    I believe Soundwave reissue came with Laserbeak and Ravage. No other tapes have been reissued (not sure what comes with Blaster though).

    if you see them at botcon, they'll be overpriced. by a large, large margin.

    Soundwave only came with Laserbeak.
    Soundblaster came with Buzzsaw and Ravage.

    Soundwave ~$100+ that seems to be the going price on Ebay
    Reissue Blitzwing $30 to $40 ... he should still be relatively easy to find.
    E-hobby Astrotrain .... Good luck and if you do find him expect to pay $200+ for him ... he disappeared quickly. If you just want the regular Takara reissue of Astrotrain, he should be in the same price range as Blitzwing

    Reissue Soundwave--- $199.99 on ebay

    Reissue Blitzwing--- Overcharge is $40 or something at Digital Toys, Bltizwing will prolly run you about the same

    Reissue Astrotrain (E-Hobby exclusive Anime colors)---$225 from anyone selling it

    I saw a Blitzwing at Botcon last year, but no Soundwaves or anime Astrotrains. Doubtful they would be there in 2006, but you never can tell what dealers will bring. Before I went to a Botcon I had these fanciful visions of being able to find almost anything I wanted from the history of Transformers toys and that is not really the case.

    Actually I think I saw one (and only one) going for about $270 or so. But I don't believe there were any Soundwaves.

    Prices are always better with Ebay...right before Botcon. Most people who are going are saving up for the show. My BEST scores have been the years I hit Ebay hard and then went to the con. Years ago I scored Liokaiser, Raiden Soundblaster, Twincast & 2 of the heads...rolled into Botcon with food money and about $20 beyond that. Out of my entire haul I saw one piece from that list, and it was almost as much as my entire haul :)
