Review: BTS-04 Sonicron Figure
Blitzwing - Sunday, July 10, 2011


After seeing Dark of the Moon, some people are likely crying "FOUL!" regarding Soundwave's alt mode. The master of Decepticon espionage masquerading as THAT? Can't be. If you need some throwback via a modern interpretation, BTS has released their BTS-04 Sonicron figure that gives us a look on what Soundwave might have resembled had he followed in his G1 footsteps.

Cool! All my stuff is packed and ready for my move to NOLA but afterwards I'll get into that once I start buying again. Granted I still need a job down there first

So if I bought a 3rd party product and sent it to you, you would review it and then send it back?

I sold all my G1 swag several years back to fund a move.

Blitz, did I read this right? "Since I do not own any G1 figures, I can't attest as to whether a G1 cassette-bot will fit." Do you really not have any G1 toys, or did you mean cassettes?

Giant looking chest and his high heels is what turns me off. I'll get one but it is a very low priority on my list. Has Tformers always been doing 3rd party reviews? I don't remember any. But at any rate I think its awesome.

His proportions give him a manga/anime look which makes him more appealing to me. Unfortunately, I don't really do 3rd party figures and this one won't change that trend.

I guess it's pretty nice, but I don't need to buy one either. Maybe I'll succumb to temptation when some store puts it on sale.

He does for the most part look like G1 Soundwave, though the main thing that keeps me from buying him is his oversized chest with an itty bitty waist. Other then that, he looks awesome

More Third Party News
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of fun stuff going on this week! We announce the winners of our Twitter contest, we are giving away Titans Return Arcee and The Last Knight Valvotron! The voice cast for Power of the Prime was announced! We share our thoughts! Plus we speculate on rumored upcoming Transformers assortments. Also, there's a ton of other news this week including a heavy third party week, with new Combaticons, Aerialbots, and upgrade parts. We talk about the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Ironhide, new photos of Volcanicus and much, much more! 


Coming from Weibo, we have some grey prototype images showing MechPlanet's small-scale Optimus Prime-alike. HS02 seems to be called "Mini Lider" and while the photo quality for many of these isn't great, it seems to be a decent representation of the character design. The photos we have show an energon axe and rifle, plus flip up panels on the forearm in a similar manner to the pop-up communicator screen from the Masterpiece. The chest is also conspicuously hinged, which probably means it has a matrix and storage space for it. You can find all these photos mirrored below!
We recently saw an unofficial, non-transforming, high detail action figure representing Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime by Iron Warrior. Iron Warrior has just shown off another upcoming figure of the same type, this one called "Strife 07" and based on Brawl from the 2007 Transformers movie. This figure likewise does not transform, but seems to focus on sculpt detail and articulation more. Unfortunately the provided photos don't represent the scale of the figure well, so it's unclear at this point whether Brawl will be appropriately large. You can check out the mirrored images below.
From Mastermind Creations, Collisus joins the Reformatted line. Standing about 8 inches in robot mode, Collisus features a unique paint application and is able to transform into a battle tank vehicle. This figure comes armed with a pair of cannon blasters that can be deployed in both robot and vehicle mode. The figure slated for release in April of 2019 for about $110 USD.
Zeta Toys still has a bit to offer us today. Direct from their Weibo we have two images of Armageddon, their unofficial Bruticus shown as a color testshot. The individual components are all represented in their respective colors, though the add-ons for the combined form look like they may still be works in progress - at least lacking some finishing paint details if not other color changes. The images themselves say that this is not necessarily a final deco for the assembled whole, but it certainly gets the idea across! Check out both photos mirrored below.
