    Wasn't asking for a code.

    Aye, that's what I'm thinking.

    I never expected them to actually do this kind of homage and I'm delighted. He'll be a neat contrast against the sea of purple Shockwaves I have on display.

    Looks nice.

    Guess Hasbro can't use the AstroMagnum naming (yet)?

    Regardless, still great name-resurrection for the ol' Shackwave...

    Inaccurate, g1 shackwave had a very disturbing pelvic region, not that I like it, but, inaccuracy is inaccuracy. This is a joke btw im glad they left out that part.

    Why he's not called Astro Magum is beyond me.

    Well, iirc, the "Galactic Man" naming was indeed the actual US name from RS.

    I believe the "Astro Magnum" naming was the original South Korea/Japan naming or something like that.

    Okay. Cool. The Hot Shot seems very probable.

    I'd buy the Rainmakers in a sparkbeat.
    On the fence about this Shockwave.

    Interesting. I must admit I didn't see that coming.

    Should we expect to see other 'Pre-Transformers' repaints for the 'Siege' line in the foreseeable future?

    This "Shackwave" repaint is fun and all, but I could really get behind a Powered Convoy repaint for Mr. Ultra Magnus.

    That would be lovely.
