BTS Soundwave on the Horizon?

Postby El Duque » Tue Feb 01, 2011 7:33 am

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Third party toy maker BTStoys may be venturing into full blown figure territory. TFW2005 member Hound2501 has come across images labeled BTS-04 that appear to prototypes of a Soundwave based off of Guido Guidi's micro-cassette recorder concept art. If you purchased last their offering BTS-04 Matrix of Leadership, you may recall a shadowy teaser image on the back of the packaging that does match up to these prototypes. No source is given for the images, and neither BTStoys website or blog contain these images. The homepage does have a listing for a product labeled BTS-04, but it pulls up images of their previously released BTS-03 G1 Optimus Prime upgrade set and BTS-02 weapons pack. Additionally the resin prototype appears to able to hold a G1 Cassette.

Not sure, initially I thought it was a G1 cassette, but upon closer inspection I'm not so sure. It's definitely a cassette of some sort though.

I am sucker for G1 homages, so this could be interesting.
Although I own Music Label Soundwave already, so if this too expensive, I will pass.
I still await the day that Takara releases a MP version of Soundwave or perhaps a deluxe version of him.

That might be one of the Cassetticons, not sure who, though.

No because this is just like the original Soundwave a mini cassette player/recorder, which are still used today.

Another somewhat interesting 3rd Party figure I don't really need... like many, I already have ML Soundwave to fill the spot. I also wasn't too impressed with BTS Toys' QC on their trailer, but maybe they've improved since then.

Looks good to me!!

I could see a nice metallic finish on that SOundwave. That would put it over the top for me.

I've got too many cassettes and not enough Soundwaves to put em in. SO this would be very welcome in my collection.

I personally would love a working tape player but it would have to play full size cassettes. Nobody used these mini ones unless you were documenting dialouge or bootlegging a band.

Also yes, cassettes are obsolete but some of us still have them and play them. My full sized Soundwave cassette player just died and needs it's guts rebuilt. It plays my tapes all warbly and sounds like it's gonna chew up the tape.

I like it!

I'd have to see the final product, and I hope it would hold cassetticons, but so far so good.

I have the nemesis trailer, and it was OK. I almost even bought the regular Prime trailer for use with Animated.

Don't get your hopes up. Somehow I don't think the bot mode will look like the drawing. The thigh and legs will probably look like G1/Masterpiece Megatron's.

It's nice that more unused designs are being picked up by 3rd parties. But as I'm not a fan of asymmetrical chests, and I love my WFC Soundwave, this isn't for me.

The concept art is great. I've never seen it before.

It's is funny how third party companies are now evolving their products into full figures. I've enjoyed watching the transformation take place but I would like a company to focus more on weapons.. =P~

I'll buy this figure after I see a review on him. I own two BTS products and while the quality isn't bad, I wouldn't call it amazing. The quality on the SW figure will need to be improved based on my experiences.

Is there really a replacement for microcassette recorders though? Are they replaced by the recorders in some cell phones?... No I still don't think that's quite the proper replacement. Law Enforcement officials still use them right? I feel a little old now. :-(

I liked their Classics prime trailer, but I already own ML Soundwave and WFC Soundwave, so my 1984 line is covered. Reluctantly, pass.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.
