Am I the only one who doesn't care? It's pretty horrible how Takara is wasting effort on releasing a black version of SW... when they could potentially be using those hours/budget to do a (I don't know) Reflector???? That'd be a nice MP...
So when they say "for those who want to display him as toy accurate versus those who want to display him as cartoon accurate"... is there anyone who actually gives a f*ck about "toy accurate"?!?
Seriously... is there, like, 3 guys out there that prefer "toy accurate"? The entire point of the MP line is for CARTOON ACCURATE. So the whole "toy accurate" thing sounds like a contrived explanation for reselling the same SW... but in chocolate.
Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves!
So... what the heck is wrong with you?
I'm asking seriously. If you really don't care, you shouldn't write a post like this. That you did write a post like this indicates that you care a lot. But in the wrong way.
A black Soundwave isn't just about a Soundblaster figure - a legitimate enterprise in its own right for those who DO care about the Japanese Headmasters franchise. Especially since it takes very little effort to recolor an existing figure, and offer such a minor, toy accurate accessory.
Rather, it's about selling a figure that will enable Takara and Hasbro to design and produce additional MP figures. That's essentially what every single MP redeco is about. Be it Red Alert, Tigertrack, MP-10B - you name it. So why don't you just simmer down.
If you truly don't care, just back off.
