Acid Storm: Oh god, they're really making it. Well, at least the deco's stylish.

Soundwave: Beautiful. I will claim it and keep it locked away forever, alongside my TRU Prime. Forever will I have these great characters for posterity. Five cassettes is a hell of an included accessory, but I hope we get the Megatron pistol with this one too.

Is Ravage actually smaller than the other minions in cassette mode, or are those pics misleading? From everything I've seen, they're the same size, but those pics threw me off.

Bummed by the yellow visor, but it's not the worst thing in the world. What I'm really concerned about is the matte grey color he seems to have. I can see Hasbro skimping on the silver paint, so I'm interested to see additional pics confirming this either way.

Acid Storm looks pretty good, outside of the green eyes (and mis-transformed wings)... looks like his head is getting swapped with an alt mode Thundercracker! Just hope an MP-11 molded Skywarp's in the pipeline, and my Seeker army will be close to completion (barring the coneheads, of course)!

:CON:

Why did they have to make the paintjob so Hasbroish ? Couldnt they just keep it G1 like everything else from the MP line ?

I think I might be the only one that sees it but, the deco on acid storms wings kinda look like the minecraft creeper textures. :-?

However on the Subject of MP Soundwave, Soooooooo much want :BOWDOWN:

I impulse bought Takara's Soundwave .... seems like a poor choice since this'll be cheaper AND comes with all the cassettes. Still ... yellow eyes? Uh, this is cartoon based, Hasbro. Of course yellow eyes shouldn't be a deal breaker when the alternative's so pricy.

How do you mean? Soundwave looks very G1 to me.

And Acid Storm has had two notable decos, and this one is a fair halfway point compromise between each.

Oh no, yellow eyes are a deal-breaker to me. :\

I was so looking forward to this one...

Hasbro did an impeccable job with MP-10's eyes, why did they drop the ball with MP-13's?

Is it absolutely its final look?

Yellow eyes? No problem! My trusty airbrush is already happily shaking with anticipation ! :grin:

*AHEM* Considering this deco makes Soundwave accurate to not only the original toy, but the UK comics as well, Hasbro technically kept this more G1 than the takara MP, which was only accurate to the G1 cartoon. The abbreviations relevant to his kids, therefore, go without saying. ;)

Unless they worked in an eye-color-change feature, like MP Grimlock? Yeah, didn't think so. This is gonna' force me to get the Takara version down the road as well, since I love Soundwave so.

Not sure ... I sent an email to Hasbro's PR company to see if they can confirm one way or another if he will have yellow (toy accurate) or red (cartoon accurate) eyes. I know a lot of you were hoping for red eyes.

I was hoping for yellow since I've got Takara Tomy's version. Kudos Hasbro!

Yeah, I'm okay with yellow eyes. I like red, but yellow's fine too. I loved Marvel UK Soundwave as a character and this toy will do nicely.

By comparison, Cartoon Soundwave was a hollow, empty shell of a character. :P

Oh c'mon guys, a much less expensive MP Soundwave and there is grumbling over the color of eyes? 8-} I simply see it as a true homage to the G1 and that's not bad.


What would be perfect is if there is a Grimlock gimmick and the eyes can switch color...just pure bad-ass! :VEHI:

Well... I actually like this. It is pretty... Sweet looking. Kind of sad that there isn't any erosion on the wings like FrenzyRumble did. That thing looked sweet. But this is cool, too, especially since I like the character.

Already got the Takara Soundwave, but this looks cool too. Glad I got the red-eyed one. ;) I wouldn't be suprised if Hasbro skimps on silver paint though.

Acid Storm is and always has been an easy pass for me, I'm just not interested in the character. The digital camo looks kinda cool though.

Those eyes... I am not sure, but I think I... like the yellow eyes. Much more reminiscent of the original toy, however Soundwave has red eyes in the cartoon, which is what this is supposed to be an homage to. Either way, I really want this.

Now.

ok after seeing these pictures im actually a little interested in acid storm, pricing will decide if i get it or not. And i really really really really want soundwave but im afraid of what the pice is going to be because of those stupid tapes, rather have had them sold separately so i could buy them a little at at time. Hope they relese the price soon so i can start saving, unless its ridiculously expensive then ill just go tell hasbro to shove it up their arse.

You're a brave man. I don't think I'd dare to attempt to touch-up a hundreds of monies worth of toy.

Since this figure was obviously sculpted after the cartoon model I think it should have had red eyes. Wasn't comic-SW purple most of the time anyway?
