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. Click here to read the full review.

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
Sorry man, I hope I didnt pour salt on an old wound. That had to have sucked.
Sure, why not?
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
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!
