    Seeing these two together kinda makes me wish FT would do a Quakewave 2.0.

    Thing is he does feel a bit cheap imo. He's just really hollow with no paint and a bit of a let down, 100% want a Quakwave 2.0

    After knocking out some photos of Acoustic Wave, I can say he is one of my favorites for 2021. Some of the tolerances are a bit tight, but the build is solid!

    The display options between the the very on point toon look and the more toy-centric look are really nice touches.

    I really liked the official MP of Soundwave, but AW is my guy going forward.

    Fibrir is pretty cool too.

    @Code 777 @Potato Rider -

    Well, we got “Quakewave” (Quakeblast) v1.5 - which is better, IMO, than FT’s own Quakewave and better than TT’s original attempt. Their + version grew on me a bit, despite not owning it; but I still prefer Quakeblast.

    Thanks! I thought fans toys was washing their hands of this and had a different email for service, but they did respond to my inquiry.

    Yeah Quakeblast is good but it doesn't fit with a modern cartoon masterpiece collection

    Saw a comparison where the person put this next to Takara Soundwave & this...I still liked Takara. If they gave TK's better leg/waist connection then I'd still call it great and keep as my SW.

    SOMEONE get on that! Fix that issue...please?

    I may be interested in all of these. Sorry if this has been already asked but will the chest frame cover come painted?

    most of these fixes/upgrades/add-ons are mainly cosmetics (like covers, or weapons) and not really functional (or i should said no major changes to the figure). If you are asking some 3rd party companies to "fix" the leg and waist connection on mp soundwave, then I guess you might as well be waiting for Takara to make a 2nd version of the toy (because i think this is quite a major change which involves adjustment to the transformation scheme also).

    No, no, the cosmetic. Like add-ons.

    At the moment it would be the light gray color. Folks would need to paint it.

    But if there is a large interest/demand for it to be printed in yellow PLA….I could purchase a yellow spool. But if a whole yellow spool is only going to fulfill say 5-6 orders in yellow PLA….then I’ll just keep it on light gray.

    When parts are ready for production/sale…..I’ll ask here and see if there is a demand for it. Thanks

    We all know the bombusbee charter flight with our AW’s has landed. I’m going to wake up tomorrow or actually today I guess and see that we hit customs. And our orders will move swiftly through customs then be distributed to our homes.

    that is what is going to happen. I just hope usps is taking over the shipping from here

    Mine is still on track for delivery late this week. Baba might have gotten his shipment late, but he shipped my copy 4 days ago, and now it's already in the States.

    Baba Superior!!!

    Beautiful pics! Frenzy pulls til he clicks at the waist and gets taller showing the area that is supposed to be red which they unfortunately didn't paint, just in case you didnt know.
    When they look better they get a pass! Love Quakeblast!

    Everything looks great, just let me know when I can buy! My yellow paint is waiting.

    Not sure if this has been said, but Fibrir will scratch the paint on his legs if you put him in the chest upside down. Found that out the hard way when I forced him in there upside down (didn't know he was upside down cause I'm too young to have any experience with real Cassettes and didn't grown up with the original toy).

    Here's pics of the right side up you should put him in the chest

    Also if he's a little stuck when he's the right side up, make sure you raise it so its above the lip on the bottom inside the window

    It's great how much customisation there is for this figure to take it from full-toon to full-toy. One can change:
    1) head
    2) shoulders
    3) chest plate
    4) knee caps
    5) white parts on the inside of the knees (inside upper calf)
    6) upper shins
    7) lower shins
    8) outside calf
    Given that one can use none or any of these in any combination, and assuming you keep him symetrical, the total combinations is 2 to the power of 9 = a staggaring 512 versions of Soundwave!
