Big news, folks! Thanks to Facebook user Dallas Mace, we have a potential leak of an upcoming Titans Return deluxe figure: Shockwave! Now, this is still just a rumor, but as some Peg Tags at a North Carolina Walmart have revealed, we have a more than slight indication that a Deluxe Shockwave is in our future. Check out the provided photographic evidence!

UPDATE: Fellow Seibertronian jamesbenjamin points out that the barcode seen on the tag corresponds to that of Fall of Cybertron deluxe Shockwave from years ago, as seen below.

Transformers News: Possible Transformers Titans Return Shockwave Revealed [UPDATED]


We'd suggest diving into your bag of salt once more, and just consider this a misnamed placeholder for a new deluxe figure from the Titans Return line, though not the purple Decepticon commander after all.

This might seem a little *ahem* illogical, however, seeing as he just got a legend-class toy in the Combiner Wars toyline, but hey, at one time during CW we had two different sized versions of Skywarp on the shelves at the same time, so anything can happen!

He's based on the CVS-36 USS Antietam based on the number and Carrier mode, to make it much more Historical based :DANCE:

Ooh; that's a pretty impressive resemblance aside from the colours and a few cases of unavoidable kibble. Absolutely loving it


Expect TakaraTomy to ruin the homage by slapping his G1 accurate "98" on it:

You sure it's not 86? as in the year written below the picture

The smaller 'o' of the 8 is facing us, indicating that the number we're looking at is upside down. The upside down rubsign also helps.



Ah right ;)^ thanks

weird though....you would've thought that they could've numbered it to coincide with that year

Why would they have a name tag specifically for one of the four (or one of five, even) deluxes in the wave? That... doesn't make any sense. Considering it's not even listed as 'Generations' it could be some special RiD figure for all we know.

There is also a possibility that's he's a Walmart exclusive fig. So that's why he gets his own shelf. But of course this hasn't happened with The two marvel legends exclusives they had so far.

Will this new Shockwave be revealed later this month at New York Toy Fair? Stay tuned to Seibertron.com to find out, as our coverage will be starting soon!


That's the barcode for FoC Shockwave from a few years ago. Check the gallery and you'll see the barcode # is the same.

The last number of every barcode is a check digit. It is not part of the number of the product.

I literally said this is not Shockwave, but another deluxe Titans Return figure. How is that misleading?

EDIT: I changed the phrasing again, for ease of understanding.

That was the misleading part, in addition to the "except for the last digit". Thanks for clarifying.

Fun fact: Aircraft carrier numbers are oriented to face the planes taking off and landing. Ehich means the Hasbro # on TR Broadside is actually the one upside down

Where did you get "we hope this toy is rereleased" vibe from? All Destron said was the supposed Shockwave toy (if it exists) would be the figure he has been wishing for. All I said was that some of us couldn't get/didn't know about the FoC Shockwave, so a new Deluxe would be nice.

Posted by RAR on February 5th, 2017 @ 3:31pm CST
One possible way to make that Shockwave work (sort of) with the TR theme would be to leave him with the original head and remould the gun with a mini-robot mode. either a normal Titanmaster that fits in a new gun frame, or a brand new weapon type of robot as some sort of exclusive mini-theme.


That would allow old toys to be re-released and loosely tie to the theme. it might even be possible to simply sell the arms Micron version and keep the insectoid Micron accessory.

I'll be interested to find out what it's all about though eventually.

I must try to get some part lot or Junker WFC Shockwave sometime as the one I bought was missing a foot.

Posted by SillyMcGilly on February 5th, 2017 @ 3:47pm CST
WFC Shockwave is not being rereleased in TR. I doubt it's even going to be part of a Platinum set, and that's the more likely thing. If anything, this was either a mistake, or they are making an all new Shockwave. Heck, it could also be a mislabel for CW Shockwave.
Re: Possible Transformers Titans Return Shockwave Revealed [Updated] (1857324)
Posted by Kurona on February 5th, 2017 @ 3:54pm CST
To me it's clear it is a mistake. That doesn't mean that a new Shockwave isn't coming, but labeling a case assortment with the name of one of the figures in said case instead of just "TRA GEN DLX" or something of the sort doesn't make any sense. The only possible way this isn't a mistake in my mind is if it isn't part of any wave or standard size class and is a special figure in his own right, which would certainly be strange for multiple reasons - no labeling beyond just 'Shockwave' and special figures not being started with someone more popular like Bumblebee or Optimus being prime among them.

... or. Hear me out.

Didn't we just have a vote where we could choose one out of 9 contestants, implying all of them at least had some toy design ready? And wasn't one of those contestants a certain mono-eyed purple logic loyalist? ;)
