When eating planets alone isn't enough to satisfy the Chaos Bringer's hunger, Unicron comes to Earth to fill up on McDonald's. McDonald's golden arches will light our darkest hour (when the Chaos Bringer would not share) by clogging his arteries, raising his blood pressure, and giving him diabetes.

I only said that because this clothing style seems to be stuck in between hip hop and pop rock styles, but not strong enough in either genre to sway buyers. I own transformers clothes that are geared more towards hip hop fans. And Ive seen plenty of transformers clothes geared more toward the pop rock fans which I would not wear. This seems to be too much of a mix of both, just like Justin Beiber lol.

Here's a youtube interview of Joe Hahn during his Soundwave release party. You only need to watch the first minute unless you're a big Linkin Park fan. Kinda cool seeing some Soundwave stuff behind him and the T-Shirts rotating by.

Linkin Park Soundwave Launches Today as Part of Transformers 30th Anniversary

The LINKIN PARK SOUNDWAVE TRANSFORMERS Figure Launches Today as Part of the Brand's 30th Anniversary Celebration

Los Angeles, C.A. and Pawtucket, R.I. - September 20, 2013 - Premier global branded play company, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and world renowned rock band, LINKIN PARK, released a special edition action figure of the TRANSFORMERS character SOUNDWAVE today at the SURU store in Los Angeles, C.A. The LINKIN PARK SOUNDWAVE TRANSFORMERS action figure also marks the first celebrity designed TRANSFORMERS figure in the brand's 30-year history.

LINKIN PARK is no stranger to the 'MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE' brand having provided songs for three TRANSFORMERS movie soundtracks and with members of the band growing up as fans of the 'ROBOTS IN DISGUISE." Joe Hahn of LINKIN PARK, worked closely with TRANSFORMERS designers at Hasbro, and has been a life-long TRANSFORMERS fan and collector.

"I grew up playing with TRANSFORMERS toys in the 1980's and still collect TRANSFORMERS figures to this day," said Hahn. "As a fan, providing music for the movie soundtracks and creating a LINKIN PARK inspired TRANSFORMERS action figure is beyond any fan's dream come true."

The LINKIN PARK special edition figure is in the "Generation 1" or "G1" style of the fan favorite SOUNDWAVE TRANSFORMERS character, features a gold deco treatment and is packaged in a unique cassette tape-inspired box. "LINKIN PARK chose the SOUNDWAVE character in the 'G1' style for his retro-appeal," Hahn continued. "In the original animated series from the 80's, SOUNDWAVE converts into a tape deck, has cassette tapes as minions and battles the AUTOBOTS with blasts of sound; he was an easy choice to represent our band."

"LINKIN PARK are best in class, iconic musicians and we consider them part of the TRANSFORMERS team," said Jay Duke, Vice President of Global Brand Marketing, Hasbro. "The TRANSFORMERS brand is thrilled to have LINKIN PARK be one of the first celebrities to inspire a TRANSFORMERS action figure. The LINKIN PARK collaboration is an exciting part of the TRANSFORMERS 30th anniversary celebration."

SURU will be the exclusive retailer for this special edition action figure beginning today at the SURU store in Los Angeles and online at http://www.suru-la.com through October 3rd. TRANSFORMERS fans can keep up with all of the latest brand news including the 30th Anniversary on the official TRANSFORMERS Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/Transformers.

It's made of the brownish colored plastic that they've been using for gold lately. It's not the same plastic as the infamous gold plastic that destroys older Transformers.

Refresh my memory, what's the fan term "chewed caramels" mean again? Because when I see Soundwave in robot mode, I just keep hearing Cobra Commander in that Gamesmaster episode screaming, "No! It's...butterscotch!"

Cassette completist though I am, there's just soooooo much I haven't saved up for, including 3rd party cassettes that make these 4 seem pointless, and buying MP Soundblaster for the new Ratbat would be way more worthwhile...

And then, it just dawned on me that the brown Ratbat in this set IS a representation of something in official media.

SG Ratbat, when not in his Batbot costume.

Dammit, I am going to have to get this someday. sigh.

Well, maybe the price will bottom out from lack of interest.

That's goo to know. My SW X-Over Chewbaka is now an amputee because of GPS. So, that brown plastic will not crumble over time? It's sad to say, but we'll have to wait a few years to find out. Let's hope for those who pay up to 200$ for this special Soundwave will not be screwed over time.

I think it's usually sparkles in the plastic that create the fracture points. The earliest GPS toy I own is Captain Nemo, a green battleship from the Convertors line in 1985. My most tragic GPS loss to date has been Transmetal Megatron with pinkish chrome.

I see some slightly unnerving swirls in this Soundwave, but nothing shiny besides the chrome, so he's probably safe.

A shame how they were given complete freedom on the color scheme, and all they did was make him solid caramel butterscotch 'gold.'

I wonder how much of a market this has. Doesn't seem like there's much support from the TF fan side of things; dunno how many non-TF LP fans would want a (several decade old) toy...

A sticker sheet to give the figure some accents would help. But I haven't heard anything about that being included.

As for the market, Joe Hahn reiterates in the Youtube interview that "about 2000" were made. I think between both large fan bases worldwide, it'll get sold out in time. It's just that the haters are the most vocal. The non-TF fans may want it because they love the band or the celebrities and rock stars posing with it at the release party.

This feels like pure exploitation of mentally unsound individuals.

Completionists WILL buy this, no questions asked, despite legitimate criticisms and dislike of the toy. Maybe a few legitimate fans (of LP or this design) who love this "gold" "masterpiece" (and butterscotch cookies for them! :APPLAUSE:).

The completionists, the honest appreciators, and... the SCALPERS. Well, the limited nature of this toy pretty well guarantees that the poachers will prevent future price drops by feverishly snatching these at "list price savings" and eBaying them for what? Triple? :-B

I guess I want to know how Hasbro can sell something that clearly exploits fools who have no interest in this figure. But as Obi Wan said, "Who's the more foolish? The fool or the fools who follow him?"

Yes exactly. I need a Bieber Blaster! :lol: Also, +1 on your buzzard comment.

Bumblevivisector wrote:I think it's usually sparkles in the plastic that create the fracture points.

This can't be right. A lot of recent toys have "sparkles." Metroplex, for example. I don't think it's specifically that. According to a Hasbro rep, with the gold plastic, it was literally the "gold flecks" (whatever that is :???: ).

Clear plastic is brittle as heck, too.

I'm disappointed Soundwave isn't completely metal gold (like his buttons), but then I guess the choice is GPS or flaking. :BANG_HEAD: Anyway, even if GPS is not a real factor, this is hardly "gold" - it'd be more accurate to call it "fool's gold", as many a fool will pay out the nose for this one! ;)
