    Who would you want to make it?
    What must it have/do? and anything else you want from it.

    For me it would need to have bulky legs and be bigger than MP starscream but not by much. I would also want either fanstoys to make it using the G1 toy as the base or a completely new toy made by justitoys or a similar company.

    I would need for him to look like the picture in your sig. LOL. It's like all MPs, they need to look like their Cartoon Counterpart with a wink wink to the Original toy.

    I would want it to be completely cartoon accurate in robot mode, even if it meant sacrifising some of its... *snort* realism in Giant-Space-Lazer mode. *guffaw*

    I'd only want it if it fits to classics scale.

    Then you wouldn't want a MP you would want a Voyager Classics Shockwave.

    Well, to be fair, MP-10 can fit into classics if its the size of Faith Leader, and MP-08 is what I use as classics grimlock.

    Something that's the equivalent of that new Soundwave. Basically, a cross between toon accuracy and MP toy engineering.

    Honestly, the G1 toy holds up pretty well today. I'd base the designs on that template and add the necessary design cues from the MP line.

    The guys who are doing MP Soundwave and Blaster said they will be trying to do Shockwave if their first two releases sell well.

    Just passing along what I read in the MP Soundwave thread.

    I do want a Classics Voyager Shockwave too though.

    MP-10 is larger than faith leader by a very fair margin, and comes with a giant trailer.

    MP Shockwave needs to be at least as big as MP SS

    Why would it have to be 3rd pary? I'd rather have an official, licensed and realistically-priced Hasbro/Takara MP release in scale with the Seekers and Grimlock. Somewhere in the $60 - 150 range would be acceptable.
    Just because they haven't done it yet doesn't mean they won't. I can wait and save my pennies rather than dump a huge lump sum (i.e. a car payment) on something unofficial.

    IF Has/Tak did it, I'd prefer a space cannon that uses logic (no pun intended). Give it fold-up booster rockets or stabilizers. Also, a simple light-up mechanism would be nice. No cheesy sound effects to add speaker clutter to the figure.

    Or, if all else fails, a Hasbro Classics scaled voyager or (larger) deluxe based on War Within or War for Cybertron. I'd be happy with these, as long as they didn't use the atrocity that is Energon Shockblast again.

    I am with you on this. Here is my MP Shelf for the Decepticons:
    [​IMG]

    What I will be doing is:
    - Replace the Custom Sound Wave with the new MP one
    - I need to update this pic as I now have a custom TC in the collection, so that is a check
    - Hercules will be my MP Devastator
    - At Hercules feet I will use the PE Reflector as I think it will work size wise
    - If a MP Shockwave is ever made, it will replace the KO Shockwave I have here
    - Not sure what I will do about the Insecticons. I may have to just step up and customize a MP set out of the KO oversized ones.

    Made by iGear using the same aesthetic they've used for Ironhide, Ratchet & the Minibots.

    Yeah, two lazerbeaks. I gotta get a buzzsaw to replace that lazerbeak. I am going with buzzsaw is going as lazerbeak for holloween.

    Actually, in my new display, I was able to make him smaller. I moved him all the way to the back of the case, put Soundwave in the middle and the cassettes in front of him. Using the risers and the depth, he looks ok. But your right it would be nice if he was smaller too.

    The display you got there is real nice too. At the end of the day, all my figures really end up being statues which is kind of funny if you think about it.

    As for 3rd Party, I love em. Seems like they are the only ones that want to step up. It's just up to us to reward them for doing it.

    I would want it to make the same electronic sounds as its g1 counterpart, and the tip would have to light up with a nice bright led light.

    hasbro/takara lost my faith when they went and made a new leader class optimus prime mold instead of going on an creating new MP characters. expect a new mold megatron to fit with the new mold optimus soon...

    were still waiting for a voyager "classics" as well. i hope to see that from hasbro soon. but 3rd party will get my money if hasbro doesnt want it. just like tfc is getting my money (for hercules) because they are making what hasbro wont.
