Ooooo; not really a fan of the tweak to Shockwave's brow.
shockwave: "Am I doing it right?"
Me: "Not like that! Like this!"
Vague thread title is vague
I'll get it because it's Shockwave, but it'll probably stay on the card. Not seeing any reason to open it up.
Body sculpt is decent, but the scowly eye and alt modes are just downright cringe-worthy.
Even as a kid i would not like it.
Yeah, I'm out for good now. I was holding on for Shockwave, but I just don't feel like paying for that. The legs are what bother me the most, they just show how many corners they really cut.
Is that the warrior class shockwave?
That head design is starting to bug me on Shockwave. Why does he look like he has the robot equivalent of hair in front of his eyes....erm eye. Think I'm going to skip him now. To be honest if the Cyber Battalion figure didn't exist I probably would just get him and knock that pin out for his gimmick weapon and keep him as a more articulated action master.
I guess the only interest I'd have now is if they did a Soundwave that looked as good as his artwork does.
Shockwave looks good so far. Big reason is that unlike Cyberverse Starscream he actually has working knees. His alt mode's odd but we knew that from the get go. It's at least different from the alt modes Shockwave usually has I'll give him that.
They better repaint his RiD Warrior figure at this point, that is a good mold, better that anything Cyberverse we've seen so far.
Yeah, it's pretty bad when the Cyber Battalion figure one-ups a mainline figure.

To be honest that group shot really shows how Shockwave is not the type that gets visibly angry easily, and if he does it's not his eye that shows it! That's what's scary about him. not digging that brow anymore.

If this Shockwave was done as a proper Voyager, without that stupid scowl eye and the gimmick cannon thing, and with ankle tilts, it would be decent.
The eye comes off more as annoyed to me, which suits him. No one else understands whatever technobabble he's spewing which is irritating.
