Via Weibo user 淘宝店变形金刚改造工厂 we have our first stock images of Cyber Batallion Shockwave to share for all of you.
We had reported the release of Cyber Batallion Shockwave and Sideswipe in Taiwan recently. Shockwave got the attention of fans for his great robot mode, very G1 accurate. Then, Weibo user NOTRAB posted a good-looking in hand image of Transformers Cyber Battalion Shockwave.
Fans were a little disappointed to realize the lack of knee joints and bicep swivels, and the hollowness of the toy. We should remember this is a toy planned to be economic, big and simple. The robot mode sure looks nice and great for display and photographic purposes, and that is the strong point of this line. The new stock images reveal a different shade of purple compared to the in-hand images we had seen before.
As an extra bonus, we have a great complete packaging art of Cyber Batallion Sideswipe for your viewing pleasure.
You can check out the mirrored image after the jump and then let us know your impressions at the 2005 Boards!
