s250 has dropped by out Toys Forum
to post a link to a few images of what could be a prototype for the rumoured
US Commemorative Series release of G1 Soundwave or Soundblaster.
As yet nothing has been confirmed in regards to Soundwave or Sounblaster being released as part of Hasbro's Commemorative Seires, in fact these images could be nothing more than prototypes from the Takara reissue of this mould. Decided for youself and take a look at the images here
