    Oh man. That is actually cool. I much prefer this one to the washed out looking gray one.

    Yeah. It could just be a photography error but I'd prefer this to be released in green and purple than the boring grey one we saw some weeks ago.

    Okay... What. The. F*ck. Hasbro?

    I swear to god it's been 'bring your color blind kid to work day' for a couple of months and that's why we're getting these utterly ridiculous repaints.

    its a photo error in the Tesco's book, not a repaint. The grey plastic appears green due to bad editing on the photo staff's part.

    seriously how could anyone assume thats a new deco? its the exact same as the original except the grays a bit green, shoulda sent alarm bells ringing.

    Could be, but then why are other grey parts on Shockwave & Sentinel still visibly grey and not all bright green as well? If it's a photo or editing error, it should apply to the whole picture, not just certain sections of one specific figure.

    those bits arent grey on the figure tho their light purple thats why they dont look the same. And sentinel is a separate picture so it wasnt edited the same as shockwave

    Okay, I hope you're right. I deal a lot with print design and have never seen such a drastic (and area specific) miscoloring like that, so that's why I was worried. Well, that and the fact that this thread is in the news section claiming it's a repaint :)

    It's the same exact toy. All this "new toy" is is just a weird photoshopping of the initial Shockwave release's official photos. Shockwave - Transformers 3 Main Line - TFW2005


    The news isn't always right.

    That's why it's also a rumors section.
