It's odd that after all of these years I still have yet to find a version that completly outshines the original. In 1985 G1 Shockwave was large and had several points of articulation for that era on top of being electronic. Later versions are technically superior in some ways but they just can't quite measure up to the G1 version. The Energon and Alternators Shockblast were okay, I think The Energon version was closer to the G1 version imo but he wasn't quite there. The recent pics of the FOC figures looks nice but I do wish he was a larger size class. Then again most of the FOC figures are not on the large side (regrettably) so that argument may be moot. Opinions?
