Don't buy your kids this figure. There's a bunch of other, kid friendlier versions of Shatter you could get that are probably way better than SS-40.
Even for a collector I can't recommend it. Parts fly off (though they did improve the front quarter panels on Amazon's stock, far as I know), she has next to no articulation (the enclosed picture is about the only pose you can get her into), the transformation is okay at best, and she's not even close to being screen accurate. The car mode is the only thing going for her.
I admit that I personally find myself having some sort of odd attachment to the figure. It is nicely painted, and the car mode is cool, but this is still a deeply, deeply flawed figure. Only get this figure if it's on sale or you keep your expectations extremely low.
