The month after Soundwave.
I'm actually surprised that TCP preorders haven't sold out.
This would be a home run for me if the toy deco were offered as a separate release instead of being limited to swappable parts. I would like silver instead of white, and a couple of other minor details, like this:
I agree with this. I would add that FT/RP release a G1-toy coloured version (right blue and silver parts) with Buzzsaw as the cassette.
Same here. I'd add this to my collection if the toy deco was as pictured above because someone is going to do a better toon MP Soundwave.
However, despite FT in the past having released toy and toon deco's with the Dinobots and the Insecticons, they otherwise have shown no interest in doing so. Considering there are already toy parts in this release I doubt if a second, toy coloured version is coming. But if they do, I will get it. In general it shouldn't be difficult to sell a FT figure without loss.
I just didn't want to run risk of missing out. I may love the look of MP-13, but I hate moving the legs or transforming it.
For news credits, @Dpuff will swim to China, assemble the tapes, shoot a 4K video review and hand deliver it to you. You just have to make sure he gets his due.
I just hope that Acoustic Wave is as tall as DS Starscream.
sorry brotha but I love love that white cartoon deco. I do think a 2nd release is coming though with silver legs
I went back and took a closer look at their feet, I'd only made a quick glance before, Perceptor's feet do appear higher than Soundwave's toe, but they look more or less in line with his actual foot behind the toe to me.
So after paying my remaining balance and getting the cheapest shipping cost. The total price from tfs express (with cheapest shipping) is $211.99. Not bad.
Is it that surprising with how things outside of collecting are going and this being a $250, 9” bot?
Those waiting for a price drop might be proven right after all!!!
Black Friday is only a month away after all.
So what's the damage with shipping included?
Edit: For CA, 50 bucks will give you 7 to 15 days shipping. So total damage is around 215, 220 it seems.
Funny you would mention Buzzsaw. I always preferred him to Laserbeak because it's the toy that I had. I liked his Tech Spec profile better, too.
Damn the toy and toon people! Hahaha.
It’s funny because we have so many different aspects that we are looking for despite being G1 fans. Must drive the designers crazy.
I have mine pre-ordered on bbts, is it worth switching to toy dojo or something? I've heard bbts can get things a little later but not sure if that's true
Seriously, LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOO! My last FT figure was Seaspray and that felt like ages ago. Damn reissues killed the FT momentum.
I completely understand that cartoon fans want white on the toon version-- that only makes sense. But if they're going to go to the trouble of giving toy fans a toy deco, it's almost a waste of time without the silver paint. It'd be like giving the toon head a mandatory yellow visor. I would prefer a completely separate release rather than a few swappable parts.
I certainly hope you're right about a second release in silver, but Fans Toys hasn't done a toy deco in ages, so I'm not holding my breath. They are very much on the toon bandwagon in an attempt to take Takara head-on. This is a fantastic piece of work, though, and if it weren't $250 I might get one and paint it myself.
At twice the price.
Might give you an idea....
