    AD-18 could be Shockwave with two heads. Or just Shockwave.

    I can't think of a way how they'd be able to make that retool work and still transform?

    Only reason I'd say that they may not be dead is that I think it's the same wave as the Dark Soundwave, which, iirc, hasn't released either.

    That is why I said it could be just Shockwave.

    Problem with Two heads is, both heads are different and not same like original Shockwave head. Two heads also have no cannon, but second blade.

    I'll gladly sell you my pre-release retail sample of Darkside Soundwave for $300 all in.

    Release date is months off. It may never be released at all.

    From tfwiki:

    For unknown reasons, the ID numbers AD18 and AD19 are left unused. Whether this means that two toys were planned but ultimately canceled is up to anyone's guess.

    Shame, because Takara seems pretty solid with these releases. There's only a few that I think have missed the mark, but for the most part they're pretty darn good.

    After receiving the glorious black knight Strafe from BBTS, my interest in these two mysterious figures has been renewed.
    What happened to them, and what figures are... or were... they going to be?

    Got this email from TFSource earlier today, couldn't see it anywhere else online, so thought I'd post it here:

    Anybody able to corroborate this?

    Would love to know what these really are, or were :(
