    Because any franchise that's become iconic has ignored their more iconic versions in favor of some obscure thing. Kinda like how they don't keep going back to 70's era Batman designs despite how far the movies and comics have taken the character.

    Has ANYONE did a review of this figure since it became available on the pulse site. Has anyone international did a review as well on it. I'm really interested to see what it's like. I have the first shockwave but this shockwave will be in the collection down the road.

    You could set your graphics card to greyscale and watch a review of the regular version :D

    Yeah i know but i was wondering if there's been any QC issues with this mold being used again. So like say floppy legs or arms as well tabs or pegs not snapping right or even together as they are supposed to do.








    Well,.....:)  I have to give ya that 1 but Amazon does my web browsing and other important things.

    I really think we are only getting the "Selects" line of figures thanks to the demise of FunPub and Botcon. Hasbro saw the market for a line of repaints/redecos targeted at adult collectors and blew the doors wide open. The death of Botcon is unfortunate, but from the perspective of those who cared only for the limited edition toys, it might have been a blessing in disguise.

    Agreed. It’s a shame that Botcon is gone but Hasbro is handling exclusive/limited figures really well. Major kudos to them. I never bought Botcon collector’s figure but have rushed out to get some of these store exclusives.
