Transformers 3 Shockwave figure

Postby 3bcustoms » Sun Feb 20, 2011 1:46 am

Is it me or does Shockwave resemble Megatron from Beast Wars ? his right arm reminds me of the T-Rex head, even the whole overall design looks like that Megatron, and Shockwave in vehicle mode resembles Rat Trap from Beast Wars..the version when he transforms and has wheels as his back legs..I don't know maybe it's just me ? you be the judge ! I still think it looks cool and I want one :D

Here's Shockwave

I bet they recycled molds to save cash and that is the worst looking vehicle mode yet. Someone let them be an f'n gun for once :evil:

Not very impressive, but I have never been that impressed with the overall design of the Movie Transformers. On a positive note, at least he is purple and his head is recognizable.

They started doing that with the NEST wave of movie figures, they gave them more of a g1 look head and vehicle wise.

Typical crappy bayformer designs. They're going to kill off Reveal the Shield and Generations for this dribble like they always do and wonder why the things collect dust on shelves for a year until it's blowout time and they reintroduce the classics line under a new name and sales go back up.

This is just my opinion, but I can't understand why everyone is blaming Micheal Bay for all the crappy designs, I mean I doubt he's the guy sitting down with a pad and a pencil coming up with the new looks, and on top of that it is obvious that Hasbro approves of the new designs.....I can't understand why people want to complain that the first 2 Transformers movies sucked when most if not all of us have sat down and watched them, I would go so far as to say that I'm sure most of us actually liked the first 2 films when they came out, I mean what's not to like.....great cars, great action and IMO cool looking robots, there is absolutely no way that any of the Transformers classic looks would work in the real world....what did Ivan Vanko and Justin Hammer say to each other in IM2, oh yeah!.."Don't get so attached to things, learn to let go" well why not let go of of the hatred for these new Transformer designs and give them a chance, think about it ?.........as for merchandise, I actually prefer the movie figures over any of the classics or these new lines that have come out, also IMO..any toy line whether it's Transformers, G.I.Joe, DC Universe or any Marvel figures they all have the risk of being dust collectors on store shelves..........I'm just ranting (not trying to start sh!t)
