Why is that Linkin Park Soundwave not gold chrome? He looks like a knock-off was put in there instead of the actual thing.

Why is Predaking holding the TF:P Star Sabre?

Can someone who is there PLEASE ask about the status of the Masterpiece cars coming the US? If there's a chance they're coming out in the states, I don't have to import... if they say there are no plans... then... bleh... costly G1 Ark crew for me spread out over several years.

Maybe you're not squinting enough? :lol: It's a bit unreasonable to expect it NOT to look like a KO, at this point. Have you seen the 12 in. and 16 in. non-TF's Hasbro just released? Chinese-KO's all the way!!!! Except they have Hasbro logo's... 8-}

Also, that Star Saber comes with the new Predaking. Bonus item! :shock:

I think someone has it out for Omega Supreme leaving him in such poor display. I hope it's just temporary as the opening hour approaches. He's without his cannon-like antenna on his head, he's missing claw's and he doesn't have his rockets on his left shoulder. #-o :VEHI:

Still hate that Linkin Park Soundwave. :SICK:

Oh well. At least the BBTS exclusives look nice.

I know that mistransformation is nothing new, but this is ridiculous. Almost every toy here has something wrong with it. I mean geez would you look at poor Dreadwing there? There is no possible way that anyone could look at that and go, "yep, I think that's how it's supposed to go."

It's just stupidity now. it's like they strung the figures out, glued them to their mounting plaques, and called it done. I've seen toddlers leave toys in better condition.

But seriously, whoever is putting out these displays is making Hasbro's product look bad. Somebody needs to be reassigned to another job.

Seriously someone at SDCC needs to give Hasbro's staff in charge of the display an instruction manual for almost every figure. So many mistransformations it's got to be embarrassing for people at Hasbro that know how to read an instruction manual. #-o

:lol: Have they forgotten that Linkin Park Soundwave needs a paintjob?

Soundwave and Acid Storm are up for order. Got mine!

I just noticed that the back of the box for Masterpiece Soundwave shows that hasbro is going with the Rumble is red and Frenzy is blue.

At 6 AM central time?!?? :shock: I just checked @ 9 AM CST, and the TRU listing is unavailable, and the eBay listing is not there! :BANG_HEAD:

Oh well, I'm off to the local stores. Hopefully, they're stocked! :-)

"Omega Supreme: sad. Status: in need of a hug." 8-}

They still look nice as usual.

Weird how Grimlock is a painted sample even though we've seen the chromed one already.

Cool about the Star Saber. I guess they decided Predaking doesn't have a big enough sword. Which is correct. :lol:

What's this rumor about Hasbro MP Soundwave not having chrome? He's got chrome in the pics!

According to TRU employee, Soundwave is not currently in the TRU system - which would explain why you can't check store availability online. It ALSO means TRU has no way to even track the figure. Even worse, this could be just like the Chinese TF's they had a while back: I found those on the shelves, but when I went to check out, there was literally no price. And the checkout employees were so clueless that they were going to OVERCHARGE me.

Soooooo.... long story short, it's premature to head out and look for Soundwave (or Acid Storm). Plus, it's 95 degrees here in IL, so I REALLY wasted my time this morning. :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD:

I love all of this. I'm getting afraid about Predaking though. We haven't seen him with any accessories except for the feet, head, and new sword. Is Hasbro not going to include the rest of his accessories? Someone please tell me otherwise.

New color - Off Gold. What a shame, my all time favorite mold but not when they do that to it.

The gold on grimmy's chest doesn't match the claws on the wrists, the legs etc....unlike the Takara version, regular retail Hasbro version does as well actually, although more Off-Gold.

Predaking!!! Yay G1 molds!

That little Scoop looks like a ton of fun!
