    Shockwave is surprisingly great. He’s loaded with articulation: head, shoulders, upper bicep, elbow, waists, thighs, and knees all have movement.

    Seems like pretty sturdy plastic throughout, he has a decent heft to him. Joints are very stiff, even the pinned feet. I've seen the other Authentics in Walgreens and they always looked cheap, but he doesn't. I've had only one issue. The pinned leg flap that covers the upper thigh in alt mode has a stress mark because the pinned joint is so tight. Otherwise, he's aces.

    That's news? I found a few over the weekend.

    Edit: my girlfriend sent me a pic of it on her shelf.
    Found in Hagerstown, MD.

    Does anyone else think that the holes on the windshield look like eyes? I can’t unsee it.

    Yep, those two small holes on the windshield do look like pupils in alt mode like Barricade is in Cars or something.

    Gads I truly wish I could say I have found one, but all I've seen are empty pegs for them.

    LOL! I thought the same thing.
    The figures don’t look bad. My kid would love them.

    I found ratchet at dollar general the other day. I bought it cuz I’m a ratchet nut. It’s the first evergreen type toy I’ve bought. The others don’t really appeal to me much. But after getting him out I find these toys are weird but oddly cute and fun.

    I have a friend that found one and sent him to me, but no hard evidence like a photo or in-store or a receipt. So he remains unconfirmed.

    Barricade's alt mode looks like a cruiser in Cars that's also a tweaker.

    Found a Barricade at a super ghetto Family Dollar today. It wasn't in their system so the cashier just scanned a random candy bar that was on the counter and I only paid $1.03. I need to dig out some old 3mm legion class weapons to see if they fit his fist holes.

    The existence of those holes kinda confuses me. You'd think that something would peg into them, like a weapon, or some other part of the figure during transformation, but neither is the case here.
