    I was just a TRU checking for Wingsaber and the latest goodies (no luck I'm afraid) but I was glancing at the Cybertron Minicon two-packs they have and noticed one of the Minicons was named Shockwave (a black jet one). Does this mean that Hasbro has reclaimed the rights to the name "Shockwave"?

    IIRC, they reclaimed it quite a while back. About the same time as Bumblebee (I think)

    Yeah there was a little buzz about that when we first saw the in-package pics of that minicon. Shame they didn't get it back before Energon though.

    I didnt follow all the conferences about it much, but was also really glad to see the name back. Even though there would be no 'cockblast' without the other name so we got some good chuckles out of him.
    That's one of the times when I love transfans, thinking back on how we accepted ,humorly critisized and changed old things like that in our own special way.

    However you view it, its good news to have the name back at last. Hopefully it'll be put to good use - say, in the TF Classics line or the line that follows on from the movie?

    He would make a badass figure at a Voyager price point! Just look at E. Shockblast's robot form- if only he had a better alt form, he could be Classics Shockwave!
