Buy 5* Shockwave with chips?

I'm relatively new to the game (only been playing a few months). I have one 5* - G1 Megatron. I just got 1,000,000 bot chips, and am wondering if I should buy the 5* Shockwave that's available now or hold out for something else? He's got good synergy with G1 Megatron, but my play style lends itself more to Tantrum and Cheetor (my go-to 4*s). Other maxed 4*s in my roster are Megatronus, Scorponok, Optimus Primal, and Blaster.

Any input is welcome.

    He’ll go perfectly with your GS Megatron, you have to get shockwave!

    Tantrum is coming next month so there's that.

    Not only does Shockwave pair with G1Megs, he also act as a power rate boost for all your 4*s. I think he's worthwhile, although you can draw him from normal 5* pulls.

    I popped another 5* tech awakening from this month's 29 reward and awakened my r4 Shocky. He's the only choice against that Galvatron.

    How do you guys know that Tantrum is coming next month? Is it published somewhere?

    No. But we'll know tomorrow in the arena.

  • Do you forget he is in the crystal already? Some other tech sharkticon dude bought his with chips, opened a 5 star and got another shockboy. If you have enough shards, do not buy him

    Just because he's in the standard crystal doesn't mean a whole lot. I've opened 32 standard 5* crystals. Can you guess how many times I've pulled shockwave?

    That’s a bot worth 1 million, I wouldn’t think twice about buying.

    It sucks that I have to agree with you on this

    But I'd go with the majority just this once. I suggest waiting for the Reforged announcement and buy Shockwave on the final day if the June featured bots don't interest me.

    Just realized that the bot arenas started today where we'll get our featured bot teams. No wonder they were willing to toss out that hint the other day.

    The way I see it you have a chance of getting shockwave from normal crystals, so I wouldn't bother

    Thanks for all the input. I'm going to hold out for Tantrum. His 3* and 4* have carried me most of the game so far, so why ruin a good thing.
