    EX pics are up on the NA Weibo. Still waiting on someone to do a painted eye.

    I've been hemming and hawing, but that pic settles it, I think. EX for me.

    EX would look a lot better with silver instead of grey. (so would the regular one, for that matter)

    EX is definitely better looking than the reg. but still holding out to see side by side with shackwave before making a final decision on which to purchase.

    Not gonna lie. That EX Shockwave looks nice. Not sure $60 nice. I’m getting less and less enthused about these purchases now.

    I so much would love to get the shackwave version, but $ 65 at Show.Z. ... It's too much.

    I thought IF Megatron was already expensive at $ 60, and that came with several pieces to alter his appearance to create four different versions of Megatron -- of which I just used one set and done. NA Shockwave is just Shockwave.

    Then again, I paid close to $ 40 for IF Exhaust/Marlboror Wheeljack and Shockwave is a bit bigger. A bit.

    I'd pay 120 for the ex version if it was voyager sized, which is how thid party chug used to be priced.
    Seriously, this is the best G1 Shockwave toy I have ever seen. Certainly with that deco.
    I keep enlarging the image, hoping that the toy would become bigger.
    Please, someone, upsize this guy.

    The thing about NA figures is they ooze quality. The sharpness of the lines, the well painted decos, the die cast. To me , the first fews years of TF toys were premium.. they were expensive, and they felt it. I couldn't afford to get one outside of birthday or xmas. Once the combiners started coming out and afterwards, quality dropped, we started getting colorful kiddy plastic, alt modes that didn't look like anything. But those first few years, dang they were good, and NA replicates that feeling. It's why I'm buying in to the NA constructicons, because although I like all my MS figures ok, they just don't give me that 'gosh this is sexy plastic crack, look at the smooth crisp lines' feeling, and the alts that look just like the first round of toys.

    Agreed. I think their toy colours Galvatron is about the sharpest legend figure I've ever seen. Shockwave could top it.

    hmmm… not sure if it's just the video quality, but i was expecting shackwave to be a darker grey. looks to be fairly light. too light for me, so guess i'm getting the EX version and save myself some money.

    Yeah, I was also expecting Shackwave to be a darker gunmetal gray. Oh well. Now that they’re out I think EX is my favorite, but I’ll just stick with the toon version I already ordered.

    Here are a few other pics of Shackwave from weibo:
