Dark of the Moon Shockwave Images

Transformers-3-Dark-Of-The-Moon-Shockwave
An image has been posted by DotmToys on the /toy/ board of 4Chan (NSFW) of what could well be the new villain of Transformers Dark of the Moon, Shockwave. As you can see from the image, it's a very purple Cybertronian looking tank, similar in style to Megatron's own tank mode in Revenge of the Fallen. Check out the image by clicking on the thumbnail to the left.*

*EDIT: Robot mode image from b-o-t of ACTOYS added!

*EDIT 2: Another vehicle mode image from Yahoo Japan user nihaohuwen added!

Rogzilla
Surprise surprise, he ISN'T that jet thing that Sam and Carly were riding in.
Scorpion
I don't buy it...it's Michael Bay's version of Transformers...no way is he still a purple gun..

all joking aside, I can't wait to see bot mode

First off, thank you!!!!

Now, please tell me the bot mode is better. That thing makes the fallen and megatron TFTM alt modes look like works of art.

Very, very disapointing- well, I should wait and see how big an issue mistransformation is...

Well let's be honest here, tanks are just big guns on treads.
Peaugh
You can totally see the gun hose sticking up out of the top of the gun. It should attach to the tank body instead of sticking straight up like that.
Omega Charge
*looks*

*looks again*

Oh I kinda get it... it's some kind of purple alien tank?
eagc7
Yay shockwave!!!!
General Tekno
Let's see....

1. PURPLE.
2. HOSE.

All we need now is David Warner voicing him and we're good.

Yeah, you can see the lightpiping and his horns.
ssjkazer
do we get to see robot mode
Peaugh
Also, with Shockwave being the big bad and clearly hanging onto a cybertronian alt mode, maybe that's why Megatron was finally given an earth mode?

Looks pretty good. Will wait for bot-mode pics to decide, but I'll be surprised if I don't get this figure. Hopefully the bot-mode turns out pretty good. The alt-mode gives me somewhat of a RotF Megatron tank-mode vibe.
UnicronFTW
A cannon arm and a blade arm.
Definitely matches the sillouhette of the comic cover.
xion14
that looks like the nicest of the Movie Cybertron mode toys at least in Alt Mode.

that was my (joking) point...too close to the original. I think Shockwave will be a pink, jive talking, motorcycle

kickass purple space tank? HELL TO THE YES!

That's actually some pretty sound logic.
tehKOREANdude
can't quite tell with the angle of the pic, but it looks like this alt mode is faaar from symmetrical, seeing as how the cannon arm is not centered. it'll look pretty funky, in a good way?, but that's what i expect from bayformers...

i'm expecting all kinds of hell from that hose...deteriorating rubber, just like with g1 shocky, as well as the pipe constantly popping out. that rubber looks pretty stiff, so it'll want to pop back to its perfectly straight position a lot...
shroobmaster
The Fallen and Megatron are proud.

Welcome to the nonsense alt mode club buddy!

Indeed. It took me a second to realize it, but the cannon is not centered, and each arm forms it's own tank weapon. Cannon on (Shockwave's) right, and sword/smaller gun on the left.
Grimlock_13
Honestly, not bad so far. I don't mind Cybertronian as long as the bot mode is good. I realize the movie toys have had a bad track record of that since all Megatrons and the Fallen have been pretty awful but I'll remain optimistic about old Shocky. Hopefully robot mode pix will leak soon!
wm10k
is that supposed to be a leader class shockwave?

wait...supposedly he's supposed to be a voyager, right?

i quite like it that way. better than giving shocky some weakass posability and arm joints like with leader rotf megatron. dramatically asymmetrical robot modes should not try to force symmetrical alt modes.

Voyager.

Giant purple death tank?




Can't wait to see the robot mode!
Stune
Is that a GIANT RUBBER HOSE COMING OUT OF THE GUN ARM/TURRET!?!?!?!?!?!?



Sold.
Anti Spark
As long as he's complex I'm happy.

I felt that ROTF megatron was a weak Tf due to his easy peasy transformation.
tehKOREANdude
i don't think anyone has addressed this yet, so here goes...

not totally diggin the dude's color. i wish the purple was a lot darker, rather than this bright vibrant shade. the shockwave face cutout on set had a much darker purple... anyhoo, i'm hoping that the brightness is a mix of bad pic quality and bad lighting, but if it isn't, i can definitely tolerate it...

At least he's not inexplicably Green.

I dig the purple, personally. Too dark and it stops being purple.

Also, it remind me of black raspberry ice cream, and IT JUST MAKES ME WANT HIM MORE

I'll be surprised if it isn't the lighting and picture quality. After taking the picture into gimp and bringing the brightness down a bit, the purple looks pretty good. Could probably be a bit darker, but it should definitely look less pink and bright in-person.

Didn't see the rubber hose when I first posted. That's definitely a nice surprise. Hopefully it's a good quality rubber, and isn't too annoying to put into place.
xion14
the Purple makes it look like that smooth texture the black on Animated Lockdown has and I like that more then I should.
lordcryotek
Okay, okay. This looks damn good. I can not wait to see the robot mode. I guess if we get sweet figures like this, it'll make up for the ugly brown things they keep on strapping onto other figures (say, "Brown Blob Bumblebee").
Godziboy1993
First off, Toxicon I frigging love you for posting this

Second, that is nerdgasmically awesome. Please be leader class *Chants repetitively and crosses fingers*

i'm just so glad that neither of shocky's weapons look damn silleh

Also, this pic is washed out, it's likely a moderately darker shade than we're seeing here.

It's a voyager. Which is not to say we won't see a leader Shocky at some point. This just isn't it.

Even then, it looks to be the kind of purple I like.
ORIO
Definitely reminds me of rotf megs' tank mode.
Rogzilla
I think this looks much more like an actual tank than, say, Leader Megatron did or Voyager Fallen looked like a space ship.

Random thought: was The Fallen's ship mode supposed to be the Nemisis? And if not, why not? :-P
