FansToys FT-03 Quake Wave Color Prototype Photos

Posted on 01-03-2013 at 08:17 PM by process under 3rd Party Unlicensed
quakewave4
Third party group FansToys has released new prototype photos of their Generation 1 Shockwave homage, Quake Wave. This Masterpiece-scaled figure is an extremely close representation of everyone's favorite Decepticon cyclops, down to his iconic yellow eye, laser cannon arm, and most importantly, rubber hose.

While we do not yet have any concrete release information, it is rumored that this figure will be shipping sometime in Q1 2013, and retail for around $150.

Again, please remember that this is a third-party product not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara.

Very interesting...I like the cartoon color better. Any time frame and pricing info?

Huh, that's a clever way of beefing up his legs, while simultaneously reducing the massive backpack of the original toy. Looks pretty darned good.
ORIO
Empurata is a bitch.

This is intended to be masterpiece scaled correct?
xtommytmoshx
oooo this is tight
beangrower
Sweet. they need to get this out soon before has/tak step in again.
zy80
woah! Nice, would love it in G1 cartoon colors with its eye in yellow

Hope the material for the tubing will not disintegrate in the long run too
mx-01 archon
Also looks like the gunbarrel collapses to form the backpack. Decent way of handling that piece.

Hoping this is a large size deluxe fig if it is i,m all over it.

It's Masterpiece-scaled, like their cancelled Soundwave figure.

There's no way you're going to get articulated hands on a Deluxe figure.
jbot
Awesome! Now paste this on the front of every Transformers news site, and hopefully it will force Takara to reveal their MP Shockwave. Hey, it worked last time!
TigerBlade
Now I know what MP18 (or is it 17?) will be!

Looks like an LED eye, and by the drawing his gun hand, will light up too.....that's awesome! Also love how the barrel and legs are formed......although if I was to be really picky cartoon Shockwave has the hose under his forearm with Decepticon insiginia on the upper forearm. Now we just need a decent sized Megs to complete the big four 'cons.

DKR7 is gonna explode!!

I have a feeling after the Soundwave incident this is close.......especially looking at the prototype.....that thing looks like it just needs correct colours to be released.
Coltello
G1 toy colorway for sure. I need this along with Soundwave ASAP.
Sup3hobo
Wow looking good so far. How far along are they with this project as it looks like an injection plastic and diecast prototype? Sign me up for a g1 colored version.
nobudius
Well, well, well...

The transformation looks quite clever. Funny how some of us (including me) tend to think this will get Takara's ball rolling for MP Shockwave.

I kinda like the hose placement as it is here, because it makes it a more prominent part of his forearm, rather than tucked away out-of-sight.

Better be quick about releasing it. I have a feeling we'll be seeing a new Takara MP sooner than we'd expected.
SCPrime
so this is what is meant by fan toys will be back? Nice. I will definitely keep an eye on this.

Sounds like a great deal considering how much MP13 is going for. How's the quality of it though? Up to Takara's quality? And any comparison pictures?

Inb4 cancelled... ?
Afterburner
Looking pretty good.
zy80
Hope there's no delay, because there's the Chinese New Year holidays in Feb which I guess would cause some shipping delays.
Detroa
It looks amazing.

Tell me it's at least as big as MP-13 and not bigger than MP-10 then you'll have my money.

EDIT: oh and cartoon colors for me.

EDIT2: looks like the barrel partsforms, it would have been better if it didn't but it still looks like an awesome figure.

Awesome, I can't wait for the release.
Wyvern
G1 cartoon purple please... and are there pictures posted? I can't see them if there are....
Timesynch
So bought (pending reviews of the quality, of course). How will this be available for purchase? Through the normal e-tailers like BBTS and RobotKingdom?

Does he have a light up eye/gun hand?

I'd vote cartoon colours too.

I can do without the light up eye. Light up hand would be cool though. But not necessary. Clear purple plastic is fine.

I only ask as the pictures indicate they do. In the blue prototype pic the eye looks like an LED and in the purple cgi both the eye and gun hand are lit. Just after confirmation (or not) but I personally think they'd be awesome.....especially if the eye blinks like he is talking!

Just saw the pics. Had to log on via my phone since for some reason my computer isn't loading the pictures..

The only thing I'd complain about the LEDs is the color of the eye. I'd want it to be yellow..
Impactor1106
Very cool looking, wish it was going to be voyager sized to go with Hegemon. That said, I am very happy for all you MP collectors, this will be a nice addition.
jedijoe
wow NICE!!!

glad to see our fav G1 toys are all getting the proper treatment FINALLY ...in one way or another

I absolutely LOVE 3rd party, im sorry but hands down it has improved this hobby in EVERY way. Competition breeds innovation.

3rd party keeps HasTak on their toes! Keep up with teh fans wants or lose profit!

actual, PROPER transforming, PROPER articulated ORIGINAL G1 figures.... its like my childhood dreams finally coming true
CyclonuS_ZerO
Uhhh yes, I'll take one of these please!
Sammael
Looks pretty good, but they better get it out of production quickly or Takara will beat them to their game as before...

And the eye MUST be yellow.
deathsheadII

sure it will be yellow in final product. This is just a manufacturer sample.

So does anyone know how this transforms? Ie do both legs form the handle which will then be thicker than on g1 shockwave, and if so where does the backpack come from to given that the gunbarrel is now in that position? And as for gunbarrel itself, does it simply peg onto the back?
Z005WFT
Can't wait I think all 3rd party toys should employ the plastic Hegemon is using, real sturdy. I hope this Shockwave is well built because it's looks good. Cartoon colors for me as well.
