    A voyager size would be perfect. Hopefully somebody will release it...

    If HASBRO doesn't, then I am calling out FANSPROJECT!

    Shockwave is my very favorite character. Hopefully with his inclusion in the movie, his time from animated, and the various bits in other recent media Hasbro might finnaly give us one since he's now known to the public.

    Problem is that I hope it's not soon unless they change the current Generations toy policy of "deluxe class only".
    I don't want the classics Shockwave to be a dwarf.

    I mean, c'mon, he only took care of an entire planets worth of cons for a handful of millions of years.
    They need to cut him a break.

    Maybe one of the 3rd party's will make a figure called "Jolt-ripple".

    Same here. What the hell? I would take a Soundwave over probably half of who we got since CHUG started.

    I think that DotM and it's [potential] success will warrant more Shockwave figures. If we don't get a Classics-styled Shockwave very soon, I'd be really surprised.

    I don't want to sound like a smart ass or anything. But I think that Energon Shockblast is a great Shockwave toy for the classics shelf. I own one and I gave him a new arm and I'm in the process of painting him. IMO he is the best thing and I can't see Hasbro making anything better, unless they give him a better arm and cooler alt mode. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see a Classics Shockwave, but like stated above it HAS to be a voyager and NOT a deluxe.

    Who doesn't?

    And also, I tried putting DOTM Shocky with my classics.. He sticks out like a sore thumb.

    I agree, Energon really has a lot of good molds. The Energon Leader Class Omega Supreme and Takara Superlink Voyager Galvatron G are good Classics stand-ins also

    True, but the RTS line had plenty of classics-style figures and (although they may be rather elusive) they did produce voyagers for that line.

    I wonder, if they make him a ray-gun again, if they'd pain the tip orange.

    I thought about using him for a stand in but then someone brought up the good point of why buy something that you hope to replace so I've passed on him.

    I just hope it doesn't end up as one of those wait and wait for years on a Classics style release in a deluxe or larger size.

    They have to, what with the recent spree of criminals armed with miniature Walther P38's and purple space magnums!

    I want a classic style of a lot of stuff. Blitzwing probably top on my list. Triple changers are my favorite. <3 Astrotrain and Octane/Tankor

    The character that's my favorite wont get possibly remade for a long time but I've been patient since Classics started.
