Does the color of the feet look different to anybody else?
What's wrong with the original thighs?
Shoot, you're right. Those would have been easy to replace too- they're just covers over the actual joint held by a screw.
@Markatron the hip pieces of the thighs are reused from ROTF Megatron, they are inaccurate to Shockwave. They should be bulky curved pieces similar to the rest of the thighs.
Hmm, I may give DNA Design another chance after their last stinkers of upgrade sets.
There's the Shockwave Labs kit for that. However, I wouldn't recommend it. They still haven't done a single LED kit properly yet. Their LEDs are bare and blinding.
God bless DNA Designs, this fixes all of the problems I had with Shockwave. Can't wait for this kit!
Actually makes figure much more better from originally is
I wonder how heavy the gun arm is?
My Shockwave can’t hold his arm out with the original gun, so no chance if this is heavier
So no preorders are up?
DNA is....weird. When they're good, they're really good. When they're bad, they're immensity frustrating and sometimes unusable without significant modifications.
Had to say which category this will fall into, but unlike some of their kits it's just straight replacement parts. There's no crazy engineering or (major) added features, so it will probably be okay?
There is no rescuing SS Shockwave. It's a turd that can't be polished.
Missed the blue text buddy
Now this is more like it. No breaking or assembly required. Just pop off the old part, and pop on the new part. Im always willing to pay more for that option. On removing the hose, does it pop out easy ? Im handling it now and I feel resistance like if it wasnt meant to be removed.
The hose should come off relatively easily, but if you’re really worried about it breaking, you can use a heat gun or hair dryer to soften it before removal.
I was waiting for this
The gun, blade and pose-able hands are awesome! But I wish they added more stuff like :
ABS Pieces that replace the rubbery spike on the foot
I remove mine quiet often. Just don’t pull it off awkwardly and you’ll be fine...
This is the first kit they've done that is a must have for me.
And here I bought the shockwave lab blade cause that was the only thing I disliked about the figure, guess shockwave will have 2 arm blades now.
Nice, I’ll probably get this.
