Just got my MP Soundwave today in Williston, Vt (nowhere close to any of you, I bet! :D) , and I'm pleased to say the box was mint, with only one minor crease, and the toy didn't have any QC issues, or, at least, none that I noticed/care about.

Almost thought Ravage's head was on upside down when I transformed him, then I realized his legs can go the other way too, LOL! (Derp moment, I know!)

Ok here are pics of the problems on the head and shoulder alone...

Haven't posted pics here before, not sure if I did it correctly...


While the pictures show a less extensive amount of poor QC than I expected from your description, I think the paint spots and poorly cut sprue points are significant.

I know you said you don't intend to return it but I suggest having it exchanged for another MP Soundwave.

Hasbro and TakaraTomy Transformers toys are made in the same factories. There's no reason for this kind of poor QC. We've seen production runs of MP toys with poor QC(MP Lambo/Sideswipe) in the past. This level of QC is not acceptable at MP level. They're premium products, they're meant to be high end toys, and so they should be held to a higher standard.

Frankly, this kind of QC wouldn't be acceptable for a main market Transformers toy.

YES! Scored mine this morning - and no QC issues I can spot. Although I really do NOT like Ravage's robot mode, so he's staying in cassette mode in Soundwave's chest. Classics Ravage (from Hound + Ravage) will be my display Ravage.

Might do this too. How long do you have to retro refund? Also do you have to bring SW with you or just the receipt?

I believe the returns are 90 days.

Also, since the have to scan something, I imagine you would have to bring in Soundwave - or at least the bar code - if they don't have a Soundwave you can scan in store.

In most states its a 14 day price adjustment window; returns are a whole different animal, this is just a price adjustment so there should be no problems.

I just printed out my e-receipt and a copy of the coupon and i was in and out in ten minutes; no box needed as the sku is on the receipt.

All they had to do was scan my rewards card, receipt barcode for the return, manually punch the sku as a new purchase then scan the coupon.

Done and done!
Good luck to all!!

I recently picked up Acid Storm from TRU on a whim which got me looking at the other MP figures. On eBay, I see a ton of Soundwaves available WITHOUT cassettes. I'm just wondering why anyone would separate them from Soundwave. Sorry if this has been covered before.

Those people likely bought the Japanese version of Soundwave, which only came with Laserbeak. Instead of buying the other Japanese cassettes, which come separately, they decided to buy the TRU Soundwave for the cassettes, and try and reduce their cost by selling the base Soundwave figure.

I finally got one, through the TRU.com "Free Store Pickup" option. I kept checking all stores in a 40-mile radius, and finally found a store - about 15 miles away - that had it.

Not just that but actually have the gull to ask more for that than what they payed for the set.

I'm not sure if its been mentioned elsewhere, but Soundwave is now available to order online at TRU in the UK. That's Great Britain folks. I signed up for email and text alerts of which I received neither!!! Luckily I've been checking the product page twice a day for the last fortnight so I managed to get him! Arriving Monday.

Got mine delivered from TRU UK today, £120 is a lot of money, but it's a great figure and thankfully Hasbro went with packaging all 5 tapes with him so no extras to 'complete' the set as it were.

Yeah £120 is a lot for a toy, I got the cold sweats when I pressed 'confirm order'! But I knew if I didn't buy Soundwave, I'd regret it later. Plus it is quite good value considering how expensive the 4 extra cassettes are if you bought them from Takara!

Hey you guys, for those who have not pick this up yet....don't give up hope yet!

This is the info I got:

We sincerely apologize for any confusion or inconvenience regarding this release. Limited quantities of the TRANSFORMERS Masterpiece Soundwave were made available online this morning in conjunction with International Comic-Con in San Diego. Due to high demand, this item is currently sold out, but is expected to be available in our U.S. stores and again online at Toysrus.com by late September.
