    Is there another one that's not on this list? I saw one with a weird backpack on a shelf one time.

    Hello everyone. I've done some searching but I'm hoping someone can clear it up for me 100%

    I want to know how many different quakewaves there were.

    I know there's the original, the reissue, the toy color, the grey, and the clear. Is that it?

    I agree with this, which is why Quakewave is still the Shockwave in my collection. That being said, Quakewave is starting to get quite dated. The problem is that the Takara version just isn't that good, and falls short in a variety of ways (like being short...haha). Now that we've seen recent updates like Acoustic Wave and Tesla 2.0, I really think a reshelled Quakewave 2.0 could be amazing. Quakewave 2.0 could be largely the same figure, but with remolded external parts to make it more curvy and toon accurate, especially below the waist. I suppose increased articulation would also be good, but I'm more focused on an easy upgrade with the same size and bulk, that simply improves the look and brings it in line with more recent figures. Also do it in the darker toy version colors, or find a happy medium that is very toon.

    No clear Quakewave makes you a casual.

    QuakeBlast answered all the questions QW left hanging for me, but I would be very open to another 3P try on the character; especially one that brings back sound along with light.

    Only FT figure I still have. Very solid, and actually fun to mess with and transform.

    Hey all!!

    Was fortunate enough to snag a new FT-03T off eBay recently, was just curious if anyone had line of sight on the hose & led upgrade that had been going around before? Im assuming that kit probably isn’t produced any longer? Also, if anyone has any sets of the earlier release solid color hands they’d part with, I’d be interested in a set!

    Thanks all! Can’t wait to get this thing unboxed!

    If anyone is interested, Hafiz Zul on Facebook made some custom parts for this guy and the 3rd party Shockwaves. He only takes orders from certain people (and I believe only in bulk), and I have a contact, so if anyone is interested, let me know. I'm in the US, but as long as you pay for shipping (and the item of course), I'll ship it to you. Let me know if anyone is interested. I'm not sure of pricing, but I'll find out.

    He also makes lots of other stuff. Check out his Facebook page.

    These are the other ones that caught my eye:
    MP52/ DS01 Starscream corronation gear
    Studio Cell (Unicron) sharp wing tips, dead eyes head
    MP51 Arcee replacement chest
    Badcube Steamroll/ Recon (Sideswipe/ Red Alert) crotch piece (transformable) and leg fillers
    Starscream throne

    There's a set of "boots" available on shapeways for MP Shockwave that bulk out his feet and add some extra height. Not as nice as the sets pictured above and they need painting, but they do help him scale better with the newer bots like acoustic wave and the DS seekers.

    I can make the hose or head "light" kit if you're interested. I would need to know what kind of hose you want(solid or segmented) and also what kind and color of LED(solid or blinking, and any color you choose.)

    If anyone is interested now or in the future, I can make the head LED upgrade to blinking or non blinking in any color. Also I can make the hose in segmented or non segmented. Also, if anyone has a head that has a broken wire or bad LED or anything that isn't working, I do electrical repairs for all transformers to get them working again. I'm an engineer and have a decent soldering rig with magnification. Usually repairing PS3 and PS4 and other electronics but i love to help the transformers community.
