    I don't think hasbro has said anything about us getting a Cyb Soundwave repaint. It would be a definite must-buy for me though.:thumb

    Those look nice. Are those supposedly Hasbro Prototypes?

    Yeah I'm pretty sure that's Lazerbeak. Would be cool if he ended up repainted as Buzzsaw. Too bad for all those people that shelled out $60 or more for the Toy dream Soundblaster if this Hasbro repaint comes out...

    One thing to bear in mind: Hasbro has yet to mass release anything released as a Toys Dream Project exclusive by Takara. Likewise, they've never released any Japanese exclusive in the main line. They want to respect the exclusive nature of those pieces.

    Takara of course repays this by taking a US store exclusive and slapping a USA edition sticker on it.

    Yeah, that always seemed asnine to me.

    Hasbro: "We respect the exclusivity of Takara's exclusive TFs."

    Takara: "We're going to do what we want with your exclusives Hasbro!"

    Maybe Hasbro is finally giving Takara the middle finger on this one?

    Do Ariel Paradron Type and BotCon 2005 Chromia count?

    Does Nemesis Breaker count?

    I wouldn't think so -- they're different enough. Besides, It's not like Chromia was a retail release. It was decidedly cheaper to get hold of the Ariel Paradron Type, wasn't it?

    It wasn't a TDP exclusive -- just exclusive to TRU in Japan. And, however slight, there appear to be some differences.

    Like Dark Ligerjack, Buildron was a TRU exlclusive, not TDP.

    And the PVCs were chase figures, not exclusives.

    When Dark Ligerjack was released in Japan, I was confident we'd get a Hasbro version based on the fact that Hasbro released Constructicon Maximus over here, when Buildron was a TRU exclusive giftset there.

    EDIT: I'm hoping Hasbro just says F**k it and goes open season on all of Takara's exclusives since TakaraTomy is taking a break from Transformers.

    Also, If you look at Soundblasters pictures, this time 'lazerbeak' has yellow inner wings, Like the G1 toon, Lazerbeak was red, Buzzsaw was yellow, which means, it might be Soundblaster + Buzzsaw minicon. Though in Japan i expect It'll just end up as 'Condor' again.

    When is Cyb Soundwave being released? If its not seeing a release until late spring or summer, then Hasbro may not release a repaint as they will be ending the line by years end.

    Then again it could be like the E. Jetfire repaint that came out in the last wave of Energon.

    Cybertron Soundwave should be out sometime in March. Which means they could probably do one in one of the last waves of the line. That's assuming that they decide to flip Takara off.

    I know something that would almost definitely count - the DVD exclusive Micron Emergency Team and the Universe Emergency Team (yellow Firebot, etc). Those things are incredibly similar and probably the closest Hasbro will get to replicating Takara exclusives.

    Of course, TDP items do seem to be a different story. I have a feeling that Dark Fang Wolf and Soundblaster will retain their exclusivity, but perhaps Hasbro will try to do something similar later on.

    Question: Why does the thread title mention Cannonball? I see no reason why he's mentioned other than the title suggesting he's another "Dark" repaint.

    I'd rather see the show-accurate Starscream Voyager size released in the US than a non-show repaint of Soundwave, or any other Voyager. If Hasbro needs filler for the rest of '06, why not a *show character* in the *show accurate colors*? That makes more sense to me, and the Supreme Starscream should be a memory at most chains (other than TRU) already.
