    Yes, please.

    You know, if you factor in all the deluxe scaled WFC/FOC figures, they all scale well enough, with the exceptions being the WFC Bumblebee mold, and probably the upcoming FOC Optimus mold.

    I actually like what I see of the alt mode so far, unlike most people. However, in comparison to the game art the figure seems lacking (something with the proportions I think).

    Looks kind of junky and small. Shockwave deserves a bigger and better toy.

    I'm not hugely fond of the thin legs, but it's still my most anticipated figure of the year (so far).

    Nice figure indeed. As close to a classics Shockwave as we're gonna see for now. Now give me the Dinobots so we can recreate Shockwave's Spotlight comic!

    I don't care that he is small, but I do need a Shockwave. So he's a must buy for me until a bigger one comes along or a custom, whatever comes first.

    Why did they have to make these things so small now?????????? Damn you rise in plastic costs. But regardless of that Shockwave here is a beauty.

    wow, nice review but I will not be spending the money on these, at 13-15 or even higher the size of these guys should be bigger. I will happily pass on these and eagerly await Ultra Magnus (not the legion actually the large one) release!!

    Is this guy perfect? Nope, lots of nitpicking little things, goofy alt mode, skinny hollow legs, etc.

    BUT....he is still the best Classics shocky we've seen in a long time and he looks great in that regard. Can't wait to grab him.

    I'm kinda torn on UM - do I rab the FOC Prime repaint which looks great, or go for the PRiD Voyager, which looks very cool but less "classic-y" from what I've seen?

    I feel a poll coming on.....

    I think the only downfall to this figure is the height. Everything else in the photos looks downright SOLID. This will without a doubt be going on my Classics shelf.
