Many thanks to Fans Toys who have sent us some new image for their FT-03 Quake Wave project. The new images show us the production details of the robot and his alternate gun mode. Check out the details on this guy that is being offered to compliment the Masterpiece scale action figures. The FT-03 Quick Wave figure is slated for release in February 2013 for $150 USD. Check out the images below for more details on the new release.

They still apply to the arguement :-P
Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I was told, the iGear seekers were retooled KOs of the official toys. Not much R&D needed for that.
Not true, the iGear Seekers were right around $100 a piece, which is approximately the same as it would be for a Takara release, minus the Takara add-on's
I believe you're right. I've never seen another third party toy costing as much as its official counterparts. $150 for this would definitely be worth it.
Exactly. this is, to my knowledge, the first time a 3rd party TF costs almost the exact same as its official counterparts. that alone is reason enough for me to buy it plus i love shocky lol
Let's be honest here. $150 is not bad considering MP Optimus Prime is now going for $130 on the TRU website. And to get Takara MP versions, you're paying big money as well.
i'll just wait for the Takara one. When that will be... who knows.
still buying it
I guess that's just what these things cost huh. Oh boy.
Why didn't someone do this before? The EX04 Dinokong from Zeta is a Giant Combiner figure made up from five dinosaur robots in a somewhat darker gray and gold style color theme that really is more than meets the eyes. Included with this combiner set are 5 bladed weapons in red and black to offer another level of accenting. The Zeta pre-order is estimated to arrive July 2018 for a price of $349.99 USD. Read on to see the images and more details.
Generation Toy has a prototype for something actually pretty interesting in the increasingly tried-and-tired unofficial Masterpiece game. GT-11 RedBull, as seen in photos from the Weibo page of Chaos_龙飞, is a take on Sideswipe sized similarly to the Masterpiece Autobot cars, but instead of a Lamborghini, its alternate mode is a robotic bull. This is based at least somewhat on some recently popular art of G1 characters with robotic animal alt modes, and if this is an indication, the design seems to translate to 3D quite well. Check out the mirrored images below.
Mastermind Creations shared a few photos of their display at Cyber City Con, which had samples of some upcoming products. Azalea falls under the Ocular Max branding, and is a Masterpiece-style Arcee, offering its particular take on the familiar and now often-repeated G1 Arcee design. Also seen was Foxwire which will be part of the Reformatted series. This represents The Pet, as seen among the Decepticon Justice Division in select issues of More Than Meets The Eye. No release date or other details are available for these items at this time, but you can check out the display photos below!
