I think I want both!

I already have the Takara Soundwave but even when the $s have been converted to £s this may be a reasonable way of obtaining all the cassettes plus a Soundwave for the office desk.

Ugh! I just don't know which Soundwave to get- Takara or Hasbro? Is eye coloring the only difference between these two??? If so, I'll go with Hasbro because with the cassettes included it is by far the better deal...and I can color in Soundwave's eyes. If I go the Takara route then I could easily be looking at $120+ more than the Hasbro version. That's a lot to pay for G1 accurate eye color. However, if there are other differences (build quality, etc) then I'm not sure which one to pickup.

Acid Storm is a definite buy. I don't why but I just like this figure. Definitely unique looking.

i definitely want soundwave....not sure when or even if the canadian toys r us will have this so i may have to spend the extra money to get him from the american site.

and i love that he has the megatron gun, because since he's the right size...i can put that baby in starscream's hand instead!!

and am i wrong or is his transformation just as easy and simple as the original toy? because as awesome as these masterpiece figures are, the ones i have (the original big Prime, Megatron and the 3 seekers) are just so complicated. lol

i think this will make a nice "congrats on being hired at work and not being agency anymore" present for myself. :P

Actually the Hasbro Soundwave has G1 Accurate eye color. The G1 Soundwave toy had yellow eyes.

He's probably referring to the cartoon. Both are G1... just depends on whether you want toy or cartoon accuracy.

The red visor fits better with the Decepticon vibe, IMHO.

IMO I think this is stupid and I don't recall this happening before honestly. Why would TRU do something like this? You don't wave a piece of food to a starving animal and not feed it unless your evil I suppose. This can only stir the madness even more and if that is their goal then congrats to you TRU. :APPLAUSE:

So how can they post it but not for sale or pre-order? I hope it's not a simple answer of "because they can". Can you imagine the zero hour til this thing goes on sale?

For those that stay up late regularly no problem but everyone else is gonna be doped up on coffee and energy drinks waiting to buy! :VEHI:

TRU does this constantly, and they're renowned among businesses for listing items not actually available. It's annoying, but it's toys. I'm sure people will survive. :D

Thank God this is happening after a pay day. So how does this work if I'm ordering from TRU's website? I've created an account and added it to my wish list but the site doesn't seem very user-friendly.

What is everyone's recommendations? Login at midnight 7/18 and pray my order goes through?

Posted by G1 Legacy on July 1st, 2013 @ 1:45pm CDT
Soundwave was my very first Transformer back in ‘84 so I am DEFINATLEY getting this. Already got my TRU connection on the case (literally lol). :lol:


Those that know me best here in the forums will no doubt tell you that I can be a real hardcase when it comes to bitching about decisions being made at Hasbro and TFCC in general…but I want to take this opportunity to say something positive for a change regarding the TRU Soundwave. As soon as I figured out that MP-10 would be seeing a stateside release as a TRU exclusive, I had a feeling that that would soon be the case for most (if not all) future Takara Masterpiece figures. It just made sense, especially with the 30th anniversary coming up combined with how well the Matty MOTU (He-Man) line has done for that fan base of adult collectors. Anyway, sure enough Soundwave is announced as the next exclusive last year and then we find out that all 5 of the original ‘84 cassettes would be included (something that Takara didn’t seem to be polite enough to do). When they announced the extra cassettes, I thought to myself “Great, this will be a blatant cash grab and will no doubt cost a fortune.” But if this announcement on the MSRP is correct then it will be the same price as MP Optimus, and I think that is something to be commended for. My biggest complaint about this hobby lately has been the inconsitant and manipulative pricing that seems to be going on all across the board with every size/class figure line. I mean Toys R Us even raised the price of the remaining DOTM inventory to $16 to match the other newer deluxe class figure on the pegs, are you f’ing kidding me! At first I thought that was a mispriced error but nope, sure enough. That toyline is over 2 yrs old. I don’t mind paying a fair price for any product from any company but this price gouging for plastic is seriously becoming more than I can handle in this hobby, the most recent case being the Rain Maker seekers released over the weekend. The eBay prices for that and TFSS Scourge are just absurd. So kudos to Hasbro for keeping the price point for Soundwave at a reasonable and consistant level. I just hope they can manage to get more than two cases per store with this one. I noticed with MP Optimus last year that smaller cities only got two cases (4 figures total) but larger cities got a few times that amount. Yeah, I get it, demographics and all but if you don’t religiously check your store daily in person your just S.O.L. I’m thinking atleast 8 should be good for each store.

Now regarding Acidstorm…‘meh. I’ll pick him up IF I ever see him being liquidated. To me a Skywarp would have been a better choice even though he had a Wally World run several years ago, but he hasn’t been released stateside with the new MP seeker mold update which would be nice to buy off the shelf here. I just think a black versionn would sell better than puke green even to non TF customers. And that could have lead up to a 4th quarter 2014 release of MP Starscream updated mold. C’mon that would have made sense and you would have gotten a matching stateside seeker trio within 16 months or so. Just saying…

It's hard to believe this will sell out that fast... And if it does, it's even harder to believe Hasbro won't ship a second batch!

Again, this "unannounced-as-a-limited-run" strategy perplexes me: surely it's in Hasbro's best interests to overproduce versus underproduce, right? :???:

Anyway, I guess I'll try a midnight buy on Soundwave, as well, just in case.

But Thundercracker stuck around for such a long time, it makes me question how hard these will be to find! :roll:

Unfortunately, what Hasbro produces is dictated by the retailers. Especially since Hasbro has been in such a tight spot financially, it's hard to imagine them overproducing and then just crossing their fingers - even if it is one of the most popular characters and best MPs ever. It's all dictated by TRU, so we have them to blame :grin:

I don't know if I would say TRU is "renown" per se for that practice. They're more like, infamous. ;) At least we might avoid last year's riotting when the shipping dates for the Optimus Prime pre-orders kept getting pushed back, even as product starting appearing in brick and mortor stores.

The transformation is essentially the same with some slight tweaks.

He looks ok and those 5 taps are big bonuses and increase the funability factor. To bad he only transformes into a box. If you ask me, the toy would have been much better if it had a real radio inside. Its kind of a waste of mp plastic for this mould. But I just might buy it.

He's a cassette player, not a radio. You're thinking of Blaster, who doubled as a cassette player and a radio (whose original toy was actually designed to accomodate the necessary gizmos needed for a radio to work).

Who and why did they come up with this paint deco? It looks ridiculous. How does florescent green camouflage work on a plane? I'm guessing it's useful when flying Mach 3 through a dense jungle.

They do that so it's hard to see when they're grounded. Militaries do it all the time. For example:

I have a love hate relationship with TRU as most people do. I will attempt an order on 7/18 hoping that it is Eastern time and I only have to stay up until 11 to try to get one. I wonder if they will enforce a one per customer policy...would hope that if they do we would know beforehand. My brick and mortar is infamous to say the least. I had more trouble getting Rodimus and Grimlock than Prime. But Prime rolled in slow and I got one out of the 6 cases that came in. Then all of a sudden there were 8 cases stacked on the top shelf that sat there unopened. Then of course there was a buy one get one half off deal and the boxes mysteriously dissappeared :-? . I complained but got nowhere...then magically the boxes reappeared after the sale was over :shock: !! I would have loved to pick up another two so I could display two in different modes and keep one in box. Lately I cannot find anything at my TRU other than Grimwing last week. The Dark of The Moon crap is clogging the shelves and I heard the last two Hasbro reps for our area had been fired...sheesh wonder why. I never see a rep anymore. >:oP

They've removed the little green check mark that used to be next to "Available in Stores". I hope that's because they realized it was premature to say that since it's not in stores yet, and that they didn't change it because they decided it's never going to be in stores.

I'm sure the stores are just sick of people calling them to see if they have it and decided to get that removed so they don't have to get someone just to man the phones....

Soundwave was in bot mode and all the cassettes were in cassette modes in their cases I'm pissed off though cause my laserbeak is already broke the fin on his jetpack was really tight when transforming and snapped off if it was buzzsaw I wouldn't care cause my plan for him was to leave him in Soundwaves chest and put laserbeak on his ARM maybe when they get more in stock I will try to exchange it

That issue is apparently endemic to that mold. It's been pretty well known about on the Takara version.

Yeah, having had the takara ones for months, my word to the wise on the MP cassettes is to be careful as hell. If you try to force anything or move anything too quickly, you're gonna be stuck with paint damage, or worse. They are not meant to be played with over and over, unfortunately.

Well, there was a package in the mail today, so now Megatron and Starscream have some new friends...

Image

Annoyingly, Ravage's head was upside down! I was able to fix it... After hammering out two pins, flipping some parts around, hammering the pins back in, trimming a bit of plastic around a still upside down but inaccessible joint so that it would bend in the correct direction, and filling in some paint now missing (because of that necessary trimming) with the use of a silver Sharpie... So yeah, that sucked. But that was the only issue I can see so far.
