    Nice score, I have both versions and couldn't be happier. Since you have him what's the deal with this description I noticed on ShowZ:

    - Added missile launcher to back cannons

    Looks like you can add missiles to the back cannons that fire. Not my thing but maybe somebody else’s 8)

    Hmm, looks to be the same on the other 2 I have. Thought it was something new. Thanks for checking.

    Good to see they finally correctly painted Blast Off. I had to do it manually, but chose to keep it identical to my custom chest plate colour rather than more Decepticon purple

    Well done. You'd think they would've put the toon eye color on him.

    Didn't you get the 3P memo? LED's FTW!!

    I've painted Kronos, Bruticon and Constructor eyes already. I expect XTB's Menasor will be the same. Why not these 4 dudes as well? :banghead:

    LED's and light piping should be outlawed in the action figure realm.

    Precisely!

    Oh, and for some reason I thought I was in the Andras thread, because someone there painted the eyes on Scourge. I'm getting the reissue of him and Sweeps so it wasn't hyperbole when I said "4 dudes" completely out of context :lol . I've got me some eyes to paint once they arrive!

    nice, waiting on mines but blast off the colors look better and looks like they fixed the panel that would pop off on ratchet when combined.

    So, in addition to custom part for Swindle, toon chest plate and gun courtesy of @TigerBlade , painted myself in this case, I've now finally got around to picking up Mech Fans Toys version of Shockwave - my first Legends sized figure - after someone in this thread recommended it to me ages ago
    20200815_101939.jpg

    Looks the part, I think. I was genuinely surprised by the quality too. I get they aren't intricate MP style figures, but it generally has decent enough engineering and is very G1. I'm toying with Kup and Hot Rod for the Quint Pit from Hasbro to display with my HasLab Unicron, after seeing XTB's price for Dr. Egg. I'm even thinking of the dinobots too, but that might convince me to switch to this scale completely..

    Amazing piece. QC was perfect. Paint apps are great! Some pegs and holes are a really tight fit with the paint though. 0A7832AE-0092-478D-82E6-07E63403658D.jpeg

    The custom piece for Swindle is cool. I so want that piece and the toon gun.

    Believe or not, I cut to size some unused red stickers that came with the Toyhax Kronos set and applied them. Fortunately it was easy to take apart the head and apply the stickers directly to the visor for a nice tight fit. The best part of this approach is if I ever get the craving to go back to the LED eyes, or perhaps sell it, the process is easily reversible.

    For anyone potentially owning the metallic boxset:

    Have they finally fixed Blitzkrieg's robot mode balance when having the cannons mounted on his back?

    Did you have problems with the torso top that has four pegs that go into the shoulder and one in the middle? I am having a hell of a time with getting those tabbed in while keeping Blitzkreig's arms pegged into his body and the torso shell. :mad: The only thing that I may have done wrong was with Blitzkreig's side wheels. First go I didn't flip them and push them back. Once I did tho there was no click to indicate they'd stay on the upper back side of the figure, so if they've fallen down I guess that could maybe affect things.
