MP-1 at the back yo!
*Edit* whoops posted in the wrong thread
...who's the little guy standing behind MP-10's shoulder; is that THS-02?..
Has anyone got pics of MP-36+ alongside MP-10 YOTH?
I think they might compliment each other really well in a display!
Lemme swing this back to MP 29+ Shockwave for a minute....
Transforming the other day the piece holding the cable into his back came out. I panicked, but it plugged right back in. Looks like it just came loose from being glued in, and didn't actually break off. I haven't reglued it, since it just went back in. Just a heads up for everyone.
Also, the back of his head seemed to be kind of scratched up, like little micro-scratches from transforming. If you're the type that freaks out about tiny paint imperfections, maybe don't ever transform this guy.
Despite all this, I still quite like this toy.
...i believe the original MP-29's cable/spring is a competely removeable accessory; i haven't opened my new one yet...
He means the actual spring came off from the little plug that it’s glued onto. I think the same thing happened to my original 29. I also freaked out but it all went back together
I should have just posted a pic in the first place, to be clearer...here's what happened to mine:
Pardon the crap pics...I was just going for speed here.
So the gun barrel really doesn't line up, correct? Like every picture looks like it's pointed out and pointed slightly down. The KK video said that too . I would've thought they'd change something to make that line up right.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a paint match on shockwave grey paint color? The ears are all chipped on mine after transforming
Wow, how many times have you transformed him? I only want to transform him about once or twice then just display him. I'm almost done building my display cabinet and my MP-29+ should arrive tomorrow or a day later, hope he's a fine addition to my MP-13 - once I've opened that guy up too...
Has anyone figure out a way to get the barrel on mp-36+ to fit closer to his waist? That slide stop lever just gets in the way.
That's what I was talking about. It's a pretty bad oversight to not fix that.
I think I might make a tab slot for it to peg into. It would be covered by the silence in gunmode.
I know the barrel has the slight swivel and that helps some but it definitely doesn't sit correctly.
Got MP29+ yesterday. Taking it out of the the box it looks gorgeous! That deep rich purple really pops. Then I put it with my S1/S2 Decepticons it just doesn't feel right. I actually prefer MP29 with my Decepticons. The lavender colour just feels right, like from the cartoon. MP29+ though will be my comic-book Shockwave. Just because of Issue #5 I'm keeping this bot. It's that good looking.
I got my Shockwave today, I opened the box but I will take him completely out once I've built my display cabinet. Just looking at him from packaging the paint looks absolutely gorgeous, I still wish the hands were more pink like the promo images but oh well that's just my preference. I see a few paint chips but that's only on the barrel of the gun which is common also I didn't think a $200 toy would be pretty small then again it's my entry into G1 Masterpiece.
Same choice of words my friend haha, was about to post it then I saw a new message popped up. Yeah I also felt the same way when I saw this guy standing next to the other cons in images, the lavender fits with them better IMO but the deep rich purple really makes him stand out from the rest so I chose to go with MP29+ because of that and because I remember Shockwave from the cartoons being a dark purple rather than lavender. His colours were really inconsistent but for me MP-29+ is my cartoon Shockwave.
More Megatron, now with sword
