Shockwave is the lesser of the two ‘Wave’ Transformers (Soundwave obviously being the best because he launches animals from his torso and also shrinks down to a fucking tape recorder. Also his voice ruled), but he is one of the better toys. His laser gun mode was awesome, and when he was a robot he had a hilariously huge rack.
He has lost that rack in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and we are all less for it. I like that this version of Shockwave at least keeps that laser cyclops eye - these robots are imfuckingpossible to tell apart when in humanoid form, so I’ll at least be able to pick him out on the battlefield.
Thanks to Paramount for the image.
