    Very nice. Looking forward to picking him up when he hits retail.

    Also looking for the inevitable Punch/Counterpunch customs. Hell, Hasbro might do it themselves.

    It takes skill and talent to give a design with no mouth a big chin. Skill, talent, and dedication.

    Interesting idea...

    Main obstacle would be changing the face, but I think you could probably go with a visored look for one of the modes (and use that visor as a brow in his other identity).

    Wow!

    He mistransformed Longarm though, the shoulders flip down like on the back of the box. Shockwave has em up, Longarm down.

    Sigh. Another transformer to spend my money on. I might as well put myself up for prostitution.

    Ehh, I was hyped for this figure but I must say I'm mildly disappointed so far. Both bot modes in those pics seem rather bland, especially the first one.

    Holy Face Changes Batman! looks like the itty bitty green/blue eyes dont go anywhere yet the white nose/mouth/cheek area does.

    So when I staked my membership registration on panel shifting covering the eyes when going from Long Arm to Shockwave...you knew that was BS right?:drunk 

    Peaugh, QUICK get your figure, review him and divert all attention away from what appears to be my resignation:dunce

    shockwave is :bay  though, but he looks slightly mistransformed :noob

    Let's not shall we.

    Not a huge fan of him I must say, doesn't really look like much if you ask me.

    not interested in the auction. But to discuss the toy. I'm noticeing in this pick the crane arm/ tank cannon. becomes a fusion cannon for shockwave.

    In the same vein of ani. megatrons fusion cannon down to the vent detail.

    I also see what they meant by having a armada megatron aesthetic, tower arms syndrome. (which by the way if your classics octane has t.a.s. its mistransformed put the wheels to face you and the towers come down easy.)

    needless to continue saying, but its a must have figure. a con with four modes. besides if you don't buy it.. well there are'nt a lot of options on building the animated cons up against the autobots numbers pending deluxe wave 4 and 5.

    Shockwave looks more awesome the more I see him. They eye almost looks like it'll glow. He's not perfect, but he's definetly buyable. Can't wait to see the first review of this guy (pictures not video). I'm thinking about buying at least two of him, so I can have one displayed as Shockwave with the other Decepticons, and one displayed as Longarm Prime with the Autobots.

    Yeah, exactly. I would bet every penny that I have that Jenny doesn't even have it in hand. They might because the pictures are new, but that doesn't mean someone else who has it from the same way that Jenny gets theirs, couldn't have given them the pictures.

    Pretty sure people are free to do what they want on eBay, a different site. And besides that fact, Jenny is a giant bag of feminine hygiene products (DOUCHE) and deserves it. They have ridiculous BINs for things they think people will pay, they shill bid, and they frequently put things up that they don't have. Oh, and they send people the wrong figures. So, all people bombarding them with $1 offers would do is probably make them use a BUILT IN feature of a BIN/Best Offer auction, and that's put in a low price for automatic rejection.

    Edit: http://cgi.ebay.com/Transformers-an...yZ155343QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Hey guyz, watch me shill bid you to the price I want you to pay!

    If I could afford 300 dollar Transformers I'd much rather dip into the G1 pool than toys I can get for cheapo retail prices a short time later :sly2:

    Plus it would make more sense, since both bot modes have their own alt modes, unlike the original P/CP. Never understood how no one in the Decepticon ranks said, "Hey, that Fiero looks just like that Autobot Punch...oh, nevermind, it's just Counterpunch...."

    Maybe it had something to do with recycling protoforms, or something.
