Re: Extensive Pictorial Review of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave with Laserbeak (1457076)

At first the legs on this guy really bothered me, but after I saw you could at least pose them in a running/standing/action foreign pose, it became alright. Sadly tho, the shinning point of this set Is laserbeak, and I'm not saying this sarcastically. The way takara re-imaged this toy is simply stunning. Going from a toy that was basicly a parts former, to a toy that has 3X the articulation and NO CIBBLE! It's a shame you can't just buy laserbeak lol

Wow that's a lot of pictures!
so does the clear energon cube comes with all Soundwave releases or just the Amazon exclusive one? All the pictures and reviews I've seen of him has it but neither say if they have the Amazon exclusive version

The Amazon release simply comes with an extra energon cube.

As much as I love Soundwave I think Laserbeak could be the star of this release.



What was the issue with your Sideswipe? I didn't have any.

Regarding the scale. I don't have any problem with height of Sideswipe, Soundwave, MP10, and Rodimus Prime, Seekers, and Grimlock.

So you have to cut out the two illustrations on the user manual and sandwich it between SW's chest and the transparent grid plate for the schematics gimmick?

I'd rather scan the two illustrations and print them out...or make some original ones.

I hate that, like MP-10, there's a space/gap between his fingers and the bottom of the gun, caused by the blocky forearm:



It could have been remedied by redesigning the gun so that the trigger parts could be lowered a little when deployed, like the GU-11 gunpods for Yamato's 1/60 VF-1 toys:



Overall, though, this is a kickass toy; can't wait for it to arrive at my hobby store.

im guessing his thigh uses the joint like hasbro iron man figure..if u rotate the upper part,u can get a good range of motion for his leg...any confirmation on this?

I was getting the same impression. Not sure how it works with his buttons/cod-piece though.

It's not a perfect box as I thought it would be.
It's not made in Vietnam.

Anyways. I'm still waiting for mine. I want to play with it. :D

I gotta say that Soundwave looks great overall. Too bad he's TOO GODDAMN EXPENSIVE and even though it's Soundwave, just not worth the expense that is expected to import it. Hasblo would be fools not to release this in the States, which means they won't. I'm so tired of being priced out of these damn things!

And that is probably my only gripe with this release. Although I agree it will be simple just to scan the manual or print out your own, you would think for the price of this thing Takara could have printed two little inserts.

And I believe it has the MP-10 hand issue because it uses the same hands. That was posted under the video review.

Yeah, at the price this is going for, a couple of translucent inserts are well within reason.

As for the hands, there's no getting around it unless Takara went back to using the old designs with articulated thumbs. But as I mentioned earlier, allowing the trigger mechanism to lower down to the fingers when deployed will solve the issue. It shouldn't be that much of a problem as Soundwave's gun has a similar conversion as the GU-11 gun pods for the Yamato 1/60 VF-1's.

Not very impressed with this soundwave. I think it's too simplistic in robot form. Its just a bigger version of the originaln or reissue soundwave. Not enough "ahhhh"'to render 200 bucks for it. Laser dam is nice. But looking at te pictures, the original tapes look awesome. New masterpiece tapes too expensive to replace old ones. Ill keep my old ones. Ill wait for Hasbro's on all these masterpieces
