    I have a feeling that FOC Shockwave is going to be the closest thing to Prime Shockwave as we're going to get. I'm still hoping for a voyager Hardshell.

    Logically I'd like a voyager, but that means he'll have a stupid powerizer weapon unless it turns out like Megatron's, then it will be slightly less stupid.

    edit:
    That seems to be the case in Japan with their Arms Micron line since it appears they released FOC Shockwave as their Prime Shockwave.

    "our" Prime Shockwave is in the same place as a DX Tailgate, a Hasbro
    Breakdown, and Hasbro releases of the minicons.

    Nomansland.


    Also it should come with free stuff because Hasbro OWE us.

    I wonder why Shockwave has seemed so scarce all these years. Galvatron too, for that matter.

    Wasn't there a mention in the Botcon reports about a Voyager Shockwave that they weren't allowed to photograph ?

    He'll likely be revealed next year at the New York Toy Fair along with Hardshell,the New Autobot,and maybe Grimlock. I'm sure that if he's a Voyager which I'm hoping he'll be his weapon can work if done well/ I mean they were able to make his gun work in the DOTM line so I'm certain it'll be the same here.

    Since Hasbro and Takara work together on the figures, and since Takara is releasing Fall Shockwave in the Arms Micron line, I'd say it is extremely unlikely that there will be a new mold for Prime Shockwave. At most we'll get Fall repackaged. At worst we won't get anything.

    I really doubt Prime Shockwave's not going to get a new mold. His design's too different from FOC to have both Hasbro and Takara say "Good enough, fuck you."

    I've had my FOC Shockwave on my Prime shelf since I got him.

    The AM line both have the Deluxe FE Megatron and the RID Voyager Megatron in the same line. So I'm sure that Takara will do something similer to Shockwave by releasing his FOC figure first then releasing his Voyager figure later on as a supered powered version of him like how Darkness Megatron is a powered up version.

    And besides that, Hasbro and Takara have hardly been "working together" when it comes to the Prime line, given the sheer amount of Japan-original stuff Takara has thrown together completely independently of Hasbro. Considering how important he's going to be in future arcs, as well as how different his design is from the FOC one, I'm sure he'll get his own mould at some point.

    Has their been solid confirmation the Arms Micron Shockwave will be the FOC mold? I was thinking maybe they just used that image as a placeholder. And with Takara releasing their own FOC Generations with Jazz and Prime, it's just weird putting that Shockwave in the Prime line. It would be nice if Takara has a new Shockwave mold finished and they just didn't want to reveal it before he was on the show.

    While I do hope Shockwave's weapon is done well, his DOTM counterpart didn't have to deal with the obtusive light up gimmick (only the somewhat less obtrusive mechtech gimmick). Then again, Shockwave's gun arm was fairly massive in the show so perhaps it won't be as bad as the other "powerizers". Well, should we get a Voyager Shockwave that is.

    Same here.

    At least doing that way, I have something there in case a legit TFP Shockwave never comes to be.

    He's probably around...but seeing as the OTHER one episode character [Skyquake] gets a toy a full year later...Shockwave, along with Hardshell, still have time to go...

    I'm all in for ANY Shockwave toy, but I'd be worried about what we'd get if he was made as a voyager. Aside from FE Optimus and Bulkhead, I've been less than impressed with the rest of the voyagers released.

    After seeing the latest episode I almost wanted to put FoC Shockwave with my Prime Decepticons. He's too damn short though. In the show SW was taller than Starscream. If they put out a SW for Prime it has to be a voyager.

    We need hardshell first before we can even think of a prime shockwave figure.
