Word is reaching us that start up company http://www.fantoys.com has ceased operating and the upcoming FT-02 Acoustic Wave figure is no more. As a product this figure was incredibly close the knuckle with regard to Hasbro's Transformer property G1 Soundwave, more so than most of the existing unofficial figures already on the market.

More news as we get it, we're hoping to reach the Fantoys guys for clarification on this.



Also, from other sources, it was also found that the www.fantoys.com site is down, but the weibo page is still up.

And this is why I don't get excited over figures not being made by established orginizations. It could lead to disappointment

Even established companies (*cough cough HASBRO) break our hearts routinely. But this announcement is one of the saddest in a long time, for me. Particularly after seeing those beautiful prototypes. Hopefully there'll be a hail mary save of some sort...

That's sad to hear, because I enjoyed BOTH Soundwave prototypes they've shown. And I believe they had a Blaster on the books as well.

Too bad. I was especially looking forward to their casettes. I guess these just don't work out sometimes.

Perhaps, but they have a much better track record of getting stuff out than some.

They could always shrink it down to Voyager and change it a bit as a sort of Classics Soundwave.

Yeah, this is tragic. Soundwave is THE Masterpiece figure I want. All others are way down on the list.

Same with a decent Classics figure of SW, along with Megs. (Still really confused about which of the three 3rd party Megs to get.)

Really, I want my Classics lineup nicely completed, and as G1 accurate as possible. Same for the Masterpiece line, though that's next to impossible to see. For it, at least we could get the major players... including SW and cassettes, Bumblebee (that's right, we never got an Alternators Bumblebee!), and some of the other deluxe cars in their original experimental race car forms - like Wheeljack, Jazz, Mirage - plus Prowl, etc.

Yeah, and I've been very pleased with the Masterpiece figures for the most part. I think if Takara DID go for Soundwave, we'd be pretty happy with the results. There's a repaint possibility for Soundblaster plus an odd white version if they want. PLUS we'd all be in for cassettes....

They could package one with Buzzsaw, Rumble - and the repaint set with Laserbeak and Frenzy.

Maybe sell a separate set of Ravage and Ratbat?

Hmmm. They could sell the cassettes ALL separate and make a boatload of money.

Come on Takara. Take my money!!!

Takara already announced that they'd do MP Soundwave a while ago. It was announced at the same tiem we heard that they would make an encore Fort Max.

Yeah, I think Takara realized what mileage they could get out of the Sideswipe mold, based on Classics.

Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Breakdown G1 and G2, G2 Sideswipe, Punch/Counterpunch, Tigertracks, 'Patriot,' Diaclone Police Sunstreaker, Clamp Down, Deep Cover, Red Alert, Scamper, Alternators Dead End, Armada Wheeljack, RID Prowl, - G2 Firecracker/G2 Gobot Sideswipe/G2 Gobot Optimus Prime/RiD R.E.V......

>:oP

Given, at the top of my list, show characters... (in order)...

Sideswipe
Sunstreaker
Red Alert
Breakdown
G2 Sideswipe
G2 Breakdown
Punch/Counterpunch

Maybe they could do a set of the G2 decos for a convention? G2 Breakdown with G2 Sideswipe? Cripes. Why didn't Hasbro do that???? Brilliant! :-?

I think they may have some different parts, but I'm guessing with the recession and all... everyone will be a little more open to bots sharing a mold.

We're waiting for confirmation, but it seems that Sidecutter of CapturedPrey got an email from FansToys that FT-02 (MP not-Soundwave) will be released, though there are still some issues that are being resolved.

Email from Fanstoys
sure it will be released, we just have some problem to resolve right now.



BTW, FT-03 will be not-Shockwave, to be followed by FT-04 not-Blaster - c/o deaculpa of TFW2005.

Man I hope that's the case! Even if this only serves to force hasbro/takara to realize the demand is out there and deliver, we still win. It doesn't matter to me one way or another who is on the recieving end of my order as long as it gets delivered.

Hopefully this'll coem out with no problems. And I'd LOVE an MP Shockwave. It may even be okay in a classics collection, considering that he's one of the bigger bots. Maybe.
