    I think it's about time we got an awesome, articulated version of everyone's resident ass-kicker/bad-shot/second-to-Megatron: Shockwave. When will we get a decent figure of this guy?

    By the way, who's played the new TF game? How about that Triplechanger Shockwave? Please?

    Think I heard that Hasbro may use the cancelled titanium shockwave mold for a classic shockwave...but no telling if it'll happen.

    Leader Class Movie Shockwave would own so hard.

    No arguments from me. I would love to see a new Shockwave figure. I think it is almost bound to happen at some point in the near future, though. Hasbro knows how much of a fan favorite he is, otherwise they wouldn't have:

    a. made a Robot Heroes version of him
    b. placed him in the game (not sure if this was a Hasbro call, but still)
    c. designed a Titanium figure of him and mentioned him prominently in the Titanium bios

    So I think an updated Shockwave is inevitable, whether it shows up in Classics, as part of the movie/game line, or in the animated show.

    As Big Purple would say, it's only logical. :)

    Classics is returning, and theres talk of an Ultra size class, so I think theres at least a chance of it.

    YES YES YES YES

    That would be my reaction if Hasbro actually did this.

    And it would be so so sweet if he was a Leader Class figure.

    Energon Shockblast make a pretty good stand in. I think it looks more G1 than many of the Classics line.

    I agree, we do need a Shockwave that's decent. He needs to put his damn pants on and stop running around topless.

    Thanks for the mentioning of my bash. It's going along great if anybody's curious. As for a new Shockwave, we're supposedly getting him in the Animated line, and their thinking about maybe using the Titanium mold in the Classics 2.0 line, so we could potentially get 2 different and good versions of him next year.

    I asked Aaron Archer and a few other designers if they would be making a Shockwave based off of the Game character since they've done most of the drones. They said No. :(  I also asked about Gen 1 or Stormbringer versions of Bludgeon and Thunderwing appearing in Classics/Universe. They also said No.

    But they did say they would consider bringing the 4 unproduced Titaniums (WWI BumbleBee, Classics Cosmos, Arcee, & Shockwave) into the Classics line because they are to scale with the other Classics figures. They just need to do tooling and make molds for the figures.

    I can only image the wickedness of a MP Shockwave. It would make a perfect mold and it would be absolutely sick.

    loolk in the hasbro tour gallery for the titanium shockwave proto. As for Classics, I'd be happy as a lark if they did use that mold, but honestly I'd want it upsized a bit, he shouldnt' be looking up to prime or megs.

    I'm guessing you've been out of the loop for a little while, lol.
