Primal Prime has provided the web with great comparison images between both versions of Transformers Leader Soundwave. The latest release which is exclusive to Target for the Bumblebee movie line (and now thanks to the latest trailers, we know why this is happening) and the previous release is from the Titans Return line.

Edited: He does come with his shoulder cannon and rifle, both in a plastic bag in the right side of the package. They are both the same molds as the Titans return version, with the rifle painted silver and the shoulder cannon painted with new red paint details on the missile tips.

We also see how different the deco is with the Bumblebee movie release having darker paint apps. The biggest difference is in the alt mode, of course, where we see retooled speakers. There is also a lot of added deco for details like the channel tuning. The Titan Master component also has deco differences.

Which do you preffer? Let us know!

Well, I can be honest when I say that I do not think I need that Soundwave at all.

Does this cost as much as the previous release? Because, if so, there is no excuse for the weapons to be omitted. That knowledge has just shifted this from a "maybe" to a definite "no". I imagine I will not be alone in this sentiment.

Yes, it is 50$ USD. I dont udnerstand it either since I thought it was all part of the same master mold (on the same sprues). I dont get the reason for this omission.

Quick note here.. the Bumblebee movie Soundwave DOES come with the weapons. The shoulder cannon and a silver rifle are included in a plastic bag in the right side of the package. They are both the same molds as the Titans return version, but the rifle is silver and the shoulder cannon has new red paint detail on the missile tips.

Are we sure this wasn't just Primal Prime's bad luck him not coming with weapons? He had them at SDCC and that was a finished product at the time.

The Bumblebee Movie Soundwave DOES come with his gun and shoulder cannon. It is in a little bag that is attached to the inside of the packaging on the right side of the box. Is it possible that your's did not come with one or maybe it got thrown away?

Oh no! Quick, Primal Prime! Go pull that box out of the trash! :shock:

I actually do like the new player sculpt better. Though not enough to buy the toy again.

Since I never bothered to buy Soundwave (or Blaster), I went ahead and picked this one up.

Easily forgotten-in-the-package parts? This pleases Dark Crumplezone.

There is another. Does anyone have Movie the Best Soundwave? Apparently, he comes with a missile for his non included gun. I never saw that missile and learnt of this way after throwing away the box.

Weird, never heard of that. Source on that info? All the MB stuff displayed accessories pretty prominently so I'm skeptical. I can believe it, just surprised if it's true. Mine would also be in the garbage if so.

My source is TF Wiki

Released as part of TakaraTomy's Transformers Movie The Best toyline to conclude the 10th anniversary of the live-action film series, this Soundwave is an extensive redeco of his Human Alliance toy, without the Laserbeak and the Mr. Gould figure. Bizarrely, the missile from Laserbeak is included—with nothing to fire it from, it is best used as a club to beat unsuspecting Autobots... provided that you manage to fit it in Soundwave's incredibly wide grip.

EDIT: I checked several video reviews and none mention it. In fact, most mention the fact that he comes devoid of any accessoies. So either all of us have that missile in the garbage, or TFWiki is lieing through their teeth.

Eh, probably just wrong, mistakes happen :) I'm sure if we crowdsourced our database, approvals of bad info would happen sometimes as well.

The (volunteering) editors do like to jump the accessory from time to time I've noticed. The TR Soundwave redeco missing his seems to be another...

I just checked the TakaraTomy Mall listing for the accessory count: no missile mentioned, just the figure and instructions.

I am just glad I am not missing an accessory. I personally do not care much for accessories (especially useless ones as this would have been the case) but I like knowing that the toy I bought has kept its value even if I never sell it. And losing an accessory would definitely hurt that.

I do, but I don't recall missile, I'll have to check the box.

Another thing of note about the new Bee Soundwave, if it hasn't been mentioned. His visor is iridescent yellow and quite striking. I spotted some at Target on Monday and gave em a good eyeballing.

All that dark grey on the arms and thighs is quite ugly though.

Some really cool remolding and the blue is much closer to the G1 toy where the TR is almost purple in comparison. I'm good with my TR version though.

Went hunting, found the legion Prime and Bee, and the cassettes set. Sadly, no Barricade, Hot Rod, or Soundwave.
