    Ok everyone, I know we all want to see a DOTM leader class Shockwave so lets do something about it. I have personally emailed Hasbro telling them how many transformer discussion boards bring up this topic and how much everyone wants to see a leader class Shockwave.

    Lets all pull together in an effort to make this happen. I ask all of you to do as I have done and send an email to Hasbro about making a leader class Shockwave. Maybe if they get enough emails about it they will do it. It never hurts to try right? So who is with me?

    Sorry, but after seeing the movie again and getting an even better idea of how big Shockwave is, I've decided I want a Supreme class instead. :)

    There are more leaders planned for the movie and it mar or may not include Shockwave. The collectors represent a small percentage of the customer base for transformers so the threads on forums such as TFW does not mean that he will sell well. It only means he will sell to the collectors.

    If this actually works, then I say we go for Blackout too.

    You do realise that if there is not already a Leader Shockwave in the works and they decide to because of a letter campaign it will take 1-2 years for it to get to store shelves.

    The main problem is that Shocky doesn't really have an earth mode. Kids don't want to play with a mis-mash of parts "resembling" a vehicle. They want an actual vehicle. That is why I don't think Hasbro will really go for it.

    i think we have a better shot of getting a ultimate shockwave similr to ultimate prime that interacts with the driller.

    that said patients all will be revealed this weekend (atleast i hope so)

    this, I don't think movie Shockwave deserves a bigger figure, I mean... first: he did almost nothing, second: he does NOT have an alt mode (at least of what I saw...) and having an invented alt mode just for the toy (y'know, tank thing voyager) for a Leader Class... mmm just no

    I really do not understand why they did a Leader Ironhide and BB. It really should have been Megatron & Shockwave!

    I dont care...Ill beat that horse some more...:deadhorse: :horse: 
    I WANT a big leader class chopper. Blackout, then repaint it for grindor. Ill buy both

    I kinda agree here. Seeing that noone seen shockwave transform, There may be a misinterpretation that shock wave transforms into the driller, or he does not transform. if thats the case, does Hasbro have an "open" to make shockwave TF into something completly different than the voyager?!?

    I hate to say it, but the movie RUINED the feelings I had for shockwave before I seen it. I used to sit in a fetal position in the corner wearing nothing but Transformers underoos, with a pen light making his eye light up...and gently petting his dog ears, whispering to him "my precious...I cant wait to see you whip some ass in the movie..OOooohh my precious...it will be GREAT.."

    Now...it sits on my shelf untouched....I could give a wet fart less if they make a leader now. Id rather have a leader sideways, Crankcase...shit..I can think of 20 more id rather have than a leader shockwave after the movie..

    "we will get a leader class Blackout" == "the South shall rise again" == "Elvis lives" == "Oprah will keep the weight off"

    how does shockwave in the movie deserve a leader class? He barely did anything. He did more than fodder, but less than Soundwave, Megatron, Sentinel, and even starscream. Starscream already have a redeemable leader. Sentinel does as well. Soundwave may get a HA, so Megatron should take the spot first.

    Hasbro staff do look at message boards.

    But Shockwave did even less than the Fallen.

    Also an online petition now wouldn't do anything.

    Like, Hasbro plans toys and designs years before they're released and manufactured. If they haven't planned a Leader Shockwave now then chances are you will never see one.

    meh. Megatron was almost as much a side act as Shockwave. After all the Megatrons we've gotten I'd rather have that big dump truck guy in a leader class (think about it...It would actually be cool). EDIT: I mean the trash truck towards the end of the movie.

    Sorry, I'll have to say no to this idea. Cybertronian modes are, for the most part, a waste of plastic in the movie toylines.
