So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

I'd be tempted to put Shockwave with my Classics...but he's Prime Shockwave, not G1 Shockwave.

If these come out from TakaraTomy they're likely to be the G1 characters again.

IDW is having the G1 guys (Bumblebee, Skywarp, Starscream, Soundwave, Shockwave, Jazz, Sideswipe, Prowl, Bluestreak) use their WFC/FOC bodies too. So yeah there is fiction on both ends that say these guys are G1 guys as well as fiction that says they're Prime guys. WFC still fits better with G1 in my book.

Randy


If IDW or Takara says he's G1, that's enough canon to make me put him with Classics.

I wish there were some canon to make Bludgeon work.

It is only logical to buy that Shockwave.


The other listings are cool too. Makes mew wonder if Dreadwing uses the Skyquake voyager tooling?


Also New Cyberverse listings! that were removed according to TFW2005.

Cyberverse Commander -

Ultra Magnus, Dreadwing (we already know about the Japanese one coming), Skyquake

Cyberverse Legion -

Tailgate (natural Prime Cliffjumper repaint), Fallback, Flamewar (arcee repaint?)

Oh? That's interesting. Would be nice to see Kaye as Dead End on the show. icon-hotrod.gif

If Shockwave is a "large Deluxe" by the standards of our current Deluxes, he's still going to be a short Deluxe compared to most of the Classics toys people want to display him with.

Here's hoping that Magnus is not a Prime repaint.
I'm in the minority in that I normally like those, but if this guy is a repaint that might mean they don't plan on using him in the show anytime soon.

Also, glad they're doing the two WFC designs I wanted most.

If he were FE Starscream's height, that'd be fine. But I really doubt it. The largest of the RID deluxes (minus Bumblebee who I don't have) is Wheeljack, and he's no taller than Classics Starscream, who's not a terribly large Classics deluxe to begin with.

I suspect the size of the RID deluxes has to do with the size of their weapons. Cliffjumper's the shortest and he's got a big-ass axe. Wheeljack's the tallest and he's only got a pair of swords. Soundwave's in the middle and he's got Laserbeak, who's smaller than the axe and more massive than the swords.

Thing is, WFC Shockwave has that massive cannon arm. I bet a lot of mass is going there.

So.

I'm just going to cross my fingers that FOC Shockwave is at least around WFC Megatron's size, who feels like a pretty big deluxe but has a large, gimmicky arm cannon as well.

I'm aware. Hopefully we're not in a trend of deluxes all continuing to get smaller, I'd rather pay a couple bucks more MSRP than start sacrificing size as well as detail.

FoCwave! Scratch one off the top of my wish list.

The imminent Ratchet release for Prime may not bode well for receiving a FoC Ratchet. And the absence of co-op doesn't bode well for him being truly needed in the game, either. Blurg.

Continuity families, schmontinuity...uh, families.

Shockwave will fit in perfectly with WFC Megatron + Soundwave and the Titanium Seekers as the pre-Earth versions of my personal "partially G1-inspired but mostly made up" canon.

And if we get an FOC Seeker mold so I can ditch the Titaniums, so much the better.
