Classics Prime, and MP Prime are probably the best incarnations.

It's hard to beat their accurate, yet fun factor.

You know, I'mma actually gripe about Shockwave briefly. I REALLY wish he was the darker purple of the toy instead of the more toon-accurate shade they're using.

On the other hand, it's a testament to how GOOD that original toy was that they're using almost-identical arms and shoulders thirty years later(I see one added hinge, making the shoulder two-axis instead of one-axis).

The legs, by contrast, are COMPLETELY different, but they were always the original robot's weak link.

You can wait for MP-29O, Shockwave Original Toy Color.

But I want Shockwave purple, not Astro Magnum gray. :p

Wait, does this mean TakaraTomy has a way to milk three distinctly different releases out of a one-character mold?

I would've preferred darker purple as well and a switch in the back for two sounds including a 9v battery:)

I think MP-Shocky's might have the same purple as your beloved and not-found-yet Trypticon-reissue...

I like the current shade of purple. With that color I don't feel the need to replace my FT Quakewave. ^_^

[edit:] I don't know the US safety regulations that well but could you imagine that Hasbro will bring over MP Shockwave in toy accurate colors?

i checked late last sat on rt 17 and 4 in Paramus but no dice. i think RT 17 had them but i was traveling in MA for work when he released so was late to the game.

It's MP-10 all over again. I guess we either hope for a re-release or give the scalpers double what they paid. Eff scalpers.

The problem with US toy gun laws is there's a mishmashed patchwork of state laws ranging from "when I was a kid we didn't have any problems" on to "the entire thing has to be flourescent orange so you can tell it's a toy from low Earth orbit".

I suspect Shockwave will not pass any US toy gun laws, especially not the stricter ones of California and New York. And with California and New York being huge markets...

...

Hmmm. Research indicates that "bright purple" is an allowed toy gun color, at least at the federal level. But Astro Magnum coloration DEFINITELY won't fly, and probably not original toy coloration.

At this point, I think only a 3P Trypticon will satisfy me. (and I don't mean SD/chibi!)

Glad to help. ;)

On other news, I caved and pre-ordered MP Hot Board Rod along with Shockwave. For some reason, I seem to be making so many impulse buys lately.

Not a TF fan at all but aside the Dinobots, Shockwave was always a favorite of mine! He's pretty cool!

The proportions on the head are pretty weird..

Giant legs. Giant head.

Easy, easy pass for me haha. They are going to fly that mold into the sun I guess.

I'm honestly surprised it's taken them this long to DO a Ramjet. I mean, it's only minor work to get SIX characters out of the mold instead of three, so why NOT do it? How many repaints has Optimus had?

Yeah, it's an easy pass for me too. Walking away from the seeker mold wasn't hard, especially since I have another transforming fighter collection. ;) But I will say that this news is cool for those who are into it.

I think the seekers stands to obliterate MP-10 for repaints. Off the top of my head, Hasbro has brought MP-10 to retail twice in some form and Takara has issued four variations of MP-10. Did I miss any?

For the seekers, MP-11 has been released by Hasbro four times (now that ToysRUs has Starscream) and Takara has released MP-11 five times. One could argue that Acid Storm shouldn't be counted twice since Takara's release was exactly the same paint scheme as Hasbro's release. But now that Ramjet is announced, that opens another door for more paint schemes, driving this mold off into foreverland. :lol:

I'm also in, been waiting forever and I'm not willing to pay evil-bay price for the igear version. At this point I don't think Takara will ever do another mold for the seekers.
