    That shockwave headcasting looks rough as old bollocks.
    Huge bubble in the mould leaving a big bubble of resin and from what it looks like its been an open mould on the bottom.
    For the sake of everyone buying it I hope the final pieces are better

    That thing leaves a lot to be desired. Just purple and plastic-ey, non-painted-looking gray? Needs more paint apps....or something....it just needs something!

    And what are these customizing classes? I mean, what happens in them? Because this figure looks like it's purple plastic...and not painted...which is what customizers do, right?

    Is it the Shockwave head the one from the Generations Cybertronian Shockwave?

    This is a really cool idea for an exclusive; the dual homage is great. It's too bad I'll probably never own one, but I like seeing creative stuff like this.

    Nice double homage: Animated and Alternators.

    And, to me, is a very good character choice. Something that people likes but not needs to have (unlike Animated Minerva or G2 Sideswipe). Very few people would feel with a hole in their Classics collections without this toy and many will like to have it as an extra.

    Nice Job FunPub!

    Be pretty easy to make your own Auto-trooper - Looks like this deco give CHMS at least 7 reasons to fake this mould now.

    I want a Jazz based Autotrooper now though (in traditional colours).

    Collectors.

    Wah. Wah. Wah. I can't believe they used such an iconic figure (G2 Sideswipe?)
    Wah. Wah. Wah. The backstory is too obscure. (Longarm/Shockblast/Shockwave)
    Wah. Wah. Wah. Why would they use such a great figure that I'll never get (Minerva)
    Wah. Wah. Wah. The class figure is ugly. WTF is wrong with them (Longarm/Shockblast/Shockwave)

    I think they picked the exact right concept. He's a nice figure but not necessary to a collection.

    But truth be told, G2 Sideswipe and Minerva are both nice figures but not necessary to a collection.
