    He's out in Asia, but not at TRU stores in North America. No idea when he will show up either.

    Have a feeling they're waiting for the swarm of movie merchandise to release so they can put him out there with them.

    I'm hoping that he comes out soon. Soundwave is one of the few G1 molds that I like and am interested in getting a hold of. Seeing that an origional would be too costly for me, and that he's being reissued with the 2-tape deck, I'm excited about getting him. Peace out.

    Same here, Eric. Same here. Let's hope no little kids buy em all. Knowing the undisciplined, they'll destroy a beautiful re-issue. o\/o

    This company, KoolToyz, has them on preorder again for February (got his first round in wave 1). I'm guessing this co-ordinates with the US release, and the decemeber with the hong kong. THey also (briefly) got the Target Ultra Magnus vs. Skywarp last week, right as it came out in Hong Kong. SO i'm guessing that they have access to both markets.

    And for all those saying 'hey I'll go check TRU'

    :dunce  :dunce  :dunce 

    C'mon. The release date will be all over this and other TF news sites before and as it comes out, so OF COURSE its not out yet.

    Oh, and Ravage's sticker is pictured here. It's the human/bot image (soundblaster version?), not the shadowed planets of the original.

    And yet further, is this even a 'g1' mold? It is a recoloring of the Soundblaster mold. Was that not an entirely new mold itself mimicing the G1 soundwave?

    Soundblaster was a modified Soundwave mold. They modified the door hinge so it was on the outside of the chest rather than the inside like the original Soundwave mold had. That was the only major difference that I'm aware of other than the color being black.
