Shockwave is a small figure in Combiner Wars series.
This is a collector card which comes with the figure (front and back).
It seems like robot with mono-eye became an iconic design for Shockwave.
For colour scheme, purple matches very well with pink and grey.
The figure can hold a lot of great poses due to its good articulation.
Those pink transparent parts really enhance the appearance of the figure.
In vehicle mode, Shockwave looks like a spacecraft.
It also acts as a weapon which can be used by most voyager class transformer figures.

I love the overall design of the outfit and helmet of the character.
I can also find my favourite colour scheme here - Black and Red :)
The helmet is very well sculpted and replicated. The weathering is good and nice paint job done on the surface.
There are lots of fine details on the back of the outfit too.
The four Pym Particle vials can be easily inserted into the compartments of the silver belt.
Closer view of the gloved hand with "a red button" ready to shrink or enlarge the body size.
Although the outfit restricts the overall articulation, it still looks great in stitching and tailoring.
You can remove the face plate and place it over the forehead to reveal the face of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in the film Ant-Man.
Perfect likeness of the head sculpt with life-like expression this time...
The light from the helmet is not bright and it only lasts for a few seconds. Please click here if you want to see its packaging.

The armour looks cool but you are only able to see Vader's eyes from the top.
The armour is also well replicated. It is made of hard plastic and it fits the figure.
I do not know if the head sculpt captures the likeness of the real Vader as he is always on mask.
You need to use a hair dryer to soften the stiff mask before putting it on the figure.
Closer view of the unmasked Vader...
It is Vader Time with his powerful punches.
Overall, the figure set is value for money as it comes with a coolest looking armour and mask.
