    I'm on a tight collecting budget and I doubt I can afford to buy two expensive figures of the same mold. I have the G1 Soundwave and the TRU reissue and I also have the Cybertron version. As of right now I don't own a single version of Blaster. Opinions?

    Well, I guess you should get Blaster then.

    Only if you like the character though, because I never liked Blaster and I would get everything with the "Soundwave" name on it.

    Sounds like you prefer Soundwave. I would get the Soundwave :)  But these won't be too expensive I believe, $20 right?

    Still got the deluxe Soundwave myself so if your getting the voyager for that mold then I suggest Blaster. I don't need Soundwave in both scales and I think I prefer Blaster in that size anyway.

    I'm getting both, maybe even Soundblaster too. But it sounds like you need to get yourself a Blaster. The mold doesn't look half bad for him, although his chest looks kinda awkward in vehicle mode.

    Blaster as he hasn't had a FOC release yet and SW has. the chest also looks like it'd work for a secret third boombox mode

    Hmm reads like you don't have the WFC Soundwave... In that case SW, though, to be fare a cybertronian Blaster will proabably be harder to find a few years from now...

    You... may way to consider another figure entirely if you're own that tight a budget. Not for nothin' ...but the FoC Soundwave/Blaster mold's main gimmick is predicated upon the notion of buying more figures.

    I'm gonna grab both as my only repesentation of them in my collection are Cybertron Soundwave and his redeco of Universe Blaster. So they'll replace the current duo. Anyone know if Buzzsaw be availible by himself?

    If WFC Soundwave is an indicator... the figure(s) should sport the unofficial Boom Box mode. AFAIK FoC Voyager 'Wave looks mostly upscaled and better detailed... so boom box alt should be quite feasible.

    I say Soundwave. I'm guessing Blaster will be easier to find and when those TF sales rolls in later, thats when you should grab Blaster.

    I'm getting Blaster. Cooler weapon (wtf is up with that G1 Prime gun on Soundwave?) and just has more overall appeal because there's already a WFC Soundwave toy.

    i would get blaster as we dont really have a definitive ver of him in classics style yet..i however will be getting all three..maybe even two SWs to replace the WFC ver thats currently takes the spot of classic SW in my classics section in my collection...looks like we might have a healthy bulk of WFC/FOC to display in our collections..:popcorn

    I vastly prefer Soundwave as a character, but I think I actually like Blaster's deco better (on the FoC Voyager), though if I can afford it I'll probably get all three. On the other hand, I'd love to add another Soundwave to my collection...

    I'm torn as well. I like all three decos.

    I think I'm going to go with Soundblaster, myself. I've got a WfC Soundwave, so I should probably go for SOME variety... but I don't have a Blaster other than the mediocre repaint of the terrible Cybertron mold so... yeah.

    Decisions decisions.
