    Provided that the deluxe WFC Shockwave toy looks like his concept art:

    The cannon is in the right? I hope it'll be reversible.

    I keep my WFC guys displayed with my classics. I believe that makes me ******ed or something

    On topic, I think he's G1 enough to easily be a classics Shockwave if one so chose. Shockwave never had an earth mode anyway, a flying laserjet is just an update of his original G1 alt mode

    If I buy FOC Shockwave, I'll consider him as a Classics figure.

    I'd love to say that Shockwave will be a classics fit, but I said the same thing about WFC Soundwave. Then I saw the actual toy and didn't think he fit at all. So I'll say tentatively...maybe?

    He'll be a part of my classics crew.
    I'd rather we get a FOC Shockwave than a regular generations incarnation, 'cause they would probably give him an earth mode. This way he has a cybertronian alt mode as intended.

    I picked the third, but only because I would rather him stay on my WFC shelf

    I probably won't get him as I loathe WFC, but if I do get him, he probably will.

    I think it's absolutly beautiful if it matches the concept art, but on MY Classics shelf I need a voyager Shockwave (I think thats the first time I've ever been picky on size class)

    If I remember right it was on the left in the game, just flipped in the concept art.

    I'll definitely be using him as my classics Shockwave, It'll fit right in with how I use Megatron and Soundwave as my classics versions.

    he can stay until a better version comes along... i really want a voyager sized shockwave, but all the decpeticon jets and astrotrain are undersized as well so i guess its ok.

    I don't see how you could possibly top this as a Classics Shockwave. Of course, if a more "G1" version came along I'd buy it, why not? But Classics are updates, and this updates the concept of a Cybertronian-mode purple one-eyed villain who turns into a flying space gun rather comprehensively.

    Sinnertwin, let's be ******ed together. Know something cool? I also have a Classics Soundwave that was widely released for peanuts, has a boombox mode as well as a mode that actually does something, 100% classic weapons, and is an all-around creative and fun toy to boot!

    I'll definitely get him, and I doubt that we'll get an official Classics one, so he'll be my Classics Shockwave.

    Honestly I'm expecting a different model since they went and changed Optimus. Shockwave's a tricky guy to get right, but I'm over having giant guns floating next to my jets.

    If the toy looks good enough I'll get it, but I doubt I'd use it as a Classics Shocky.

    Hell yeah he'll be my Classics Shockwave. I love the design of FoC Shockwave, and I like how his alt mode looks like a more practical version of his G1 alt mode with the giant cannon in the front (assuming it's the same in FoC, since all we've seen so far is the robot, IIRC)

    I just hope they don't make him tiny like they're doing with the RiD/DOTM toys. As long as he's about as tall or taller than WFC Soundwave, I'll be happy.
