Heh. Cool!

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Pretty neat. Hopefully it won't be as difficult to acquire as the Starscream Skystirker.

Too vague to be really worth it in my eyes.

Yeah - unlike Starscream this seems sort of random. "Hey, everyone loved Starscream last year - who can we make this year?.... Uh... Shockwave?"

The gold "eye" at the front is a nice touch, though.

Diggin that Shockwave. Not much for vehicles in general though [lack of space], so my eye was drawn to the Ninja Battle set and the SDCC red Jinx. Although I'll be just as willing to pick up the Sigma Six-ish movie Jinx if they go and make her.

SO OKAY IT'S AVERAGE

Virtually every custom as good as the title suggests!

I'd rather see them use one of the designs from the DD crossovers. (Different HISS model, but one they still use, I think?)

I guess that'd be too bland though

And Shockwave does have that tenuous link to GIJOE thanks to that weird old product catalogue

This is sad. An official Hasbro sanctioned TF/Joe crossover toy and I'm bored with it.

Doesn't fit the character IMO. Starscream made sense; this doesn't.
"Someone once told me that Time is a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I'd rather believe that Time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment -- because they'll never come again."

I'm just impressed that these toys don't look like dull crap like the first movie's. I mean, there are other colors than black, gray, and white! Amazing!

Nah. Me even calling it a 'tenuous link' was tenuous!

I don't understand what the hell is happening here. I assume that was a mistake putting Shockwave on there.

All the armored Star Brigade silhouettes from the 1994 catalog are just blacked out Action Master card art pictures.

I knew I put Star Brigade BAAT, Destro and Heavy Duty with my Actionmasters for a reason!

They should have repainted Ninja Combat Cruiser as Brawn.

I dig Shockwave there but its not really him. That said, the H.I.S.S. Tank design doesn't resemble any Transformer's alternate mode, so if it had to be that particular mold to be repainted, Shockwave is as good a character as any other.
It all began in '84. Kept on rollin' in '85. The pieces were in place in '86, and it came to an end in '87. But now it comes, and here we go. Transformers is here again. Nothing's gonna stop it 'cause it's 1988!
