Fellow Seibertronaians! We now have something very unexpected but no less exciting! Straight off the heels of our last reveal, from the official Transformers Facebook page, not only do we now have an official reveal on the Transformers Generations Selects War For Cybertron: Siege Lancer (what a mouthful!), but also a reveal on the next exclusive coming out in the Selects line, that being Leader Class Galactic Man Shockwave! A black and grey redeco of the Transformers War For Cybertron: Siege Leader Class Shockwave, this figure is an homage to the 1985 RadioShack exclusive "Galactic Man" figure, referred to as "Shackwave" by the fans, which was a rerelease of the Korean ToyCo "Astro Magnum" out in the States. We have mirrored the reveal picture for your convenience.

Of all redecoes, Shackwave/Galactic Man is the one I expected the least to ever see.

Honestly? Shockblast from Energon, Action Master Shockwave, Shattered Glass, G1 toy Shockwave with translucent hands...

Although, out of all of those deco options, Astro Magnum was the best to go with, and the one I wanted most ;)^

I meant redeco in general. Honestly thought the Siege Shockwave mold would not see use as-is but rather retooled with a new head (and maybe a new hand) as someone else. But, even then I'm not sure what. Shockwaves are hard to redeco.

Well, there's Energon Six Shot as inspiration.
Action Master Shockwave was probably deemed too similar.

That was "Shackwave"'s official name

"Shackwave" looks "unaffiliated" from the photo. I might get it just for that.

I have one idea:

He never transformed, so the tank mode can be easily nixed and replaced with a ship mode. ;)

Meh. He never transformed, but he still very obviously had the Energon Shockblast kibble and details...

Or just retool the addons for spaceship mode to give him that "satellite" mode. I can see that working easy

For him, the altmode really doesn't matter as much as the head and deco.

This Galactic Man redeco is something which I simultaneously have no interest in purchasing while also loving it absolutely to death.
