WANT.


The MP-13 looks perfect.

And that "accessory free" Laserbeak is pretty brilliant.

I hope the price will eventually go down. I've taken some heavy hits from customs this month.

Ha ha! Called it! Hands are similar, if not the same, as MP-10.

Cant wait. Soundwave superior!

He looks great. Nice review. Not sure if feet are that much of an issue. I don't like that the back of the alt mode has kibble. They could have easily have hidden that all and made it more smooth.

If i only get one TF this year (witch is probably the case) than this is the one too get. I have no desire too wait for a TRU release on this guy and possibly lose out on an accessory like mini megatron or have it be grey plastic instead of silver paint.

Dollar per dollar, this toy is way, WAY better than MP-10. Better design, better aesthetics, and better accessories. I really don't understand his grievances over its price.

You would be complaining about price too if most of your mps are at the 59-79 dollars range. Optimus, grimlock, Hot rod, thundercracker, skywarp, and starscream are all superior figures with that price range, which I have obtained with very little hassle. Ultr magnus and magatron was the only ones I bought for $120 recently. For soundwave to be 159-189 price range at preorder is insane. Ill wait for hasbro to come out with theirs. Not hat I'm complaining about the price difference, most people prob have never considered spending over a hundred for a toy, thus the complaint. I've considered the past few days about my transformers spending and I do agree with those people that spending over a hundred for a toy is a bit overdoing. But each his own. You have money to spend, do it.

By the way, it is better than mp-10, but I got that for 79.99, buy one get one free. So yeah, it is better but price wise, it's not

In many cases I would agree with the kibble quilms, but on a character such as Soundwave, it doesn't bother me. He's going to be in robot mode any. Cannot wait for U.S. release!

LOL! How about more space? :lol:

I'm seriously running out of display real estate here, and most of my collection have to be put on rotation so I can bring out some new figs to display. My MP figs will be on display most of the time, although there will come a time when I'll have bought too many MP figs for my glass shelf to accommodate, and I'll have to put them on rotation as well--hence, semi permanent. ;)

For those who thinks $160-$180 (price depending on whether or not it was pre-ordered) is too much for this toy - the reviewer, particularly - is ridiculous.

He had used MP10 Black for comparison (a toy that cost about just as much compared to a far better toy like Masterpiece Soundwave as I have mentioned in my past post) makes his grievances even more puzzling.

He's also overlooking the fact that he's paying for TWO figures, not one - Laserbeak alone worth about $30 (in a two cassette set that typically costs about $60), making MP Soundwave cost about $130 to $150 - that's about the cost of Takara MP Grimlock.

This makes his complaint over the price point pretty WTF since he got Black Convoy. If he's collecting the Takara versions, he should know that's how much they cost by now.
