Unofficial MP Soundwave in Development

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

like with the new MP prime, his cod piece and upper thighs should be white, not grey.. but oh well, i hope they use some white on this soundwave.


The problem with white on the new design.... it might look like a diaper ala Titanium Soundwave. Grey might be better in the long run.


that's true.

either way.. it'll still be awesome.

plus.. i could always paint it white if it bothered me that much.

Yes, there will be cassettes. It will come with Laserbeak with hints at Ravage, Rumble and Frenzy.

thank you!

my bad.. when i read that news story for some reason my mind tied those into the ratbat and ravage that we saw from BTS (i think i need some sleep, cause that makes no sense, i have no idea why i would think that lol)

i'm totally sold.

this is something that takara should've done a while ago. not to mention it's a mold they could get a repaint out of.. and add more cassettes to jock up the price a bit. oh well.

Repaint potential for the molds is very high.

This was posted by kiyoshioni on tfw2005:

Yeah, from those three molds, we can at least get:

Laserbeak Mold = Garboil, Sundor, SG Buzzsaw/Laserbeak
Ravage Mold = Stripes, Howlback, Glit, Blackcat, Cheetor, Tigatron, Catscan
Frenzy Mold = SG Frenzy/Rumble, Enemy, Playback, Whitenoise

Broken up into packs:

Normal Set - Ravage/Frenzy/Rumble/Buzzsaw
E-Hobby Set - Howlback/Glit/Garboil/Sundor
Shattered Glass Set - SG Buzzsaw/SGLaserbeak/SG Frenzy/SG Rumble
Heroes Set - Playback/Whitenoise/Catscan/Blackcat
Beast Set - Cheetor/Tigatron
Encore Set - Stripes/Enemy


I then posted this over on the TFW2005 board

That's just the tapes. Soundwave himself can be reprinted into Soundblaster, Marvel colour Soundwave, toy colour Soundwave and Shattered Glass Soundwave. My my my, the potential is amazing.


That is just fan speculation of course but I would buy all of them, assuming quality was good of course. Of course that is just the repaints based on the teased molds. There are the potentials for other molds based on Ratbat (repaint into Wingthing), Beastbox and squawktalk, Overkill and Slugfest. Throw in Shattered Glass repaints and the company could live off this mold for years. Very intelligent of Takara not to go down the Masterpiece Soundwave road :HEADHURTS:

I agree, the potential here is enormous.

I think its clear fans are okay with redecos of Soundwave and his crew, I know I am.

This should have been done already, but I'm 100% in on anything they can come up with. I would love, LOVE revamped, better molds of the cassettes, especially Squawk talk, Beast Box and Overkill and Slugfest. I truly do commend BTS for their attempts, even though I know some people are complaining about Ravage and Ratbat (I think they look quite good though and already pre-ordered them).

There's a lot to be done in the realm of G1 revisits, even for Tak/Has. If they're redoing the Combaticons, why not the Protectobots?

Nothing wrong with that!
I like elements of both though. The newer more detailed one is a respectful highly detailed "classics" style upgrade while the earlier version is almost 100% G1.

Either way....i like em both. Now lets get this thing produced already!! Soundwave should have been done a long time ago.

Wait, what's FT-02? The tapes alone? Because that'd be great, actually.

Well, I must say, Soundwave looks AMAZING! Very tempting to get.

but then it wouldn't be masterpiece lol. plus, isn't the device label soundwave a voyager sized figure? i would say that he is your best bet to fit in your classics-generations collection.

i'm psyched.

all we need is for takara to produce a brand new megatron. something that's in scale with everyone else.

Nice find! :D I'm totally digging that cassette deck mode, it looks so much more flush than the older one. Also, the back is showing obvious battery weapon storage. There's a plus :APPLAUSE:

All over this, even if Takara has one in the pipeline (Faith Leader still has a place in my collection even after purchasing MP-10; I figure this will be no different).

Devestator, check.
Soundwave, check.

I stopped collecting the MP line because of scale. I dont have enough coffee tables for stand alone figures that will never be a complete collection. Also, Im sick and tired of every classics style soundwave being made to hold G1 cassettes. I want something a bit smaller that can stand side by side with the perfect effect series. Right now I use United WFC Soundwave.

It might be more because of the tapes, none of which we've seen models of other than Laserbeak/Buzzsaw.

Actually can anyone confirm which tape that is inside the bay there in the one photo? I was pretty sure it was Ratbat, but the colors are all wrong...and I'm wary whether or not G1 tapes are going to work right with him before I pull the trigger on an aforementioned Ratbat...

It's probably coming soon, the way 3rd parties are now. I'm wondering when we're going to hear more from Igears voyager classics Ironhide and Ratchet, and the Voyager Trailbreaker, "Big Road."

Ummm.....I'm sorry, I need this statement clarified. You're sick of the characters most defining and popular feature being implemented into his figures? Wouldn't that be like saying "I'm sick of the Constructicons always being construction vehicles..."?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the info on MP Soundwave is good, comes from the same source that told us about the last MPs starting with Rodimus.

The REAL test is whether he can fit Classics Ravage in there. Thanks to the tail he's pretty tough to fit in new TF players. Sonicron won't work thanks to those nibs, and DL Blaster also has a tough time.

iGear's is also somewhat of a question since it has some rather thick parts.

Still ... I love the G1 compatability! Damn ... another TF I want. Does this go on the list? Oh, decisions, decisions ...

Oh wow, that's amazing. I can honestly say this is the first 3rd Party product in awhile that I can say I really want. I really hope it ends up being fairly affordable. Under $150 would be great. As for the colors, I'm okay if they do the cartoon scheme, as long as the blue isn't too light. But so far it just looks amazing. So much detail, the head sculpt is spot-on. Absolutely stunning. :APPLAUSE:
