    Why are they replying to a comment I made in January besides wanting to cause problems. Like seriously

    Probably within a few weeks of March. They’re going to be doing weekly fanstreams

    Preorders go live Thursday. Probably slated for a May release going by the stock images, but don’t be surprised if the whole wave ends up releasing sooner. With the exception of Swoop, these guys have been in port since December.

    Basically yeah I would not be suprised if in 3 days to 2 weeks we see him go in stock and ship. What happened with BBTS, they charged for wave 2 United like 1-2 days after the stream they got revealed on.

    Well I preordered this guy yesterday from Pulse. I like the core figure so it's nice to have an updated version of him in voyager.

    This and comic book.shockwave will be my last versions of him. I don't feel I will need anymore. Its only logical lol

    Would anyone happen to have the DPCI/UPC or barcode at the bottom of the box?

    Decided to finally just nab him today (out for a while in Australia), he's a Shockwave that does Shockwave poses with no issues.
    Yes the lack of bicep is a copout but he has enough articulation elsewhere imo, so many people here need their precious ankles and wrists to pose a figure doing simple A stance and shoot/ :man_standing: emoji instead of getting creative.
    I'm more disappointed in the alt mode and horrible light piping.

    TL;DR Shockwave looks good, poses fine despite the bicep copout. Shameful light piping. 8/10.

    Light piping comparison with Siege Shockwave who I also recently tracked down:

    Edit: I had to use a flashlight to get any results, might just paint it...

    Shockwave and Shockwave getting together so Shockwave can have a playdate with Shockwave.

    Anyone who wants his eyes to be more visible without losing his light piping, here's a method i used.

    I just stuffed some aluminium foil behind his eyes. The reflectiveness makes it shine when it hits the light at certain angles.

    Looks great, how'd you do it? I want to get rid of the smudges and paint the charcoal grey into silver for more accuracy

    91% rubbing alcohol and q-tips, all of the battle damage is on unpainted parts. it comes off quite easily, just take it slow and be careful around the chest as the front piece is clear plastic.
