    That was the problem with this figure. The battery compartment always got corroded. I think Paul5409 used to change all the internals when he modded them.

    I'm looking for the optional opaque hands and cannon. I love the stock clear hands that the first run came with, but I prefer the non clear hands and cannon.

    I was debating on getting my Quakewave having the LEDs on him switched out to a solid/constant, bright blue, if possible? What's the cost for switching out the figure's LEDs?

    hey there! Sorry for the late reply, I’ve been MIA for awhile, yes I’m definitely interested, solid hose for sure, and for the light, definitely solid color…and I figure a yellow-orange led would be most accurate?? I can also PM you if that helps! :)  thanks for reaching out though!

    NA legends shockwave has moved the character design forward. I think it is time for a new MP

    I'd be open for that. In over a decade of cohesive Masterpieces we got exactly one early and now slightly outdated 3P version, his KO and a ridiculously undersized and misproportioned MP attempt. This character deserves better.

    The official doesn't look undersized to me.

    Anyone know if this person still makes these items? I would pay a gross amount of money for these boots.

    My wife saw the official MP and refers to him as "Tiny Dancer" because she says the skinny legs make him look like some kind of ballerina or something. o_O

    I wish FT would do a 2.0 of this guy.

    For me it goes like this:

    Official “+” version > Quakeblast > Quakewave > official first release.

    I don’t even have the official “+” either. Really wish I could go back in time and get one.

    At this point I am waiting for TT to do a reissue that they’ll probably never do, or hope XTB and/or FT (2.0) will put out another one.

    If FT did, it would be a response to Cloud 9 since, as you point out, Quakeblast left Quakewave in the dust. QB set a bar that made even MP-29+ seem less desirable, and, like you, I'd love to own that one too.

    To each is own. I think TT Megs, Soundwave, Shockwave and MP52 mold look great together. Now if you replace any of those with a DS or FT version, that's when they start not to match up.

    I mean just look at those pics, in the cartoon the main decepticons were all damn near the same size as Megatron. The cartoon ignored how short the seekers and Shockwave were in the scale chart.

    We need a toon Shockwave that's as big as Acoustic Wave.

    Dude HOW do people keep calling Quakeblast a KO? It uses the same transformation and that's it. There are NO shared parts and the proportions aren't even the same so it's not like the engineering is identical either. Nobody knocked this thing off... the actual designer of Quakewave made Quakeblast as his "Shockwave 2.0" It's a DIFFERENT TOY. Saying it's a KO is like saying Energon Starscream is a KO of G2 Smokescreen.

    As a provocation to cause angry reactions. ;)  Also: nostalgia. The debate has been settled 10 years ago. I miss those golden days of the 3P scene.
