    Appreciate the preview and glad they improved on the QC issues. It does look really cool!

    I am usually not too critical about transformers in general, but when it comes to these unlicensed products, I am not too impressed with BTS. I don't mind the expense on some of the 3rd party stuff, but when I do consider spending a big chunk of my hard earned money, I don't want to buy something from a company who "knows how to fix something when it's been broken". I want to buy products from a company who knows how to do it right the first time. But thats just me.

    You are the man Protoman! I always see the Music Label Soundwave as the definitive modern Soundwave but that is just me. Great review! :thumbs2:

    Thanks for the review. However, it confirmed that G1 Soundwave and Device Label Soundwave are superior to Sonicron and Soundblaster. Far superior.

    i agree with you guys.

    yet.. i'm still holding out hope that hasbro will do soundwave some justice.

    a new generations line with springer, arcee, and soundwave would be awesome.

    I'll wait for more reviews, maybe they only sent you the best sample they had. My blue Sonicron is full of suck and I'm not sure I'll spend that much money again on that mold.

    Great review. Too bad I don't want the black one. It's the one with all of the problems fixed, whereas I do want the blue one but its a piece of shit. If they ever sell out of the 1st release blue version (unlikely at this point), perhaps Soundwave will be re-released using the newer Soundblaster corrected mold. My guess is Soundwave will only sell out after it is severely discounted, and as a result no reseller will ever order more "corrected" units. We are most likely stuck with that shitty blue version. This is BTS' fault for not having their mold in proper order the first time.

    I totally agree, the blue Sonicron has a lot of issues, but atleast they are absent in the black one..... the problem (much like Mastermind Creations) is convincing the buyer to invest again after a first burn

    Cool review, cool toy, cool reviewer as well but I think I'll hold out for the new soundwave Mp being done by the guys that are doing ratchet and ironhide, that seems set to be the definitive soundwave of all time!!

    I have the first release and love it, so If this one has the problems fixed, I'd be willing to get it as well.

    ill be getting it because its black and i collect everything soundwave and soundblaster.

    but this figure still has issues. when i did my first review it was the proto and was garbage. they sent me an official one, and yes joints were tighter and things seemed to fit better but it still had issues.

    the really could have designed the whole tab folding gimmick at the waist and not have it sticking out like it does and the legs could have been better.

    i still like the figure but if i am going to complain about anything, its the way they made the pegs. they are odd shapes and thin and can easily stress and break. they changed those to pegs that were rounded it would be better for multiple transformations.

    also trying to get the peg out of one of the guns is a pain since you can not with a finger.

    The logic for many stems from the fact that the TRU Reissue Soundwave of 2007-08 came in a Classics style box..... outside of that.... no major reason.

    Great review. Just got my blue version Sonicon in but haven't opened the fella yet. Glad to see they addressed issues in the black version.

    I can be patient. Just waiting for them to release the blue one with the issued fixed. I'm one of those guys for whom a $10 drop in price could also seal the deal. I'll be pissed if they even THINK about raising the price just because they've fixed the issues.
