In the video review found below, reviewer Tef Tef takes a good long look at the figure, which includes the ability to hook up to your mobile device and make the alert sounds for your device. It also contains LED lights to go with the notification sounds. The figure also comes with a funny little phone accessory, making this thing even more goofy.
Check out the video review below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section below!

From what I heard those with Bluetooth support were for people that backed the crowdfunding, and a special "white/movie" edition that will come out later on. Also the Bumble Bee and Megatron were specially for the crowdfunding people also.

Why would anyone collect G1 Soundwave, Ravage and Laserbeak when they're not working devices? G1 Reflector, G1 Megatron, Real Gears, Mi Pad Soundwave, Sega Megatron, Playstation Optimus, etc.
They are scaled down from real INFOBAR mobile phones. However, they are functional as notification devices paired with an actual phone. Same as with the Pebble smartwatch.
You didnt answer my question if these things actually work or not. Its kind of hard to compare a cheap childs play toy from 1984 to an expensive 2017 homage toy geared towards adult collectors. With that being said, find me one adult that feels the need to carry around a transformable working cell phone? Or if your argument would be that these are "play phones" meant for kids, please try to explain the adult collector price...
Yes, I did. It's quoted in your reply.
(Not liking the answer is not the same thing.)
On the other hand, you didn't answer any of mine.

It was seen as a rather different looking phone at the time, with clunky buttons and mosaic design. Recently, AU wanted to celebrate the design (or some design awards did) and so it went into partnership with Takara to make some TFs, much in the same way we've have tablet Soundwave, that Chevolet bot for DOTM, etc.
That's it. There's nothing really else to add. It's not aimed at kids but collectors, as a curiosity piece.

I doubt they will be available at BBTS. Ebay or Yahoo! Auctions Japan are probably more likely to have them.
