The price of Soundwave is one of the reasons why it probably wasn't the best time for to get back into the Transformers. I have issues with the car, Roku, and computer, and I need to track down one of those new Funko Pop figures of Axl Rose. They make Slash and Duff as well but as I may have said in an earlier thread, I have limited space for toys these days due to having to move back in with the folks. Yeah, I'm currently for the most part unemployed. I repair computers for a living but these days, most people seem to just rely on smartphones, tablets, or really cheap laptops, so they just replace them instead of fix them.
I did order a really cool Optimus Prime figure off of Amazon the other day from China or Japan but despite the 98% positive reviews, I'm starting to think its counterfeit. Its really hard to tell at times, and easy at others. Like there are a few on Amazon that are obviously fakes since Optimus has blue feet instead of silver (I'm referring to the film version). But if it looks as good as it does in the pics, and isn't made totally flimsy, I'll be happy regardless and it'll be kind of nostalgic since back when I was a kid my uncle used to take me to the swap meet to get my Transformers and I know some of them were either counterfeit or something because they had actual spring loaded weapons, the ones at T'RU looked identical but did not have spring loaded weapons.
