I have the gold LP Soundwave... not because I like Link Park (some songs are alright) but because I love G1 Soundwave, and I love weird or different versions of Transformers.

It's true I would have liked him to be all "gold chrome" like his buttons are, but it probably wouldn't have been feasible from a materials standpoint. I bet the chrome coating is very susceptible to flaking or other damage. The weird brownish plastic is not ideal, and the 2 buzzards being identical as far as I can tell is odd. They should have swapped one of them out for Rumble or Frenzy.

I agree with many of the points brought up by TF fans but at the same time find it cute that some people can't differentiate between "what I think" and "what is true in absolute terms." People who don't like the figure, calling people who buy it dumb or gullible? Sounds like a very 3rd-grade viewpoint to me.

Preference and absolutes are 2 different things. You can like a flavor of ice cream that i think is disgusting, but I'm not going to think you're dumb or wrong for liking it. I am capable of realizing my preference doesn't dictate the universe.

The packaging is very cool as well, it should be interesting trying to keep it in perfect shape when I move in a few months. Cardstock is not known for being very durable.

Couldn't agree more on these points. Feels like a waste to have, essentially, two of the same toy in a box. Could have done black plastic on part of one and inverted it on the other, something, anything, to make them look different!

And the box is a thing of beauty. I'll most likely put everything back in the package and display the set that way.

Here's hoping that gold plastic holds up through time as well!
