I have only recently started collecting Masterpiece releases and I am currently waiting for my Convoy (MP-10) and Starscream (MP-11) orders to arrive, so I do not know yet if I will purchase Soundwave (MP-13) straight... What are the chances of him being released by Hasbro in the nearby future and what will he cost me then, being an overseas buyer? I have paid just as much for Convoy (MP-10) as I would have had to pay for the Hasbro release, so how will that be for Soundwave? Time will tell I guess. But Soundwave is looking great!


Hasbro hasn't officially announced a stateside release of Soundwave. Like I said previously, I'm giving them six months before I decide to import.


I am betting Christmas 2013.

Unknow. But I'd say his hands would be as poseable as Starscream; thumb is a ball joint, index finger is hinged and ball-jointed, and the rest of them are fused, hinged and ball-jointed.

My thought was that his hands looked a bit like MP-10. Either way, very excited for this figure.

Also, have there been any size compariso shots with Soundwave and 'Screamer or O.P.?

Wow the MP line is so out of scale with each other. I mean should Hot Rod really be that much taller than Sideswipe ? Dont get me wrong, the detail is beautiful, but I just dont get what people like about the huge size ? Theyre in scale with dolls for crying out loud ! (hence the pictures) If this figure could be shrunk to voyager size, Id be all over it.

I'm hoping they don't change a thing for the US release, except maybe a yellow optic band (though not a purple repaint; I like comic continuity better, but not THAT much better), but I'm guessing Hasbro might not include Megatron.

I'm all for sensitivity in the wake of the horrible shootings of the past year, but one thing I learned in the wake of Aurora is that such tragedies seem to lead to toy guns getting cracked-down upon instead of the real ones...for some reason. I hope I didn't just start some polarizing debate, but I just noticed the Megatron, and it's something I WOULD like to see Hasbro include as well. Because it's harmless fantasy. And it's too small to be mistaken for a real magnum. Just sayin'.

MP-01 Optimus and MP-05 Megatron are from the old larger scale. Hot Rod is actually G1 Rodimus Prime with the Hot Rod modes being more of a gimmick that doesn't scale well with the other figures, but it isn't really meant to. MP-09 Rodimus Prime, MP-10 Optimus, MP-11 Starscream, MP-12 Sideswipe and MP-13 Soundwave are all in perfect scale with each other based on the G1 size chart. MP-08 Grimlock could be considered a bit small, but still looks good with the others.

Don't get me wrong, the detail is beautiful, but I just don't see it happening in voyager size :P

the 20th anniversary masterpiece prime back in 2005 included it even after those other mass shootings way back when(heres a guide for reference: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/201 ... -full-data ) so i wouldn't count it out yet there is still hope

I certainly hate knowing that Hot Rod is taller than Soundwave. :BOOM:

Still, I hope one day I can forget it, as I leave MP Rodimus boxed for all eternity as punishment for... uh, existing. :twisted:

I hope the quality control is sorted on this figure, after the issues with Sideswipe this could kill the MP line for me if its messed up.

As much as I love Soundwave I think Laserbeak could be the star of this release.

Which is exactly why I decided not to buy MP Sideswipe. Ever since they released MP Hot Rod Takara's gone and messed up the whole scale. Bad enough Soundwave will be a whole head shorter than Megatron, but Sideswipe shouldn't look like a Autobot mini spy next to him.

So I'm guessing the next MP announcement will be Soundblaster?

I just pictured Soundwave blasting Rod Stewart... because yeah I think he's sexy! :D

I agree with those who think Rodimus is too tall. But it's true, he was meant to be Rodimus Prime, so I guess it's forgiven. Sideswipe really does look tiny though.

At first the legs on this guy really bothered me, but after I saw you could at least pose them in a running/standing/action foreign pose, it became alright. Sadly tho, the shinning point of this set Is laserbeak, and I'm not saying this sarcastically. The way takara re-imaged this toy is simply stunning. Going from a toy that was basicly a parts former, to a toy that has 3X the articulation and NO CIBBLE! It's a shame you can't just buy laserbeak lol

What was the issue with your Sideswipe? I didn't have any.

Regarding the scale. I don't have any problem with height of Sideswipe, Soundwave, MP10, and Rodimus Prime, Seekers, and Grimlock.
