Greetings Seibertronians! We've received word from a few fellow Seibertron users (Turned Agent, Praxiusprime77 and -Kanrabat-), we've learned that PrimeVsPrime has done a new review for the forthcoming Netflix Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy Soundwave!

This Soundwave is a retool of his Siege Voyager Class toy, complete with slight redecos/retools of the first Spy Patrol Micromasters (Lazerbeak and Ravage). Soundwave no longer turns into his Siege spaceship alt mode, instead taking on his classic earth mode! Lazerbeak and Ravage under go slight modifications as well with their appearances to better match their earth modes (for example, Lazerbeak sports a new head).

Soundwave is set to release soon but only at Walmart for those who live in the US and Canada (UK fans should keep an eye on Smyths toys)

Here's what PrimeVsPrime has to say about the toys:



Are you getting this version of Soundwave? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I'm not as enthusiastic as PvP, because the back of the tape deck is a pile of scrap and there's hollow parts visible from the front. The Updated cassettes are nice though.

So I guess an impulse purchase if seen live in store, but I'll not be going out of my way to get it.

I'll probably pick it up because I think it looks better than the Siege version but I don't like Ravage so either I'll sell him or just keep him in cassette mode in Soundwave's chest.

I'm in pretty much complete agreement. New Laserbeak looks good, but I don't really care for the new Ravage. I'm worried I won't be able to sell them separately though.

It occurred to me that I don't really want this for the tape deck mode, but more just because it's clean. I might try to get a Siege Soundblaster to have the mold around after I sell my Siege Soundwave.

Also, Buzzsaw when? Maybe that's one of the unannounced Selects sets.

This is interesting to me; Netflix Soundwave looks like a pretty great figure... And yet, it still could be better.
But I will essentially hunt for this figure, because I can't help but think that the next time a G1-esque Soundwave is released, it will most likely be quite different, and imo, be hindered (and possibly ruined) by some sort of gimmick.
Which also means it could be a really long time before we get a better version than this one.

I kinda wish he was packaged with just Lazerbeak... I too could pass on Ravage.
In fact, I wish Ravage was replaced by Frenzy or Rumble.

Either way, I'm really looking forward to this figure; if I can get ahold of it!

I know this will never happen but how cool would it be if they got Peter Cullen to voice Nemesis Prime and he used the Karr voice?

I know this is super random and unrelated lol but I've always wanted an updated, generations style toy of transformers animated Shockwave and when news came of leader class siege shockwave id hoped he was leader class because they were going for the quadruple changer. Just wishful thinking I guess

He kinda already uses that voice in the live action movies. ;)

I think if I can find this in the store, Laserbeak and Ravage are going become my next attempts at customizing a thing.

It's been so long since I've seen that one Knight Rider episode. Cullen does go a bit deeper in the live action films. But not sure if it's close to anything like Venger from D&D or Cindarr from Visionaries, those were great villain voices.

It's mostly on display when he has Prime say his most aggressive lines like, "Give me your face!", "I'll kill you!", "He's going to die," or "We will kill them all."

What I think is funny is that the cassettes have never really been improved upon. The originals still look the best in both modes, and pretty much function the best.

Anyway, that's Prime VS Prime video review of Netflix Spoiler Nemesis Prime.

New preorders at TakaraTomy Mall:

WFC-15 Autobot Impactor
WFC-16 Nemesis Prime

Yep, Takara is releasing Netflix Nemesis despite their having already released their own Siege Nemesis previously.

This came exactly out of nowhere. In a surprise move Takara Tomy Mall is taking pre-orders on a new Siege SG-EX Soundblaster based on his appearance in the Netflix animated series. While mostly similar to the Walmart exclusive 35th Anniversary figure it features less "battle damage" on his chest and a Mercenary faction symbol. There have been no leaks or rumors about a new Soundblaster release aside from speculation of a repaint of Netflix Soundwave retool figure due this month. As an EX figure it will be exclusive to Takara Tomy Mall within Japan. It should be pointed out that this is not being listed specifically as part of the mass retail Netflix line by Takara Tomy in Japan.

It's unknown if Hasbro will ever release this version of the figure which could make it a hard to find collectible for fans trying to complete their Netflix lineup and unwilling to settle for the original Walmart release. Takara Tomy Mall will also be the exclusive seller in Japan to including ER EX-20 Ratchet and Lifeline, ER EX-21 Bluestreak, ER EX-22 Centurion Drone, SG-EX Rainmakers. If you have any thoughts on this release feel free to post them in the Energon Pub forum!

Interesting that for the picture poses they stole Netflix Soundwaves Lazerbeak and Ravage

According to Hasbro Pulse, Soundblaster is Selects and not Earthrise or Netflix, the 2 forums I've seen him posted in. I put the links to Pulse in the Selects thread.

Yeah, it's confusing. TakaraTomy Mall says it's a normal Siege figure while Hasbro Pulse says it's a Selects figure. It appears that Hasbro and Takara are treating this figure differently. Takara is selling it as part of their Siege line in Japan, while Hasbro instead puts it in their imports of Takara's Selects line.
