    Got my Refraktor Friday:

    I've actually been liking the "cybertronian hovercraft" forms they and Soundwave/Soundblaster have for the same reason I like Megatron tank-modes- I like that they have some sort of vehicle form they can convey themselves around in.

    The little tab at the front tip of the wing slides right under the nose piece. Do this before you attach the underside of the wings to the forearms.

    I managed to get a pre-order for Bluestreak in at Wal-Mart during a time it came back in stock for a hot minute, but I don't know whether I should be confident that I'll actually get him shipped to me, or to just bite the bullet and buy him at TCP for an extra $6....

    Agreed. And I think Hasbro has been killing it on Siege with vehicle modes for the characters mentioned while still keeping them looking very true to the cartoon designs with minimal kibble. Like Megatron the only real tank kibble is the tracks backpack which is not massively distracting in robot mode and the tracks on his legs aren't very noticeable. The same is true of Soundwave, his backpack cannons/nacelles don't detract from robot mode too much.

    I don't own Refraktor/Reflector but from the pictures I've seen of the toy and the cartoon it seems true for him/them too :)

    Looks amazing! I've been having a great time with the flight stands too!! I've said it before and it is so true: Siege is bringing out the 10 year old G1 fan in me like never before.

    Are the blast effects you used the Jetfire ones or customs??

    Very cool! Shockwave totally deserves that level of justice.

    They're from Jetfire. I haven't had a chance to make my own yet.

    More fun with flight stands...

    Awesome! I haven't opened my Jetfire yet. I did get some of the blast effects from Grimlock's Lab, but wasn't thrilled with the crafting quality on the Jetfire effects. Time for me to start researching how to make these myself *LOL*

    There is a listing on Walmart.com but it's not out yet.

    Come on people we do this every time.

    This post has made me rethink about selling my siege shockwave. It is still MISB. Now what I need is a motivation to unbox it.

    It's a damn good figure, and easily the best non-MP Shockwave ever made. Heck, I can honestly say I enjoy it even more than the superb Masterpiece.
    How's that?
