So, they are looking into MP Soundwave? I wonder why they put that out? oh yeah, Acoustic Wave is due out soon. They are saying that to stop people buying it but at the same time they may decide not to release it. So, our choice is a. Wait for TakaraTomy to to confirm it either way or b. Get Acoustic Wave which is 100% confirmed. Sorry Takara, I need pics of a Masterpiece Soundwave (prototype would suffice) before I don't buy Acoustic Wave.

Encore Fort Max, while awesome, would require you to sell your first born to ship at a reasonable price.

The only way Takara will stop people buying Acoustic Wave is to confirm that MP Soundwave is on its way, otherwise AW might be just too tempting.

They've actually had MPSW on the drawing board for quite some time. The last thing HasTak need to worry about are third parties releasing coinciding figures, when it comes down to it - the sheer number of people are going to be buying into a Masterpiece figure rather than a third party equivalent.

I've always had a passing interest in fort max, though the price never agreed with me. Maybe now I should just start saving up, so when if it happens, just get it.

If it has been on the drawing board why are they only now saying they are looking into it? The best way to halt Acoustic Wave, which is nearly on the shelves, is to show MP Soundwave right now. Looking in to making it is like saying "sure we might make it now or we will release one in 20 years but it is coming". The people who want a Masterpiece Soundwave and have wanted one since MP01 first appeared may not wait for an unconfirmed release and go the third party route. I want a Masterpiece Soundwave and I will get the first one that appears on the market. However, the beauty of Transformers is two (or more) display modes. What is the harm in getting both, should they actually make an official one.

While it's rather coincidental that they release this information publically at this time, I've known about this for a good half year. And not just know about it's existance, but what it's going to come with. I'll vouch for the fact that if you are a little bit patient with HasTak, you're going to be happier.

No offence intended, as I wouldn't call you a liar but I will believe it when I see it, see it being the appropriate word. All the cassettes packaged with him would be a high selling point and make me pass on AW.

No offence taken. Whether or not I was alluding to cassettes.. well I'm not going to deny that.

If anyone's capable of doing these two, it's TakaraTomy. The questions are: Will we be able to afford Max? (I doubt it.) and Will their MP Soundwave beat the 3rd party? (Possibly.)

Which would cost more? Acoustic Wave or Soundwave?

The thought of MP Soundwave is simply a :shock: but if Takara does in fact reissue Fort Max I will forgive HasTak for all their BS for the past few years. Hell I'll even forgive the studios for allowing Bay to make those 3 $h*tty films with a fourth on the way. :HEADHURTS: :VEHI:

Wow. Your bad aim is all over the map, huh?

TakaraTomy hasn't done anything wrong in all of this.
Bay and the studios know what works and it's been successful. Billions successful.
Hasbro is the one target you should be concerned with. No one else.

I have a feeling your aim will remain off, though.

And what on Earth does a Fort Max reissue have to do with the rest? I get that you were being hyperbolic, but seriously, this is one ridiculous post.

To add to the list of possibilities, takara said MP-10 could have a Ultra Magnus release with a real armor in the future. :KREMZEEK:

Regarding Fort Max, they said they were planning A Fortress Maximus release in their 30th anniversary (2 more years)... They did not specify the series...

Oh hell yeah I would so buy an Encore Fort Max! I hope it comes with everything though (wasn't the more recent Grand Max missing a bunch of accessories?).

Of course I'm excited about an MP Soundwave too, and Sideswipe for that matter.

While I don't doubt Takara is working on Masterpiece Soundwave. I wouldn't hold my breath on Hasbro bothering to bring in over 1) anytime soon to Takara's release, or 2) in a fashion anyone would call convenient.

Well actually they do need to worry unless we are getting some official pics soon. For if you read for example these messages here, you will notice that many are still sceptical what comes to MP SW. I' "afraid" that many will buy rather this 3rd party toy if it comes first. So Takara should gave us some proofs already. THAT would most likely change some thoughts and it might keep people waiting this one.
