    o_O .............................To me, "Close Minded" would be giving up on what you'd really like in fear of being called "Closed Minded".

    I just want a G1 based Voyager class Shockwave with no silly gimmicks.

    So if Wendy's doesn't have any nuggets I'll just go to Chic-fil-a.

    ... Actually, you've made me start looking forward to a large/armored Shockwave. :thumb

    Yes there are other manufacturers if you gotta have it a certain way. Ironfactory makes fun stuff.

    I don't see how it would be beneficial to them to lie. But hey, they also said that the "scale" feature that Studio Series is using would be brought over to Generations during Siege, so it's possible that this is just a smaller Leader Class Shockwave, but his level of engineering warrants the Leader Class price point.

    The IF stuff sounds great, but it's much too small for me. :(

    Well technically Shockwave DID have some type of armor/upgrade/other modes in some fiction he had in the past like Animated,and IDW for example so in that regard Shockwave has had a similar gimmick which fits his character just as much.

    The prime figure also had armor, though not all enveloping

    Hey guys, we have a Decepticon! Time to nuke the thread now!

    I like that fact that Blowpipe is using something that resembles an 80s cellphone in calling in an airstrike.

    Hmmm......You showed me some 3P DJD figures a couple months ago. They looked great it was just the Legend to Deluxe size that put me off. What size are these?

    These are legends, incredibly pose-able, super detailed can be $30 shipped. I can't say enough good things about the quality, which is amazing; lots of screws and pins in these little guys. But I can't afford to go 100%, Especially with Siege Prime coming out. If Hasbro is going to make a quality product, I'm going Hasbro. And to me they're stepping up their game. Prime looks to have zero hollows and ankle joints.

    I think things would be less tense around here if everyone found a 3P release valve for when they were unhappy with official showings. But when Hasbro rolls good stuff out we need to show them loyalty.

    Gads no. If HasTak make a product I don't like, I go without.

    I am very concerned about how Shockwave will turn out, but putting that aside, I am seriously looking forward to seeing how Megatron and the Seekers are imagined. I was never a fan of the Tetrajet design, but if it's more like the Cybertron style, I'm all in.

    Yeah, I've got this feeling that Megatron will be arguably the best Voyager Megs to date BUT that weathering crap will ruin the overall design.

    Fingers cross that I'm wrong though.

    Weathering (If done like prime) can only enhance Megatron

    I'm really digging the idea of an up-armored Shockwave, but that's probably just because I love that particular gimmick and all of its anime vibes. |

    I can see us getting a Space Gun inner Shockwave that combines with an armored hull and treads to form a space tank. Then in robot mode some of the tank panels open and he gets ludicrous missile spam or solar panels a la Shockblast.

    yes yes, people need to think that maybe Hasbro it's just not trying to recreat the G1 TOYLINE in sense of scale, but as gimmicks too.


    Chances maybe Shockwave it's a voyager with a backpack gimmick or something like that, if not, he'll be just a leader class without gimmicks of armor.

    Maybe his gimmick that will bump the price will be lights and sound.

    Ultra Magnus shows they're not strictly trying to recreate the G1 line, however. Definitely a G1-ish slant, but it doesn't appear to be a hard rule. Sounds more like gimmicks where it works/can be justified, and kinda-sorta true to scale - based on what they've said and what they've shown. That doesn't mean that some things won't fit that pattern, and it means taking them at their word.

    Honestly I bet, the original laser barrel will definately show up, maybe attached to some treads or some legs that can have a decent submarine mode
