    Which Shockwave figure from the animated line is better to get?

    Regular Voyager Shockwave
    or
    Target Exclusive Shockwave with BB

    The only difference that I can tell between them is that the target one is just a purple redeco of the orginal, so I wanted to know which on is liked more.. Thoughts??

    Well if your G1-esque go with the T.E, but if you like the Animated-asthetic go with the Gray Shockwave.

    Hard to say since both are accurate.
    I like the gray version since he spent more time in that colour scheme, and of course it works better for Longarm mode.
    I also heard QC issues with the purple one.

    I like the grey version better. The color works better for both bot modes (as mentioned above).

    While both suffer from the neck issue. I found the gray one to be a better than the purple one. My purple one was loose and wobbly as hell. Where as my gray one was nice and poseable.

    Purple is the only logical choice.

    That he did, going so far as to say he'd shown his true colors. :D

    Grey since he has a very menacing presence with that color scheme.

    Grey just makes his "double-agent" schtick work.

    That's how I have mine too!

    As for the topic: GET BOTH! So you can have it like Torque and I do. Shockwave is awesome, so why not have all of him?

    Seriously though, the Purple version has a bunch of quality control issues like bad paint and loose/broken joints. So if you are going to be playing with it a lot, go for this one. If you are going to pose it, go with the Grey.

    I prefer the grey version but I'm really starting to like the purple version too (maybe because I got it for $5)

    Don't like animated but even I had to get the purple version. Don't care about the Long arm mode so I have mine posed as Shockwave. Purple just looks nice.

    Gray version works for both Shockwave and Longarm modes... I'd figure purple version only works with Shockwave. Longarm looks pretty weird in Decepticon colours.
