Automaton Toys has shared some interesting information regarding Tarkara's new Chronicle sets over on the Cybertron.CA forums. As we already know the Chronicle sets pair up G1 reissues with their DOTM counterparts, so far Takara has released CH-01 Optimus Prime, CH-02 Megatron, and it's rumored that CH-03 will be a Bumblebee set.

Now for the interesting part, Automaton Toys has reported that the inner flaps of the Chronicle boxes reveal pictures of possible future Chronicle sets. CH-01 Optimus Prime reveals the aforementioned Bumblebee set, a set containing G1/DOTM Ratchet, and a G1/DOTM Ironhide set. CH-02 Megatron reveals a G1/DOTM Starscream set and...................... a G1/DOTM Shockwave set.

For the moment these sets can only be considered rumors, as Takara has remained tight lipped about future Chronicle releases. Could fans finally be on the verge of a long awaited G1 Shockwave reissue? Time will tell.

Update: Here's an image of the inner box flaps courtesy of the snakas twitter feed.

IDK why but the Ratchet set seems great to me.

Hmm. I'm not all that interested in these timeline sets. I'd rather see Encore releases. But if this is hinting at a possibility of a Shockwave release, that would be amazing.

You and me both, and I already have an original G1 Shockwave. For display purposes I like to replace original G1's with releases when possible.

Since my parents won't let me get a gun (megatron. Yeah, they're uptight >_<) I've been planning to make Shockwave leader of my decepticons, courtesy of the comics. So this G1/DOTM Shockwave might be the key :grin:

For me, I'll be happy with the Megatron, Starscream, and Shockwave sets. =P~

how old are you? i'm sorry to hear that. parent's can be a drag sometimes.

i wouldn't mind picking up G1 shockwave.. i'd also be interested to see what the dotm paint scheme would look like.

i think at this point however, i'd like the see a leader shockwave and megatron.

I'd love a black "Shackwave" Repaint from Shocky!

I have a real minty G1 Shockwave so i don't really need one of these but it is great news cause i guy could be tempted if it's the right price. Plus for everyone who can't afford or find one that's in good shape this is a much needed release, no doubt.
I'm not much for reissues but i can get behind this one. Everybody needs a Shockwave in their collection and G1 is the definitive version.

For weak elbow joint purposes i'd rather have a reissue than an original! :lol:

I am updating my profile now. I grow tired of answering that. :lol: (15)

Eh, when I get enough money, and get older, I will buy Megatron, and nothing can stop me! *Megatron's Evil Laugh*

If it makes you feel better Gyro, my mother was all "You're not getting Megatron, you have enough toy guns. You're getting Omega Supreme instead!".

Admittedly that was 25 years ago and I did end up getting Megatron...even if I had to wait nearly 20 years! :lol: So hang in there, you'll get him eventually!

Not as bad as your parents not letting you play any form of Call of Duty. Or any other M-rated games, but strangely they'll let me play Halo. Strange indeed... :???:

Shockwave would be cool. Although there is high quality KO Shockwave available for about 70 bucks. So unless you swear by the Hasbro name, this figure is nothing new.

I might try to pick up the other chronicles toys. Will defiantly get Shockwave, probably will never buy the Bumblebee though. The only Bumblebee I have ever wanted is the Cyber-fire one and I am still looking for it. I have 3 BB's from the first movie and I didn't buy any of them... very interesting birthday party... :lol: :CON:

I remember my mom banning me from watching GI Joe or having any in the house cause she said it would turn me into a "war monger" and violent but let me watch Tour of Duty, A Team and hardcore war gore movies like Hamburger Hill. Which was pretty violent for the time.
Anyhow.......pardon my little interruption. Carry on

A. I doubt this Shockwave rumor is true and B. I can't imagine he'll be half as good as the original given the treatment the Chronicles Megatron got.

I'd love the have a G1 Shockwave though and agree that an Encore release makes more sense.
