    I just got my hands on FOC Deluxe Shockwave. But I had a hard time choosing with side his cannon should be on.

    But this is not about my Shockwave. I'm saying any Shockwave toy in General, which arm would you want his gun on, his right or his left?

    Left

    I still hope a 3rd party or a shapeways user makes a G1 accurate arm gun for him rather than the huge one that comes with the toy.

    The right arm. Like Movie Shockwave.

    Why would you want a G1 accurate gun on a non-G1 figure?

    Because I'm putting him in my Classics collection, which is made up of G1 characters. Basically the same reason why everyone customized their Energon Shockblast to look like G1 Shockwave even though Shockblast isn't a G1 character.

    Yeah, there's a thread about using FOC Shockwave as a G1 toy.

    Why not both? I might change it around every now and then to spice things up when I get mine.

    The right arm, I just don't see 'em as a southpaw for whatever reason.

    Buy two Shockwaves and put guns on both of one figure's arms.


    Then use the leftover no-weapon one as Classics MTMTE Shockwave.

    Really, it depends on priorities. If you want game-accuracy, then it goes on his left arm so he can wield a functional weapon in his right (at least, that's accurate to WfC; I can't speak for FoC, obviously). If you want his weapon to be functional, then it should go on his right arm. If you want it to correspond to his G1 gun hand, it should go on his left arm. Personally, I'll probably go with the left arm once I actually get the figure.

    His left arm for more accuracy in the design.

    Just depends on which one I want to use after a transformation. Might be right, might be left, I'm not picky.

    Now this is going to be a bit long. Well, I always love to watch the characters holding the guns in their left hand. This thing gives a style and a trend to the character. Other than that I will also say that this thing gives them a space to hold the other weapon in their right hand.

    It's a non-issue with me on all counts.

    Well, he can be officially repurposed as G1 Shockwave. The design is in the IDW comics.
