count me in on this one right here. also with this soundwave being around the same size as megs give or take a few. he will scale great with MFT blaster so that is a double win.
will he actually scale with him? I would have imagined hes too small cus its magic square
well it looks to be around primes height or a shade smaller. but that is definitely fudgeable in my books especially if you consider how great he looks.
but if MFT knocks this guy off or improves their other one. i will send him packing for the updated version.
I personally hate MFT for trying to force people to adhere to their specific, incompatible “scale”
You think magic square is going to make a soundwave that scales with MFT blaster and not scale with their own blaster/twincast?
Hot soldiers scales well with most MFT, and I’ve had various HS soundwave color variants with my mister moon blaster, but have so many renditions of blaster & soundwave, that I’ll likely pick this up too.
If MS Soundwave is almost as tall as MS Megatron (who’s as tall as MS Prime), then yes MS Soundwave will be a good bit taller than MS Blaster.
In the pictures we’ve seen MS Soundwave is almost as tall as MS Megatron.
Edit: but he’ll still be shorter than MFT Blaster.
Darn, I thought a new thread would mean new pictures or info, haha.
Definitely keeping an eye on this guy; any MST release has my attention at this point, and those micro-scale cassettes are just too tiny to resist.
i dont think they are doing it intentionally per se. but this bot does not appear to be the same size as MS blaster. the fact that he can work with MFT blaster can be chalked up as just a happy coincidence.
from the outside looking in it looks like MS didnt care too much about scale when they first came out. they were more concerned about just dropping bots that looked really cool. there really was no rhyme or reasoning to their sizes outside of the basic theory that mini bots are smaller than magnus.
this was kind of the same situation IF had when they burst onto the world and created the legends scene as we know it.
but just like everyone else these days. there appears to be a scale unification that started with MS prime and on.
the new decepticons definitely have a clear trajectory moving forward.
since we know MS megs is the same size as prime. we can use those two known heights to help piece together a clearer picture. if you look at it that way the 2 MS communication officers arent even close in height.
unless this pic of megs and soundwave has been shopped or they decide to shrink him down. soundwave is clearly larger than blaster in all aspects. or he would be coming up to the belly of megatron like blaster does to prime.
You can see part of Soundwave in the bottom right here
man this guy right here is on that next level as far as legends go. everything about him is perfect from his stance to his minions. i am definitely going to pick this guy and his crew up as soon as they drop.
I do appreciate that Magic Square has been clear they intend to make all of his main minions. DX9, MFT and IF have done a handful and just kinda of forgot about the rest. Though to be fair they might have been unable to reproduce some characters at that size. But IF's didn't even turn into cassettes and they skipped most of them.
Wowee that Soundwave is incredible. I can't wait to replace my DX9 one with it.
Their Frumble mold's to die for too, despite some artistic liberties. Ravage is a perfect update to DX9's attempt. Laserbeak's a great adaptation of the MP options, and it's good to see a more screen-accurate Ratbat option, for this scale. I think Autoscout's the weakest of the bunch that we can see.
I'm curious if Soundwave is going to be a pricey package, or if they'll do the tapes in separate sets. They're too complex to be costless throw ins.
I'm so down with this... will immediately replace my Pocket toys version.
Honestly, I'd be fine with a price tag around $60 given that this is even better than the official MP imo
Please stop telling people how much you'd like to overpay for things. I gotta agree with the more paranoid people here. You keep talking about how you'd pay over asking price and that price will surely meet the demand.
A few more:
$60 is fine, MS Optimus is around $80
$60 nz is about about $40 of your US 'dollars'
Looks really nice. But I don’t remember Soundwave ever being that bright a blue? He was always pretty dark in the cartoon, more of the MP-13 colour.
