I bought the only Resolute Comic Shockblast/Destro 2-pack at my local Target today and I say I would give it an 8.
Shockblast is great...looks more like a homage to the original version than the one displayed in the comics. The extra masks and holsters to hold his pistols really make him shine, but I do admit the lack of a rifle deters the figure.
Pilot Destro is good for custom fodder and as suggested by at least one person here that a simple head swap can turn him into a specialized COBRA Trooper.

Bought the pack I figured I got enuff parts to make some great customs. I was dissapointed in Destro granted he looks meaner than the other Destros that have passed thru for 2 yrs but HASBRO forgot to add something on him. All the Destro heads plastic painted and chromed all have ears this new one has no ears. Head looks like a silver painted M&M with a pissed off look in his eye. He is an angry peanuthead!

I like the fact that Shockblast's pistols are a dead ringer for the original, but I wish they were bigger. I do not like the fact that his holsters are different from one another. I realize they are kitbashed from other figures.
His head still looks too much like Firefly, where's the baggy balaclava like the original?
Destro is just plain weird. I tried using his parts on other figures, but even then they don't look right, so I'll just shelve him.

Cool review Vaderquest.
Shockwaveblast is good for army building. A team of swat, with different weapons and that's all. Seems a good figure, but it lacks some characteristic feature, for my taste. Personally, i would turn him a cobra ops, or something like that, with a simple head swap.
Destro on the other hand, looks good to me. I agree that maybe other colour could have worked better than the bright red (maybe the dark grey the original has) but i'm not that bothered by it.
What i find...dissapointing, is the damned IG Destro body. Is the original body mold lost? Why this weird thing, that can't be used for anything else? They had to add a scarf to hide that fugly neck... yet the rest looks great, specially the upper legs (and the equipment is good...)
A nice pack, but i would pass (i wouldn't find it anyways :P ).
I must admit i have bought a loose Destro, just for the parts
Btw, what about the comic?

for me this set was sweet. destro was cool, but it reminds me of star Brigade , as for shock wave this is one of the coolest figures, but it was too bad that he didn't come with all is accessories, that's why i gave it a 8 on the scale.

i dig this two pack and i hope they eventually do a Wide Scope with Lamont as well. i'm tempted to just rename Pilot Destro into a modified version of this guy...
Check out my feedback here!

I was SUPER excited for Shockwave. Unfortunately, when I got him I realized he has three failings:
1. His arms are too skinny for his body.
2. He is lacking accessories.
3. His vest is too small for his torso and will not close properly. (I don't know why the reviewer didn't mention this, since it is clear from his pictures).
