    If they would actually go ahead and make Voyager sized Acoustic Wave then I would like for them to tweak the mold a bit. It still has a few improvements I would like to see made.

    There's a Radicon that makes tiny minions for FOC Soundwave. I think a professional could do them in a larger (voyager) scale.

    I would love either Voyager or scaled to Hegemon. As much as I am anticipating MP Soundwave (yet I have not pre-orderd him, waiting for comp pics), I would order a CHUG-scaled Acoustic Wave today and not think twice about it.

    I preorder mp soundwave but I love this soundwave too.I think if after quakewave fanstoys Should release their version of blaster.Maybe the could release blaster and sell it for like 300.00 and include soundwave free.I feel that way they could still make their money back on this mold.

    I'd rather FT move ahead with its Blaster. I already preordered the Shockwave, and personally, I don't need a million versions of one character (don't need a smaller Soundwave when I'm already getting the Masterpiece version). I'd rather have only one ultimate version of each character.

    I'd prefer deluxe at this point actually, just to get a good G1 Soundwave in the different sizes.

    There already is a good, deluxe sized, G1 Soundwave. Music Label Soundwave.

    So... yeah. Having MP-13 now, they made the right call pulling the plug. They're not going to be able to compete with that. MP-13 is pretty much flawless (except for the batteries in tape deck mode).

    And as much as I would want a Voyager-sized version of this, if it can't fit tapes... what's the point? At that point, you may as well get FoC Soundwave.

    But yeah, comparing this to MP-13, I'm surprised at how good it still looks. The calves look better on MP-13, and I like the toy-accurate feet, but MP-13's tape deck mode looks better from the front and has a better head and weapons.

    I think going for a Blaster is the best call. Include a Ramhorn. I doubt Takara's going to be making a Blaster anytime soon at all so it should be pretty safe.

    I still can't believe Quakewave still came out at the same time as MP Soundwave and was CHEAPER. That's... weird.

    I'd have to disagree. I just sold my Soundwave--the hips were way too tight, and the leg panels were so small and fragile looking and feeling.

    Barring the tight collapses on the legs, FT's Shockwave is more what I want as far as sturdiness and simplicity of design.

    Not saying that FT's Soundwave would have turned out as well as the Shockwave, but I was definitely not a fan of MP-13.

    If nothing else, I bet the hands were better designed.

    Just noticed that FT Laserbeak also had built-in cannons. TT was watching this closer than we thought.

    That integration is mostly responsible, I think, for there being no push back when people say that HasTak intentionally sniped FT for their infringement.

    Surprised we haven't heard about an official Blaster or Shockwave yet.
