Having owned this mould previously, if I bought this it would be purely because of my affection for Shockwave. He couldn't go with the MP display because he's too small. But this now looks like it should, just an inch too short.
Well. Now that looks so much better than the original release. Gotta love that deep purple. Although yes, I am slightly perturbed by the price. And by the fact that he's a little short for a Shockwave.
The previous release I could ignore, but this looks nicer. But then, there's also all those tasty BW MPs coming. Decisions, decisions...
I just got the original, but I must admit, this is a far better colour scheme. That said the £135 is too rich for my blood at the moment, and I'm pretty happy with the one I've got. Its a cracking toy.
Going from the blog post, are the Decepticon logos tampographed on now, rather than stickers?
