    Hey all,

    After seeing pics of Generations Perceptor a thought came to me a few
    minutes ago of how he reminds me of Energon Shockblast,especially the
    "M" on his chest,do you think we could see a repaint/remold of him since he
    has that same M on his chest.I sure hope so.Later all.

    Well, I can see the M on Shockblast's chest, but not so much on Perceptor's, tbh. Also, since we're already going to be getting it repainted as Relfector, I think the chances of a Shockwave themed repaint aren't that good. It would require a second alternate head, an alternate hand, and at least a couple other retools, to really pull it off. Even then it would be a bit of a stretch, imho.

    Soundwave would, imho, make more sense (though I don't think it's likely to happen either).

    Either way, Gen Perceptor looks like rubbish.

    If there's an M on there, then there's always a chance at a TFCC / Botcon Magnificus. With a name like that, he's hardly going to be modest.

    I really hope this is one of those figures the ends up surprising me when I get it.

    At the rate things are going, it'll be 2013 before stores here get his wave :lol

    Agreed. It looks pretty bad from what I've seen so far.

    He's right y'know. It looks like the legs make up at least 98% of the mass of the figure.
    With such a blocky, kibble-less G1 robot mode as the basis, you'd think they could have done better with the Gens version in terms of making it look more evenly proportioned.

    Just basing my opinion on what I've seen so far.

    I'd love nothing more than to be proved wrong on this one.

    I just think you really cant judge from the pics hasbro gives us anymore the only way of really gtting a good indication for me at least is when Fans actually get the figure in hand and transform it correctly.

    Even if he's horribly mistransformed (I don't know how you can tell, considering those are the only pics of them that exist) the general look of him doesn't feel like Perceptor. He looks like a Perceptor repaint of someone else who happened to have a shoulder mounted cannon.

    Personally he'd look better as snow cat, (seeing as how his alt mode almost looks that way) not perceptor.

    It was hinted at one of the panels at BotCon 2010 that Shockwave was getting a new figure. So maybe a new one is coming soon in Generations?

    Its genrally been said by people who were at botcon that a lot of the figs from cybcon are very mistransformed also looking for yourself at figs like scourge or tracks and thunderwing you can tell. Also i wasnt talking specificly about these pics figs such as Genrations blurr and rotf lockdown and almost evreything we have seen from hasbro in preview pics has been horribly mistransformed.

    Also the people who were shown the figs at botcon where presented with them by the desighners and most of the people there said they looked good.

    You sure they weren't talking about Transformers 3? And I'm sure you meant Botcon 2010, since we haven't had Botcon 2011 yet.

    IIRC, there has been a rumor of Hasbro reusing the Energon Shockblast mold for Classics-Generations. As far as a new mold, I'd say that you're definitely right to say that we should expect a new Shockwave figure to some capacity
    given his role in TF3
    .

    Yeah I meant 2010. It could be either. This was before we knew about you know who in TF3.
