Blackarachnia is up on amiami $109
They seem sturdier so far, but I haven’t had them set up long. I think they’ll be better, though. The peg is shorter and doesn’t look flimsy. It’s attached like the TT ones with a screw and nut. The stage 4 set comes with three separate attachments. I fixed 3 of my broken TT ones which is great! I’m buying another to fix my other two broken ones. I think the stage 4 set is best for fixing broken TT stands since it comes with so many arms allowing for tiered heights like in my pictures. Buying another tonight! Then I’ll look into the stage 5. I didn’t want to waste all my broken TT stands.
Nothing on Amazon Japan yet.
Is there a peg or slot for laserbeak to perch?
She's on Amazon JP now. My price is $116 shipped.
For MP Soundwave - yes, MP Megs - nada (although there should be based on a few episodes in the Animated G1 series in where Lazerbeak does perch on Megs arm).
And bought! $112.91 out the door.
Got my 4 most important Decepticons from S1.
I think i also have the most important Autobots from S1.
My Bee is OS and is standing on an other shelf. Need a mp sized Bee.
And maybe a Jazz, since he also has lots of screen time in S1.
Smokescreen is here because i just love the character. Who wants to gamble?
If Megatron was stripped of much of his articulation, paint, and accessories, engineering was closer to CHUG level, and he was sculpted with blockier, less sophisticated shapes, then you'd be correct, he'd be in Soundwave's league. I rate your "mental gymnastics" 10/10!
Rando snaps of my #1 from this morning, y'all.
Day booty tho...
Well this managed to single handedly convince me to go for Megatron a lot sooner than I initially planned. This figure is just so amazing. I cannot wait to eventually get my hands on this guy and Dinobot.
Not gonna argue with you! Not gonna agree with you either though
No question. Megatron’s technology is literally years ahead of Soundwave’s. After taking both apart, I can say that Megatron has the benefit from years of experience and boundary pushing to get the much desired and appreciated articulation and character display we see today. There is just a lot going on inside of Megatron. The only rub is that Soundwave is a tape deck with a simple shape and therefore requires a simpler transformation. I wouldn’t mind having a Soundwave+ to better fit in with Megatron but I’m still happy with him and his cassette children.
I just hope I don't come across like I'm shitting on Soundwave - looking at my avatar shows that I clearly love him! But no denying that these figures have stepped it up a few notches since his time, as you know better than anyone!
Captive in danger?...
Not at all. The two figures are totally different it’s better to put them in their respective epochs and then do a comparison. It all comes down to personal tastes when decided between which one to get. I don’t think anybody will misunderstand your love for Soundwave Dean.
Hey DJ, will you play that song. Keep ‘em dancing, dancing all night, all night!
@artimus prime - What happens if Shocky decides to go on the Beatbox floor? Will he think its ill-logical to do so?
