In Takara Tomy's latest round of Transformers Prime Arms Micron releases AM-29 Shockwave has been a bit of an odd man out in terms of in-hand images. Luckily for us the Cat and TF blog has posted a ton images of this guy, including comparison shots with his Hasbro Generations counterpart. The figure features a lighter shade of purple and an Arms Micron figure that replaces the Generations figure's blaster but still manages to integrate into his alt mode. We've mirrored some of the images below, many more can be found here.

Shouldn't that little news icon photo be of AM Shockwave and not Hasbro's version?

EDIT: That's better.

As much as I like the little beetle micron, those things on his wings look disgusting (rhyme not intended).

I'd gladly go for the Hasbro version if I can still find one locally.

They're horribly placed, though. I can understand the added weapons options they offer, but having those two large pegs sticking out of the wings sideways looks awful. If they were placed like AM Soundwave's, where the pegs doubled as gun barrels and faced forward, they'd actually look decent. In Shockwave's case, they look really stupid unless you pegged a pair of guns on them.

Yeah, I'm not fond of a lot of Takara's eye-bleeding port placements either. :BOOM:

:shock: ...and they're pink....

Is there a way to unsee that?

EDIT: Where'd the pic go? Never mind, it's for the best.

Liking the G1 purple over the hasbro one, but I was hoping to see if he came looking MORE like his g1-self. I.E. White thighs,Completly purple arms with whitish-purple hands and arm cannon.

Why would they color a toy intended to be Aligned Shockwave like G1 Shockwave?

Well, they could do some sort of exclusive toy where they color him like G1, but they wouldn't do it for their main line where it's intended to be Aligned Shockwave.

Oh...My bad I didn't know that's what they were intending. Still it'd be pretty cool to see.

Uh oh!

I just realized that this Shockwave's Micron cannon CANNOT attach to Shockwave's arm in place of his hand like the Generations cannon can.

The Micron doesn't have the tab needed to connect it to Shockwave's arm, so the only way for Shockwave to use it while in Robot Mode is to hold it in his fist.

It's a Transformers Prime toyline. It's Takara Tomy Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-29 Shockwave. What did you think they were intending? :???:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOokay.

Wasn't buying this excuse for a Prime Shockwave anyway. Sticking with Hasbro's FoC Shockwave. >:oP

Would LOVE this figure... if it wasn't such a weenie in size. Been tempted to pick him up several times... but he's just SOOO "itsy-bitsy". A voyager would be nice... to fit in with the rest of my deluxe figures. :P
