    The cannon is hard plastic, besides those two bits (the left hand and sword), there's not that much to be improved on SS Shockwave, unless you want to remove any references to the ROTF voyager Megatron (upper tighs and arm muscle), but even that someone would have to be a perfectionist to remove those bits, and not everyone has the ability/experience to remove integral parts of a figure

    Ah, my mistake. Thought I saw the cannon flex in the video.

    What about the heels or those heel support pieces? Are they soft plastic too or was I still seeing things?

    Actually, Shockwave looks really good, and Im very critic of modern Transformers.

    He will be my Decepticon leader with some KSI Boss troopers like Decepticon seekers.

    Shockwave actually looks better than the box art renders with the more muted purple metallics.

    Wheelie and Brains, however, are out of scale compared to the box art renders. They are super, super tiny but well painted for their size. The human figure is actually oversized and has almost no paint except for a small part of the face.

    So he will fit in with those sets of army men that almost no child has these days. Yet I caught flack from people who defended his leader price point. Those little 3 specks of plastic + a Voyager shockwave do no equal a leader. What a joke

    I dig that. Kinda like grindor/blackout as well as comparing the vehicle scale of original rotf long haul and rampage. Those should have been bonkers huge guys

    Shockwave is bigger than the average Voyager figure but is on the small side for Leader class. Doesn’t help that Megatron is so big for being a Voyager.

    The extra $20 is the major downside for Shockwave. Otherwise, he is very well done and the paint apps are the best I’ve seen in SS line.

    I put some comparison pics here:

    Here, you can see SS Shockwave tower over Siege Shockwave.
