    Hmm. On one hand I love Shockwave and this is my favorite design for him. On the other, Im not sure I want to spend $100 on him now, seeing as how PX stuff usually gets marked down. Still though, glad to hear about the good QC.

    Thank you TheChosenPrime!
    He arrived, he’s fantastic, I’ve waited so so long for them to do Shockwave from the games.
    Minus his right hand not being able to open and falls off way too easy and sole tight joints. I’m very happy with this figure. The paint and detail looks much better in hand as well.

    I haven't had problems with the hands falling off or soles, but I agree with the tight fingers. Shock oil helps a little at least to the point where you won't feel like it's breaking.

    So what do you think the next game design will be? I'm crossing my fingers for Jazz, he had one of the best designs and like Shockwave a very skinny malnourished hasbro figure, he deserves justice. My other hope is Slipstream or Arcee, imagine a two pack? Tall deluxe in height but very sleek and thin. I think that could work.

    I just go my box from TCP yesterday. Now to see where I'm going to put them up (also picked up PX's Delta Magnus. I'm a sucker for the metallic decos :lol  ) and when. Time, as always, isn't my friend.

    Here's hoping they finally take the plunge into the FoC Combaticons.

    Don't get me wrong, I want combaticons, but if they do it's probably gonna be a series of releases, I'd like some less extensive and expensive figures, plus I feel like they need a break after doing Shockwave and IDW Grimlock in a row, thats why I thought smaller characters like Jazz or the fembots would be a good option. Takes a lot of money to make new unique molds that won't get reuse.

    That’d be awesome. The only good figure of her is the TFCC one, and that’s both rare and hella expensive.
    Personally, I hope they do more untouched IDW designs. But a game Soundwave or Jazz would be cool too

    What I want? Soundwave, Jazz, or Cliffjumper. But we probably won’t know for a while. FOC designs will probably take a backseat until their IDS Grimlock is released. I’d say another game figure reveal at some point in the last few months of the year.

    Bumblebee is high on my list.

    Would also like an Air Raid or Breakdown without going down the combiner rabbit hole. Didn't like the Jetfire and Silverbolt design.

    Metroplex would be nice but out of my price range.

    I own the Art of Fall of Cybertron, is their also a War for Cybertron version of something related?

    I'm honestly surprised they still haven't done a Jazz/Sideswipe or Bumblebee/Cliffjumper dual release yet, seems like a fairly easy cash grab. Personally though, I'm hoping for Warpath. I figure Soundwave would also be an easy reuse for Soundblaster and Blaster, but if I was to guess, I'd think they might be wanting to avoid coming up with a dozen or so "cassette" bots, sorta like how they've been avoiding Bruticus for awhile due to the uncertainty and costs for a combiner team.

    Damn it, I think that photo above with Trypticon just made me relapse back into collecting Planet X/FOC. Thanks a lot.

    Right there with you! After I ordered Shockwave I went and grabbed both Megatron and Starscream off BBTS. And now the Insecticons are on sale...

    He really does feel great. I had to do some work on my copy for the tight hands, hips, and the the elbow swivels though. After that though I couldn’t be happier!

    This guy’s forward/backward hip movement is suuuper tight. Like, scary tight. Tried loosing the waist screws and that didn’t help. I think the mushroom pegs might be slightly too large for the cavity, bc they’re kinda splitting the waist up top. I might try to sand them down a little, hopefully that’ll help. Also, my copy is unfortunately missing one of the purple honeycomb pieces on the back calves, but TCPnsaid they’d request the piece from PX and send it my way.
    Overall, I do quite like him though. The paint is gorgeous.
