So I found a G1 Soundwave

Postby Phantron » Mon Nov 26, 2012 10:33 pm

Weapon: Plasma Cannon
Over all he is in pretty good shape for a toy nearly 30 years old. Found him mostly complete too. Has both his battery weapons and two (orignally with 3?) of his chrome missiles. Sadly no mini-con cassettes were with him. I think he has most of his orignal stickers too. No rubsign either, so I assume its from the 1984 run.

There are only two problems with him aside from the lack of cassettes. One is that one side of his tape door is broken. The button to release the door still works but all you have to do is pull on the door and it opens. Afraid that over time if mishandled the door will break off completely.

The other problem are his joints. They are extremely loose. Especially the legs, to the point where he'll slouch forward so he looks like he's snoozing on the job. Is there a fix for this? If not, its not huge problem.

I paid about $125 for him. Not sure if I paid too much for him or not.

I'll post pics later.

You can get the encore/re-release one with everything and all in good condition lesser than the price you paid.

Maybe if you posted here before making that purchase.

SW's legs have always had that problem. I remember from my childhood that SW always had floppy puppet legs. I'm not sure what's going on inside those joints, but it seems like they get stretched out every time you transform it.

I was on vacation when I bought him. He was in one of those vintage toy stores. I don't see stuff like that very often so I thought "why not?"

Besides, I don't really mind paying that much since this was my first G1 figure I ever owned. Most of the old figures I have are from the G2 era. (I grew up with G2 and Beast Wars.)

I bet if I tried to sell mine I wouldn't get $20. That's how my luck is. :BANG_HEAD:
