    Just wondering. We have upgrades for UW Devastator and MP Ironhide, so why not?

    If I had the skills, I would make something like this:

    -Some kind of foot extension to make his feet wider (to alleviate the ballerina foot appearance), or a newly designed foot altogether. This could add some extra height as well.
    -A new head with a light up gimmick.
    -Articulated hands.

    Any other ideas are welcome.

    Maybe a parts forming little piece to fill the back part of gun, kfc would probably do a mp 29 articulated hands sometime and maybe make one of their own mp shcokwave, I think a head light gimmick would be a lot of time and practice, but light piping is okay with me tbh. I think I would get into a light head depending on the cost, also, how bright would the light be, where would you put the battery, etc and etc. and etc.

    If anything, I'd buy a recolored and slightly oversized KO of MP29. (QW all the way!)

    Yep, I've been waiting for articulated hands for ages now and nothing.

    Although what I really wish for is a recolored KO that actually has cartoon accurate colors as @King Nergil suggests! I can't believe it hasn't happened yet. :(

    D'oh. What about a third option?

    "I don't like MP-29/no interest in upgrade kits." Something like that.

    I'm no arsehole though; I know there are people who have no real issues with him (other than what you listed anyway) and like him just fine. I wouldn't want to deny people stuff just because *I* personally don't like the official figure.

    If a 3P wants or wanted to do it, sweet! I just personally would rather the good companies focus their effort elsewhere.

    Well, if you don't like MP-29 and have no interest in owning him (which is cool by the way), you don't need to vote. This poll doesn't apply to you. I never saw the point of including options that don't serve any purpose, just so people can feel included.

    If there was a quick way to add the g1 sounds in there I would throw down money for that.

    I was thinking the same thing. I don't know how people are able to remember all the MPs by number.

    I'd rather just buy an improved knock off, especially if it was slightly smaller.

    I had to Google. It's Shockwave.

    Seriously, a large portion of us don't have this memorized.

    I'd need an MP29 first. I think any upgrades that I'd want to improve it would just bring it closer to looking like Quakewave, which I already have.

    Ultimately if they do a plus version of the toy deco I'm replacing mp 29, without hesitation. So this might all be a moot point.

    The feet have always been an annoyance for me so if they could make some kind of replacement that didn't interfere with transformation, I would def consider it. Other than that it's a paint job issue.

    But... but... he's the definitive interpretation of an animation accurate model made into tangible 3D form? Blasphemy!
    How dare you challenge the wisdom of the mighty Takara Creators!
