    Wow. Shockwave might get confused with a terminator rudolph the red nosed reindeer with that box art.

    Don't tell him I said that though because shockwave is a awesome toy.

    I agree. :3

    But man, they totally screwed up his transformation. Did... did they actually remove his hips?

    Why, in the pictures, do they show us the bright and vividly colored version then the one WE will get... withe the dulled down colors? I would rather just see one so I am not as disappointed. BUT That aside, I am getting BOTH Skywarp and Shockwave. I will be a broke, happy man...

    Maybe there will be a purple repaint of Shockwave. Just thought that the Cons could use more purple.

    Lugnut's purple, Skywarp is purple, She-Scream is purple, Starscream is close to purple, Blitzwing and Blackarachnia are part purple, and Scrapper and Mixmaster both feature purple.

    How much purple do you want, exactly? :D

    Even though I already like Shockwave the way he is, and even though there is already a lot of purple on the Decepticon figures, I'd still like to see a repaint similar to this:

    [​IMG]

    It's just a bad digibash I threw together of one of Peaugh's review pics, but more or less gets the point across. For as much as I dig the smokey blue/grey color scheme the toy already has, I really don't like the red on it and think the 'traditional' monochrome scheme of muted purple & grey with a yellow eye would look much better.

    But that's just me.

    Wow. I might actually like the figure if it looked like that enhancement. Otherwise, I am not impressed by this rendition of Longwave (will no longer call this Shockwave until I see it in person).

    Definitely excited for both of these figs. My Animated Starscream figure just seems so.... lonely... without at least one Seeker to park next to him. It makes him seem more evil.

    This just made my day better:lol 

    But yeah, Shocky Prime looks too cool to pass up, especialy if he's a better double-agent than G1 Punch/counterpunch ever was IMO.

    Skywarp is a pass for me, I'm holding out for Femscream and/or Sunstorm as Voyagers.

    I still think that Shockwave design looks damned lame in Purple.

    Really the only reason I see anyone would like the way it looks in purple is because SACRE BLEU G1!
