    Just got FoC Shockwave today, and he is pretty sweet. As expected he is small, but at this point, that is crying over spilled milk.

    In either case, with the release of Voyager Soundwave, it makes me wonder if we will ever see Voyager Shockwave. I think he will sell well in that size and many people can then use him with Classics and such. As he currently stands he is too small with classics.

    So whatcha think? You think we will ever see one?

    Well since Shockwave is going to appear in Prime I'm guessing he'll have a Voyager Class in that line instead if not for FOC.

    I'm sure it's a possibility, just like everything else. It wouldn't happen anytime soon though. Hasbro seems to be okay with the trend of downsizing figures and I think I'm fine with it in the long run too.

    wildfly Right notes. Wrong order.

    With Takara apparently shoehorning FOC Shockwave into the Arms Micron line, i suspect otherwise...and that it may be a fairly brief appearance.

    Yeah, I don't mind downsized figures either to be honest.

    The only bummer is that the WFC and FoC don't go together as nicely as I would have liked. But yet again, I could always make believe that BB and CJ were taller then Jazz on Cybertron and that Shockwave was shorter and skinnier then Megatron and Soundwave.

    A voyager sized Shockwave would be perfect though. Maybe in the Prime line as a Voyager size. Same thing they did with Starscream. That would be sweet.

    Wouldn't be surprised if a KO company upsized him a bit.

    Possible but unlikely the voyagers will probably be taken by prime and megatron

    Unless it somehow ends like the FE/RID scenario, (see Starscream), I doubt it happening the next few years.

    I'm going to assume it won't happen.

    Doubt it, but it's a nice thought. Keeping Voyager Grimlock in mind maybe makes it a bit more plausible.

    Voyager Grimlock is the most excited I have been about a Transformer release that is not an MP in a very very very long time.

    That thing is epic looking. I am going to buy at least 2 of them. 1 for my Classics shelf and the other for my WFC/FoC shelf.

    Oh yea definitely buying two. I know he's not going to be colored as nicely as the press shots show him, but i'm hopeful for that too.

    I doubt it but stranger things have happened.

    Unlikely. The FoC deluxe is pretty much perfect as it is, despite the size issues some complain about.
