    So, what's the differance between the Igear autoscout and the TFC version?

    Nuts that two seperate fan companies both came up with the same idea

    And an obscure idea to boot.

    I like the alt mode on this one much better.

    There's some minor differences in looks and transformation between the two (I think I like the TFClub one a little better personally), but the major difference is the IGear one doesn't require one to buy a whole set of stuff you may or may not want just to get it.

    I doubt I'd buy either due to what prices they may have, but I also must ask... What's the difference exactly? Other than transformation. I sure hope there's at least a difference there.

    There is a difference in the transformation, especially the back wheel area.

    Strange, I remember doing some Designs for one of these companies to assist them in the Development in "Their" Autoscout design, I also designed a sticker set for it.

    I believe the company was called Impossible Toys.

    What ever happened to their Autoscout? :( 

    I really hope by me posting the Art I did on my DeviantART Page a long time ago had nothing to to with this BS, theres nothing worse than a thief claiming they created the concept for a toy when they really didn't. :( 

    Just in case curiosity gets the better of folks...

    THIS was what I was told to create by Impossible Toys.

    and my original proposed design can be seen HERE with a close up of the cassette mode HERE

    I prefer IMPOSSIBLE TOYS version and prototype(which I am not allowed to post, sorry) over these other 2 any day of the week, and I really hope to see it get made. and at least this version was Created to fit inside the original G1 soundwave's chest.

    Well to be fair, the design is pretty simplistic and was already laid out in fairly good detail via the original cartoon appearance. Not hard to believe that numerous people would all just copy the cartoon template and call it their own.

    Looks pretty cool. Not sure if it's cool enough to buy though. Have we seen price info for this version yet?

    BTW Shin Densetsu should edit the front page entry, since the i-gear autoscout and TF Club autoscout are different.

    I'm happy to say I will never buy either of these - frankly, even if they came out as low as £10 I'd consider it a ripoff. :)

    i may just get both. different enough that one could be re-painted or something. The fact that the iGear one has solid cassette spools, means that it will not fit into a case along with the rest, for those of us who display our tapes in the cases.
