    Very nice, and the most logical choice for your first serious gallery.

    This is such a great looking figure.

    Shockwave looks really impressive.

    It’s unfortunate that he was so underused in Dark of the Moon. This design is simply awesome (I’m gonna be honest and say that it’s better than the Bumblebee movie design, which just looks boring and uninspired) , and I’m sad we’ll never see it again.

    I was about to film the post-unboxing portion of my review on this guy today. But... I discovered that my youngest got ahold of the paratrooper and lost it. I tore the whole house apart looking for it to no avail. It sucks because the review is on hold until i find it. :(

    That sucks, I hope you can find it.
    Could have been worse though. Would be bad if it were Brains and/or Wheelie missing.

    Oh, they are now on a VERY high shelf after I found their buddy missing. I'm so disappointed in my son. He knows better and hasn't done something like this in a long time.

    Mine has yet to leave the box, and probably never will. If you end up needing a replacement, send me DM.

    Am I the only that that gets annoyed whenever someone has DOTM Megatron standing -almost- straight? DOTM Megatron is supposed to be hunched over, so his legs are on multiple joints so you can bend his legs on a chicken leg stand, this way he's about the same height as all of the SS Megatrons

    Does it still retain that \'tank\' alternate mode like it\'s DOTM Voyager Class figure?

    Yep! I have a comparison shot of those two in the gallery actually.

    Yes. Although it has been improved to a degree.

    Scale be damned, I really wish Wheelie and Brains were bigger. Tossed those things and the trooper in a zip log bag never to be seen again. Just amazing how small they really are.

    I like SS Shockwave and all, but way too much rubbery pieces for me

    I thought so. Solid joints, everything tabs together securely, and the reuse of some of Megatron's engineering is well done, especially since they didn't make Megatron's leg problems Shockwave's problems.

    The pictures are good.
    But if anything they reinforce my notion that the robot mode is a mess of a design and the alt mode looks like nothing.

    It's funny how I knew Shockwave was going to be in Dark of the Moon but when he first appeared on screen I didn't recognize him.
    I didn't know that Shockwave was going to be in Bumblebee and I immediately recognized him when he appeared on screen.

    It transforms like a Fast Action Battler.
