His arm hose (is that what we call it?) looks like it's made out of a very tightly coiled metal spring.

Over the years, I've learned not to get too excited over a prototype figure. Looks very promising, but il wait for the final model.

Holding my breath here....


.... what if the leg transformation is the basis of a new Megatron?

It would be great because those G1 rubber hoses are mostly split in several parts. A heat-treated very tight coiled srping, but a soft spring, would fix that problem.

Is it me or has there been a flurry of mp releases and/or reveals this year, or Is this normal and I'm just noticing it?

Its not normal, no.

To me (at least) - this might point to a lack of other figures being on the horizon, or maybe its the fact the design team saved a lot of time with Combiner Wars through repaints\remolds ect, leaving more finance for Masterpiece design?

His gun arm has a button-like indent on it. Lights and sounds?

I'm betting it's just a temporary thing. I would expect the final release to be rubber.

Gawd I'd hope not.

At least, let's hope it will be a high quality rubber that don't dry out easely.

Also, why so many hope MP Shockwave not have lights and sound? Because the original G1 toy had it and it was great. Very loud and annoying, but great. The arm hose is also part of the electronics. That hand-gun should light pretty bright with a satysfying "PEW PEW PEW". Also, Shock wave should have another button to say phrases. His eye would flash in sinch with his voice. It would be awesome!

I'm also pretty sure they can incorporate electronics without messing the overall design.

I'm thinking Hastak is finally starting to feel the sting of the 3rd party market.

I personally detest electronics. They tend to ruin what could be great figures.

That being said, G1 Shockwave did incorporate the electronics well.

BUT ... will it add cost to what will already be a expensive figure?

ROTF Leader Optimus Prime have electronics and is considered the defenitive Movie Optimus, and also, one of the best TF ever. It's also true that even in the early 1980's Shockwave's electronics were perfectly well implemented. If the designers are not drunk, they can do a great job with MP Shockwave.

As for incresed costs, it's a moot point. First, it will be a "leader" sized MP and those tend to be expensive from the start. Second, Shockwave don't need extra accessories. No need for detachable guns or trailers. This way, it could be even less expansive than the original MP Soundwave, who came with a cassette. Let's just hope it will have lights and sounds like the original G1 toy and no extra bits. This way, it could cost roughly 12000Y at the very most... or they'll say "fokkit" and gouge the price à-la MP-11 or Asia anything. No matter it's features.

If they ,TT puts voice clips, I'd rather not, 'cause the JP version is waaaaaay opposite in character akin to the JP Starscream sounding like more of a young full of bravado upstart that the geeky high pitch schemer we all love. Corey Burton's Sark is the one true voice for Shockwave.

And ...electronics will hampre his mobility.

Soundblaster was 15800 yen. If he has electronics, which seems more than likely, he'll probably hover around that price. I would say no more than 17000, given Ultra Magnus was 18000.
I'm betting on 14 - 15000 yen.
Then with a 20% discount on preorder.
Hopefully the conversion rate doesn't get too terrible by then.

I'm not so sure that the electronics would hamper his mobility, but having said that I still don't want them. I guess an LED and gun sound wouldn't be horrible, but please, please no voice chip. You're dead on right with the difference in character, but if they have to do a voice chip, I'd rather they relegated it to a stand like previous MPs

Any guesses about accessories? Not much that isn't bolted to the floor or self-propelled.

Wouldn't surprise me if it's the miniature version of his alt-mode that the animator mistook for his gun once. And maybe one of his dome-head robots like MP-21 Exosuit?

Those wondering about the sounds need not worry. It was said (on one of the sites covering the show) that shockwave will have lights but no sound. That reminds me of MP 1.

Even if that price is correct, he will be worth the $20 extra to get as opposed to Quakewave. I've owned both the G1 figure in mint condition as well as Quakewave. With G1, my only problem was the lower legs. They were too skinny. With Quakewave, they were too thick, and his chest was too short and high. The lower legs of the MP look perfect, though his chest still looks a bit too short. otherwise, MP Shockwave truly is what the line claims: a masterpiece.

As for the barrel detaching in the cartoon, I stand corrected. I did say "IIRC." I guess I didn't. Image
