Series: Eight (1989)
Shockwave (v2) - also commonly known as Night Force Shockwave - was released carded as part of the eighth series (1989) in a Toys R Us exclusive Night Force two-pack with Lightfoot (v2).
In 1993, Shockwave was packaged in the Rapid Deployment Force, exclusively as a mail-in offer from Hasbro Direct. It also came with Fast Draw and Repeater (v2).
The set included the three figures individually bagged with a black figure stand, a bag of three weapons and three more black figure stands, and a black belt carrying case.
Shockwave came with a black sub-machine gun, a black pistol, a black knife, and a black backpack.

Shockwave was reissued in the Rapid Deployment Force in 1993 with Fast Draw and Repeater (v2). This set included a bag of weapons that did not belong to any one figure. The bag contained a gold submachine gun, a black sniper's rifle, a black rifle, and six black figure stands.
The black sniper's rifle was originally available with Low-Light (1986) and the black rifle was originally available with Hit & Run (1988). The same gold submachine gun was available with Dee-Jay (v2) (1993).
Night Force Shockwave's entire body was originally used to create the original Shockwave.
Versions of Shockwave
In 2008, Shockwave was renamed "Shockblast." So while there are multiple names, they are all based on the character "Shockwave."
