    I'm not really digging the gray Astro Magnum deco. I hope they go with toy deco for a repaint instead.
    Of course, I'd buy whatever deco they go with, but would have a preference.

    Painted eye? I think that without light going through it makes him look a bit dead. I think with the painted eye, he looks a bit more alive.

    I wish Shockwave looked as good in person as he does in your pics. And that X version Scoria......

    :drool: 

    My normal Scoria looks drab now.

    To me the light piping catches even the slightest light, looks awesome even in dim light. Never looks dead or off to me unless I have my finger over the back of his head.

    I think my copy had a bit more green, denser coloring of the plastic, in the front part of the eye. Made it hard for light to get through. Plus, in my setup, there was zero light coming from behind him most of the time. Holding it in normal circumstances with a normal copy, it will be yellow.

    Example of what I think is the plastic color "mixing" issue:

    You can see the yellow popping through where the heavy green is not present.

    It's amazing how a set of stickers just obliterated my excitement for this guy. It's such a weird design choice considering how close to the cartoon these things have been lately. I get the G2 guys having stickers, because there was no 'toon precedent. But with Shockwave, it's just - odd.

    I'll get him eventually, though. Of all the Shockwaves out there, his mold is easily the most cartoon accurate.

    Have fun, all!

    This is pretty much the same for me. For me where he is not much light. And the light doesn't come through real like I would like. And does come off somewhat green. Which I don't like. So that's why I painted mine. I like it enough to make it permanent. For just make him more alive to my eye's and brain.

    Stickers Obliterated your excitement? Wow.
    People's standards are too damn high, and this is a great figure in hand.

    Oh, my standards are definitely way too high. I've never shied away from that fact :D  He does look like a great figure in hand - like I said, I'll eventually get him - it just seems like such a weird design choice, when everything else about him is pretty much perfect.

    But hey, I get that other people are excited. I was, too.

    Have fun, all!
