I'm ambivalent about Mech Tech but I worry for Shockwave whose whole arm is a gun.
i'd cry, im just hoping he's well proportioned and has some resemblance to his g1 self
I'd facepalm. I'm hoping is pretty rad and done much better than Fallen was, toywise and moviewise.
The mechtech gimmick consists of removable weapons. Are you trying to tell me that you think Shockwave's entire gun arm, which is probably integral to his vehicle mode, can detach and be wielded by any other bot?
Because that'd be fucking RAD.
Agreed. It would be so awesome to have a Shockwave wielding another Shockwave's arm. And if it ends up that DotM Shocky's arm is something like ROTF Leader Megatron or even Energon Shockwave, well...I'm sure there will be some way to articulate it, because I HATE figures like that (the primary reason I don't have ROTF Leader Megatron)
I'd start praying that one day Hasbro would do a Generations figure of Shockwave.
Actually I'm getting kind of prepared for that one just in case movie Shockwave doesn't resemble his G1 or War for Cybertron look enough.
I'd be quite aggravated. I hope his Mech-Tech is just some random puny gun, not his ENTIRE DAMN ARM.
I was wondering is Shockwave will have an actual arm that transforms into his blaster. It's possible.
I wouldn't buy the figure.
It's totally possible that he'll just be holding a gun, rather than his arm BEING a gun:
I'm surprised we haven't seen a glimpse of him yet ???
...and another arm, and another, holding Starscream's pokey stick of doom, with a Dread bayonet glued on the end.
Although I doubt it'd be the whole arm. At the very least, he'd have one gimpy vestigial arm, right?
No, because Mechtech weapons are all removable.
I'd be a bit annoyed, seeing as how I love Shockwave. I'd pass on it and wait for the classics style Shockwave that has to come sooner or later.
the new pictures of the figure posted in the news section should answer this for you
He looks like a megatron remould with a new head if that is him its a utter defeat of the point of him.... Yet again folks hes not G1 hes bayverse baby....
Although saying that TFA Shockwave was lithe.... hmmmmmmmmm juries out i'll look at him in the flesh..
were you expecting something explicitly G1?
I see a finger poking up mid way up the gun so I am guessing it's clipped on
Who says shockwave is going to be a gun?
...Guys if you look around the forum you'd find BOT mode pics of DOTM Shockwave! The Gun LOOKS attached to whatever arm you put it on but appears to be detachable AND able to plug OTHER mech-techs to it .. In short he's....AWESOME!!
