The official Transformers Facebook page has updated with new promotional images of both Beast Hunters Voyager Class Shockwave and Ultra Magnus.

First up, Shockwave. As you can see, his snap on armor IS removable!

His bio is as follows:

The cunning and brutal Decepticon scientist Shockwave plans to clone an unstoppable Predacon army!

Take your Transformers adventures to the next level with this incredible Shockwave figure and his spinning Hyperflux Cannon! Whether he’s in robot mode or Cybertronian tank mode, he’s a scary enemy for any Autobot, and his snap-on beast armor gives him protection against his Autobot enemies’ attacks. Keep converting him back and forth so he can handle whatever you throw at him!

Next up, Ultra Magnus!

His bio:

The Elite Autobot special forces commander is ready to bring the battle to the Predacons with the mighty Forge of Solus battle hammer.

Predacons beware, because this Ultra Magnus figure is just the Autobot to take any of them on! He’s a Special Forces commander with a mighty Forge of Solus battle hammer to use against his Predacon enemies, and his flip-down missile-firing launchers will make his enemies think twice before taking him on. Convert him to truck mode when he needs to make a fast escape or chase down his Predacon foes. Keep converting him back and forth so his Predacon enemies can’t keep up with him!

Wahahahahaha :D

That's why he can have a solid robot mode all the time.
Not complaining on that point.

Wouldn't it be nice if he isn't a partsformer and the cannon stays attached at all times.

The robot mode is awesome, so there. [-(

That said, I actually kinda like his H tank mode. It's giving me some G1 Galvatron/Armada Megatron vibes.

... a poor man's blue Prime? :lol:


Well, there was his original PRID Voyager:

Shockwave you are mine! =P~

WTF Magnus, someones stolen your paint. I can just imagine his instruction sheet now...

1. Open box
2. Remove the forge
3. Throw the rest in the trash

Not a patch on the PRiD version IMO.

Am I the only one who hates the blue on magnus?

The PRID Voyager already had horrible blue... and now this is lighter than allspark blue. It's just ... :SICK:

The cyberverse Magnus has the best shade of blue IMO.

Shockwave does not look too bad... Except for crab mode.

He isn't, his instructions are already in the hasbro database and there is not partsforming.

This.


And Shockwave's h tank mode... if there were some way to retool his arm cannon, I could see it as being TransTech Megatron.

I'll get that Shockwave.

Ultra Magnus.....skip... I'll keep the first version of him from this line. At least it was a unique mold. Although I find this ones hammer superior, I'm not spending 23+ dollars on a hammer.

Why couldn't Prime UM have just came with that hammer :BANG_HEAD:, i wounder if Thundertron gets a BH make over and an actual sword he can hold.

I wish they would have kept Magnus's cab over mold.

I really wish Hasbro would just give Shockwave some kind of speed boat mode so he could look like SOMETHING while keeping this bad ass robot mode.

My problem with Magnus is that his original mold is more than good enough to warrant a Beast Hunters remold. Maybe it's just me, but despite the short vehicle mold, I like the Magnus mold way more than the Optimus mold. But again, maybe that's just me...

I love Shockwave all the time, and I'm thrilled that we're getting a Shockwave figure, but I DO wish that for once he would have a proper 'earth-vehicle' mode.

All-in-all, with Wheeljack's new armor, and all the Predacons, I'm pretty pleased with this line. The one thing that would make it perfect is a Breakdown with removable armor. [spoiler]I don care if he's dead, we are getting a Dreadwing after all.[/spoiler]

Eh even with its horrible shoulder joints, which just boggles me sometimes, the prid version is better. This magnus is just too light blue.

Is it me or does Shockwave seem vaguely Toy Story-esque? Like he's got that exaggerated, simplified style TS has. Or maybe he's just dimly reminiscent of Emperor Zurg...
That mutant crab/tank mode is so ridiculous it's kind of awesome.

UM going from a unique mold to blue retool of OP is a massive step down.

I can't say I love what look to be relatively immovable feet, but other than that, I can find nothing wrong with Shockwave.

This figure shall be a purchase-on-sight.
