    Well, that's interesting. I wonder why they didn't just release Soundwave with the single cassette holder? I suppose they figured that we already had a regular Soundwave, so why not Soundblaster in Soundwave's color scheme? A slight variation in design might entice some of us to pick the figure up again.

    It may well work. I'll probably buy him even though I have TFC 10 Soundwave already. :D

    AWESOME! I'm not a big fan of the reissues, but I always want a Soundwave. I think, if I have the funds, I will get him.

    C'mon Hasbro why can't we just get a Soundblaster? Is it too much to ask? Maybe make it a toyshop exclusive??? You did it with Astrotrain and Stepper was a Japan exclusive back in the day so why not with little ol' Soundblaster?

    Having never gotten Soundwave or Soundblaster, I'll definately get this gut if I see him

    I don't care what anyone says, I like it. It's 2 great tastes that go great together. I mean it's kinda a newer evolution for Soundwave, like his transition from Wave to Blaster.

    Not a fan of the clearness on the sides of the jutting second holding opening thing thingy but that's minor.

    Definite buy for me.

    But the overchrome on the buttons worry me.

    I've got a Takara reissue and my original but if Hasbro reissues him with Lazerbeak and Ravage I'm all over it.

    I'm more interested in Ravage. I want to know if they'll be using the original tape spools sticker, or the crappy specs readout sticker.

    I cant believe that Hasbro did something like this........... GENIUS!!!!

    I have both Takara Soundblaster and Soundwave reissues, but this will be added so I can slowly start my small Soundwave corner. :rock  Now all I need is to find a cheap Cybertron Soundwave. :D

    Oh god YES!!! It's Soundblasterwave!!! :D  :D  :D  I was so hoping after the first test shot that he'd be blue! Sucks for you guys who wanted a black Soundblaster and I do sympathize as I do already have Soundwave. But this made my night. If I can actually find these things, I'll buy two! :)

    I still think it's too bad we couldn't have gotten a regular Soundwave reissue. I've never liked the way the Soundblaster mode has the tape door sticking out so far, it just looks awkward. The original mold of Soundwave is just so nice and flush the way everything fits together. Yeah, it can hold two tapes, but my imagination can hold more than that.

    And yes, I know I'm in the extreme minority and I'm crazy for not liking it and so and so forth.

    For purely selfish reasons, I would've preferred a Soundblaster, as I picked up the Takara Soundwave Reissue back when it first came out. Still, in terms of actual sales, this was likely the best way to go.

    Neat, I finally got an original Soundwave, but I will still get this guy for the minty freshness and also for Laserbeak.

    Okay, now this made my day!

    I already have soundblaster, but the only reason I got him was because I couldn't buy soundwave ($150-$200 is way to much for me to part with.)

    Hopefully they'll sell him for a reasonable and not have limited numbers of this little guy. I'm one of the many that couldn't log in to order Alt Nemesis Prime when he came out, and paying $50 plus shipping for one over Ebay is insane, in my opinion. Let's just pray that Soundwave doesn't suffer the same fate.

    And I know this might be too early to think about, but any idea as to the release date?
