The first round of pictures definitely did not do justice to this. These pics show a lot more of the detail and the color is a lot better. While I still am not a fan of the off-center tank barrel effect, I guess it works ok for this toys particular purpose. The 'Cons are seriously lacking in terms of flyers now so I'm kind of surprised that they went the tank route with Shockwave but since they did, I'm glad they made him a beefed up tank. I'm just curious as to whether he's actually going to be this shade in the movie or if this was primarily done to the toy just to mollify the fans. Regardless of color, alt-mode, whatever, I like his design/role as a movie villain much more than the Fallens design. Very solid, stout looking character.
