    Holy f***. I dreamed the last night about ironhide getting two re-releases:

    -One with the Dotm Weapons
    -One with G1 colours

    Now seriously, ironhide will be seen again the next week in the NYTF and probably Wonderfest (eh, he actually wouldn't appear in the WF, but barricade could).

    Movieverse Ironhide in G1 colors?
    That would be the 1st time I would actually consider buying a repaint of a figure! :eek:

    Oh, I'd get Shockwave. I just don't know what his alt mode would be, since he never transformed.

    Just throwing this out there, but based on how similar the tank modes look on both his cyberverse, and voyager class figures, I’d say he did indeed have an alt. mode designed, even if it was never seen in the film:

    I need some movie concept art to verify that. So far, Driller is his alt mode. Luckily for us I've been granted a sneak peak at a prototype MPM Driller:

    There's also a lot of unreleased concept art from the movies, this alt-mode didn't came from the nothing, it was inspired by something, because there is no way they would scratch it when it was used by two different toys.

    I'd be completely fine with MP's of the non- transforming bots not transforming either. The toy alt modes were kind of ridiculous and also managed to compromise the bot modes in the process. I say keep it simple for a better toy.

    I'd accept this Cybertronian tank alt mode for MPM Shockwave only if the bot mode had those tank tracks hidden entirely. They're visible on both toys in the bot mode but never visible on the CGI model.

    Yeah I don't mind made-up cybertronian alt-modes at all. They just need to try much harder.

    Looking at the CGI model and the Prime 1 statue, i’d say that if they engineerd the wheel in such a way that it would free roll for car mode but if it’s pushed in or pulled out on it’s rolling axle turns into a ratchet joint it will work as a shoulder joint.

    Getting the wheel in the shoulder is something else entirely and haven’t figured a good way to do that yet.

    Then again that’s HasTaks job, not mine :p

    well, if they managed to make the wheels in ironhide able to be inside in the hips, anything can be happening.

    This is the closest thing I found to a concept art:

    [​IMG]

    It's the Botshots art and here it shows Shockwave as a tank. It's not concrete proof but it further verifies the fact he's intended to be a tank.
