    The chances of Shockwave ever being officially reissued are slim, and there is a huge tell with this release (the gun barrel); however, we always thought that about Omega Supreme too. I'd like to see Shockwave's packaging; if I can score one cheap I'd get it just for that. Same with Superion. I also LOVE them using Shockwave having his sticker sheet as a selling point; he's got 3 in total. :lol 
    Encore Metroplex disagrees.

    Sweet haul.
    Are you gonna review any of them? I'd like to see some more pics of Shockwave and an opinion before buying.

    It would be great if you could take at least comparison pics of the originals if you have them. Box pics too, since i havent seen good quality images if the latest bootlegs :)

    Hmmm well at least the KO superion will be easy to spot. An original sealed Superion Giftset doesn't have the autobot symbol on the smaller jets wings. Also the stickersheet was one big sheet not 5 individual sheets. That and the missing rap.

    Was hoping for a nice Shockwave 'repro'-box. But that's okay, I still have the vintage :)

    Nah bro every single KO in the world is either made or indirectly "funded" by Funds Projects.

    Then they outsource it to other Funds Projects type company who will redistribute them & will be copied by more Funds Project type clones.. :p

    well that is what I figured, or made by two twenty-something slightly overweight (yet still vaguely attractive) neckbeards who love the sound of their own voices. and are married but not to each other, although that would be kind of awesome they think.

    I really thought about it, because I have been wanting a G1 Shockwave. But when I read that this one does not come in a box, I said no.
