Yep, he can work. Some old photos i took.
Another one bites the dust. Hips moved just fine out of the box. Noticed big cracks on the right hip housing so I suspect it was glued. The left one unfolded no problem and I tried pushing the right one open from the inside but it wouldn't budge. I pulled with the force of a mouse and the leg immediately disconnected.
Showz says they have the replacement part, but since the housing is glued together and won't unfold, I doubt I can fix it.
i haven’t even attempted to fiddle with mine till the replacement parts come in. Told showz to send it cause the hips on mine are very fragile and wobbly.
THOSE PICTURES HAVE CONVINCED ME!
I’m thinking of using the points I get from Show Z for buying NewAge Soundwave to buy this guy and BMB Deep Desert Brawl. Shockwave honestly doesn’t look too bad with those three. I am assuming BMB Scream is as big of not similar sized to MPM Scream.
That sucks man. Any news on getting it replaced?
TFSafari got back to me with an order number "if it should happen." So... maybe?
Just fiddling with my one-armed purple people eater in the meantime.
I am hoping that mine arrives tomorrow. I am nervous that it will be a V1 and/or it will be broken upon arrival. Either way, I should be able to confirm if Baba does indeed have the V2s in stock.
V2 arrived last night. The legs are still on but a bit worrying. Other than that its an amazing figure
Well, I have a bit of good news and a bunch of bad news. Good news is that Baba is indeed shipping out the V2s. It looks glorious. Bad news is that the box arrived completely destroyed and the figure was broken upon arrival.
Mine was broken in the same spot. Left arm was completely sheered off. Hopefully, this isn’t a widespread issue.
Anybody have any experience with Baba customer service? I am hoping that they can send me a new arm or something.
Sad to hear you had the same thing happen, but hey, solidarity.
So now we might have to wait for v3 if we want a BMB scale Shockwave?.
I think zeus is bmb not too sure
Yep, confirmed by Showz. QC kinda made it obvious.
NoooWas messing around with him and his arm just sheared off his body
Aannddd now he's armless
Oh my God this is really one of the figures with worst articulations ever.....
Sorry about that, cause he really looks good and would be a great display with New Age Soundwave....
Yeah with how long I (and many others) have been waiting for a Leader scale Shockwave, it's crushing to see one reach production and yet have such poor QC. I'll probably eventually end up getting one, but I'm not expecting it to last long...
Good grief! I hope they've just fallen back inside the body, otherwise... those screws don't go anywhere near far enough into the arms, which makes that kind of breakage almost certain - especially if they've been over-tightened. Plus side (if you can call it that) it's the kind of thing you could do a little preventative maintenance on, and it may not even be that hard to fix post-breakage.
They clearly didn't take into consideration the amount of torque you can put on a figure this big and tried to cut too many corners.
Dang. I am sorry to see this. Given the engineering of that connection point, these breaks are probably going to be fairly common. My right arm is attached, but I can tell that a break is inevitable. The shoulder connection points are pathetic. I really hope that we can get replacement shoulder parts much like the hip replacements in V1.
Anyone still buying this figure is insane with how many posts showing it just break. Fuck that.
