So much for the myth that they're smaller.

I've seen this figure in person on two occasions now, and I can assure you they are smaller.

Great Pics!! This line of FOC figures sshould sell really well. I am just hoping that Takara/Hasbro, and the retailers realize that and stock-em up.

Shocker looks sweet. Maybe later on they will give him a voyager size to go with the upcoming voyager Soundwave and Soundblaster.

Smaller how? He's the same height as Soundwave here and his legs seem to be as thin as they are due to needing to fit the gun in between them in alt. mode.

When I was at Toy Fair back in February these were on display and a guy from another website brought WFC Megatron and did a side by side. Megs dwarfed Shocky, Jazz, and Prime.

Look at the top picture again. He's a half a head shorter than Soundwave easily. His antannae are about even with the crest on Soundy's forehead, and Soundwave's own ear antannae just up from his head. Soundwave's shoulders are also taller than Shockwave's wings, although kibble is a difficult one to argue with.

I'll have to see them in hand, then. These suggest Shocky is only slightly shorter than Soundwave(mostly due to the shoulders, their chests are at the same height) and Soundwave is about the same height as WFC Megs.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a nice figure and he's going to become my Classics Shockwave. I think when you get these in-hand you'll see what I mean. You might also want to check out the video review that I just posted for FOC Jazz.

Looks nice, there. :) He'll be my Classic Shockwave, that's for sure.

In the second image, he is clearly about a head smaller, and Soundwave was small enough as it is.

Misleading pictures in regards to the height. But a good looking figure which will be bought as soon as possible!

In his first appearance, he had two hands. ;)

Gotta love that lightpiping.

Sucks that toys as a whole are smaller these days (though it looks like Shocky can see eye-to-eye with WfC figures, at least), but there's little you can do about that. Not to mention there's always going to be size discrepancies in just about any collection.

Are their any shapeways or 3rd party Shockwave g1-looking arm cannons you can buy that might fit this guy?

Or is their anything out their that can pass for one?

I might have to buy 1 and 1more to customize into more G1

The Shrinking Deluxe Syndrome annoys me, but it's a cool looking figure nonetheless. I'll be picking him up.

Wow... that is an amazing Shockwave. I might have to buy two. One to keep in the package and one to pose awesomely next to my movie Shockwave. X3

There's a guy on eBay doing preorders for Shockwave right now. I'm not sure if I trust him though since he's cheaper than on tfsource.com. :/
