Shockwave (Shattered Glass)
Shockwave is a fictional character from the Transformers series.
Shockwave is a Decepticon whose skills are at relations between organisms, working as the ambassador between Earth and the Decepticons, along with his aide Fistfight. Calm, wizened, he's intelligent and patient, though no scientist. Like most Decepticons, he's more than willing to put his life on the line to save humans. Although his fighting techniques are entirely defensive, he's more than capable of putting a hole through any Autobot.
In his alternate identity, Longarm, he is an Autotrooper officer. He was always kind of a wet blanket, but recently he's been acting really strangely and disappearing for long stretches of time without explanation. He's even started saying stuff like "Interrogative" and "Conclusion" before his sentences.
Shockwave's ability to disguise himself as Longarm is an homage to Transformers Animated Shockwave, who infiltrated the Autobot ranks as Longarm Prime. Longarm is a disguised Shockwave, but which Shockwave is still unrevealed.
After mistaking Cliffjumper for his universe's Cliffjumper, Megatron mistakenly believed that his time in the Rad Zone had damaged his circuitry, and noted that perhaps they should have Shockwave take a look at him.
When the Decepticons got a two-way Stellar Spanner going between Earth and Cybertron, Megatron assigned Shockwave to Earth as an ambassador. Shockwave arrived at the base on Earth and was greeted by Starscream and Professor Arkeville. He was particularly interested in talking to Cliffjumper, and hearing more about Primus. Shockwave attended the unveiling of the Mega-Rig, aiming to meet R.J. Blackrock and Senator Shore. When a group of Autobots attacked the ceremony, Shockwave acted only in defense. The human Sephie Beller came under threat from Seaspray, and Shockwave acted quickly, taking the missile which would surely have killed her.
Though he was seriously damaged, he survived and was taken back to base for repairs. Sephie blamed herself for his injuries and got herself upgraded with Cybertronian technology. Though the other Decepticons didn't approve of it, Starscream's scans of her tech provided several vital tips to boost Shockwave's self-repair, saving his life. He was soon on his feet, albeit unsteadily, and greeted Sephie when the Decepticons brought her back to base.
- Timelines Deluxe Longarm (2012)
- Shattered Glass Longarm is a remold of Transformers: Reveal the Shield Jazz, available only at the BotCon 2012 customization classes. He transforms from a robot into a purple sports car. The speakers can also combine with his rifle via clips to form a super rifle, or they can be used on any other clip-compatible Transformers toy. Longarm also comes with an alternate Shockwave head and gun arm, which one can use instead of the proper head and hand. The head can fit during transformation if properly sanded, but the gun cannot. Neither new piece is considered Hasbro product. This mold was also used to make Transformers United Stepper, and the mold's alternate head was used to make Treadshot. It was also retooled to make Transformers: Generations Wheelie and Transformers: Timelines Kick-Over.
