    A while back there was a rumor here that Energon Shockblast was going to be reissued...was this just a bad rumor or has anyone heard anything on this subject?

    It'll be relesed later this year as a Target exclusive along with the white Leo Prime.

    Woah! Cool. I hope Canada gets it in Zellers.

    Which we probably won't.

    Only thing I remember was a poster on this site who was trying to get some other tfw members to go in with him on some custom Shockwave parts. The parts would replace some of the parts from Energon Shockwave and turn him into a "Classics" Shockwave.

    Shockblast is coming out again? Is he in shockwave colors or is it just a straight re-release?

    I really hope it's more than a rerelease and at least a repaint in more G1 colors. I really wish Shockwave just got a new mold, since the Energon Shockwave(blast) has horrible alt modes and after seeing all Hasbro did on Animated Shjockwave I think they could make a much better Classics Shockwave mold

    I agree with you. Energon Shockwave was a different character, and as such should not be used for a Classics Shockwave. Give us a new mold Hasbro! Stop shoe-horning all these G1 characters into Armada/Energon/Cybertron molds! Your raping those molds! (Always wanted to try one of these statements since they are so popular nowadays...)

    Personally I would hope that they wouldn't waste a repaint on Shockwave...seing how the Energon release was 80% close color-wise. I would hope they give us something new and exciting paint scheme wise!

    I think they did regain the rights to the name recently...I think there was a Robot Heroes figure with the appropriate name, and for some reason a minicon. I could be wrong though...

    Even though I'd want a more G1-esque Shockwave for Classics/Universe, I'd take an Energon Shockblast as a good stand in for my Classics Decepticons. Just get rid of the green, please!

    If you get an Energon Shockblast and Energon Sixshot and do some parts swapping...you can get rid of the green and make your G1 "accurate" Shockwave...or something closer to it.

    i really hope this turns out to not be an exclusive as i dislike the practice of giving stores exclusives as it makes some figs unnecessarily hard to find, i understand the marketing principles behind it but that doesn't mean i have to like it

    Sadly, I think the rest of Universe here is going to be store exculisives, which means I won't get my minicon 10 pack. :(
