Imma buy it and slop a ton of glue into those seems. Does it transform? Not in my house.
I didn't say they were right. Just saying I'm pretty sure that's what they mean because there's no other way that MP scale can apply to a ship like this unless it's much bigger than it looks.
I hope you find out it transforms into cyclonus’s altmode
I think it might be Cyclonus instead of Shockwave
So i'm 100% buying this just because of the name alone
The reason is because it was spectated and apparently confirmed in another Lemon tree thread (the BB movie starscream one) that's BB movie shockwave. Also lemon tree only figures so far are bb movie optimus and starscream, so following those up with a g1 mp accessory doesn't really make sense.
Turning him into BB movie shockwave makes little to no sense given the ship, and not to mention the parts that resemble him look to be actual g1 wave.
Wow, that is amazing. Get releasing lemons! Now! They're already three prototypes in, and all look cool. The question now, is quality. Hope the painted prototypes start showing
I might buy that as a one-off, depending on price. Looks pretty cool.
I wish he was chug size so he could fit in with the rest of my cybertronian collection, but I'm totally picking this guy up
for fucks sake, they actually went with it transforming...... uuuggghh, so much for a decently priced ship. can't wait to fork out $100+ over the dam ship mode because of the pointless transforming element.
I still need his alt mode for my legends collection. Head-canon will just have to be that Shockwave modified the ship Galvatron was given to turn into a giant version of himself that he could pilot to take on combiner teams.
I know some people are going to dislike the fact that it isn’t just a regular ship, but personally I love how it turns into a Shockwave.
I hear ya.
Also, since it has electronics, it woulda been cool to have that used to light up the ship in areas, from windowed or docking bay areas all the way to the thrusters, but it seems like it's just going to the head for bot mode, and being a transformer, lighting up all those other parts have now become pretty much impossible.
I woulda still payed 100+ if it had those ship-specific bells and whistles, but yeah...
Oh and hey, this Shockwave doesn't seem to have a gun arm.
Yup, that's me out. I liked the design of the ship well enough and I would've tolerated the hinges and panels if it did something cool but turning into Shockwave is not it.
Hmmn. I don’t really need this to transform as it was never a transformer in the show. Having said that:
1) That’s a pretty clever transformation to get a reasonably Shockwave-esque bot out of such an odd ship design;
2) Putting aside the transformation it’s actually a pretty solid take on the ships design from the movie. And the ship was purple as Shockwave is so presumably the colour will be right...
I can see myself picking this up to stay permanently in ship mode next to Hasbro Unicron in planet mode. Worse case I can fill in the gaps and fix up the paint if I need to make it more accurate. Depending on cost, this is kind of cool. And it’s not like the transformation seems to have negatively affected the ship all that much.
A pity they couldn't give it the iconic G1 lower legs. Would substitute the MP if they had done so.
I wasn't too hyped about this originally.
I thought it would be cool to buy the Revenge, but was annoyed that it would transform into Shockwave instead of Cyclonus or an original character or, you know, just be a spaceship.
Then I started to think: "Why would I buy something I don't really want when third parties are constantly producing all those Movie primes and bee's and dinobots and whatnots without bothering producing any of the many characters that I do want to buy?"
Seeing confirmation that it transforms into Shockwave only made me lean towards that question more.
Maybe I'll buy this if it's really cheap. But if they refuse to produce things that Hasbro and Takara won't, like legends scaled Beast Wars or late G1 MP's or improved chug like a better CW Brawl or slightly upscaled siege Apeface or the like there really isn't any reason for third party companies to exist anymore.
I'm done buying things I don't really want. Produce things I do want or GTFO.
I absolutely love this, the second I saw it was confirmed to be Shockwave. Always wanted him to have a mobile alt mode as a scientist, his G1 alt mode was too boring for me. This gives us a unique iteration of G1 Shockwave with a Revenge alt mode.
Its an unexpected and innovative concept, this is what 3P is about.
Hmmmm, cool figure but not a movie Shockwave to match their other two figures.
Pass for me, Siege Shockwave fills this niche and is basically perfect.
Glad others are excited though
