    When do you think Hasbro is going to make a Prime Voyager Soundwave, and Prime Voyager Shockwave? Is there any news out about a possible release for these figures? I have not been able to find any, but I think the characters deserve voyager classes.

    not sure if this is even the right forum, but no. Neither have been announced and since they made a Deluxe Soundwave, I doubt they'll make a voyager one. Soundwave just needs to be a tall deluxe at best, if scaling is your problem. An inch or so more owuld make him equal height to FE starscream, which is pretty much in scale with everything else (RID and FE).

    As for Shockwave, he literally JUST appeared...so nothinghas been said for him. if we DO get a figure, it'll probably be soemtimes around season 3 being on TV, which will be a WHILE.

    Soundwave already got his deluxe toy in Prime. I doubt he's getting another bigger toy.

    Since Takara is releasing Fall of Cybertron Shockwave in the Prime line I find it extremely unlikely a Prime Shockwave will exist any time soon.

    stands to reason that the first 2 waves of voyagers would have to consist of show only characters, to get attention/sell figures. WIth that in mind, not many other characters to make voyager size without looking even crazier--though I do want a Voyager Ratchet, because he'd be perfect.

    like i said to the OP though, if you want a Voyager Soundwave just for scale, it still wouldn't work. In Triage, he fought Wheeljack and they were about the same height--

    I find myself wondering if Fall of Cybertron Shockwave is supposed to be the same as the in show shockwave. They certainly look similar enough. I'm guessing the most we'd get is a repackaged FoC Shockwave.

    Personally I want a cyberverse Prime Soundwave and Shockwave.

    The design is different enough to make for a Voyager besides their was a Deluxe and Voyager Starscream....why not Shockwave too?

    Why would Soundwave need a Voyager? The Deluxe toy is almost perfect as is, and adding that awful transparent plastic into his joints and a crappy MechTech weapon certainly won't make for a better toy.

    If anything, Airachnid should get a Voyager. She's seriously in need of a do-over that includes her Drider mode.

    Yes just Yes. I always thought her being Voyager made the most sense.

    Well according to a retailer I know, Shockwave will be a deluxe. I believe it's going to be AM-29, not sure if it's just a repacked version of the FOC one though.

    Soundwave is fine as a deluxe, plus his thin arms + transparent plastic, IMO, is a accident waiting to happen.

    Shockwave just appeared so a toy of him most likely won't appear until next year, if a toy is made that is.

    Takara is coloring the FOC deluxe Shockwave toy in more purple colors for their AM toy line. Takara is including a Transforming Micron with Shockwave. The huge FOC hand weapon shockwave comes with might be MIA with the AM version.

    A better Airachnid figure is definitely on the want list for sure, but if they go the voyager route, knowing Hasbro, she'd turn out huge (despite the fact that the voyager size is to accomodate her spider walking legs). She'd seem terribly out of place, but I''d love to be proven wrong

    Never. They will be Takara exclusive and Hasbro will keep making non-show characters and weird redecos.

    Seriously though, hopefully soon, i.e. next year.

    The Deluxe toy can be put on scale to the FE Starscream mold with a simple mod...

    Which I will one day finish.

    Deluxe Soundwave is okay as he is, and I don't mind waiting for a Deluxe or Voyager Shockwave (although I'd prefer a Voyager). What I want is a better Deluxe Airachnid that has the "Spider mode" from the show and a less awkward robot mode (I say Deluxe because she's not that big on the show, I mean Knock Out is taller than her and he changes into a car!).
