They must have offered a hell of a discount if 3 of these popped up so quickly.

In a perfect alternate universe one of these would have already shown up where I live. D: Seriously what an incredible layout! I like this so much more than their Firestorm model; this looks like Bermuda Blitz-level of awesomeness if not even better!

I wonder if they give all their modern layouts a badass name like that and if they're designed to be cloned.

Looks like one of the Shockwave models is about to go vertical. Specifically at Dragon Valley in Nanjing, China (Green track shown in these images here):

Exciting! I feel like this should have been 5 or 6 cars per train though.

I like the loop connectors. Kinda B&M-esque.

What? You're getting an extended Shockwave in Poland! Not to mention FLY :D


All of the companies are doing big business in Asia, there's a boom going on there.
