Shockwave Leader Transformers Siege WFC-S14

Part of the first wave of Siege Leader Class figures, Shockwave is a heavily G1-inspired Voyager-sized robot that can assume a small Leader-sized super robot mode with four arms by combining with armour consisting of two shoulder pads, two platform boot pieces, and a backpack. These pieces are compatible with the C.O.M.B.A.T. System, and can be placed in many configurations on his body, but there are only two official ones. Shockwave features multiple hardpoints all over himself and his weapons (such as his cannon arm now called the “LV-1 Thermal Range Neuron Beam”) to accommodate “Fire Blasts” from the Battle Masters assortment, which can be used to simulate blaster fire or explosions. Like other figures in the same line, Shockwave features “battle damage” paint. Unlike the others, however, the only paint applied to the primary figure is found on his feet, while a great deal has been applied to the armour pieces instead. The figure also features two light-piping effects, one for the eye in robot mode and another for the bridge in spaceship mode.

Shockwave transforms into a spaceship resembling an upside-down laser gun. His armour pieces can also combine with this mode, augmenting it into a Cybertronian spacecraft not entirely dissimilar to the shape and details of another Shockwave’s pre-Earth mode, itself a callback to the 1985 ray-gun. The armour pieces can combine to form a hovercraft the figure can stand on as well.
