Golden condor and lion version? Griffin level? I can dig it?
If they don't go the omega route or the last autobot (which looks like it might be Hasbro's plan) I'd say it should be Optimus
Purple and other paint apps look alright, but what's with the HORRENDOUS grey? It looks like a mainline leader from the generations line a few years back. Its ugly AF.
It looks pretty nice with a good transformation, good price also. I expected it cost much higher as their little OP was quite expensive for its size.
However the joints in the reviews seem a bit loose in so many places. Especially I'm quite worried for the back and the feet. Hopefully there will be a English review soon.
Some screenshots from the review (previous page)
The eye lights up RED? That's like a deal-killing choice. "Hey yeah, that guy whose entire look and character is defined by having a blinking yellow light for a face? Let's make it red".
I wish Lewin resources or whatever they were called would make a 3 ft version of this....ship it in alt mode so I’d never have to transform it!
I've not watched the video but if it helps when I look at the screenshots while there is a reddish rim around the light the light itself looks more yellow to me - it's possible the red rim is a visual artifact due to brightness of the LED as I gather most these third party things with LEDs have LEDs with the brightness of a thousand suns - certainly on the straight on shot anyway, it does look redder on the 3/4 view shot...
That's actually a pretty clean bot mode given what it transforms into. Always impressive when these smaller companies manage to present a tidier figure than the big boys. Obviously, the bot mode is kind of boxy and generic, and not really MP in detail or finish but still, it's a nice clean figure, that's recognisable as Shockwave in bot mode, and is bang on for the Nemesis in alt. I mean, rose-coloured FT Fanboyism aside, he's about as accurate to the character as Quackwave is.
I'll probably pick up one of these to go on my shelf as a Nemesis model and never bother to put it into bot mode. There's plenty of listings for it on TaoBao, but no final price guide yet, so I'll be curious to see what the final price is. I doubt any of the major retailers will be close to the 580 CNY price mentioned on Weibo, but the TaoBao sellers should be close to that.
I'm down to have this as an MP Shockwave since its far more interesting than the traditional alt mode. I'd prefer the silver legs/arms or at least a darker gray but the more toned/matte coloring is growing on me.
I need to convince me that I dont need another MP Shockwave....
Of course you dont need another mo shockwave !
But dont you need a revenge starship ?
Joke aside, I for one will take it only for the altmode. I couldnt care less about the bot mode. I just hope some one will do the nemesis and lost light down the line.
Hellooooooooo theeereeeeeeeeeeee....I am trying to find excuses not to dish another 80+$$ down the drain and you ARE NOT helping......
Well you clearly came to wrong place.
If you knew the stuff I bought because spend too much time in this site
I'm with you on this. I hope more Shockwave's in the future turn into a ship.
This will my Legends Shockwave
If you're not getting him for the Shockwave, 60-70 of those dollars will be features you don't care about.
Methinks you've picked the wrong hobby
For me it’s easy to decide whether to buy it. Will it be expensive for what it is, or will it be a surprisingly decent price. Because this doesn’t look good enough to be $100+. Not with the Hasbro grey they used with sparse paint apps.
