    So great seeing so much Shockwave appreciation lately! My second favorite Decepticon MP after Megatron for sure. He seems like one of those that got a real mixed reception upon release but I've seen a lot of owners who were lukewarm to him at first say he ended up one of their favorites.

    I seriously doubt it. I've preordered, and I do hope so, but I think the chances are slim to nil. However, I've never cared for Megs alt mode (I'm ok with tank Megs - I even prefer it), so I won't transform him.

    In this photo his chin looks slightly darker - could be just the lighting though

    Yeah, hard to tell but if that piece was grey and those little sections on the sides of his hips were white, the AKOM deco would be spot on. I love the coloring of the boots, though, what @Emperor Bruticus IV called out as the first cell shading effect in the line. Something I like that TT did in this stock photo is bend the leg where the thigh meets the knee. Looks a bit better, more natural, than when it's bent where the knee meets the lower leg.

    Yes I noticed that knee bend! It does look good, although usually when I posed Hot Rod I went half and half with both knee joints. It's nice to have the option though. I'm looking forward to having MP-40 just to be able to mess around with this mould again (I feel like I hardly ever touched MP-28, so put off by the fear of chrome wear and the loose ab crunch - such a shame!).

    The cell shading is definitely nice, and I like how the rest of the boot is closer to black than MP-28's.

    I also really like the all-yellow spoiler on MP-40. I think it gets a lot of things right, now that I've had time to look at it. I'll be so tempted to paint Firebolt's face red when I get him I should really be buying two!

    Why do TT insist on posing this figure as terribly as fucking possible? That shot is so unflattering it baffles me.

    Hey, at least he's transformed correctly! If it were a Hasbro picture, his arms wouldn't have been turned around and his spoiler would be pointing down!

    He actually isn't, one of his orange shoulder flaps isn't down all the way.

    Like shit man, the weird angle of the pelvis and the awkwardly bent knee mak it look like someone who's never handled an action figure posed it.

    Great shot...amazing scale with the little guys and Jetfire in the back.

    Where are the little guys (Spike and his dad) from?

    While defending everyone heroically, little did Ironhide know that Optimus had already put in the order to have him replaced...by an oversized KO from the planet Weijiangatron.

    Cheers. The DR Wu figure set. I think they did a new version recently without helmets.
