    the gun's similarity to megatron's cannon is somewhat annoying to me, but overall I think it is amazing. finally another decent shockwave. Its been too long. I agree with the purple repaint idea though. always better in his traditional color scheme.

    yes, there appears to be a hinge about halfway up the cannon, the end would fold over, cover up the decepticon insignia and reveal longarm's tow cable/crane thing :thumbs2:

    Looking at the photos, I'm still at a loss when it come to figuring out exactly how Longarm's face reveal works...

    I hope you don't just take out his face.

    edit: I wonder if you turn the head around?

    I doubt it. It looks like the entire lower half of his face might rotate up when you lift the antenna. I think what were seen as "eyes" in early pics are actually those two little white knobs you can see at the lower part of Longarm's face just inside the grey chinstrap. If any of the white paint from his face dripped down in there, or the face wasn't rotated all the way up, you'd get a little of it showing in Shockwave mode if my theory's correct.

    People seems to love G1 but forgot one of the most important morale lessons dated back from G1.

    As to quote Starscream, "Time makes everything possible, I can wait!"

    I keep that quote for myself on real life. ;)
