    I bought this guy caused by a non-sensical rush at a local second page from my country.
    I had my doubts. Even the videos about this didn't convince me that much, but after seing the photos here Im 100% convinced that I want it.
    Cannot wait for its arrival this christmas. Thanks btw. (The videos about it are pretty great to be fair, but the pictures shared here are what convinced me).

    Today I finally opened and removed both batteries on my Quakewave bought used 1 year ago.
    I was very afraid that batteries could have already deteriorated and having melted something inside but both were still perfect,What a relief, but if I hadn't processed, at 100% in some future, they could have destroyed plastic and in worst case,seeing those toxic substances falling from Shockwave just as Blot in his bio, is not safe.
    Surgeon :D  has been very easy luckily and for chest and head has aged very well but I'm saddened that just for using very softly a thin screwdriver to lift piece on arm, it had already brought a tiny but deep stress mark on shorter section of it near you insert screw.
    At least is just outside and barely visible and screw section was still intact but I thought that plastic there would be stronger comparing it to strong plastic of body.That screwdriver is very similar to items watched in videos,maybe his metal can damage anyway some thin plastic.

    I still see that here and there, but not Cloud 9's W01-C version. Does anyone still have that one available?

    WOOOOO I found a brand new non pre owned toy version of quakewave available at 140 usd, here I thought the only ones available would be the overpriced eBay pre owned ones. Even better it’s my preferred toy colour version of shockwave. This is kinda like those scientists finding that prehistoric extinct fish washed up on the shores lol. kudos to robottoybase, too bad it’s out of stock now but thankfully I got one in time

    Apparently they have the clear version of shockwave in stock but it’ll cost an arm and a leg 200 eur but still options for anyone looking for transparent quakewave

    It seems all stock of Quakeblast dried up all of a sudden last year, which is a shame because I put off getting him and now I can't. I feel like there are things he does better than Quake Wave and vice versa, though I'd probably settle for either at this point.

    Oops I thought u meant quakewave since you posted it in this thread

    Anyways ever since cloud 9 received issues from fanstoys about their quakeblast being a copy of quakewave they pretty much stopped production long ago. Means sadly you won’t be able to find qb anymore no retailers carry it

    I actually said Quakeblast in the post you replied to. (No worries, I won't lol you) ;) 

    Well, in comparison videos I've seen, QB edged out QW for me, and the clear version just captured me. I'd like both of those QB colors (maybe not black), really.

    I wish someone would find some stock and price it with a heart. :)
