Takara Tomy Masterpiece Shockwave Discussion Thread

Postby Autobot032 » Thu Sep 24, 2015 8:57 pm

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
We've just posted a big reveal pertaining to Masterpiece Hot Rod, which you can read right here: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... led/33944/

But, that news (courtesy of K_hobby) has revealed something even bigger and better, a figure we've all been anticipating for some time...

Masterpiece Shockwave!

That's right, your eyes do not deceive you, Takara Tomy is producing their own Masterpiece Shockwave and he looks fantastic! No ETA is available at this time, but the wait is going to be unbearable for most because this is Shockwave, people, you know you're excited!

Bask in his prototype glory:

UPDATE: Thanks to fellow Seibertron news staffer, LOST Cybertronian, we've found new images courtesy of the hobbylog.jp blog and you can see them below:

My only complaint is while it's appropriate, the head should be a bit smaller for the sake of the figure.

I guess. I'm just saying that while it's appropriate for shockwave, having it few milimetters smaller would make it look more proportionate by human-y standards. I mean like quakewave has a big head, but he also has wide and bulky shoulders to balance it out. MP shockwave's are wide, but not as bulky.

Please don't ruin the joy before it has a chance to thrive. There's a time and place for that conversation, a little later on in the thread. C'mon guys. We don't need a battle brewing at this moment, at least let it get to page 2 or 3.

You know what I take it all back, i'm used to shockwaves having narrower faces if that makes sense, and deeper set eye(s). MP's is a lot fuller for lack of a better term.

I wouldn't consider not getting the Has/Tak version -- you've gotta get the real thing and support the line. But I gotta say that right now, Quakewave is still looking a lot better to me, except for that stupid hose placement. Still, this is just a prototype, so hopefully they can take it up a notch.

And that was some stone-cold Machiavellian brilliance, leaking those images right before Quakewave was supposed to be hitting the major retailers. Well-played, HasTak; well-payed. :APPLAUSE:
