picked up Prime Sergeant Kup this afternoon, not a figure I was too fussed about getting as I have Ironhide sitting in a pol but he is actually a decent little figure. Looking forward to getting Ironhide now so I can do a weapon swap.

It looks like the best Shockwave since G1, so really tempted. It looks pretty solid but the QC would have to hold up.

Yeah, I'm with you. As a massive Shockwave fan was drooling when first saw it but now nit-picking has started and the hose and legs are bugging me. Want to see more of it first, it looks fab next to MP10, a bit skinny but don't mind that to much.

i was excited of the thought of it until i see it and had a good look at it , in all honesty going by how good fanstoys soundwave looked this was pretty much underwhelming and its all to do with the legs hose and alt mode

I am not really bothered by FT Shockwave. I have very little interest in figures that try to pretend to be the G1 figure. Its why I am less enthusiastic about MP Soundwave. I like my new figures to be a different perspective on the character, or a new transformation, or bring something extra of the character. I am not knocking it as an effort, as I know that a lot of people want exactly this, its just not what I look for.

I'm not sure about FansToys Shockwave. It looks like a great figure but I've never bought third party TF's so I'm a little wary about the quality.

Im up for shockers,
I totally get the whole "yeah he looks great" at first, then the "wait a min, what's up with the legs" response after looking at the picture for a few mins,

The hose problem is just people being panicky over what seems like a simple solution,
The legs are abit meh but i can live with it no probs,
The good thing about fantoys is there actually listening to criticism and feedback,
I know the first released pic looked blue, but if they say he's gonna be toon purple with a yellow eye, that's good enough for me,
I would rather have a mp shocky in my collection now'ish then wait for takara, because it still might be a few years away,
And if takara do decide to do a shocky and he genuinely looks better then its a simple upgrade,
If not, id be really happy with fantoys version,
Has a pic of him with mp10 been Released? The thin comment has me intrigue
wanted -- fansproject defender steelcore, last chance, down force, dia commander, protector, shadow commander, bruticus,
