Courtesy of new to the market third-party company Fans Toys we have some additional prototype images of their Soundwave homage, FT-02 Acoustic Wave. You'll notice there two separate prototypes shown, the smaller one is the original, the larger one features modifications that were suggested by fans. The figure will also include Laserbeak. According to Fans Toys we can expect pre-orders in April or May. As you can see the figure will be approximately Masterpiece scale.

Looks good, I'm still 100% in, I just would hope we'd get a price estimate soon.

Hurry up Takara, I'm going to buy a Masterpiece Soundwave even if it isn't yours. Everything shown makes this a must buy in my opinion.

Okay... I'm in, but what's the SECOND smaller soundwave to the right? Is that a competing 3rd party? >:oP

I believe they have two working prototypes, I've asked about it, but have not received a response yet.

Oh look, it's World's Smallest Soundwave. He's official, didn't stray far from the original engineering, and CAME WITH AN INSANELY TINY RAVAGE...

See, SEE! Smaller Bot, Smaller Cassettes! It's Not THAT HARD :BOOM:

I'm still not comfortable with his sheer height among my classics, but I guess I can put up with it.

I would like to see IGear copy it and make it the perfect voyager size. ;)

The other is the original prototype, they have improved on it with the current version which will be he production model.

As long as the asking price isn't outrageous, I'm ready to preorder now. That is assuming they don't mess up the paint app.

Rumored TT one could kill this before it's even released.

While it's nice in prototype phase the details are awesome, but I think that when colored we'll lose a lot of them.

And is anybody else not feelin' the masterpiece size line anymore? I once collected them, but the amount of transforming I do with them is practically nil, and they take up a lot of shelf space, and do a poor job for the most part of staying in cool poses on the shelf.

I really think very hard about MP puchases (3rd party or legit), and really at this time, it's not for completion, but only particular characters.

Yeah, with the sheer number of seeker and Prime repaints, the Masterpiece line has become pretty stale. It definitely needed Soundwave on the shelf to mix things up. I just wish Takara would have jumped on it first. We shouldn't have to rely on 3rd party companies to finish our toy lines, right? :-?

But yeah, I'd love this guy in full size... and then in Voyage size for my Classics shelf as well. Maybe these guys have that in the works. :-D

I really hope that this has a gritty, slightly weathered look in bot mode rather than a flat one colour blue look.

speaking of size - it would be great if it came with a tiny version of its own altmode. So you can put it into a MP Seeker's cockpit or MP Prime's hands or so.


I guess the correct size to fit into MP Spike's pocket would be too microscopic, though. But a nice thought nevertheless... :-?

Yeah. But given that they are working with prototypes of this quality, I should think we'll get a TFC Herc like quality figure. Hopefully.

The alt mode was better on the first proto...and seeing the profile pose of the new one, looks like he could use a cheeseburger or ten. Too skinny! Yet, this guy's still tempting, but I hope Taks offers up info on theirs if they indeed have plans for one. I think I'd be swayed to go that way instead if it were coming any time soon.

The only thing I genuinely don't like is the "PLAY" sculted in the button. It seems like an odd addition throw into the sculpting that doesn't add much. Sonicron was covered in the stuff, but it was all tampos and everywhere.

Incidently, I'd appreciate a clean looking bot over detailing on the alt mode. And I know I'm not alone, because people were whimpering about Maketoy's Giant figures having a logo.

I agree that the "play" on the button isn't necessary, but I disagree about the detailing. I love all of the little details on the sculpt. In my opinion it makes the MP mold that much more impressive. As long as the paint app is good, this is going to be one amazing Transformer.

Not that sort of detail. I mean the alt-mode specific stuff that in a soundwave's case would just cover him like a bunch of weird tattoos. Mechanical detail in scult and paint is always welcome, since so many evolved from a very boxy look.

On the last 2 pictures, does anyone know which Laserbeaks and Ravages are in the MP's chest? Perhaps they are the MP cassettes they are releasing. :D
