Seems like every time you turn around these days a new third-party company is throwing their hat in the ring. Courtesy of our colleagues across the pond, FMH, we have images of a new unofficial MP styled Soundwave from a previously unheard of third-party company calling themselves Fans Toys. Check out the mirrored prototype images below.

Update: TFW2005 member fabexmax has uploaded images of MP style Blaster that appears remarkably similar to the Fans Toys Soundwave. fabexmax's images have also been mirrored below.

Suddenly, Soundwave.


Seriously, what's with all of the great toys coming out of no where all of a sudden!?

Nooooooooooooooooo! It looks beautiful! And I know I likely wouldn't be able to afford it. This is exactly what I've been wanting from HasTak for a long time! Him or Galvatron anyway...

I also feel like the 3rd Party market is getting way too saturated. We need to put them all in a ring and thin them out, Gladiator-style. :lol: Although, I suppose while the number of 3rd Party stuff that gets announced is high, less of them actually make it to the production stage.

Looks awesome!

Now all we need to do is wait for iGear or Maketoys to announce the exact same project.

Oh hai there you'll be part of my collection.
It's getting kind of pathetic how HasTak are constantly outdone by little fan owned companies.

This is good! Let the 3rd party companies steal their income and force them to offer us what we want.I have City Commander, Arcee, Rodimus, Springer, Kup (with the right head), and Optimus (faith leader) all from 3rd party companies and haven't had a complaint yet. I also have Laser and Buzzer, piledrivers for G1 Frenzy/Rumble, a war axe for WFC optimus, all the Crazy Devy devastator add ons. Not a single problem from any of them. Hasbro will have to take notice of the 3rd party success and answer it. Most likely from litigations, but it should change the market up nicely for us.

I really want this Soundwave now too!

That looks awesome!

It is surprising, given how simnplistic Soundwave's tranformation is and how popular the character is that a 3rd party has beaten Takara/Hasbro to producing an MP Soundwave.

I like it, I really like it. I hope they can work in some more details, just to try to reduce his blocky appearance. I know Soundwave was blocky but they could sculpt in some more panels here and there to break it up. Would look less like an upscaled toy then.

Im very happy all of a sudden.

so this looks good, but it is just scaled up, with the benefit of better articulation. I would love to see some aspect of the transformation being different from the G1 mold, or some gimmicks, something we appreciate in the "masterpiece" lines. This is more like the custom masterpiece soundwaves built by upgrading a G1 you find so often on ebay. I like it, but they better not want $100 bucks for it.

Maybe you don't mess with perfection though.

Now that is sweet.

Going to pick this one up Seibs or still a no go on the third party train.

I do hope they can figure out a way to get him to grip his rifle tighter. I don't like how it looks all Rodimus Prime-y the way it dangles limpt wrist.

How do these people get away with this stuff? I thought there were laws in place about things that looked like trademarked characters.

It's almost like different countries have different laws.

This will be mine, just like every other Soundwave mold.
