    Now that everyone knows about this...

    I'm just afraid of how rare this toy is going to be. The last movie I manage to get voyager the Fallen because he was the main villain for Transformers ROTF, then my friend at ToysRUs told me every day he gets asked do they have voyager Fallen and always the same, "sold out". Now that we seen Shockwave it might get crazy, I might have some competition finding him. So I ask two questions for all of you.

    1) Poll: How many of you are buying DOTM Shockwave?

    2) What wave do you think he is in?

    Don't worry about it.

    If he's the main villain for the 3rd movie, then there will be enough of him to go round.

    I mean I see "The Fallen" often for cheap prices, it's not as if he flew off the shelves or there was a shortage.

    I'll be buying it and one thing about that figure that hasn't been determined yet is size class, although its my guess its a voyager , like the fallen, but a tall voyager bot mode wise.

    IO am sure it will be relatively easy to find.

    I'll definitely be getting him. Shockwave, Ironhide, Starscream, and Jolt are all must-haves for me. I don't think there will be too much of an issue finding him, tbh. As for his size-class, he's most definitely A Voyager. To complex to be a Deluxe, and to small to be a Leader (also can't see it having electronics in it).

    I'm just curious to see what the inevitable repaint of this mold will look like. For some reason I keep imagining the purple replaced by white, the gray replaced by black, some light blue accents added, and the red optic turned blue.

    I'll be buying it. Assuming, of course, that Hasbro UK puts it out at retail.

    I will buy it. Him and Megatron are the only two DOTM toys that have caught my eye so far.

    BTW I still see ROTF Voyager Fallens around. I've revently seen him at TRU and Wal*Marts.

    If it's in the first two or three waves retailers will be knee deep in it for a year.

    Otherwise, it will be an urban myth.

    First few months, we'll all be excited to see it and it will be the most photographed figure in the 'cool stuff' thread. Then it will begin to clog the shelves before eventually becoming an eyesore and everyone will be sick to death of it and post threads complaining we never see any new stuff at retail.

    TRU didn't get many fallens in around here. I found a crapload at Walmart and Target though.

    Shockwave is the 5th voyager we have seen (If the ratchet was real). I would guess he would be in wave 1 or 2. The Fallen didn't get rare till after the movie so you should have a few months to buy shockwave before the demand starts.

    As of now, it looks like I'll be buying it. Time and better pictures will tell, though. From what I can see, I like the head sculpt and the transformation looks interesting as well.

    I will be buying it. I have sworn off movie toys, but I will make an exception with Shockwave, he is too cool to pass up.
