    And if it's a tank be specific about the tank.

    An Abrams Tank like Brawl, just a purplish color.

    To fit with his whole "Cold War" thing [with him being seen in Chernobyl and all], let's make him turn into this:

    Soviet Tank T-64. If I am not mistaken, this Tank was exclusive of the Soviet Union.

    I for some reason love the idea of Shockwave being "russian".

    I've always thought an Apache helicopter might be a great idea. Just orient the cockpit horizontally and it would work really well as his window-chest.

    That seems about right. I don't know who has one, but a self-propelled rocket launcher like the one below would be a good general configuration. Replace the launcher with some sort of energy weapon and you have it.

    Hailstorm already took that.

    If it was antique, I'd love to see him as a Vietnam War Huey. Pops up, humans are like "haha, that's not a threat", and then he blasts them with an awesome alien laser. Like, Romulan drilling laser caliber.

    If it was modern, I agree with Wheeljack. An attack helicopter seems really fitting for Shockwave's slow but unpredictable approach.

    I don't think he should be a gun platform. That's immobile. Shockwave's not the kind of bot that likes his handles gripped by others.

    I would have him turn into one of those Maser cannons from Godzilla.

    Nice to see some good-hearted Godzilla fans here.

    You know, Skyhammer is a dead ringer for Shockwave in my mind's eye. Look at the chest design. It's hexagonal!

    I'd make Shockwave a sports car like the Alternators version.
