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

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:

Image

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.

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

Not sure what else you would expect from this toy. Of course it's a larger version of the original, that's what all the other MP's have been before him. The transformation is slightly more involved but not too complicated that you risk breaking parts off.

I think the combination of having him store 3 cassettes, weapon storage, generous articulation, Megatron's alt-mode and a clip-on weapon, an energon cube AND Laserbeak is more than enough "Ahhh" to make me more than happy.

I think you're expectations are too high, just like the price tag. And speaking of, what price is this figure going for in Japan? Probably the same as the otherMP releases - around $100-$130.00. The $200.00 price tag everyone is complaining about is part import price and part retailer mark-up. Anytime you import an item from overseas you're going to pay higher prices. They charge that kind of price because fanatical collectors will pay it. :HEADHURTS:

For the fifth time since we first saw pics many moons ago, the epsiode was "Fire on the Mountain." It's a scanner Soundwave used to find the geothermal vent under the pyramid.

I dont agree with you on that all masterpices are Bigger versions of their g1 counterpart, except for sideswipe and red alert so far. the earlier optimus modes, megatron, and the seeker jets have clearly been modifies in their transformations and look that they Are g1 figures but different enough where they look "aahhhhh". Look at Optimus' transformations. You don't just flip the hands in and pull the legs back. It is folded in and are extremely complicated in their alternate mold. Same for keystrokes and Magnus and seekers. I did expect a little modification on Soundwave. Not complaining, any masterpiece is appreciated. Price wise, I think it's ok, just not for a simplistic transformers that are bigger versions of the same toy. That's why I didn't get sideswipe nor red alert. They look to similar to their g- toy. No major upgrades

Unless we're at a misunderstanding here, he has a point. You won't buy Sideswipe or Red Alert because they're too close to their G1 toys? Well, that's kind of what they're supposed to do. Take a G1 character and give them advanced articulation for better poses than the likes of Classics or the G1 figures themselves.

He wasn't attacking you either. It's sarcasm, as in meant to be taken as a joke.

Wow soundwave has arrived two days early for BBTS. Hopefully TF Source gets theirs today or tomorrow so I can get mine. I pre ordered Soundwave back in August 21st. So I've been waiting a long time!! Also glad that I locked Soundwave in at the $169.95 price tag!!

A joke is when one does not attack the other and its funny to both parties. I'm offended that some some just told me that I'm blind to see the obvious. Basically what I'm saying is the soundwave does not impress me and the reasons. He doesn't have to agree but do not say that I'm blind that even my glasses didn't help. That's my interpretation of that line...and that is. No joke. Talk about the toy, not the person making the comments!

WOW he's already in stock, I thought he wasn't gonna be available til the 28th, I dont care either way he's in my POL and i got him at the 159.99 pricee, just have to wait for a few other items to arrive (YOTS Omega Supreme, Uranos SR-71 & other non TF misc) great time in our lives to not only be a TF collector but part of the G1 generation growing up in the 80's and seeing the evolution our beloved characters have made and there will be more to come as toy technology improves. And for those who dont think this will get the Hasbro treatment, Hasbro has released every MP figure Takara has released (with the exception of Megatron) but Hasbro has released each mold Takara has released in some shape or form in the US and for them to not release Soundwave, that would be a poor decision from their end, if anything they may release him with a different color variation, different cassette combination, may be ravage and laserbeak...but rest assured that they will release him in the US, I chose to get this one mainly because I knew the hassle it was to get my Hasbro MP-10 at TRU and I rather pay the BTTS/TFsource pricing then deal with the TRU Optimus Prime debacle again lol, and with that note...SOUNDWAVE SUPERIOR BIATCHES!!! :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay:

I didn't buy sideswipe and red alert because for a masterpiece they're too small. And they weren't my favorites to spend that kind of money. I may cave in if I'm desparate to complete my masterpiece casts. Not because they are like their g1 counterpart. Might as well spend money on the original ones for the same price

Well, that's not quite what you said. And that's why you got a sarcastic response. Whether you meant that or not is a different story. ;)

Correct and thanks for the backup, PrymeStriker. :) Saying the MP's aren't upgrades of G1 bots is like saying the Pope ain't Catholic.

Spend a little less time claiming to be offended at joking forum posts, and spend more time playing with and discussing Transformers.

Those claiming that MP Soundwave isn't of proper MP level due to its similar transformation to the G1 figure, I have just one thing to say: Grimlock.

What colour is the MP-13's nose? In some pictures it looks silver and in others blue.

Soundwave or Laserbeak? Soundwave's faceplate is silver and Laserbeak's beak is a dark grey

Soundwave.

In photos such as this, his nose looks blue. Is it a reflection thing?

Oh, the bridge of the nose? Yeah it looks like the paint didn't reach there, since that is where his visor starts, it's the same on mine. You don't really notice it unless you have extreme close-ups like that picture.
