    Well apparently "I" lost my solid colored hand that it took forever for me to find for sale and I doubt if I'll ever find another one. Great.

    That doesn’t sound great at all.

    Awesome recap of Marvel’s Shockwave’s curriculum! but don’t forget he also gave the Dinobots some real hard time in the Savage Land. Quakeblast really captured that Shockwave for me, so he was a must in my collection.

    I remember discovering cartoon Shockwave long after the Marvel Comics version, and I was surprised/disappointed that he was such a ‘lapdog’ as you so well defined him

    It's obvious which take "took," as it were,
    since in IDW recently wrapped continuity he ended up being the Big Bad to End All Big Bads.

    Here's something interesting. Putting the solid hand on a newer release of the figure...there's a tab on the flap that opens to hide the hand. On the clear hand that came off, there's a slot. On the solid hand, there isn't one. Anybody with a 1st or 2nd release can confirm if the arm flap has a tab? 15474168197574426299779648510866.jpg 1547416955908628975709837319888.jpg

    Awesome! That’s a big hand! Pun not intended. Now I need to find a hand in relative and figure out how to make it swapable.

    The mushroom is on the hand itself and most of the others have the mushroom on the arm. Good luck.

    Of note...under lights the purple hand is not the same color as the bot. I'm glad because I thought they'd be the same .

    Damn. Maybe I’ll leave that for a while. I don’t really need a shockwave anyway.

    I can't remember which thread it was in but it seems to be that @songrobin had a tutorial for making pegs for hands like that.

    Ya I got scammed too on Ebay (same thing, prowl launcher). Got my cash back. Then just got this guy today from a more reputable seller. He is epic by the way. Absolutely worth the money.

    Too bad Cloud 9 was just a one off for this guy !!!
    QB turned out to be a great figure !!
    If only they made other figures in their G1 toy/toon aesthetics !!

    It’s weird how close the Gigapower boxes and the Cloud 9 box is in regard to logos and icons.

    It's almost a known fact that those two are one in the same.
    Still, the easiest way to see is when you look at QB hands next to any of the giga Dino's,you sees they are practically the same hands.
