    【タカラトミーモール限定】トランスフォーマー マスターピース MP-29+ 防衛参謀 レーザーウェーブ

    The Destron executive `` Laser Wave '' who leaves the absence of Megatron in the masterpiece series is an anime color version and appears as a Takara Tomy Mall limited item!

    Destron executives are now available in anime color! Executives leaving the absence of Megatron's mother star Sabertron! A popular character drawn as an ambitious person who turns the counter flag against Megatron in the first variant of a gun with one arm and an overseas comic. The ultimate laser wave with a characteristic optical gimmick! !

    Inserting an optional battery illuminates the arm of the robot and the muzzle of the SF gun mode. In SF gun mode, the size that a person can hold and the muzzle glows purple by pulling the trigger. After the pattern is turned on by switching the switch on the side, it automatically turns off at a fixed time.
    In robot mode, pressing the switch on the side of the arm automatically turns off the laser on the left arm automatically after a certain period of time. The old toy can be transformed without removing the muzzle that was removable at the time of transformation. In addition, a stand to decorate with SF gun form is also included, and it can be closer to the shape of the animation setting by deforming the stand and attaching it to the backpack. Each joint has a clutch, so you can decorate it with free poses. Die-casting is used for each part, and coil springs are used for the left arm cable. A number of replacement wrists are also included, making it an impressive salute pose and a transparent fist of the old toy image. (Transparent movable fist left and right included) Comes with a laser wave type hand gun that appeared in the play. By rotating the tip from the elbow, you can change to the respect mode (old toy shape) where the cable grows from the front of the arm.

    More faithful reproduction of anime colors at the time!

    “Battle!” Broadcasted in Japan in 1985. "Super Robot Lifeform Transformers" reappears in the anime color that reproduces the figure in the play! The body color is changed to dark purple symbolizing Destron! "You are a laser wave! Isn't it !!

    Newly modeled parts!

    The head of the monocular, which is a characteristic design, reproduces the shape with a new mold! The light gathering gimmick revives the image in the play that shines brilliantly! I told you that! ”“ A red lie !! ”

    Additional clear parts are included!

    Of course, the product is completely transformed from laser Vulcan mode to Robot mode! Laser Vulcan and wrist muzzle, which are clearly molded by LED gimmick, emit light! "Take the invaders of the vain Cybertron in their hands! Laser Wave !!

    I have both and love both, but I think it's nearly impossible for them to make a Shockwave I won't love.

    Does anyone have some back view photos of the MP36+ ?
    Does he have a new back, or still the same mess as the original MP36?

    Thank!

    What do you mean new back? Are you talking about that upgrade kit? There were no changes done for him.

    I meant his design, just not sure if there was any upgrades for this version. I wished that they fixed him a bit to have a cleaner back, or included something to cover. So likely it is just a re-coloured version.

    Well it’s retooled in a few aesthetic ways.

    I own both MP-36 and MP-36+. Aside from an additional G1 toy style swappable faceplate and chest plate, there is no new tooling.

    I really want to get MP36 but finding one in the UK (not on eBay) is proving difficult. Looking like I'll be paying eBay prices ugh

    I finally got MP-36+ and I am not disappointed! Such a beautiful piece! So much shiny chrome I'm almost afraid to touch it. The G1 toy deco works well on this design.

    I love this version of Megatron, though I have yet to transform him for fear of chipping and scratching. I would LOVE them to do a Marvel version....

    Anyone else think MP-29 should’ve been a bit taller???

    He is on the thin side to begin with... so an extra cm or two wouldn’t hurt... right?

    ...i only wish the barrel snugged-in tighter to his waist!..this figure is the only reason i might consider an eventual MP-44+; it truly is glorious to behold...

    ...definitely, shockwave cut an imposing figure in the fiction and was one of the largest toys in the '84 holiday season: he kind of requires plus-sized interpretation to own his shelf space alongside the other masterpiece figures...

    If Future is applied to the chrome, will it dull the finish, anyone try it on their MP-36+?

    I did and messed up the chest plate on my first copy: I ended up selling it for cheap and getting a replacement. First, it dulled the chrome a tiny bit. I could tell when I compared it to parts I didn't coat. Second if you put too much of it on, it creates a slightly milky finish, which looks terrible on chrome. I obviously messed up by applying too much, but I suspect applying it properly could still cause it to dull a bit.

    Actually if you go back to the toon his height seems about right. There is a YouTube video with just him in his toon scenes and he is shorter than soundwave and slightly taller than Screamer. That places him just right in the current scale. I do agree that instinctively he feels taller but the cartoon scenes are solid in that regard. I think it is due to his barrel chest which like some 5’9’’ guys with big chests in the gym looking like a 6 footer until you go up behind them and you realize they are actually quite a bit shorter.
