    Here's a little easier/simpler way to do this color thingy purple comparo with MP-Shocky, and it involves MP Soundwave.

    I was gonna do it, but since I won't get my Shocky until after possibly two weeks from now, I would like you or somebody else who owns Hasbro MP-Soundwave do it for us.

    -- Get the box of Hasbro MP-Soundwave. Remove the wraparound crap. You just need his purple box.
    -- Get Rumble (ribfir ftw!) out.
    -- Get Rumble's piledrivers out.
    -- Stand MP-29 among these stuff.
    -- Take photos of 'em against a white poster board as background.
    -- Post the pics here. (Do not use imgur. They totally suck now.)

    Voila!

    Amidst all this Shockwave/Ramjet appreciation we need to take a break and appreciate some Exhaust ;) 
    Still my favorite MP.

    This is exactly how Im expecting it to go with me. In all the shots I've seen the colour, finish and hight look, to me, off. We can look at screenshots, comic scans and do colour swatches all we like to prove or disprove this but the point remains he looks off to me. Seeing him next to other MPs and these issues are all the more jarring. That aside I really like the design and general aesthetic and am hoping I can get over/learn to live with my little issues in hand.

    As great as PS is, you can not get true color representation on a monitor. The color difference varies from monitor to monitor and more so if the monitor is not set up correctly. On top of all that electronics use a RGB color space and printed color is CMYK. Having the figure in hand is the only way to see the true shade of purple, but I like the effort and appreciate the color samples.

    indeed.

    Which is why I said:

    Although, I don't use a monitor. My computer display is a professionally calibrated reference HDTV. :p  But even then, yeah. It's impossible to get an image of him that controls for all variables and is absolutely neutral and "accurate." Trying to is futile, which is why I sought to show a range of color samples from multiple images which, to my satisfaction, show he's "pretty damned close" for my money.

    Again, the intent was not to demonstrate the accuracy of the color, but merely to explain why said color is acceptable for me.
