    Dollar General?! Gotta see if there’s one near me. This would fill in as the Shockwave in my collection until I get the Studio Series DOTM Leader Shockwave

    That's new? I saw it a week ago at a Kroger's Marketplace. That's the second time I've seen an authentics pop up there thinking it was old news only to see someone post it days later.
    Next time I'm taking a pic

    I would have called him the poor man's Shockwave, but $10 is pretty steep for this little guy. So I will call him Generic Shockwave.

    I got the Ratchet in this line and frankly, regret the tiny amount of money I spent on him, but Shockwave ... looks... OK?
    Would you be able to post a pic of the back and a couple of Alt-mode pics, please?
    Thank you!

    I've hit about 20 or so stores in the last week and have come up empty handed.
    The search continues...

    I know he's a little simple, but $10 doesn't seem steep for a roughly Voyager-sized figure.

    If you bothered to read the thread title Shockwave is Alpha class.

    Not everyone is familiar with the size class designations for the Evergreen stuff.

    There are some pics of the alt mode here: Product Numbers for Authentics Bravo class Barricade and Alpha class Shockwave

    The legs are hollow of course, and the gun arm, but that’s it. For what you get fir the price he’s great in my opinion. He’s loaded with articulation uncommon at this price point. Head and waisted swivel. Shoulder rotation as well as up and down movement, upper bicep swivel, 90 degree elbow, ball-jointed hips and over 90 degree bend at the knee. 2E8D6C4D-5834-4DA4-89A9-03122914D75C.jpeg

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I found a case of these with one Shockwave, one Optimus, one Megatron, and one Bumblebee at the store I work at the other day. I was thinking of grabbing Shockwave. Should I?

    I think does are more screws than your tipical mainline figure :eek: 

    Weren't pins cheaper than screws?

    Anyway, I find it funny he looks really "Cyberverse" and not really "Evergreen". I know that's somewhat contradictory, but the colors and proportions look really stylized as oppossed to other figures in the Authentics line.

    DUDE, gahd dahmn that looks amazing, full articulation no less....
    Here's to hoping they would shrink it to the Bravo size class one day to replace my Spark Armor one :( :( :(  Soundwave as well for that matter.

    Those could be amazing for legends scale collectors

    It feels weird knowing that he turns into a jet instead of a spider tank. I know that the evergreen designs aren’t exclusive to Cyberverse, but after 3 years of that series, it’s not easy to remove that mental image from my head.
