    I have to agree, have more money than brains. I mean dear god its a childrens toy that will be released at some point for 20 bucks. I cant see waisting $200 on a piece of plastic that I could eventually get it for $20

    Yep, you called it. The few of us who buy these figures early all do it because we're horribly stupid. Thank god you pointed that out, I've finally seen the light!

    Honestly, after the enjoyment I've gotten from your work in the franchise, it would totally be worth it!

    Although I think I'm going to keep him. :)

    you know a thread has run it's course when people start calling eachother '******' arguing over a kid's toy.

    Anyway Shockwave looks nice. It seems D Banks will be the first to get one...
    I hope he takes a good amount of pics this time to go wit his regular video review though.

    Well, if that's the case, lockdown ended this thread five pages ago.

    No offense to Banks, but considering mine was shipped five days ago via EMS and should be getting here any time now, he better not get his first. I promise plenty of pics.

    something about this figure dissappoints me. shockwave was the floppiest gun ever made. but his robot mode had a crazy personality. shockwave also made purple ok, something to do with his arm being a deadly purple ember. i lost my original shockwave to poor storage a few years ago but im not excited about this version.

    Not crazy about this figure. Im just really not diggin the whole Longarm/disguise concept. I would have rather had just a really good shockwave figure that was slightly more G1-ish.

    Awesome. I'm really looking forward to more pictures of this guy. Especially of his alt-modes. As for the whole debate over buying early figures. I personally wouldn't buy anything early for more than what I'll be able to get it at retail. But at the same time, I'm glad that there are some people out there who do get them. Withought them, we wouldn't have these early reviews on the figures. With them, we can make a better educated decision on whether or not to get the figure when it comes out. Honestly, I do think that they are a little crazy, but this world wouldn't be fun withought a little bit of craziness in it.

    She rejected my offer. So apparently Jenny isn't a Loch Ness Monster in disguise.

    And I really wanted some Graham Crunch. :{

    ...Wow.
    Where the hell do you people get off telling other members of these boards that they're stupid because of their buying habits? If one of us wants to spend X amount on a toy to get it early, what the blue f*ck does that have to do with you?
    Keep your flamebait opinions to yourselves in future, children. No-one cares about them.
    And by the way, NemesisBruticus - putting "No offence, but..." before an insult doesn't stop it being an insult. Are we learning yet?
