    Just the sword or the whole arm? Cause the hand could really use a hard-plastic upgrade

    I think it's just the sword.

    It needs to be wider at the midway point, and angled outward to give it a very elongated diamond shape.
    Nice try, but no.

    You sure? Because it doesn’t appear to be.

    I'll probably buy one. I've honestly been hoping to see something like this since I got Shockwave. He rubber sword is way too flimsy and doesn't stay in position well.

    Hopefully this sword will be much more snug.

    Now if someone will hurry up and design a set of carbines for Deluxe Soundwave!

    All that's left is a replacement hand hopefully with articulation even and he'll be perfect.

    Had it been a direct copy of the original sculpt it would have been a no-brainer.

    The rubber sword is maybe one of the worst accessories I've handled with a Transformers figure, nothing prepared me for how flimsy it is.

    But they've gone with their own design rather than an accurate one so... probably a no go.

    I see a lot of people saying the blade is "inacurite" and I'm wondering why?
    I've been eyeing this upgrade for sometime because I'm thinking of picking up Shockwave in the future.
    Also, maybe I'm excited for Doom Eternal, but doesn't he look like he could be part of the game? IDK, just a thought.

    it looks nice..but I dont even have a problem with the rubber one it came with EXCEPT, that it is hanginf off his arm SO far..This does nothing to fix that, Id like to see it recessed onto the arm more. I dont remember it looking like it was held on by a toothpick..which is my gripe with the original rubber one, and this.

    So he had this in the movie?
    It's hard to remember one pointy edge from a design that's nothing but pointy edges in a movie where every design is nothing but pointy edges.

    Hard to tell from photos. Is this black paint on white pla or black paint and silver paint on white pla?

    Probably would've been more memorable if he, y'know, used it.

    But the TF movies are all about pointless shit that's never used.
