    Between the slew of pictures from practically the same angle and that these are mockups/prototypes, it's hard to tell. Was anyone who was there or read it answered on some forum or is there some better picture out there that definitively shows that Shockwave actually has two hands and the gun is interchangable/an accessory?

    The only photo I've seen of a better angle comes from the pics from the gallery that was put up here which shows Shockwave from the side,

    [​IMG]

    There we can clearly see that something swivels out from the forearm, much as the fist does on the other side. However, is this a hand, or is this part of the gun assembly to get into the final and correctly transformed position as seen in the official photos,

    [​IMG]

    So we can see that properly transformed the gun ends up flush, but is this because it's all "one piece" that is manipulated around thanks to the hinge joints and swivels and only looks like a hand in that one picture, or is it a seperate piece that fits into the hand to sit flush and cover the hand, much as FE Prime has his weapons which cover his fists? In other words, is the cannon like (for lack of a better example) Animated Cybertron Megatron or Hero Optimus Prime's or like WFC or Voyager Prime Megatrons?

    The vehicle mode pics don't help, as unless I'm very much mistaken the hands end up on the underside in jet mode, so I can't tell if it's a swivel out or seperate piece.

    It looks blatantly obvious to me that he has 2 hands and a gun accessory that is integrated into his vehicle mode.

    Yeah, my mistake. The hands become the thrusters in vehicle mode, so he's got to have two hands. Or at the very least the gun is a seperate piece.

    Leave the left hand folded in, it'll form a thruster and look like Shockwave has his gun arm. I'm also taking the wings off this guy when I get him, he'll look more like his g1 self in both modes.

    Gotta say I'm quite disappointed. Still chance for a third party to do a perfect MP Shockwave.

    Eh, I still like it. Maybe not enough to pay 3 times retail for it (at least not until the line gets cancelled, anyway), but enough to be on the positive side of things. :)

    This guy is looking better and better! He'll go on my Shockwave shelf next to TFA, Movie, and and KM03 (whenever the preorder is up...).

    Thanks for not reading the thread. :rolleyes: 

    For the record, I want two hands with the gun as an accessory. That's what we're getting, I'm happy. I realized that what I thought was a skinny bar and the peg on the gun was just damage to the prototype.

    He has 2 hands and the gun is made to be hand-held, but I am pretty sure, based on the promo photo, that it is also designed to be integrated with his right arm. Hopefully his left too but it's hard to say so far
