    I have a first release Takara Soundwave and he's starting to fall apart, just standing on the shelf. Seams are starting to grow gaps, and some of the joints creak that never made a sound before. Since Soundwave is my oldest transformer, it's worrying me about the future of my collection.

    feet a bit wide at the bottom unlike any G1 soundwave model/toon before it. still thats the weakest part of takara's design too...and he is missing some sculpting around the knee/lower leg. the back of the leg is less clean too. hopefully the artculation will be better than takara's. so far the sculpting is a mixed bag but mostly worse IMO. see, i like the g1 toy homage hips...but its less toon accurate i guess. the gun is wrong too. hipskirts...unsure about them.

    My take: :yuck 

    I just don't like how plain it looks. Boring, Flat, lifeless, everything I hate about the new MP style. That, the head sculpt looks off, and just doesn't look like the soundwave I know despite walking off the screen.

    BUT! I clad people like it, He'll probably be a great figure, hell transformation, all that good stuff. I just don't like how it looks.

    Sold my MP-13 a few days ago because of money reasons, was reluctant to let go but these new pics are reassuring. Plenty of time to save money before FansToys releases this bad boy.

    I wonder if FT will ever do a Quakewave 2.0. I'd love to see a Shockwave with their more toon accurate approach. TT's is good but the no paint and size leaves much to be desired.

    Legs look better without the side kibble, but that's nowhere near enough to make me replace the TT one.

    I like the more heroic proportion of the TT one.

    I'd be inclined to say yes, but until we see it in color it is really hard to judge what order FT will actually do things.

    Looks good but the face is off, I think it's the eyes, something isn't just right with them!

    I MIGHT be tempted to get those tapes if they release them separately. They edge out the TT ones for me more than Soundwave himself.
