    That's probably the reason. ;) 

    TBH, money isn't so much the issue, but it's the space for Shock/Laserwave on MP shelf and wondering if this is worthy enough swap for lighter shade cartoon accuracy vs just a sexier shade of purple cartoon accuracy.

    Lol! That’s the first thing I pointed out to my kids. He and Ironhide should pose together . . .

    Judging from the difference between his legs and the hammer halves on the back of them, it looks like his thighs are silver paint rather than chrome.

    Probably for the best, considering how the fold in on themselves.

    Your observation is correct. I discovered this while pouring over the stock images looking carefully for tampos. I believe this figure will look pretty stellar in hand. Are you getting both megs and Shockwave Sam?

    Yes I am. I actually put in two pre-orders for 29+, I love Shockwave that much! And I plan to swap the chest piece and hands with my original 29 for one of them, as the hand colour of 29 are quite toon accurate as well (the character art for Shockwave that 29 is based on also has pinkier hands than he came with). That way I'll have three slightly different versions of Shockwave :thumb 

    Need to get in the pre-order for 36+, but I'll definitely be getting him. He'll go nicely with my yellow-eyed MP-10 (and even nicer with an eventual OP3+), and he scratches that itch of the G1 toy I never got.

    Plus, as nice as BW Megatron and Dinobot look, or as tempting as the Primal reissue are for me to jump in on the BW train, I'd rather put the money towards the releases that really get my nostalgia going. I really enjoyed watching Beast Wars for the first time recently, but a release like 36+ has to come first. Especially what it could mean for future + repaints (I'd love both a true-to-toon Jazz and a toy-accurate + repaint too).

    Agree with this. An eventual V3+ will be very cool to have.

    Hopefully you’ll get around to getting BW Megs in the next 4-5 months too. Luckily a small silver lining is that he’s the largest ‘bite to swallow’ in the line. Nothing else should hurt the wallet so much. Lol luckily

    I don't foresee any BW MPs in the near future, unless they announce Rattrap who was a personal favourite of mine, the little asshole!

    If BW was my G1 then I'd happily pay the price for that epic Megatron, but I'd rather keep my money for two copies of Optimus Prime instead ;) 


    I know earlier in the thread people were arguing over which toy this was supposed to represent, I don't know if anyone mentioned that it says it on the TT website - it's the 16S release:

    Thanks for posting pictures guys!

    I’m really tempted by MP36+, he will be my Marvel G1 Megatron!

    I dunno, that's the shade of purple he was on my TV/VHS tapes. Contrast/hue be damned (i'm not hip on technical terms).

    Looking freakin' great!

    I wonder if this Shockwave will have more than like 3 paint apps.

    The faction symbols seem to be tampoe’d also. This is amazing.

    It is one of the things I hated and still hate about the vanilla version.

    No MP should require faction stickers, ever.

    The whole Ratchet deal, I understand. Keep it optional.

    But not the fucking faction symbol. I don’t need, nor want the option.

    Hell yes to that colour. Neither of the MPs in the last shot are brand new, but I can't wait to have them both on my shelf in that form by the end of the year. The Prowl and Shockwave of my childhood (and adulthood) dreams ;)
