    huh? One is blue with a lean towards purple, which contrasts with actual purple bits, and the other is all purple.. there is a strong difference in hue between the two. Do you have a tinted phone screen or something?

    I like metallic, but I also like the contrast.. torn here.

    The EX deco seems true to the cartoon and the toy.
    The original deco is Takara purple.
    It looks nice and there is almost certainly art of Shockwave in that color from some "definitive" authority on Transformers colors, but I sure as heck never saw him looking like that in the cartoon.

    Yeah, those are not the same color at all. True that it might still be lighter than the OG toy, but it's really hard to tell because lighting seems to affect purple like crazy.

    looks pretty close based on some random pics though.

    G1 Shockwave toy is DARK. Many pics of him are taken with a flash etc, brightening him up. He's also bare metal and silver, no gray.

    Regular MS is more toon than toy, EX MS is basically the metallic version of that. Neither is very toy-based other than the transparent parts.

    They’re really killing it with the redeco game, I would buy every version of this if money were no issue.

    If the EX were a little less reflective and more matte, it would be a no brainer. I’m not sure he will fit in with the rest of my decepticons, but he definitely looks nice. Hmm.

    Well I've been umming and aahing over who will be my legends Shockwave but this EX version may tipped the balance n its favour. I do wish Magic Square would hurry up and announce a metallic version so I can have a good look at that and finally make up my mind.

    They do tend to appear much more shiny and Metallic in promo pics than in hand, noticed that with galvatron.

    The Galvatron EX was almost 40% more expensive than the standard version on TaoBao (US$15 diff).

    Hopefully Shockwave EX will be cheaper. It really looks very nice!

    I'm definitely interested in this Shackwave. That was my G1 Shockwave, and he just looks more imposing/intimidating than the purple one.

    I'm fine with this not being a priority for NA, but I would've bought both purple Shockwaves if one of them had come with extra orange chest and handgun bits for Action Master Shockwave. It's a silly little thing, but one I would've appreciated if offered (I figure his lil AM partner bot is a taller ask).

    Naw, that would have been amazing. I'm hoping if NA ever gets around to Inferno and Snarl that they offer a AM repaint. But since they didn't offer AM decos for Jazz or Bombshell in AM I'm not sure if there is enough interest.

    That would really be cool to get Action master versions.
    Who knows if they might someday do that, with the little partners included.
    I mean, they are doing new seekers and new toy versions of characters they already did.
    New Age seems really open to milk those molds and try unusual things.

    Getting the grey one for sure. I'm a sucker for Shackwaves.

    I'll order as soon as Show.Z puts up actual prices. Still don't like ordering those "Full Price Unknown" figures...

    In addition to the darker purple toy version, I'd be interested in a yellow/grey SG version. SG Shockwave has an ugly color scheme, but it's never existed as a toy before, and it would be nice to finally get one.

    I’m hoping a Shattered Glass version is announced as well. Either a yellow or red version would be cool.
