    To be honest it goes both ways, TT bias and 3P bias, and that wasn't the point I was making. From all the images we've seen so far I have a few issues with the aesthetics of this particular figure and that concerns me, I'd be saying the same regardless of whose stamp was on the box. Indeed I have issues with all the 3P attempts too. Until I have this one in hand I wont know which I prefer.

    Agreed again. Which is the point I was making is that criticisms should be valid no matter who's name is on the box. I didn't go into my issues with the 3P ones, this isn't the thread for any of those figures. And I didn't state my issues with this figure either so I'm not sure what people are getting huffy about.

    But usual feathers got ruffled though which is all that matters. Always a pleasure folks :)

    Man all of these in hand pictures are leaving me disappointed I'll have to wait a few weeks to ship mine after release as I wait for the rest of my order to come in stock. Jealous of the rest of you who'll get him sooner. Enjoy, because he looks great.

    Do we? I think Shockwave wasn't tampoed to leave people free to give him cartoon logos on arms, a regular logo on his shoulder like the comics, or a logo on his chest like the toy. Also the tampos for his alt mode are kinda in the way in bot mode so they wanted people to have the choice of them there.

    For Megatron sure they could've given him a regular logo, but for the crushed chest I bet they felt they just had to make it movie accurate, which meant a toon logo. Then it made sense to make his regular one toon accurate too.

    Hopefully the lack of a 3rd chest plate with a regular logo is a sign that we'll get a silver toy repaint down the line for those that want it - but who knows really.

    So.... IMO...

    I feel like the one in the pictures is a factory reject. I would like to see him in the blister back before he was removed. I bet this one had issues and was pulled from the line. Just a feeling I have. Could be wrong.

    Watch the video by Machineheart88, it shows Megs in his plastic clamshell right at the beginning.

    Look at MP-10. He will be repainted. Toy or comic colors, Megaplex colors, there are plenty of options.

    I said that so we'd know if the barrel was scratched on the in hand copy we've seen.

    Very nice!

    Thanks, but what's up with the No LED?

    Weird.

    Shockwave has no sounds and now Megs got no lights?

    Why can't they have both, Takara?
