers.

    Wow, what a find! For the age he's not in that bad shape at all, considering how you found him. Very nice!

    Finding a shockwave in that good of condition is difficult. Especially a shackwave. Finding one that isn't broken at all, now that is the true challenge. $5 sounds like a damn good price for that! lol

    Well, I am fairly certain the optimus is a reissue. So, that might actually be the case.

    Although to be fair the reissues were out in 2002, so still 16 years old :lol

    Well the difference between buying a reissue in 2002, and an original in 1985, is that we were no longer kids in 2002. LOL And, I can tell right away when a g1 optimus isn't a g1 optimus because of the smoke stacks. lol I have a reissue g1 and 2 g2's. And those smoke stacks connect to the arm with a circle thing, on the g2's. lol And those fists are extended.

    So, in other words, we were playing with them in 1985, by the time we got to 2002, we were collecting them. So, the ones we bought in 2002+ were no longer being played with. Thus they do tend to look just like they got taken out of the box.

    Plus, if I wanted a brand new G1 optimus prime to take out of a box, i'd probably just buy a reissue for that too. So, that could literally be true. Just took them out of the box! LOL I mean they may have come out in 2002, but I am sure there are still plenty of them that are still in boxes. Available to be purchased for fairly decent prices.

    Haven't been in this thread for quite some time. Seeing all these G1 figures brings back a load of memories in the '80's while being bombarded with both the animated show and the toys in conjunction. :D 

    @Destructimis Prime: Seen your pics of Shackwave and I'll follow you up with the regular release that I got years ago second hand from TFsource.

    Even though Shocky is worn out due to age, he's another grail acquired on my list of G1 figures.

    Edit: A little more info about G1 Shocky and his roots -- Shockwave (G1)/toys - Transformers Wiki
