    Ok, so I saw Shockwave Animated in A Bridge Too Close, and I saw these claws he had. I love Shockwave in the animated series, and he just got cooler when I saw that. But then I was thinking how much different he was from Longarm (his double agent alias), and I started to look at Longarm and start converting him into Shockwave. This is my impression of how he's gonna end up in the Animated series. It was a bit of a quick sketch, but I like the way he turned out. If they make a toy of this, I will be SO happy. Better be a Voyager......

    Yeah, they're making a toy. That looks really cool, but it's a shame they made him a dual character so that he can't look G1

    I personally like this Shockwave MUCH more. I dunno, but the sorta stoutness (don't know a better way of describing it) of the original Shockwave kinda made me dislike him. He was too purple as well, and just needed a bit more........stance. He looked like he was slouching all the time. I like this one because you can see stature in him, and he looks more alive. Though if they combine the PERSONALITY of the original Shockwave (comics) with this new Shockwave look, I would be sooo happy.

    Pretty cool take on Shockwave, I'd say.

    Sweet drawing.

    He looks very G1 to me. It wasn't being a dual character that made him not geewunny, just because none of the characters sans a handful are G1. He's one of them that got redesigned. I don't much like him being a spy, but He's frickin' awesome.

    He could only be more G1 for Animated if they made him purple and gave him a gun hand.

    I never liked his original color scheme. I actually prefer this one much more. Maybe if they made a sorta Energon Shockblast color scheme might look good. Maybe someone can digibash this in that color scheme?

    "Long Arm" I took as being a [Cybertronian] crane of some kind. I bet my bottom dollar Shockwave is really a tank (the gun turret telescopes to hide itself). A tank fits with his name (pretty much all the TFs' alt. modes fit their name) and is probably the only thing he seems to transform into anyway (aside from transforming into Long Arm).

    Good pic. At least we can now see a [specualted] full-body shot.

    Im just hoping someone else can do the alt mode, cause I'm fresh out of ideas.
