This seems like it will be a pretty meh year for Comic Con collectibles. Last year Cobra Comander with the Starscream Sky Striker was pretty cool. Actually I think the Shockwave Hiss tank is OK, the problem for me is it doesn't look like the original HISS tanks looked (contrast this to Starscream actually passing for an old style Sky Striker). I googled the Hasbro stuff, and what raised the bar for the Shockwave Hiss tank is that it comes with Destro, a Cobra B.A.T., a briefcase filled with money, mini Energon cubes, and a mini Soundwave in cassette mode with several cassettes. I don't think any of the transformers (including the tank) actually transform though. I didn't think the Starscream Sky Striker did last year either though.

Yay, a special edition Jar Jar Binks!

Too bad he wasn't frozen in carbonite during Episode I.

That Bruticus does look pretty sweet, though.

The Shockwave tank does not transform, goldeneyez is correct.  It's still cool though, especially the remolded parts to look like Shockwaves gun tip.  I'm all about that Bruticus though!  Those figures are being released to big box stores individually, but with a different color scheme.  The lure of this one is having them all in a huge gift set, and in G1 colors.  Love it!

Love that Jar Jar

Hasblo sucks. They could go the pre-order route that Mattel does (which is INFINITELY better than the raffle system), but they don't. Hence, security is always swarming the Hasblo booth to keep the crowds from forming, while the Mattel booth is usually few minutes wait to buy new items.

loving the look of Bruiticus and death is interesting wonder if it means mattel finaly got the okay to branch out  to vertigo like stactions or statues. that star wars set is worth getting mostly for jar jar  in carbonite
