i gave this set a 8 because shockblast (shockwave) is that cool! i was so thrilled to finally get shockblast, he really is a awsome edition to the joes. i was disapointed however with him not being given a backpack and a machine gun, but overall he is a solid figure and im glad to have him.
destro on the other hand i didnt care for. mabe i am just burned out with all the destros hasbro has given us but i really didnt like this one much. i think he would have been a lot cooler with a different head, and without that scarf around his neck. i didnt care for the feet either with those pointy boots. i liked the blue and red color of him though but he just didnt do anything for me.

I'd have to give the comic pack an 8 only because of Shockblast and the Comic. I wish they would have included Shockblast's backpack and machine gun with suppressor but whatever, the Destro just doesn't do anything for me with the headpiece falling off, and the giraffe neck.

I had Shockwave as a kid and was very excited about the 25th incarnation.
I really am thankful but was a little disapointed with some aspects of Shockwave (now Shockblast). His vest seemed to be made of a harder / cheaper plastic (like Resolute Duke) that does not allow it to close aroung the figure properly on the right. Also the belt is a re-issue, and while dead on for the original, is several times too big for his waist.
These accesories were made of better material for the CP Firefly and fit a bit better. Although, if you line them up side by side with the vintage they appear made for Shockwave.

I keep passing on these two CPs. The Shockblast is cool. (Although I'll never get used to the new name). But DESTRO just bothers me. He is so wrong on so many levels.
One of my faves of all time is Tunnel Rat. However, I'm a pass on this one. His scale is off, his colors don't match and his missing accessories piss me off. His face is so friggn large on his body.
SS is a Meh. I could take him or leave him. No opinion on it.

Set gets a 4.3 avg. from me.
Shockwave:8 (10 easily if a rifle/pack were included)
Destro: 2 (Terrible figures. Kiddy custom job)
Comics: 3 (Horrible read, and art, expected more form Hama)

Destro looks stupid. And there are so many Destro's now its almost a army now.
Shock Blast is a Solid 8. Backpack and a silenced sub-machine gun would have made it a 9. Money is tight so I'm going to pass on this AND Tunnel Rat/SS because I want to like 100% of what I buy now not 40%. I'll be looking for these in single card.

I think the best part of the Shockblast figure is his gas mask. A suppressed AR or MP5 would have been good SWAT gear. Give him a dog and sheild and he turns into Wide Scope ('03).
Destro?? Whats up with the goofy boots. He flying to the moon or something? But overall I guess its cool just to get a different version.

I altered my Shockwave/blast when I got him a bit. I cut and superglued the belt onto his waist so it doesn't look like it's flopping around anymore. I'm thinking of supergluing the vest maybe too. I haven't decided yet.
I'm also thinking of getting and altering a vintage backpack for him much like I'm getting done for Tunnel Rat, Mainframe, and Breaker.
