    Operating word -'looking into'. The same they said for many other stuffs as well. At this point still up in the air whether they will be doing it or not.

    If they look into making Encore Fort Max, I will look into buying him.

    Fort Max would be instant buy as soon as the pre-order went up. If they do get around to Soundwave, I just hope it is a tape player and not some updated homage.

    Still good to know it's gone from a "noooooooooooooooo" with their fingers in their ears every time we ask to a "MAYBE, OKAY? SHUT UP ABOUT IT."

    They would have been wise to have a sketch of MP SW ready by now. To counter FansToys' "Acoustic Wave". (or Autistic Wave as I always misread it)

    Bit late to bother with Soundwave now someone else has beat them too it.

    I think more new mould retro style premium 1986 Movie Characters is a better way to go.

    I would like to see a Fort Max if only so I could put my original back in its box and still have one for display.

    Exactly. I love it if this is HasTak's way of going after third parties, but they won't win anything if they keep falling behind. I realize the "machine" of takara takes a lot more time to get things done (paperwork, finances, lobbying, focus testing etc etc), but they really should hurry up and announce something that no 3rd party is working on.
    Which I guess they did with Sideswipe, but I mean some of the bigger characters.

    If they announced today, along with sketches or something, that they were working on Soundwave and he will be MP13, I'd go for that rather than FT. now it's too little, too late.

    I think it's more to do with the Lambo license. This opens up Sunstreaker and Red Alert at the very least. Sure, they aren't big big characters but they'll get their moneys worth out of it.

    Oh and that size is perfect....for me at least :D
