vic2993 via Planet Iacon on Facebook has shared something awesome with us. He has shared our first look at the toy for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Shockwave! The image is small, but comes from a Hasbro catalog. It indicates Shockwave will come with two gimmicks - a spinning Hyperflux Cannon, which is his gun arm. It appears to close up for a more show accuate look. The second gimmick is advertised as snap-on Beast Armor - in other words like Beast Hunters Smokescreen, Shockwave will have the option of shedding his Beast Hunters spikes to look more like his on-screen appearances so far.

A vehicle mode is also seen, Shockwave appears to transform into a tank or artillary unit of some description.

Hopefully this is one toy we can see more of at the US Toy Fair 2013 this weekend along with all the other upcoming good stuff.

Time to start working on that Voyager Quakewave, Fanstoys.

Too small to really say anything. Here's hoping that it's removeable armor and that we'll see it properly in a few days at Toyfair.

The armour is referred to as 'snap on', so perhaps all that red ...stuff... Is removable, just like with Smokescreen.

I didn't think I'd like it, but... I like it.

Whatever.

Ummm orange, what the oh who cares i maybe waiting to see what takara does

Want to see clearer pictures!

Snap On Armour. Good. I don't usually mind the Beast Hunters armor but orange on purple! That's the second ugliest colour combination to me.

As for the rest of the figure, as far as I can see, it looks pretty good, though the legs look a bit long. It's tank mode looks based on Animated's. I hope it isn't too small.
moreprimeland
At first, I thought it was Optimus. After zooming the image, he has spinning cannons and snap on parts.. etc. Could be interesting.


Actually orange (yellows/reds) works opposite with purple as it has red/blue...it does work, but I'm not an orange fan either.

Be patient. We're lucky to have at least gotten this for now.

Need a better picture to see if I want it but at least this explains the coloring on Shockwave in this year's Bot Shot 3-pack.

It looks like the armor in alt mode gives him a semi-beast mode.

Much bigger clearer pic


Wheeljack_Prime
More here. Much better Shockwave picture, legion Prowl being just a Smokescreen redeco, LOTS of Predacon sketches (including the "Terrorcons", Scourge, Skystalker, and Grimwing)
gokuz23
Yes! Thank you Hasbro for the removable "Armor", this is a definite buy for me!
Thinktank
His alt mode is the same as his new botshot if you un-chibified it.
Yaujta
My guaranteed purchase was never in question, even before a less than clear picture was revealed. Now that there's at least a hint as to what the figure looks like, I'm even more excited for it.
I am slightly disturbed by the potentially gimmick-laden cannon.
MegaDolrailer
I always found the orange on some Shockwaves kinda weird, but at least these are removable!

I gotta see what TakTom does with this dude too, I hope they don't just give him the same Micron as his Deluxe like they did with Megatron.

... But yeah like, those wings he had in the show, those serve no purpose now I guess?
Dolza_Khyron
it's hard to tell if it is any good. since this is a stock hasbro photo.

they always suck.

Abominus looks great!

although the drawing of Predaking is very far from what 'what we got'

I keep wondering if they might be thinking that you can make some kind of giant beasty out of combined armour kibble. Shockwave's kibble seems to come with the feet for example.

If they did the same thing with some of the others (like say Insecticon) then you might be able to parts form an animal out of extra bits and if not it seems Shocky's armour maybe friendly to forming a little spider or crab out it it.

I'd like that it might be like an update of Actionmaster Shockwave's drone sidekick.

It looks like some of those later art pics maybe remoulds of some of the others with things like new heads and tails..

There's some curious gaps in that guide book though - no Weaponizers for example. I wonder if they might be delaying some reveals until a comic convention or Asian show.

I like that the blub is written from Shockwave's point of view.

"Note to self ; No more two headed beasts" for example.
Prime Jetscream
This looks really, really, really awesome. That orange stuff looks removable. VERY removable. Those shoulder things are way too... not-attached. And that chestplate just looks like some kind of weapon slapped on him, usually BH armor that's not removable actually is very obviously stuck on.
With that out of the way, I'll wait for better pics to judge its de-beastified mode.
starscream-99
Not bad. Want to see a clearer pic.
Josh
shockwave = crab w/fingers
Prime Jetscream
Okay, that looks really nice, and I want it now.

Ugh. Smokescreen is officially Bumblebee 2013. I've already got two different versions of that mold.

That, and it's called "Snap-on beast armor".

Shockwave lookin' pretty bad ass!
JDK
So sick. Beast Hunters continues to put the predictably mature RID line to shame.
Gryph
Interesting stuff. It looks like his alt mode is either a tank or gun turret, with the armor changing it into a beast mode.
Ravenxl7
Wasn't sure what to think of Shockwave based on the small image, but after seeing the larger version, he actually looks kinda cool. What I originally thought was a robotic lobster he was holding turned out to be his alt-mode, and a nice reference to his Animated design's alt-mode too. It's nice to know that those orange bits will be removable. That said, I can't say that I'm going to get him. I'll wait to see better pictures, and a review or two...maybe even a good in-hand look, before deciding.

Looking through the rest of the pages...I was kinda hoping that Prowl wouldn't be a Smokescreen repaint, but now that I've seen him, I'm going to have to get him. He looks great, but most importantly, the JUSTICE HAMMER is too awesome to pass-up. I'll get Smokescreen's Deluxe, and the Legion Prowl.

Given the sketch-ups and dedicated pages to the Abominus members, I wouldn't be too surprised if they actually make an appearance in the show. Meaning they could get larger figures. That said, I may just get the Legion Hun-Gurr and call it a day...lol
SlaveToLogic
Underneath that daft orange armour it seems to be a pretty good figure.

I'm not sure about the gun arm though. It seem to split for Transformation but it looks weird in robot mode. Would it look better and work good closed for robot mode?


I'm just going to wait to see better pictures before I pass judgement.
AMG
Doesn't look bad.
Brave Magnus
Alright, the armor is removable and the gun rotates, thats cool! I do wish we get clearer pics of the figure soon. The alt. mode looks fun without the orange armor.
Gingerchris
It's good that the armour will be removable, but I'd rather all that orange shit wasn't included to begin with and the resources went towards a bigger and better main figure instead. Figures get downsized and hollowed-out and then they add in stuff like this. Just like with most Mech-Tech extras the armour parts will probably just be thrown into a box somewhere or carved up for something else. May as well have just given Shockwave a traffic light accessory for all the useful appeal this armour stuff has to me.
BMan7705
You forgot one of the earlier pages in the booklet that was important; it showed official images of the Cyberverse Prowl and Hun-Gurr! Sadly, Prowl is just a Smokescreen remold (adds police lights, etc.). We already learned that Hun-Gurr is a new mold.
TCracker
Looks awesome!
CodeXCDM
...OK... so far most BH molds (to me) have been interesting... but the color schemes... that's some G2 ****. Wait no, I think I'm offending G2 by saying that... but srsly... who is in charge of the colors for these figures!?
Flexx Ark
Shockwave is as good as got/bought.

I figured Cyberverse Prowl would be a Smokescreen and I knew I would want him regardless. I hope they back off of this mold the rest of the year though. I already have the playset version as Sideswipe. I thought Smokescreen would have a mold he'd be recognized for, but he had company arrive quick.

Cyberverse Soundwave is a definite must have.

worst pic ever

Sweet.

I feel this compulsion to own all the Predacons now after reading the guidebook -

Sounds like Grimwing might pull a Dinobot.

Love all the Predacons.

Shockwave looks great....I actually like his Lobster armor. lol
Prime Jetscream
I really want to see what his chest looks like underneath that crab-like junk.

BH Prime for example.

New Hasbro Trash :/. P.S - Animated Alt Mode*
Dinobot747
Yes, just; yes.

So glad they made those orange bits removable. He'll look fantastic once I remove them. Now I'm even more excited for this guy! (I may even preorder the Takara version.)

EDIT: I love Shockwave's notes on the Predacons
citoria
I hope the best armour hadn't become the new mechtech weapon. Shockwave might not be that big
RayTheSun
Is it just me, or is that Skystalker's robot mode really close to the scout guy?

God, I need more Skystalker in my life. And if he doesn't get a Sunspot repaint, words will fly.
