Thanks to dalianjj who has posted news of a new Third part rendition of the The prototype of G1 cartoon soundwave character is coming out way. This is Fans-toys studio product, FT-02. It is just a prototype, the final version will come later. Any advice will be appreciated. See the images and post your comments after the jump.
With all the swing-out panels that make Blaster's altmode smoother, I'm surprised there aren't panels that swing down from his upper arm to cover his elbow joints.
I would so buy both a MP Soundwave and MP Blaster if they fell within the same price range of the MP Conehead seekers and Exgraver figures.
Updated cassettes for sure! Those could be a whole set by themselves though. :drool
Do you release Soundwave in 2012 or later? Or are you planing in releasing him in 2011?
I love it! In my eyes it's not necessary to change anything - it just looks perfect as it is now!
I'm not worried about the quality...the trailer was great, so this will turn out great, too!
well, for those who worried about the platic quality, plz see FT-01 the g1 style 20th/mp op trailer.
Updated cassettes are cool but being practical about it, I dont think we'll see any. Not at least until way after Soundwave and Blaster release.
I was thinking the same, but a Steeljaw prototype has just popped up today! (along with a rather poor Kup and Scourge)
Updated cassettes are cool but being practical about it, I dont think we'll see any. Not at least until way after Soundwave and Blaster release. My biggest concern would be plastic quality and paint apps. If this has shitty plastic and I pay $$$ for it I'll be pissed. If it has more then one sticker, I'll be pissed. The only sticker I want on Soundwave is the Con logo on his chest. Paint everything else on.
If you own the Cassette Autobot Dinos then its your duty to post pics. There aren't too many pictures of those guys out there. :P
If and when these come out i'll probably jump all over that Blaster. He looks excellent to me. Plus he hasn't got anywhere near a quarter of the love Soundwave has had over the years in toy incarnations.
Soundwave looks great too but i'm just not as pumped on him. I'll get him if the price is right.
The biggest feature for me with these guys is that i have almost every cassette bot there is and and a big ass Soundwave would interact really well with the cassettes. Blaster is already in scale with his cassettes in my opinion but was in desperate need of this MP treatment. It's a great choice. The more i look at him the more i love that bot mode too.....it's fantastic!
Blaster just has the better alt mode to me. Well not necessarily better per say, but different in a good way. He has a great aesthetic for a ghetto blaster. Just looks fun. His speakers are a bit small in alt mode though.
Very impressive work. I look forward to more details, oncluding pricing on these figures.
And if you dont mind I have a few suggestions that I'm sure would make a lot of us fans very happy people
1) Updated cassette bots. Rumble has to be Blue and Frenzy Black/Red though.
2) These figures look absolutely amazing, but please for the love of Primus, DO NOT make it out of the same materials as companies like Igear use for their figures. If you dont already know. Igear toys tend to break quite easily, due to inferior plastic
3)Nice price, please be gentle with the pricing :thumb
4) Thinking more about it, maybe add one cassette bot into this set. I know it sounds a bit daft, but I'm sure you'd make even more sales if Soundwave or Blaster have a partner sold with them
Anyways these are just polite suggestions. Great looking figures and I really hope they get a release
Oh how I want that... but would love a classics scaled one too :\
Please keep the price around masterpiece prices ($60 ish)...
