Our offering today in terms of new toy galleries - a staple feature of Seiberton.com - is once more from the Transformers Titans Return line: Leader class Soundwave, with Titan Master Soundblaster! That's right, Soundblaster the clone/rebuild of Soundwave from the original cartoon series finds its way into the new toy line in the form of a Headmaster under a new name, though still sporting the blue and grey colours of the bigger robot. As for the Decepticon communications specialist himself, this being the Hasbro version we get yellow visor, and a general retool and redeco of the Blaster mold, complete with base mode, boombox/audio dock hybrid mode and compatibility with the Legends class figures. Check out a sample from the galleries below, and click on any of the images to view the full works!

Man, Soundwave looks good. I just found Ravage, Rumble and Lazerbeak today and my Soundwave should arrive tomorrow from BBTS with Tak Computron. What a great birthday weekend!

I skipped Leader Class Starscream, but now that I have Leader Soundwave and Megatron, I'm wondering if I should reconsider just to have the trio in scale.

I would go for it. Having the main cons in leader scale would be pretty sweet... if you can afford it mind you, but still a cool concept

This has just become a priority on my list to get along with Leader Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker. The only thing I don't like about TR Soundwave is the yellow visor, but eh....details. Definitely a good looking TF.

You could always go Takara for the red visor.

I actually thought about that Kurona. Honestly part of me was thinking about doing a very low-tech solution with it and use a red sharpie on his visor instead. :D

This really looks nice, but being on a budget, I'll probably just get Blaster, as this mold fits him more and I have the YOTG MP Soundwave.
Also...coreect me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the first time we get a minion compatible Soundwave that does NOT include any minions at all? WFC didn't come with any either, but there weren't any made for him, even Prime Soundwave came with either Ravage or Laserbeak, even if they were simple.

I kinda want the Headmaster because of how morbid it is (also, it's Mini-Soundwave!), but the rest of him is rather poofy-looking (which somehow doesn't look as bad on Blaster).

wfc wasn't compatible if I remember correctly

Yeah. WFC had no minions and wasn't compatible with any. I have FoC Soundwave (and minions) and he's kind of my "Generations" Soundwave stand-in for the moment. Not a bad size being a voyager and the minions are also nice to have too. Just he's a Cybertronian car instead of a stereo, but with fiddling he could be a Cybertronian stereo.

Yeah, so far Voyager FoC Soundwave is easily the best CHUG Soundwave we have. He's the right size, he looks great, has good articulation... it's all good. And even though the minions are simple, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw still work very nicely.

Plus FIRRIB. Can't forget FIRRIB. :P

I do wish I could get Buzzsaw without getting Soundblaster though. But I do love how all of the minions are represented mostly.

Eeeeh... I really don't like their Rumble or Frenzy. Or their Ravage, for that matter. They look a bit crap to me so I'd rather go with other versions.

I wish I could get Buzzsaw without getting Soundblaster too... mostly because I got Soundblaster and I lost Buzzsaw :BOOM: :BOOM: :BOOM:

FoC Soundblaster is my generations Soundwave (and the reason I have no Laserbeak) and I was content to keep him like that, but then this gallery happened...

That was a big selling point for me with FoC Soundwave and Blaster. Being able to have a good lineup of their minions. It's a shame that autotransform gimmick wrecked their designs so much.

Admittedly, the designs for the bird and cat characters aren't great here but they're a little better. At least Laserbeak and Buzzsaw have feet this time.

I pre-ordered the Takara version of Galvatron, appreciating the better attention to detail on the paint apps (silver painted face, red belt buckle, etc.) and hoping that the "soap" lavender color was just a function of stock photography with bad color correction. It was not the case. >.< I've since picked up the Hasbro version, and while the purple is a little too dark, and some of the nice red paint apps are missing, it still looks a lot closer to the cartoon for JUST the shade of purple used. I was going to attempt to kitbash the two, swapping some parts around to get some of the extra paint apps on Hasbro's Galvatron, but the construction is a bit more complicated than I had originally anticipated, necessitating disassembling the entire torso to switch the shoulder pads, for instance. Also, I can NOT get that weird little purple piece to come out of the top of the canon, even with the screw removed. I'm just settling for swapping the headmaster units for now, giving Hasbro's Galvatron a nice silver-painted face.

As for Leader Soundwave, he looks great, if still just a bit too big for my proper "Classics" display shelves. The FoC Voyager version from a few years ago will continue to fill the "neo G1" role. For his minions, I think the best Rumble and Frenzy are actually the recent Transformers Adventure release. They've got that great combination of G1 detail and general silhouette with an updated alt-mode. The new Titans Return versions look good, but the mold fits Blaster's humanoid cassette buddies much better. I'm not sure on Laserbeak and Buzzsaw yet. Their Titans Return versions are good, but I do like their data disks forms from FoC, and they actually work with that figure, which is still in my current display. Same goes for data disk Ratbat (I wonder if he will get a Titans Return update?). So far, nothing has really surpassed the Universe 2008 Ravage that came with Hound 8 years ago. Heck, every Classics iteration of him seems to get worse. I just can't get behind table-cat with butt wings.
