    More MP-29 love (50 shades of Shockwave):

    After holding this saluting pose, Shockwave's mind starts to wander...

    Slowly, he slips into a dream.

    Shockwave: Yes, that is correct. It is logical for the Decepticons to salute Shockwave!

    [​IMG]
    Shockwave: Acidstorm. Sunstorm. Let us away.
    [​IMG]

    Decepticons: Hail Shockwave! Hail Shockwave!
    [​IMG]
    Shockwave: Huh? What is this?
    [​IMG]
    Starscream: Mercy, oh mighty Shockwave!
    [​IMG]
    Starscream: Please mighty Shockwave have mercy!!!
    Shockwave: Be gone. (muttering) weakling.

    Starscream: Shockwaaaave!!! *shakes fist*

    Cheers bud :) 
    :lol  Good article too, man. I think you're right, most of us do crave uniformity, and (speaking personally) this new + line is muddying the waters of what I want (I do prefer a heavier toon influence) vs the collection I already have (which I'm very happy with as is) vs what TT sees as what fans want (a bland, undetailed deco that has as many negatives as it does positives). If only they'd retooled his arm/doors, I wouldn't feel quite so underwhelmed by this new Red Alert...
    Plight of the Bumblebee!! :D 
    :lol  finally another use for the salute hand!

    Thanks mate :)  And yeah I think MP-3 is perfect for a lone alt mode display somewhere, the kind of thing to shock people by revealing that it can transform!

    Just when I was thinking that Star Saber doesn't get enough love around here. Beautiful! I skipped this guy when he first came out, as I was feeling a bit of MP burn out at the time, but I finally remedied that about a week ago. I ended up loving him so much that I've got a second one on the way.

    LOL sorry just saw this comment. There's actually nothing in his chest. I think it's just a weird reflection when I took the pic :)

    Ah thanks...It looks pretty good that way. Thought it could be a 3P cassette or something.

    Nice write up Maz. Although I find MP-14+ interesting, I'll have to pass this one by.

    I just got Tracks. I've tried for almost an hour and simply cannot get the big tab keeping his front bumper together apart. Any advice?

    Another good read. I am happy for them to go back and correct these mistakes. I don't like my MP14 very much in robot mode.

    Nice article, Maz. When MP-14+ was announced, I thought "oh, crap. They're making me buy the entire MP line again." The dread.

    Mine was the same way. I had to apply way too much force to get it open. I tried it again and it did the same thing, so I shaved the tab a bit with a razor blade and now it works just fine.

    Rearranging my collection today. Decided to move Soundblaster away from the group. For the first time ever I transformed him (I don't own Soundwave). So simplistic yet satisfying.

    He is now in alt mode beside my old film cameras. He blends in pretty well actually. Took a photo of him just before he joined the cameras.

    EDIT:
    And here he is with one of my cameras.
