I see this kind of like soundblaster: people who do buy it will be doing so mostly for Ravage, because lets be honest, it makes a good "stealth" ravage.

Granted, that color scheme is ugly as hell. Also, I see no use to owning that because I already own the Hasbro MP Soundwave set.

However, I'm still very happy with this set.
Why?
DAT BOX.
It's writings are in English, Spanish, and... FRENCH! Which mean this will be available in Quebec and it's a good sign for things to come.

At last! T'was about fakking time! :DANCE:

Absolute and complete garbage.. ESPECIALLY when you consider the fact that hasbro should've figured out a way to release soundblaster with ratbat.. There's no reason and no need for this.

Pffff speak for yourself. YOTG Soundwave looks awesome, and I'm super psyched for it. It's nice to see that Hasbro and Takara are willing to try new things and put out interesting, out-of-left-field pieces using MP molds.

As a Japanese Headmasters character, releasing Soundblaster (and subsequently Ratbat) in the US would be tough. If you want it so bad, stop griping and just buy it. A bunch of places are selling him at reduced prices these days.

At first I thought he was pure garbage, but he has grown on me and I am VERY tempted! Got both SW and SB and all the cassettes and the rare 'completionist' side of me has reared it's ugly head :lol: This really is an interesting take and if the clear plastic holds up I wont be able to resist.

I also agree about a U.S. release of SB, if his price has dropped then why not?

Now that I've watched the review I'm going to have to get him #-o

Just hope he is still available in a month or so, a lot of stuff being released atm and I've got to spread em out a little.

I'm sure somebody else has already said this but that deco really almost resembles Machine Wars Soundwave.

I LUB me some tranzlucentz!
I really like the clear with the bronze scheme. I'm just not sure of the usage. His head is lacking something. Maybe if his face plate where bronze or just his helmet. Still pretty cool just from a "strange and wonderful" perspective. I'm set for this mold though.
That Lazor Prime may be another story. :D

I still stand by the idea that this should be re-purposed as Shattered Glass Soundblaster. The colors are nice warm tones and whites and would suit a heroic character.

Plus, it even has the sort of "limited exclusivity" that Shattered Glass toys are famous for!

I... don't think anyone has mentioned that, actually.

Has Takara stated that they will see the calendar through to the end? That we will get 12 different Primes plus 1 other figure under the 12 years of the calendar?

No statement, but it is implied.

Though, this is Hasbro Asia, rather than Takara.

So glad this looks so awful. I was only interested in the cassettes but they're simply wretched. Glad for money saved.

Soon there's going to be a Year of the Cow and by the looks of that Soundwave and Prime, it's going to get uglier. Picture ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime in yellow, green, purple, and orange. That's the whole rainbow right there.
