BT-13 Laserwave released

But if Hasbro can call Shockblast 'Shkwav' or whatever was on the plate, why can't Takara simply do the same??? Unlike with the Windcharger/Overdrive difference, Shockblast and Laserwave are supposed to be the same character. Quite disappointed about this as I only collect BTs and shockwave is one of my favourite characters. Lwave = lame-wave. (as far as the plate's concerned)

Did you not notice what was written on the license plate of your "Sideswipe"?

 

Shockblast = Hasbro couldn't call him Shockwave for whatever copyright reason. They compensated by putting SHKWAV on the license plate as a little gift to the fans.

 

Laserwave = Shockwave's Japanese name ever since G1, just like Prime is "Convoy".

I think I know where bluestreak1701 is coming from:  BT Lambor's plate reads "SIDESWP"

Jet thrusters for flying and long range, *interplanetary* vision?

WTF?!

 

:clap

 

And 5 holographic versions?! I'm getting the BT version, but damn, I might have to get a couple of Alt versions to use as holographs!

/playing right into HasTak's hands... :lol

 

 

edit: So he is the new leader... that's cool! When in the hell are the bots gonna get thier leader?! MP-Prime isn't in the story....

 

Thanks Nevermore for whatever part you played in this!

Interesting story so far. Does it actually say that his gun can be mounted on his gun arm, or am I missing something?

 

EDIT - Wow, I never thought of putting it there. Cool! I have him with his two guns on one hand and Grimmy's sword in the other. He's armed to the teeth!

Weird.  Why the name change?

 

There's no "name change" as far as Takara is concerned. For the same reason, earlier releases were named "Lambor" and "Streak".

 

Gotcha ... thanks and thanks MasterOfPuppets ... I figured that was the case.  I knew the other original Takara names, but Laserwave escaped me.
