    I ended up selling mine for $62 shipped. Never did like the protruding chest door, so I ended up preordering Encore Soundwave.

    I'm thinking of selling mine in favor of the Encore Soundwave (if Encorewave doesn't have the double chest). I'll probably sell it for cheaps so keep an eye out.

    ...was it confirmed that the mold for Soundwave was retooled for the Soundblaster reissue? Or was that just a rumor?

    G1 reissues ALWAYS appreciate. I've preordered the Encores for precisely this reason. I'll see what the extra features are and maybe sell the TFC versions, depending.

    If I remember correctly they were $29.99 plus tax. So you figure $32 or so. $40 is a good price IMO. $50-60 is way too much. I was able to get a few of them at TRU. I have 1 left after taking care of my bros here on the boards.

    If you mean that g1 reissues always go up in value, I'd have to say you're wrong. :) 

    I can get reissues(hasbro versions) of grapple, inferno, hoist, smokescreen, sideswipe, and Ricochet for a lot less then retail. I once got a grapple and hoist for $8 shipped off ebay. :p

    I wish I knew how rare he was going to be, I went to 2 TRU's and found 6 at each. I should of bought another 2 to sell on here at cost. I hate seeing people get ripped off on eBay.

    I don't know why some people are paying so much for him on eBay recently, considering Digital toys still sells him for $44.:confused:
