3rd Party Masterpiece styled figures

Postby 1987olds442 » Thu Mar 12, 2015 11:20 am

I thought I would start a thread for FansToys figures. FansToys is a 3rd party company that makes fantastic Masterpiece styled Transformers figures. The first figure that was released in this style was their interpretation of Shockwave that they named Quakewave. I missed out on the initial release of this figure for a couple of reasons, but when I finally decided to get a Quakewave they were all sold out and going for crazy money on eBay.

I did however buy the grey version of Quakewave which was the edbomber/Toy Dojo exclusive. This version was limited to 350 pieces and was colored grey like the Radio Shack released toy called Astro Magnum. I actually love this version the Dark Metallic grey looks great on this figure, and I always thought that the purple used on the original was a little to bright.

One day I do hope that they revisit this figure and reissue it in the original G1 toys colors.

The next figure that they released was the first of their MP Styled Dinobots Scoria (Slag). They are actually making two versions of each of the Dinobots toon-inspired and the other toy-inpired.

The first version of Scoria actually came with feet extensions for MP-08 Grimlock. To use so Grimlock would be around same height as Scoria which is a nice temporary fix until they make their own version of Grimlock.

Yeah unfortunately I missed the boat on Quakewave as well. He looks great in grey but I've got to wait it out and see if we get it in the classic G1 purple again. I have a couple of the original G1s and he's easily one of my top favourite G1 figures.

Yeah Quakewave is a pretty awesome piece I really do like my grey version, but I'm still hoping that we can get a G1 toy version after they get caught up on their other upcoming releases.

But unlike Scoria both the toy and cartoon versions were released pretty close to one another.

You would think that the next announced figure that they were planning would have been their version of Sludge, but to everyone's surprise it wasn't a Dinobot at all. But instead they revealed FansToys FT-09 - Tesla (Preceptor) and FansToys FT-11 - Spotter (Reflector).
