    ^ He should be the same height, give or take, as MP Starscream.

    Very happy to see this coming along. Can't wait to but this and the Soundblaster repaint that's bound to happen.

    Holy crap, I forgot about this project and now there are cassettes. Depending on price I will get this. If the reported $100 is accurate I'll be all over it. I am slightly worried about an official MP Soundwave but really, TakaraTomy have had years to put out a Masterpiece Soundwave, who is probably the most requested Masterpiece, and they haven't. Instead we are now getting version 2 of previous MP's. This might be the only option for a long while.

    OMG, this is a Masterpiece Soundwave, he is Masterpiece sized, not voyager sized. There is even a picture of him next to Masterpiece Starscream which I will repost now:

    My apologies if I sound rude but I just got out of the Hegemon discussion where people went over and over and over and over and over and over size related discussions and decided on what everyone knew in the first place, it was Voyager sized.

    I'm glad they went down the detailed look rather than the cartoon look. It will fit in better with other Masterpiece figs this way.

    Thank you! If you played a drinking game where you went through a thread and took a shot every time someone asked how big something was even after it had been conclusively determined within like a centimeter how big it was, you would be dead in every thread about a new toy. I really there was a way to ensure the OP included the assumed size (or size range if there's a question, or unknown if we just flat out don't know) on every thread like this.

    It's hard to insist that other people be as informed as us obsessives, certainly the person talking about it being voyager sized didn't mean to piss anyone off, but it's really annoying nonetheless.

    Yeah we more or less had it confirmed in the Masterpiece thread that TT won't/can't do a MP Soundwave so I wouldn't worry about picking this guy up. Glad they improved certain areas (shins and elbow joints specifically) he looks much better. Lot of detail showing up but I guess most MPs do have that; you just don't notice it when molded into the plastic of the final figure.

    Basically, this is MP Soundwave. Even if Takara did a U-turn when this sells well (wouldn't put it past them) I can't imagine they could do much to improve on this.

    And Cassetticons too... this is indeed awesome! That Laserbeak looks spectacular. Hopefully the Rumble/Frenzy will knock the recent anorexic 3P versions out of the park too.

    Hah, yeah, I was reading the first few pages of that thread too... I know not everyone owns the Hercules figures but there are plenty of reviews of those figures to give folks an idea of how big the Hegemon will be. And yet still...

    Anyway, I also agree that the added detail of Accoustic Wave [terrible name for a great figure] adds to the MP appeal. Can't wait to see it in color and just what and how many cassettes we wind up with...

    The only way this can tank, is if they screw up the colors...

    Why would a third party get the colours wron... -remembers Maketoys Giant- nevermind. I highly doubt they will put a wrong coloured Masterpiece Soundwave out, though they are free to release a Soundblaster in my opinion, which probably will happen. My only complaint with this is no molded Decepticon badge but if they did that Has/Tak would destroy it so I can live with a reprolabel.

    Here is a look at the original prototype in alt mode.

    I can live with that.
