    I have a very strong feeling someone is gonna customize Shocky's gun for an ROTF Megatron (after watching Peaugh attached the blade to it). Outside of painting it, not too much has to be done.

    He looks pretty awesome. I'm highly considering him. :)

    Thanks for showing the gun arm on the left hand. While you and other pre-owners are right, it's not as smooth as on the right, I don't mind it at all.

    At this point it's the only non-legend/scout figure I have any intention of buying from DOTM.

    This review confirms that Shockles is the only TF3 toy I want.

    That's odd. Like LimeWire said I get the message "there is content by peaugh shown, not aviable for your country, sorry". I even tried vtunnel.com to get around such blockings but then I get the message that the video can't be found. I wouldn't mind if it was one of the Human Alliance Toys but Shockwave...Failtube you fail me yet again....
    Since it said that it's "content by peaugh" that got blocked I thought you had it restricted to the usa. But if you didn't do anything to cause that, then I'm sorry if I sounded rude.

    Wow. Honestly, this review has made me do a 180 on my initial opinion of this figure after the first pics leaked. I want one now, lol. Next to that awesome new Leader Class Ironhide that was just revealed at Toy Fair, this is now the only other DOTM figure I will buy for sure. Great review Peaugh. :thumbs2:

    Thanks for the review Peaugh. Shocks looks very muscled up. Is he still supposed to be the cold calculating persona in the movie? The design seems to clash a bit with that...

    Btw, your vids show fine in the Netherlands.

    Great review, I'm glad to see he is roughly the same size as Megs/Optimus the early photos that got leaked made him look kinda dwarfish.

    Shockwave and Sentinel Prime for me, are miles above anything else we have seen in the DOTM so far...

    Nice review, looks a pretty decent toy, sort of tempting, but.. so far tho, the only one I'm definitely getting is Voyager Ironhide (good review on that too, btw). So far, DOTM is very easy on the wallet :)

    Cool but I think I won't buy him depends on how big he is in the movie.

    It's possible to easily remove the hand from the right arm so it doesn't stick out so much for the cannon arm. Also removed the spring and thickened the sliding tab on Roadbuster's weapon so he can deploy his weapon in gun OR chainsaw mode without it automatically springing shut.

    You can also totally swap out the forearms and hands on Shockwave if you want a more G1 look, but he loses some posability and the ability to transform this way, at least without some serious modifications to the forearms.

    kinda. But also : [​IMG]

    Ironically, imo..G1 Shockwave's head reminded me of VF1-J.

    I think I need that OP mechtech weapon for Warbot Defender to replicate the weaponry from Last Stand of the Wreckers. Thanks Peaugh!

    Wait, why can't he transform with the gun on the left hand?
