Seibertron.com member Transformers Hoarder dropped by the Energon Pub to share images of his recently acquired unreleased Transformers Movie Trilogy Deluxe Soundblaster. The figure was originally intended to be released along side repaints of Bumlbebee, Wheeljack (with G1 style head), and Ratchet as MechTech Wave 7, which would have been part of the aforementioned Movie Trilogy line. Images of the proposed line where shown during Hasbro's panel presentation at NYCC back in 2011. The line was ultimately scrapped with only the deluxe Optimus Prime with Trailer seeing the light of day on retail shelves. Enjoy Transformers Hoarder's images below.

Pretty cool looking figure even with the horrible back kibble. I probably would've picked one up if it came out, no way in hell id call it soundwave though id have to rename it like i do with most of the movie figures.

Ill laugh if these things start showing up in TJ Maxx next year. With all the repaints Hasbro shoots out of it's anus, there's bound to be a few pallets of these things gathering dust in some warehouse. Same thing for deluxe Leadfoot with the Target symbol. They just haven't been snuck out yet by crooked employees.

I was able to get the regular DotM Soundwave, and wasn't impressed, at all.

This one looks a little nicer, but still not a fan of the mold. Shame really.

To be honest though, most of the line was comprised of large amounts of fail. Particularly the MechTech weapons. >:oP

Not sure all theses photo's were needed :shock: but what ever it's 8) For me all that's wrong with this mold is the back pack it's an awesome repaint very evil looking. I too find it very strange these are seeing the light of day :-? i know this has become a rare figure since its ebay debut but i can't help think it's gonna get a retail release and i for one will hold off from paying those ebay prices .

Actually I think they have, the only way I was able to obtain one.

That would take a whole miracle considering these were never even mass-produced, much less even packaged. These eBay ones are loose factory samples.

I could, in principal, see the REGULAR versions showing up on this side of the Pacific eventually... Yeah, I know, it's wishful thinking at best. It sucks that they shelfwarmed in Asia while we never even SAW them.

But, then again, there IS another movie line in the works, and it wouldn't surprise me to see some redecos.

Remember the "rare" ROTF red Rampage and Evac that wound up in TJ Maxx ? Maybe these might not have been packaged, but the fact that these have such nice tampos leads me to believe there's a hidden stash in some warehouse. Maybe the guy only took a dozen so it wouldn't be noticed. I'm sure that Bumblebee will pop up soon as well.

Those were mass produced, and therefore could show up in stores. I even saw the red Rampage at Kmart and Walmart a few times.

These Soundwaves, however, are merely finished factory samples that aren't fit for brick-and-mortar standard retail sales. No mass production or packaging = no TJ Maxx.

I wouldn't so no to that. There are far too many molds that have been missed in the US market over the past 5 years. They've got to have something up their sleeves or else Hasbro just doesn't want to make money. I don't believe the latter so I believe the former will happen and in ways that aren't expecting. We've seen too many rules to "traditions" broken to count out opportunities like certain figures getting a release at some point that we never thought possible.

Well, I meant as the figures are now. If Hasbro gets on the ball and produces more of them and makes packaging and instructions and all that for them, then yeah I could see it happening.

Thing is, ever since Animated, the final figures of each major Hasbro toyline (minus ROTF) keep getting dropped or put on hold indefinitely. Animated, Robot Heroes, Reveal the Shield, and DOTM all had their final toys canceled. The fact that the Prime First Edition toys got a second run and that PRID Voyager Skyquake managed to get released at all are quite shocking.

156 iirc. Will look again later and correct this post if that's wrong.

Mine arrived today, numbered 040. I believe the auction I won was the 2nd public eBay auction. Paid £88 for mine :)

I'm guessing the well has run dry at this point, as the seller hasn't anymore listed. I'd been keeping an eye on the auctions as I'd have bought a 2nd if I could have got it for a similar price to my first one so I could display bot and alt mode together. Ah, we'll at least I was lucky enough to get one :)

Re: In-Hand Images: Unreleased Transformers Movie Trilogy Deluxe Soundblaster (1492857)
Posted by SkyWarpsGhost on June 5th, 2013 @ 11:06am CDT
Any idea how many altogether were auctioned?
Re: In-Hand Images: Unreleased Transformers Movie Trilogy Deluxe Soundblaster (1492876)
Posted by Transformers Hoarder on June 5th, 2013 @ 12:45pm CDT
No more than 20, I think.
