    DOTM Shockwave

    Picture set is also posted to our blog here - http://kapowtoys.blogspot.com/

    Win Win Win! this guy is awesome in person, super chunky design that looks like a cross between a Rocklord, G1 Shockwave and D'Compose from the Inhumanoids.

    Once again he has a nice smooth simplified transformation ( compared to ROTF figures ) his articulation is great wiht thigh swivel, knee, elbow, shoulder and bicep swivel along with neck rotation, downsides are due to his transformation no waist movement and the wrists do not move just like Battle Blade Bumblebee.

    Tank mode is IMHO very nice with the often complained about front wheels looking nice and alien, they are also an integral part of his movement in tank mode as the only other set of wheels are housed in the rear treads.

    I wont say anymore as the pics speak for themselves, your either going to love or hate him based on the actual movie design, toy wise he is superb scoring a super solid 9/10

    Heres hoping for a leader class!

    Will he be wave 1 or wave 2 for the new line? I'm hoping they release two waves at once, like last time.

    No matter how many pictures are posted (love the near catalog quality of yours), I still can't get enough of this figure.

    One articulation question- can he do the stalking 'Are All Dead" pose?

    Sweet!
    Really looking forward to this figure even more now, if that's possible.

    If they could give us a Classics Shockwave that had this guy's size, articulation, and functionality, but without all the shredded-scrap movie aesthetic, I could die happy

    Any chance we could see him with a more widely-released figure? Such as ROTF Bludgeon?

    if you look at the pics you can see the guns extend and flip out of the cannon arm, its done via a grey button at the elbow which can be locked in place so the guns can stay flipped out which is pretty darned cool, best bit of mechtech so far IMHO :)

    Win Win Win? I would say Lose Lose Lose! he is pretty inacurate, his ribs don't look fully intergrated and he is Voyager not Leader that is the worst part, I hate the fact that OPrime is Ultimate, SPrime is Leader and not only that but BB and Hide have Leaders but not a sigle Decepticon.
