The ever-helpful 2005 Boards member D-Drive has shared some exciting news with us - it seems that little rumor going around a while ago about upcoming Voyager Class toys in the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters series was halfway true, because wave 2 is adding Shockwave into the mix! Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Wave 2 will feature Shockwave alongside wave 1's Optimus Prime and Predaking. No pictures are available as yet - possibly something to look forward to at the US Toy Fair?

The full listing text from Diamond is reproduced below:

TF PRIME BEAST HUNTER VOYAGER AF ASST 201302 (C: 1-1-1)
The Autobots and Decepticons from the world of Cybertron have battled for aeons; now, their war comes to Earth with the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Action Figures which add a new faction to the mix - the Predacons! These figures, in a larger scale, feature the traditional robot-to-vehicle or robot-to-monster transformations, plus detailed sculpts that make these the most realistic Transformers yet! Choose from figures including Shockwave, Optimus Prime, and Predaking. Window box packaging.

I'm thinking we might get our first look at Voyager Shockwave tomorrow, either by Facebook or that toyfair that is displaying Beast Hunters.

Preparing for imminent shortpacking.

Incidentally, Shortpacked Shockwave is an awesome band name.
Kaijumaster
Someone at Hasbro is probably really mad now that we ruined a surprise for Toyfare.

yeah, like everyone complained FOC Shockwave was and we know how hard he was to find.......
Backscatter
Good news indeed, Voyager Shockwave!
megatroptimus
"detailed sculpts that make these the most realistic Transformers yet!"

Hardly... But sign me up for Shockwave.
Theprimeoflegen
I wonder if he will be loaded with spikes ?
Yaujta
..and the cup is now full.

Buying multiples. Guaranteed!
Mrbobcom
Its good to see hasbro are coming up with origional molds for some of the arms micron repaints that were of some eagerly anticipated characters!

Oh God no

Most realistic yet. But you have to add the paint.
Obsidian X
I hope he fits in well with classics.
FOC Shockwave is pretty cool but too short to fit in as a classics Shockwave.

Regardless, I'll buy him.
Weitat1988
hope something new to replace my energon shockwave

^^ This. I liked FOC Shockwave quite a bit, but it just lacked the heft & height that the character seems like it should have. Hopefully this one will be a good size and plausibly 'classic.'

If it has spikes all over it, I'm bailing to get the 3rd party one. Boo on spikes.
Bountyan
I'll need to see it to actually get excited. I've been disappointed with a lot of stuff from Hasbro lately.
JukeOutlander
Awesome.
Atomatron
down for 2 for sure

if spiked, will just cut that stuff off

Actually I've seen several at Target but I'm not a fan of Shockwave in FOC especially his dinky flight mode body. Most of the FOC have been disappointing to me. Shocky looks much better in Prime.
Deadboy
Man, I hope he isn't shortpacked. Two Shockwaves in that wave, please, Hasbro. He's a must have and I don't want him to be a pain to find...
Timesynch
Cool! If Wave 2 comes with a nice selection of figures, I may just hold off for now and get a case instead of (more expensive) individual purchase through BBTS.

Shockwave's CGI design does have spikes on him, particularly the head "horns", wings, and especially his segmented arm cannon hose. I think you meant to say hopefully he doesn't come with lame-o beast armor, but if he does, maybe it can popped off like Smokescreen's armor.
ToddJumper
Would suck if it turned out to just be repackaged FOC Shockwave as it is in Japan.
konrathink
If he folds up into some Cybertronian mess then no thanks.
Zaibach
Awesome. I hope it looks good. I'm not sure i'm ready for a fruity colored version.
bookwormdalek
Well, now I feel kinda stupid spending all that time looking for FOC Shockwave. I hope this is a good toy and not like any of those crazy ass beast hunters designs we've had thus far.

How could it be a "Voyager", then?
NemiMonkey
Okay going to admit I first read it as Voyager Soundwave.
Reading it's actually Shockwave has me extremely excited. Since his first appearance I've wanted him to get a figure. Let's hope it's not like FOC Shockwave. I really don't want to have to stalk Hasbrotoyshop to get him.

In the mean time that's pretty much me right now.

Can't wait to see the figure.
YoungPrime
Lets see....

G1 Shockwave....Voyager
Animated Shockwave...Voyager
Bayformers Shockwave...Voyager
Shr.... I mean TF: Prime Shockwave...Voyager

Generations FOC Shockwave...Deluxe????!

Thanks Hasbro, you screwed us again.
General Tekno
Well - I have high hopes for Shockwave, after having gotten the first two Beast Hunters Voyagers.

Really intrigued to see how he turns out.

That was a deluxe and it is confirmed that this Shockwave will be a Voyager.

You can probably bet that he will turn into something Cybertronian. With the type of cannon he has, I'm tempted to say tank.
sh002
That's cool. If BBTS sold this and Predaking together as a set of 2 I'd preorder that. I'm ok without Optimus.
Dinodigger97
I betcha he's going to be a storm of off color purple and gray plastic!!
The Bucket Kitten
Can't wait to see how he looks in toy form and what he transformers into.
Also, he'll more than likely be bought on site.
gokuz23
I'm so happy :,)

A while back there was a sheet with takara swindal hardhead teflector and a voyager class shockwave trust me there is hope
Lazerwave
I just have a feeling it won't look like the Shockwave from the Prime tv series, Because most of the new Beast Hunter toys don't look like the real deal.

Dear God.. Grow Up.
Ektris
Well I'm pretty excited for this one. Not many in the BH line have caught my eye, so I'm hopeful for Shockwave.
Scantron
Think I'll cancel my pre-order for Beast Hunters Voyager Prime and Predaking with BBTS and hold off on those until they get pre-orders up for the Shockwave assortment. Might be easier and/or cheaper to get Shockwave in a set of three with the other two, rather than on his own.
General Tekno
You know, given electronics are still clearly a consideration for Voyagers, going off Grimlock, and how little space lights take up these days (they were able to wedge them in Grimlock's head after all)...

Would anyone be opposed to Shockwave having lights built into either his chest or gun? Then we could maybe get a lightup eye/chest.
Ratchets Hatch
Well that's no surprise at all. The big question is going to be is what his alt mode is. I'm hoping for a tank myself. I'm also a bit disappointed that there is only one new Voyager in Wave 2.

Speaking of which, where the hell is Beast Hunters, anyway? The TF shelves at all my stores are utterly devoid of life.

I'm sure he'll have a light-up something.
RedAlert Rescue
Have you folks considered the 2013 Botshot/Jumpshot Shockwave might be based on the Prime version of Shockwave ? and that the Cybertronian vehicle mode he has might be a similar tank.

But you never know he may never be shown to Transform at all and he might only ever be in 2 eps and then get killed off by Predaking to show how hard he is with Shockwave having never Transformed.

After all if you have Shockwave unless they play it for laughs between they why would you need Knockout still ? it does not bode well for one or the other to me.
Formshifters
I have a mighty need!
closetrat
Bring on the pics!
Thundershot
Hopefully the case won't be 1x Shockwave, 1x Predaking, 2x Optimus Prime....
Autovolt 127
Oh yeah Voyager Shockwave. FOC Shockwave can now officially stay with the Classics guys from now on.

I have a feeling that he'll be designed like Smoekscreen with the spikes being just attachments you can easily take off so he can be Season 2.

Nice thought! I'll probably do the same. Especially after seeing the price breaks on the Prime line this past year for the case assortments.

You mean more so than the TV design already is?
