    That's good. I can deal with smaller figures if they maintain a decent range of movement. Thanks for the answer.

    I want this figure almost as much as I want that Fall of Cybertron Voyager Soundwave. This will definitely be bought on sight! Great review! :thumb

    Whoa. This toy is gonna kick ass for me as none of the cons you listed bug me.

    Looks to easily be the best of the wave.

    Awesome review, easily the toy I'm looking forward to getting the most from Wave 1 if not the whole line of FoC toys. I do wish his legs were not so skinny and hollow though.

    Nice review. Bot mode looks like home run. Cyb mode is a mess, for the Cons as usual, story never ends.

    they should have left the purple barrel cover on the actual gun instead of having a kibblefest on his heels. No gun arm either :/ Not impressed personally, I guess Wheeljack and Vehicon have raised my standards, Maybe I'll get Fireflight.

    Addendum - Cannon placement.

    The instructions did not mention that you can flip the hands and peg in the cannon like his gun arm.

    Initially, it was like this:-

    Basically is is blocked by the hand guard

    The instructions (at least on mine) left out the step where you can fold the arms and attach the cannon like his gun arm

    Updated in 1st page.

    I suddenly like this figure more. Glad you can integrate the gun into his arm.

    Love and need this guy.

    It helps that I've put so many hours into playing as him on the DS.

    Seems kinda of strange, so this FOC shockwave is the same the TF Prime Takara version shockwave, AM-29 on preorder now? Didn't know these two lines share the same shockwave....

    Only differences I see with AM Shockwave is that he has purple forearms and a remolded bit for his micron. Other than that, yup they're the same.

    Can you do the arm integration on both arms or just the right arm?

    Looks ok. I'll certainly order one if I see him available, but I won't be too sad if I miss him.

    Learning of the knee swivel, and arm cannon attachment ability just made this figure look much better.
