    I still want a Toy Deco with Shockwave. Insignia on chest, silver or chrome legs, and also black hose from arm.

    I think maybe it's time to shop around and find 29+ from somewhere else buddy!

    Opening him on Christmas would be pretty nostalgic.

    The prototypes all look painted, right? It would certainly justify the price increase, but I'm not expecting it. Painted or not, he'll still look gorgeous in this darker purple.

    I'm guessing he'll just be cast in darker purple plastic. Doesn't make sense to cover an entire figure in paint that wasn't painted before. What would that do for clearances and stuff?

    Good point. There may be some areas where it'd be ok to apply paint without worrying about rubbing, but I think I'd rather a full paint job or nothing, rather than mismatching painted and unpainted parts.

    Although, maybe Kobayashi did design Shockwave with tolerances for paint, but ultimately the paint job was removed from the budget?

    I can't wait to have the most perfect version of Shockwave in hands. It's a matter of a few days now!
    I already sold my standard MP-29 from 2016.

    It looks really shiny on the last set of pics. Maybe is the light, but it makes me think is actual paint. Can't wait!



    And the best part?


    A store just opened here locally, that sells high end toys. So future MP's (that are not able to be shipped from Amazon JP, that is) can be picked in person!

    IN PERSON!!!

    Picking up both MP-29 and 36+ is going to be an experience! Just like going to the toy store on a Saturday.

    I can not fucking wait!

    A bit off topic, but I was wanting to pick up another regular megatron and wondered if the later runs had better paint. The one I have has lots of scratching on the hip panels and I've never even transformed it

    Don't know if this helps, but I'm pretty sure mine is a second run and I haven't noticed any paint scratching. However, I've only been brave enough to transform him like twice ;)

    I might take a chance on a second run. Mine was scratched from the factory

    I can't wait either. But I heard BBTS is going to tease us a bit by shipping to us sometime in 2025.

    What makes him unique? Besides color of course. Any accessories that are exclusive?

    The eye is remolded. And I believe an extra hand is included. The extra hand may be wrong though.

    Correct, it comes with an extra transparent left fist, for recreation lf Shockwave’s run as The Immortal Iron Fist.

    Paid off the invoice today, good timing with the fall in the Pound to be paying jn Euro. Maybe I should even have waited a few more days!

    Glad that you finally put in your pre-order!


    Kapow estimate their stock arriving on the 29th, but I imagine people who ordered through TTMall will get theirs shipped out pretty soon, they usually get sent out earlier.
