Transformers: Legacy: Core Class Wave 2 (G2 Megatron and Shockwave)

G2 Megatron

Previous Mold Use: Kingdom Core Class Megatron

G2 Megatron looks great. He has a perfect paintjob.


Shockwave looks awesome in robot mode, except that he has a particularly ridiculous weapon. In vehicle mode he is a space ship. He does have a peg that flips down so he can actually be a gun.

Overall: This wave also included an unchanged Optimus Prime. I am really confused. Hasbro ruined Skywarp by not including his correct weapons so they could instead do the stupid combining weapon thing. Now wave 2 comes out, and no combined weapons. It was bad enough they ruin Skywarp, but to just then not do the gimmick for wave two makes it all the more egregious. Megatron is worth picking up. Shockwave is okay, but I wouldn’t call him a must have.

Thanks for reading!

I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
