I’m sure the title of this post has some Transformers fans quivering with rage.
After all, there is no Masterpiece Shockwave.
OH YES THERE IS!
FansToys Quake Wave is excellent quality. It’s easily one of the best pieces in my collection, matching the standards of an official MP in both plastic quality and design. The articulation, the transformation, even the light up gimmicks, all of this makes for the best representation of the one-eyed purple logic monster.
With what FansProject charges for a Scout class robot, it seems easy to think that a Masterpiece class robot would be astronomically priced, but FT QT cost about as much as importing Takara’s MP Soundwave.
And in case you haven’t seen it yet, go watch Shockwave’s Burden by Dr. Smoov.
So, dear readers, what’s your favorite version of Shockwave? Is the purple people eater purple or does it only eat purple people?
