It's been out for a few months. FP's just a little behind, as usual.

I was referring to the price. If you buy both from TFS, you get a discount ($119 each + free shipping). Haven't seen that on BBTS ($129 each PLUS shipping).
Everybody is crazy....it's only their level of sanity we need worry about.

That, and being an articulation junkie. I may be ignorant of WST figures, but I'm sure they don't have enough articulation for me. They ARE just scaled down G1's, right?
GIMME MORE TOYS!!!

Yea... if there's more than one item to the set... it'd be nice if they sold them separately for those that either don't want to or can't shell another 100 bucks on the whole set...

Same goes for those guns they made on the FP Deluxe Insecticons... Wasn't that interested in the redecos... but the added bits that easily make the Ninja Insecticons a lot more G1-friendly? Yea... wanted.

Now that you mention that, City Commander did do that, where the re-release had the new missiles and the gun, then the people who got CC first could buy JUST the upgrade. So hopefully FP will sell that stuff separately for the people who already have the set
GIMME MORE TOYS!!!

Yeah, I've watched some sales of just the bonus guns from that 3-pac. I'm not sure if I'll ever pull the trigger.

Why are they calling him Quake when there is an actual G1 character with the same name? Usually 3rd party companies don't use actual Hasbro/Takara names.

And why is everything related to Shockwave called Quake? There is an actual G1 character named Quake that transformed into a tank. WTF??? That's like calling everything related to Optimus Prime "Motormaster". It really makes no sense.

Isn't the phrase shock wave associated with an earth quake? Thus quake wave. I guess.

Quake is a common term and therefore can't be exclusively copyrighted, so while Hasbro would nail them if they made a 3rd party Quake toy that looked like Quake and called him Quake, the intellectual property infringement is less glaring by giving that name to not-Shockwave, who was never called 'Quake' by HasTak. By the same token, they could make said 3P Quake toy and call it 'Shockwave'.

Still not legally SAFE by any stretch, but a little less overt poking of the tiger (Basically, if you make it look at ALL like you're making a sanctioned Hasbro product, they WILL come down on you. Stuff like this further identifies this as an unauthorized 3rd party custom)
