    Weird. Maybe this was based on older information? Still, annoying that they would be falsely advertising like this...

    Yeah...sounds like they've got him mixed up with some of the 3rd party MP-style Shockwaves like Quakeblast and Quakewave, they have these features.

    Just got Shockwave and .... his eye is orange?????

    Maybe some third party can come to the rescue with a new eye that is solid yellow. Also maybe a black hose?

    If hes in China or Japan he probably got a review copy or... maybe hes already out there? They have been known to get stuff before people here at times. Idk.

    I haven't bough a TFs in years, and despite Sockwave being of of my favourite, I skipped the original release as I was a bit letdown by the more lavender colour of the original. But I really wanted this version, even if I'm not actively collecting anymore. So I ordered it when it was announced and finally got my first TFs in like 4 years!

    It wouldn't be hard to make a replacement yellow piece. The orange was chosen to negate the green effect that was happening with the yellow mixing with the blue/purple. It works a little bit, but sometimes it does look straight up orange. I know @onnsake painted the eye of his copy yellow, but I do like the translucent effect of the eye.

    Shadow Fisher made a light-up head for MP-29, if they still exist maybe they'll do another for 29+.

    Yeah maybe you're right. Kapow say they're getting their stock on December 17th, which is a bit earlier than anticipated, so I guess this guy has been ready for a while. We'll know by the date stamps on him when he arrives.


    That's a good while without buying a single TF! And what a TF to end the drought - welcome back :thumb

    Thanks! Liking him a lot so far! Still have a few Masterpieces that I would need to catch up what I missed (or more like skipped voluntarily), but this one plus the upcoming Hound itches my need of more TFs :D

    He's so beautiful, I can't stop staring at him. And unlike most MPs he's easy to play with and transform too! Just be careful in positioning the bits of his big gun barrel when you clip the backpack over it.
