    Could be the grey Radio Shack version Galactic Man. Or maybe a KO.

    If it's got die cast it could be an Astro Magnum. If it's got plastic, it could be an Astro Magnum KO.

    G1 Shockwave was acquired from the Galactic man toy, which came first. My Shockwave has these markings. The Radio Shack gray Shockwave (referred to as Shackwave) may be different.....

    Might help out or at least get you going in the right direction.

    Were there different versions of Shackwave / Galactic Man for different markets? Mine (UK, Radio Shack / Tandy) has colourless transparent parts, where the one in the photo has red.

    I have the grey Radio Shack one. This is not it. The main reason I say this is that the translucent "gun" hand is white/clear, not red tint as in your photo.
