    Think we'll get a pre-earth cybertronain laser gun TF3 Shockwave toy?

    it seems like the perfect oppurtunity to get a 1985 shockwave toy homage in the TF3 movie toy line.

    how hard can it be for takara/hasbro to give the fans a pre-earth voyager sized laser gun alt mode shockwave toy?

    I honestly am not a fan of all these radical alt modes shockwave & soundwave updated homage toys. to see shockwave & soundwave as cars in TF3 would just seem wrong & not make much sense for the G-1 characters.

    it just seems these days 3rd party companies can do better updated homages than takara/hasbro. example those 2 3rd party arcee's,faith leader,
    city commander armor,trailer/armor for rodimus prime.mp megatron riffle extensions kit & so forth.

    I dunno. I've never been big on guns as alt modes, so I'd much rather have him be a Cybertronia gunship like in WFC, or a MASER tank like Energon Shockblast.

    No, we don't know what his alt-mode is and all of Shockwave's post-G1 alt-modes have been vehicles.

    I doubt it. I think we're just going to get a TF3 Shockwave toy that is based on his movie design.

    And shouldn't this be in the toy discussion instead of the movie discussion?

    I'm thinking a Cybertronian mode of some sort, probably either a jet or a tank / gun emplacement.

    That said, I would not rule out Takara-Tomy using the chance to reissue G1 Shockwave if the mold was usable. There won't ever be a better chance, realistically.

    You must be joking.

    Unless you didn't want Peter Cullen as Prime or Welker as Soundwave.

    We'll get a really awesome one since I broke down and bought a G1!

    That's just my luck.

    It'll be doubtful since Soundwave wasn't a car, or a tape deck, but instead a Cybertronian Satellite/Jet. Soundwave will probably be a commode/bidet/jet/jackhammer.

    Knowing Michael Bay, He'll make Shockwave's alt mode as another Cybertronian flying thing that looks like nothing like he did with Megatron and Soundwave. And then they'll both turn into armored trucks on Earch... :( 

    Sorry, but after seeing what they did to Sideswipe with making him a not-Lambo, turning Jetfire into an old-fart SR-71, Megatron into something-ish, and Soundwave into a giant weird looking satillite thing, I'm not very optimistic right now.

    Pretty much no way. I'm expecting his Cybertronian alt mode to be very reminiscent of WfC Megs', with no Earth mode.

    Probably another POS, just like The Fallen.

    ...Wait, so a alien spacecraft alt mode is a radical alt mode, but a flying purple space gun (let's face it, it'd look doofy in action) isn't?

    Yeah, I'm expecting a Cybertronian spacecraft. Could look cool, could look bad. We've only seen his head, after all.

    Saying we got Welker is pretty disingenuous, we didn't get Soundwave's voice as you well know.

    Will we get a pre-Earth mode? I wouldn't be surprised. Will it be a giant flying space gun like his G1 self? I highly doubt it. The best we can hope for is some kind of orbital cannon akin to Energon Shockblast.

    I doubt it. Shockwave's an actual transformer, unlike the Fallen, so they'll probably be able to make a better toy without having to add an an alternate mode where there wasn't one.

    Uh, yeah we did. It just wasn't processed as much, but still sounded great and like Soundwave.

    Wait, what?

    not really, it sounded more Dr. Claw but it was nice they went out and got Welker. Bay (Or someone) listened to our complaining and gave us Cullen so I wouldn't say the G1 fans got nothing. As much as I hate the movies, the voice acting is pretty good aside from Megatron. Agent Smith just doesn't do it for me.... I'm still waiting for Megatron to say "Mr. Anderson....".
