Another update from our awesome site sponsor RobotKingdom, gives us another look at a nifty third party item. Soundwave has taken the form of many modern hand-held items, now it's his time to try being a recorder! Made by the company BTS, we've got more images of the popular Decepticon, albeit in prototype form. Armed to the teeth, and certainly takes after Soundwave, be sure to put your pre-orders in at RobotKingdom.com, if you're interested. Check out the new stuff below!

Are you sure about that?

Looks more like a handheld dictaphone to me.

The proportions on this guy are way off. Elbows are two high and he either has no knees or they're right under his bum.

When they announced this I said they'd never capture the bulkiness of the original art.

I suppose that makes sense as there is no camera... thanks.

Egg. On. Face. I have to admit, I think I was a bit quick to judge. It doesn't look too bad at all. The chest IS a little on the bulky side. Pity I don't have any cassettes.

Meh. These new images aren't making me want to buy him yet. I wish his faceplate was solid w/o that line going straight down. And the MP Megatron legs really are ruining it for me. To top it off, his shoulder cannon is quite tiny. Not much of a weapon. So far, the only notable feature is the accomodation of G1 Cassetticons.

I think it looks like shite. Much like Tracks & Wheeljack the chest is just way too big, except Track and Wheeljack don't suck (too much)

Not good enough.

Very easy "Pass" for me. WFC Soundwave will still be the represented figure on my shelf.

If this were a Hasbro Deluxe figure that retailed for $15, I would be crapping my pants right now.

Instead, it's going to pre-order for close to $100 and it's just not good enough for that price.

Much as I respect their attempt to fit G1 cassettes into him, that huge chest is a major turnoff. And yet, it IS a Soundwave, so I'll probably find my way toward buying it.

This looks really cool. What would really be awesome is a Blaster and Soundwave that is compatible w/ all of the Perfect Effect "cassettes". Make the alt mode some gun/missile battery that can house several of the guns.

I would total be psyched and would be buying this...

...from Target, Walmart, ToysRUs, or even HTS.com. This just doesn't work. With WFC Soundwave still in stores and Music Label still available cheaper (not to mention everything Fansproject has ever done) this thing just isn't worth it.

These new images are a bit better. I'm somewhat drawn, but also somewhat turned off by some design choices too. Now I knew that head and pelvis looked tiny since they made the chest accomodate tapes. But what really knaws at me is that (teeny) head-sculpt falls flat for me. The headsculpt is one of the most important and identifying parts of a character and I don't know who that is supposed to be. Besides being off target, it is really busy.

OK heres my biggest issue: They went so far out of their way to modernize the head, arms, and legs, yet the torso is still this huge big square block. That works for a G1 figure but not for something meant to blend in with your classics collection. To much is being compromised to allow actual G1 cassettes to fit inside this guy. Who the hell displays G1 cassettes with classics figures anyways ??? Thats what Perfect Effect figures are for.

Just not good enough considering it'll probably cost 45 dollars or more.

With enough bitching and negative reaction, can we will this thing out of production?

These new pictures look a little bit better. They really shouldn't show off the rough white protos. Anyway, I'm still not interested because my Music Label Soundwave is good enough for me. =;

im all for a decent 3rd party soundwave but the waist scares me. Think i'll stick to buying music label soundwave instead

So this is what it was supposed to look like.

I've got to agree with CP here, it's not good enough. The bar is set pretty high with third party companies these days and I don't believe there is room for all of them to start making their own figures. Maybe BTS should stick to weapon sets, their last one was pretty cool.
