    And let this not be a rant about the acronym CHUG, either.
    Classics / Universe / CHUG / whatever. Dont care- we should all know what I'm talking about.


    Now, how would you want your Shockwave? Truck alt mode? Jet? Tank? Space gun?

    Deluxe or Voyager? I'd prefer a Deluxe, but I'd accept a tank mode that has his more G1 looking gun turret.

    Voyager class, and anything but a tank. Enough with the tanks already.

    I think a space vehicle/artillery would be nice for good ol' shocky. I agree that tanks are a bit overdone even though i love them.

    As for size, deluxe is fine as that seems to be the trend lately.

    I'd prefer Shockwave to be Voyager sized, so he can fit in with Megatron and Prime:thumbs2: 

    EDIT: Alt modes, a Jet would be fine with me.

    Voyager class space gun.

    Shockwave's gun mode is considerably less than earth-based, I don't think they'd have to NERF him the way they did Megatron, and half the reason Megatron's gun mode even works is that the average person can actually hold it. That effect would be lost with a deluxe-sized Shockwave.

    Besides, unless I've missed a confirmed report elsewhere, I have the uneasy feeling that DOTM's Shockwave is going to have an alt mode of "Cybertronian Tank" anyway.

    So as others have said; enough with the tanks. IMO: a classics-aesthetic Shockwave deserves his space gun mode, and needs to be a voyager class size for it to properly work.

    Just say Classics and there won't be a problem. Every knows what it is. But thats my opinion.

    As Shockwave is concerned, I like how Hasbro reinvents the character. Animated and Prime are good examples. But the Animated quadruple changer is my favorite and hope something like that in the future.

    I'd like to see Shockwave in the Voyager size class. I'm having a hard time imagining him in the Deluxe scale.

    As for the Alt Mode, what about a chopper? Might look interesting.

    It'd probably be easiest to simply make WFC Shockwave, but if that wasn't the course of action Hasbro chose to take, I'd like to see them make something that homaged Animated Shockwave as well.

    Failing all of this, I'm still pretty happy with my Animated Shockwave toy.

    I don't care what his alt mode is, so long as his bot mode is faithful to his original design without much kibble (the Energon one didn't have kibble, it would've been great if his arms weren't a terrible idea). Depending on how he looks, they could maybe make him like Lockdown, by which I mean they could give him a transformation that makes him very tall for a deluxe (cos let's face it, deluxe is all we're getting if we get anything)

    As far as alt mode goes jet/tank or gun is fine

    not a truck, car, bike or boat though that really wont work for me

    Usually I don't mind updated and Earth modes, but in Shockwave's case I'd like to see a Cybertronian hovertank. Whether it's WfC or otherwise. Deluxe or Voyager is fine as long as it's a good robot mode.

    It probably makes sense for him to be a tank than some of the others out there, but I agree that there are tooooooo many
