New third-party Fans Toys dropped by with some new prototype images of their upcoming Soundwave homage, FT-02 Acoustic Wave. As you can see in the images below the figure should fit in nicely on your Maserpiece shelf and sport good articulation.

My my my, I want this. Unless Takara springs an official Soundwave, which is unlikely, I will be adding this to my collection. Seeing it next to the original prototype shows just how far it has evolved and what I like what I see.

I like them both, but I think I might like the older one a little more, cause he has an ankle tilt, and he's more accurate to the cartoon since he's got less detail, I do like the slenderness of the newer one, and his mean knee articulation, but his weapons look just a little small, also like I said, less detail would be a little more show-accurate.

i absolutely agree with all three of you. i'd love it takara had produced one that looks this incredible.

i too hope it doesn't cost too too much.

anyways, soundwave wasn't always my favorite character, he was definitely one of them, but his design was definitely one of my favorites. perfect proportions, beautiful head, super kick ass accessories. and his voice in the show.. wow, one of my absolute favorite cartoon voices.

excellent work.

i just REALLY REALLY hope that he's colored to be cartoon accurate rather than toy accurate.

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.

Do you mean this Blaster?

This was revealed at the same time as Soundwave so it is probably safe to assume, this is only a prototype and the actual toy will look a little different.

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.

yeah that looks incredible too. those can also be seen from page 1 of this thread.

i would love to have both of them. but if they're pricey.. i can live with just soundwave.

does anyone know if soundwave will come with masterpiece cassettes? (has that already been asked about in this thread?, i apologize for my extreme laziness if so)

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

there should be. if not, another third party company will probably make a set of them.

that's true.

either way.. it'll still be awesome.

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

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:

Got to admit, this is looking pretty awesome.

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.
