    Is it worth the purchase? I'm looking at the figure and I don't find it all that remarkable.....Can someone who has it tell me if its worth the price?

    It's the Ratchet/Ironhide mold, which personally I'm not a fan of. I think the original Shattered Glass Soundwave is better. That would be the Music Label Soundwave in ipod white. Slap on a red Decepticon insignia from Capturedprey and you're good to go.

    Don't buy it if you don't like the character.

    I do. He's great.

    Yeah, this is the kind of question only you can answer. Is he worth it for me? No, but if you like it, and money isn't a problem, you buy that shit right now son.

    granted it's not my fave in the set I bought, but it's pretty decent; plus-- not to mention obviously, it breaks up the other blue and red releases in the set! :lol

    I have the original repurposed ML/SG Soundwave, it's great rendition of the figure, although I also ordered the new one. Waiting to see how it looks on the shelves together before deciding which one to keep. :)

    I'll take whichever one you decide to sell. I had to sell my Music Label a few months back. Frankly I think one is just as good as the other, as both versions appear in official canon.

    Ironhide mold with Soundwave head just cannot blend together from the looks of it

    We've only seen pictures so far. I've seen reviews of Treadshot and Ultra Magnus on youtube, but no Tracks, Overlord, or Soundwave yet. I like to hear other peoples thoughts and it's a lot better than looking at still pictures.

    I personally don't think so. Shattered Glass + Stupid head + okayish mold + insane botcon prices = no buy for me

    Doesn't mesh? Huh? I don't think that's much of a complaint at all, especially since this head was sculpted to not be perpetually looking down like the "official" heads.

    The figure really does not look like it's Ironhide or Ratchet pretending to be someone else. It's very much its own thing.
