    so this is my first time wading into the cyberverse pool. i really haven't found a figure i was that into. stuff like no articulated knees for no real reason bugged me and stopped me from getting anything. but man...these spark armor figures are pretty cool. i won't be getting all of them but some look good and having these two specifically in hand has me looking forward to future releases...spark armor specifically since they seem to nail it in some good ways. i'm hoping the leak list is right as i can't wait to see how their optimus primal, waspinator, and blackarachnia turn out. and possibly silverbolt if he's beast wars over g1.

    I have the Largest Slipstream and I like that it's bigger than the warrior releases. I find the warrior seekers "pegging-in the tire to halt the spin gimmick" is nice. No knees did not bother me too much as I got them all on sale.

    The Tiny Turbo Changers Wave 1 is pretty decent. Could use some extra paint apps, but that's what toothpicks are for right? :) 

    As per usual, some Bot modes are better than others and some vice versa. BA is great. So is Grimlock. Starscream may have the best engineering ever in a C$4 toy.

    Megs and OP decent with slightly different transformations than usual due to their weapon (OP's really needs paint!).

    Shockwave looks awesome in robot mode but can be a bit too spinny at the waist and his weapon thingy is 'eh' but does give options with how to spin his torso.

    Hot Rod and Soundwave have arm clearance issues. You would think Drift and Prowl were identical but they have totally different transformations and both need some paint on those white cars.

    Jetfire is ditto on the paint. Really lazy transformation but great bot mode. Bumblebee is release number 5000 so nothing much new there.

    Hamleys 1 Utama Mall in Malaysia

    They got Shockwave/Ratchet/Starscream/Prowl in so i imagine they somehow got wave 2 case in first instead of wave 1

    Nice find! I can’t wait till they hit the states. That Shockwave looks cool. If you can please post some pictures of him after you open him up. :)

    Sweet! Yeah that looks awesome. With the satellite it reminds me of Energon Shockblast. I’m supposed to receive the whole wave one tomorrow. I can’t wait!

    Ok lets proceed with the pictures first

    IMG_20190815_001838.jpg
    Battle class Shockwave and Solar Shot support vehicle

    Decently articulated, only missing joints for the neck, waist, wrists and ankles.

    Quite some stuff going on with the chest too for the transformation

    IMG_20190815_002031.jpg

    Yes. Yes, he can absolutely use SS as a gun. The hip on mine isn't enough to support the whole weight of the satellite but you can definitely pose him like so

    IMG_20190815_002128.jpg

    Even better: Gunhead formation without transforming any of the two units. Just plonk SS onto SW and we're in business

    IMG_20190815_002250.jpg

    Now for the Spark Armor combination, you need to take these components apart. Note that the bright purple bits are made of soft rubber
    IMG_20190815_002506.jpg IMG_20190815_002623.jpg IMG_20190815_002545.jpg

    Stock combo. Feel free to explore the various possible combos because he's begging for it :D 

    IMG_20190815_003615.jpg

    Partsforming is required to have the left gun arm as the tank turret but

    BUT

    Why make a normal turret when you can totally mount an orbital cannon as THE turret?

    That's should do for now aye.

    Totally digging this, especially when the vehicle isn't another caterpillar treaded vehicle :p

    Two things come to mind when I see that new Shocky.

    1) Reminds me of that robot enemy from the Earthbound series that can replenish its health.

    2) Shockwave has a fan stuck to his ass.

    I do like him, but I wish his gear wasn't hot pink. :confused:

    Up until now I've been content with my CW Shockwave, but your little mini-review just put him on my must have list.
