    Do you think we'll get one? I'm looking for a Classics standin for the guy, but I'm hoping that Generations is generous and gives us some Shockwavey goodness. Think we'll get one? Or will I need to find a different stand in-and who would you reccomend?

    NOPE. if we get one in the next 1.5 to 2 years it will be because of the TF3 movie...not universe or generations.

    Most likely not, since he's in TF3. Just a movie toy for now. :)

    THis. and besides we won't get him in the form we would all like him to be in even if we did get a Gen/RVS Version.

    Will we ever get one? Yes, I think so.

    Will we get one before DotM? I'm thinking no, unless Hasbro/Takara have done a good job of keeping it hush-hush.

    I hope we get one. I've been wanting a Classics Shockwave figure for some time now (especially since I don't have a Shockwave toy at all). I'd even accept a War for Cybertron Shockwave as a Classics Shocky.

    Speaking of WFC, since WFC Soundwave is capable of transforming into a boombox, I hope they give the same treatment to WFC Shockwave (if they make him, that is), obviously resembling his laser gun mode from G1 while still being the Cybertronian Jet.

    With DotM coming, not a small chance really.

    But with that being said, do we think the movie toys are going to be as radical as they have been or will they follow in the path of some of the new movie-esqe figures and mix the two styles so it wouldn't be such a radical departure from classics and kinda blend in a bit with the rest of our shelves.

    I sure hope so. Probably won't be until after the movie junk, like others have said though. I'd LOVE a "classics" shockwave though!

    I'd say we will get one once the DOTM line is over. The movie will increase the public's awarenes of him. Once more people know who he is, they would be more likely to pick up a figure of him.

    Just like Lockdown, Lugnut and Blackout have done previously, I hope that Shockwave will be "in" enough after the movie to get him in a different style (in this case, classic-ish). If the others were able to go from animated to movie, movie to animated or animated to classic, so can Shockwave!

    It will likely end up like Jazz where we have to wait a long time after the movie before we ever got one.

    Given some of the classic characters Hasbro has been digging out and updating I think the chances are really good that we will see one some day.

    Energon Shockblast/Superlink Laserwave will be a good place holder for now.

    He's reeking of awesomeness! :thumbs2:

    LOL "Capable" is a bit of an overstatement regarding WFC Soundwave's mistranformation. "He's kind of transformed like the G1 figure but parts are still loose and it barely looks cohesive" is more like it.

    Anyway.

    With so many great customs based off of the Energon Shockblast mold, it'd take a great bit of work from Hasbro/Takara to top anything found so far in the Radicons sub-site. All he really needs is arms and maybe a better alt-mode, depending on who you ask.

    Yes indeed. Considering that Hasbro has been doing Classics whenever they get half of a chance since 2006, and considering that they are putting out guys like Straxus, Skullgrin, Thunderwing, and maybe even Black Shadow, considering that Shockwave is headlining the next motion picture, and considering that Hasbro put him up for Hall of Fame consideration...yes, we will get him.

    I'm not going to count on seeing him within the next two years, what with DotM and Prime going on. But that's not the same thing as never getting him.

    Also, he might not go on my classics shelf but I'm expecting Movie Shockwave to blow us away.

    I really wanted a WFC Shockwave, love his design, his character is awesome in it.

    Sadly I think as others have said it won't be until DOTM is done and gone off the shelves before we will get one that's not a Bayformer.
