    I just saw an image of Blastwave from the cartoon. Looks NOTHING like the toy.

    I like the head they gave him in the cartoon so he's not obviously a Bludgen repaint but the body just looks a direct repaint of Megatronus Prime/The Fallen. I kinda preferred the toy design being a remold of the figure rather than a repaint with a new head sculpt.

    No pictures of the vehicle mode in the cartoon but given he has the original arm design rather than the new cannons that fold onto his back I'm guessing the vehicle mode is going to look exactly like Megatronus instead of having that double barrow cannon... though on the bright side at least he won't have obvious robot mode hands in the back of the turret like the toy does.

    Good to see the old tradition of "NOT SHOW ACCURATE" lives on. ;P

    I'm gonna hazard a guess that Blastwave's toy is meant to be his Earth body. (whether he returns or not)


    It's not like Earth makes realistic traditional tanks anymore.

    Seeing him kinda makes me think he might have some history with Bludgeon in the future.

    EDIT: I kinda wish they just repainted Megatronus and plopped on the new head in my opinion.

    from what we have been told bludgeon will be a toy only character, hence why the character model wasnt changed at all for blastwave from megatronus, save for the head

    Seriously.. also, I'm kinda sad that we never got a Saberhorn or a Glowstrike figure.

    Admittedly I haven't followed the toyline too much, the only figures I've picked up have been storm shot (went to my generations collection), paralon (went to updated bw collection), blastwave (went to generations collection, given hasbro nightbeat titanmaster), tav windblade (for generations collection), tav roadblock (mostly for his targetmaster) and warrior blurr (given cw mirages head). Admittedly there have been a few really cool figures in the line and I've enjoyed the show so far

    I honestly commend them for that minor detail. Sure, it's convenient as hell that they just happen to have basically the same alt modes in shape and design, but it's more than Prime gave us and considering CGI costs it's nice. (granted the CGI in RID is also super simplistic so it's not hard to modify models)
