Divine powers continue to wash us over with delights as new full-color photographs featuring Masterpiece Shockwave and Masterpiece Hot Rod hit the web today. It’s of note that TFsource posted grainier versions with “DO NOT COPY” plastered all over them. I lol’d.
The full photos displaying the accessories and alt-modes are just as glorious as the initial reveal a few days ago. There’s just one aspect shared by both of these guys that I can’t help but mention and that’s the absolutely enormous backpacks. It looks like these dudes independently graduated college and heading out on a quest to ‘find themselves’ in a foreign land. I suppose neither took the time to watch or read “Wild” either.
Backpacks aside, both of these are just simply awesome additions to the Masterpiece line. Shockwave appears to have a lot of customization available such as options of styles of hands (clear or opaque), his own “Shockwave” gun, a detachable hose, and you can even omit his cannon-hand!
Hot Rod still looks a little bit like two different sized robots cut in half and re-attached at the waist. He also appears to be following a bit in the footsteps of Masterpiece Rodimus Prime with his accordion style chest transformation. Well, we just can’t have it all and I cannot wait to get these guys in hand. Great work TakaraTomy!
