I'm confused: is Red Alert going to be MP 12A or MP 14?

just got the email, BBTS going from 139.99 - 169.99$
If you have a preorder though, it's only going up to 159.99, and they are absorbing the 10$.

30$ for a lazerbeak, better be able to play music for that price. :roll:

Just received the email.

Nice how they blame the cost on Laserbeak.How can they release a G1version of Soundwave without a cassette? That's just a stupid thought.

U.S. merchants - oh hey look, Soundwave comes with a cassette.... I didn't know that.

Dumb asses.

Still keeping my preorder regardless. But wonder how many pre orders they will lose. :HEADHURTS:

I think BBTS are handling this in the best possible way they are able to. Considering Takara finally now set the retail price at a much higher price-point than was initially expected, BBTS can't be faulted for adapting their pre-order price, which, even at $169.99, is very reasonable considering the USD to yen rate. Granting the early pre-orders (including, like my pre-order, the ones that were made AFTER the price-hike was announced) an extra $10 is above and beyond, as far as I'm concerned: BBTS were under no obligation to do so at all.
BBTS is a business and not a charity, and I'd advise anyone who doesn't like these new BBTS prices to cancel their pre-order so as to find better prices.

I agree BBTS is giving an extra break for those who preordered early like I did. Yea $20 for Laserbeak kinda sucks, but BBTS is letting us get it for $20 instead of $30. A company like that doesn't have to do anything they could of charged the extra $30 and thats it. Be greatful there were getting something out of this!!!

I appreciate BBTS sending out emails with an explanation and trying to be transparent about the cost and the price. I wasn't too shocked about the price increase. And if it seemed too high, I would have canceled and waited it out for the Hasbro version.

IMO the reason behind the explanation was fail. I don't mind the increase either but say it was due to the Takara increase and not because you just found out you're getting Laserbeak. It's just dumb to NOT expect Soundwave to come with a tape.

I think I might wait for the Hasbro version. It will probably be at least half the price and look almost exactly the same if MP-10 and MP-08 are any indication.

Looks pretty good! Soundwave doesn't really hold many surprises, but I especially do like Laserbeak! Internal rocket-pack; very nifty. Still really hoping for some electronic functions on Soundwave, and perhaps even some electronic interaction between Laserbeak and Soundwave (voice-chip or something).

After looking at the fanstoys version a while, this one looks a little plain in the details department. Just the legs could use some more details at the front and he'll be perfect.
I like how Laserbeak looks, I just wish there would be more than one cassette when he comes out :(
And I really hope we'll be able to get all cassettes without having to buy any repaints of Soundwave

Does anyone have an idea how big the MP cassettes are? Are they the same size or larger than the G1 cassettes?

There haven't been any pics showing him with other transformers, so no size comparisons yet.

I'm actually surprised that there haven't been any more colour photos going around.
