    It's hard not to be cynical about this.

    It looks nicer than the first one, and I'd even go as far as to say that this one looks more like the toon version anyway. In-hand, it's rather obvious that the first MP Laserwave's purple and translucent plastic is way too pale, even compared to animations cels.

    And again, no metallic on those flat grey areas is still a bit of a buzzkill.

    Did you paint the eye or use photoshop on it, because mine looks orange when the light piping is in full force?

    So glad I sold my lavendar one for $100, so I could buy this version for $200. This is the last time Takara gets me with a bait and switch, looking at you eventual MP Galvatron.

    Looks lovely, and had I had the choice between the two I'd have gone for this deeper, richer purple. But I've made peace with Lavenderwave, his pastel colouring does go better with the newer figures, notably Megatron.

    With the official figures and third party offerings there's a Shockwave out there for everyone.

    It is a tasty purple, but something about the paleness of the original shockwave really does it for me.

    For the base shots, I don't think I messed with the eye. On the later ones in set that are more artistic, I did light it up, along with chest and hands.

    Hang on, I thought this version was also called the \"anime\" version?

    The best price I seen on this piece so far is $183 with the coin. I still have not bought one, as I think the price will drop. I will probably buy one when I find it in the $150 range before any 15 or 20% flash sale.

    Goddamnit, I want this really bad but the prospect of paying about 60 dollars more for the colors he should have been originally released with in the first place really bothers me. I can get the original plus Quakeblast on that price point, it really ain't worth 210 fat bucks :/

    Exactly where I'm at with this. If I can pick him up cheaper during black Friday next year I'm in..otherwise,not interested. This should've been the first release,for them to correct the color and raise the price by $60 is just shitty.


    At this rate their next release will be a new Prime for $450...oh,wait...
