And I'm back!
Still trying to orient myself to return back to making comics after working on my commission project, so please bear with me a bit.

Anyway, as many would have already know by now, Cyberverse Shockwave turns into a spider tank.
Compared to the imposing spider tanks designs that I've been accustomed to, this is just sad. You can't even make it's gimmick work properly on either modes.
Now just try to imagine Shockwave doing the spider walk from the Exorcist. :P

The robot form definitely looks better than the alt mode. That is... kind of bad. Why didn't they just stick to a gun or cannon?

Gun laws, I presume. They probably can't just make a gun mode without getting in trouble or making it look bad (orange cap)

I understand putting restriction on real guns, but putting them on toys which above all else, look like toys is just plain silly.

You should have seen tutti frutti Megatron.
Paranoia and fear can do a lot in affecting even the most simplest of things.

That is ridiculous. Whatever happened to just teaching your kids to play with toys and never to touch the real weapons or better yet, keeping your weapons locked up and away from kids?

Yeeeeah... Even the Shockwave that was only at Walgreens stores with his jet mode was a better idea than this.

Heck, the new Siege Shockwave they showed off at NYCC looks miles cooler in his alternate mode. (Which looks like his G1 gun mode upside-down.)

You know that part where I disagree with you all or play devil's advocate?

Nope, totally agree. As a robot, Shockwave looks... maybe not good, but adequate. As a "spider-tank" it just looks like you stopped transforming him halfway. @_@

Despite its issues, Walgreens seems like a better choice than Cyberverse.

Yeah, lots of great figures coming out next year its too bad they keep increasing their prices.
