The Soundwave train just keeps on chuggin'! If there's a mold, there's bound to be a redeco, and sure enough... MP13B Soundblaster is born! Partnered with an exclusive Ratbat cassette available nowhere else, this stunning redeco takes the already amazing Soundwave mold and makes it even better by giving you a tall, dark and gruesome badass for your shelf.

He's shipping from retailers now and is in stock in the States at both BBTS and TFSource. Check out the gallery and then go buy him!

Amazing! I still cannot justify the purchase though!

this is one of the worst figures i own, the mold is fine but the plastic quality is god awful. I thought Beast Hunters was bad but they feel top notch compared to soundwave and the minions. Also my ravage didnt come with a tail so that didnt help either, for the money i spent on this figure im very disappointed. Not worth it at all if you ask me, to expensive & to cheaply made.

plastic quality of them all (sw & tapes) or just the tapes?

sorry to hear that. mine are all takaras, and the quality is great. though i took extra care as i heard ravage was fragile.

I really like this shade of purple for Ratbat. The head mold is awesome.

I had problems with Laserbeak's wing hinge being too tight and breaking (BBTS replaced it), but that was the only problem I experienced. Megatron Wolf, are your cassettes Hasbro or Takara?

Ryan, how is your Ratbat figure?

thank you for this (and well, the whole gallery for that matter)!

this is the picture that sold me on SB here. other pictures of the red window (lower res and not close up) made it seem almost sunken in. which paled in comparison to the purple window, and that really bugged me since i want to display him with the red to distinguish him from SW as much as i can. im not in love with the black trim around the red window (id prefer gold) but it still looks nice.

only thing i wonder now is how that red window looks like a reprolabel decepticon insignia stamped on there...

Oh, he comes with Safety/Lava-Fall Megatron? I did not know that. Interesting.

I've been leaning towards buying Soundblaster before Takara Soundwave all along, but it'll still be a while before I save up.

And for once, my desire for a KO of this Ratbat isn't about the price as much as that while I want all my cassettes to be the same size (that's kind of the point) and therefore see those enlarged KO cassettes as a total waste, this Dery-accurate Ratbat is the one and only potential exception, since Marvel Ratbat was usually 2-4 times larger than the other cassettes in robot/animal mode. His TF Universe entry also mentions him being able to achieve two different sizes in bat mode; was he the only non-Insecticon to have that ability explicitly stated back in the day? (Overkill doesn't count, as his TFU entry says it happens to him by accident)

As much as i want an MP RatBat i honestly think the G1 doesn't look half bad in the comparison shot. To the point that i'm actually content with my G1 and am not stressing about getting my hands on the MP version at all.

In the middle of last week, we posted our galleries of MP-13B Soundblaster and his companion Ratbat, here and a day before that, the Hasbro set which included all the cassettes from MP-15 and 16, which you can see here, and now we round that out with the origin of it all...

Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest galleries: Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-13 Takara Tomy Masterpiece Soundwave and Condor, plus MP-15 Jaguar (Ravage) and Rumble, and MP-16 Frenzy and Buzzsaw!

Indeed!

I sold mine off (along with my MP-01L) a year or two ago, though, because of MP-10.

I hope they make another MP Megatron down the line. Doesn't have to be this year, next year, or the year after that. But I do hope they make one, even if it means sacrificing the gun mode for a nice bot mode.

I still say they sacrificed cartoon accuracy for playability by enlarging Soundwave but not the cassettes. I mean who really wants to put MP cassettes inside a vintage G1 soundwave ?

But on the other hand, it worked just great for my classics shelf. Am I the only one here who bought MP Soundewave and Soundblaster just for the cassettes ? Or do others besides me see the MP cassettes as perfect "classics" scale ? United Rumble/Frenzy are actually bigger than their MP versions and classics Ravage is the same size.

*RAISES HAND*
I managed to miss the boat on the TrU MP Optimus w/trailer and also MP Soudwave w/cassettes which I am gutted about.

I have just ordered KO MP 15 Rumble & Ravage to be displayed on my Classics shelves. Boom!

My wants list used to have Mini-tanks Rumble & Frenzy, then changed it to Perfect Effect Rumble & Frenzy, now decided that MP Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Buzzsaw & Laserbeak are scaled well enough to be CLASSICS!

This all may change again as I also wanted PE Rewind & Eject which may well be smaller than MP Rumble/Frenzy/etc? :???:

Can anyone snap a quick photo if possible of the MP cassettes with the Perfect Effect Rumble & Frenzy? :-?

I still have MP-01 PRIME & MP-05 MEGATRON and will keep them as a set. I still LOVE MP-01 with all of the Metal in him, feels like they used to in G1.

Thank you Rated X!

I had hoped the PE minions where a little taller so I could mix up the cassettebots without them all looking like David and Goliath? :-?

What to do....
