Generation 2 Optimus And Masterpiece Soundwave Reissued Under Year Of The Goat Platinums

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Cybergeeks Alliance has reported that Asian toy retailers have received solicitations for Transformers Platinum Edition sets from Hasbro. Up first? Year of the Goat Optimus Prime is a translucent redeco of the Generation 2 Laser Optimus Prime mold, you may also know the mold as Car Robots/Robots In Disguise Black Convoy/Scourge. Not to be outdone, Year of the Goat Soundwave comes along and brings the awesome as a clear redeco of the Masterpiece Soundwave with the following cassettes: Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Laserbeak, and Buzzsaw.

Both exclusives are done mostly in translucent, uncolored plastic, with black, pink and red strewn about, along with strategically placed metallic burnt orange paint apps.

You can see the Cybergeek Alliance's links here for Optimus:

And here for Soundwave:

The brown clashes with the translucent plastic ... yet I'm still likely to get Prime.

But again, another Chinese year ... another missed opportunity ... this time Ramulus.

I think MP Soundwave in particular looks great. I think those cassettes are going to be the highlight of my shelf once I get my hands on them.

Might snag that Optimus Prime just for teh lulz. Always kinda wanted a version of this guy.

I think I'd rather have a blue Soundwave than this dude. Maybe if they knock some off the price, but as it stands, I'm good.

It's pretty obvious now Hasbro Asia has no intention on using BW molds, at all. Just a big version of Optimus Prime and a complimenting release. Thinking about it now, next year, Optimal Optimus or bust (though he's an ape, not a monkey)!

I am quite surprised (yet not) they've pulled out one of the best vintage molds out there for Optimus this year. Given I already own two of him (Black Convoy and the G2 Laser reissue) I'll be skipping him. Do keep in mind the discs will be blank and the sword blunted.

Completely agree... Brown and Translucent clashes pretty bad here... The Translucent is still pretty nice, which makes me wonder about painting the brown to be more formal colors of their G1 ages...

Not a fan of this Optimus Prime mold... Soundwave I picked up his recent Master Piece edition so this I think is going to be a definite skip for me... First time in awhile that I will skip these Chinese Year editions... First for everything I suppose.

after the colorful year of the horse...these look awful.
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

Not something I would rush to buy, but I do kind of like them! If I didn't have MP Soundwave, I would certainly consider him in this form. As for Prime, I've owned that mold a couple times now, and while I now only have a (really beaten) Scourge figure with just the cab, I think the price will prevent me from grabbing this. Not nearly as good as last year's Year of the Horse Prime (which I own), but still pretty cool.

Oh, and I love that box art!

...until you shine light through them!

Though that hardly outweighs the fragility (the animal cassettes are gonna' look and crumble like rock candy) and the missed opportunity to paint all 5 cassettes into MP versions of different characters.

And yet...clear "stealth mode" Ravage actually makes perfect sense.

Sure you could pretend they all just used Decepticon invisibility spray...if you can stand thinking about Attack of the Autobots, which I can't, seeing as it's David Wise's first and worst episode, making it hurt so much worse than a lousy throw-away episode by a writer whose later work didn't define the G1 cartoon's mythology.

I have never been more thoroughly on the fence about any TFs than I am right now. It gives so many fans what they asked for: more MP Soundwave and friends! And yet, while it doesn't miss the mark, it just sort of grazes it. My buying it may hinge on whether it actually shows up in TRU, and how long it hangs around.

Yeah, clear plastic figures usually equate to "invisibility" or "ghost" versions of the characters, which are cool.
