    Once we first saw pictures of FoC Shockwave, I have wished it was bigger and bulkier, more menacing.
    So far I haven't been a big fan of any 3rd party upgrade set, except Colossus. But I do think there is potential with this figure.

    Imagine Shockwave being bigger, maybe voyager or tall deluxe, with extra parts to his legs, arms/hands, maybe something to "fill out" his gun arm, maybe even torso, as it would look a little wimpy if everything else gets bigger.

    In alt mode, you use the extra parts to form a handle underneath the ship, making it a laser gun :D 

    Just for reference, from the gallery:

    Does anyone like the idea? Or have better ones?
    I just want to put this out there, in hope that it may inspire someone.

    So basically you want a 3rd party G1 Shockwave...

    I dislike Shockwave and Megatron being guns so I'm extremely happy with his Fall of Cybertron incarnation. Looks G1 enough while being an actual vehicle.

    I really want to see a third party replacement arm for classics rodimus that will better enable the protector armor sets arm articulation. Its one of the parts of him that really bothers me because when you move his arms it can make one shoulder look good but the other looks totally different and its something that just has always bugged me.

    I'm hoping for an upgrade kit for Classics Jetfire, replacing his wrist blasters with something more IDW esque and maybe armoring up the legs.

    I expect we will see a third party kit for FoC Bruticus, but until I have the toy in hand I'm not sure what I'd want.

    Yes. You make it sound like it's a bad thing :D 
    FoC Shockwave looks great, and I'm getting him, I just think he could be even better. And nobody would force anyone to attach a handle/grip, of course.

    I'd be on board with that if I had the Protector armor. Was so disappointed when I saw classics rodimus's arms.


    If we get a FoC Bruticus upgrade I hope it has a completely new Onslaught. A voyager sized one :)

    - Arms for Maketoys green Stumpy for sure and maybe leg extension depending on how I feel about it when I get it.
    - Better head yes a more G1 look for Herc
    - Better leg extension. One that can also increase thickness on his thighs. A more uniform look is preferable.

    That's about it for now.

    Oh maybe cheaper alternatives for Alternator/Binaltech accessories.

    I mostly want actual full toys but if anyone released some Stormbringer armor for Thunderwing, I'd buy that in a heartbeat. More Gears of War weapons sets would be pretty cool too.

    wouldnt it probably just be easier and make a better product to make a shockwave from scratch, say at hegemon height/scale. :)
