    Was in TRU in Evansville, IN looking at stuff today, an employee pointed out to me that they just got a new "tape deck" guy in that morning. She didn't know if it came in on a truck or if it was just found stock from the stockroom.

    Looked in the movie toy section and sure enough, there were six G1 Soundwaves on the shelf, over by the old Classics and Cybertron stuff and party supplies. I don't have a camera phone and I already have a Soundwave so I didn't buy it, but I'm sure any number of the other guys who post here from the tri-state area can confirm.

    Was pretty surprised to see it to be honest. Call or check your TRUs if you missed him the first time around, there may be another wave hitting!

    I'll be more than grateful if he starts appearing everywhere at TRU again.

    We were expecting this based on info from TRU employee board members. It's supposed to be half the size of the previous wave.

    I agree. I'd like to buy one, but don't want to pay a premium (or anything for that matter) to scalpers.

    Very cool news if he's hitting the shelves again. The first go round I never even saw one at the closest Toys-R-Us and I've got this personal rule about never giving money to scalpers. Not a bad move for Toys-R-Us either since anything about the Transformer you wanted to see in the movie but isn't in the movie almost always comes up as Soundwave so he's still popular enough for Toys-R-Us to make a bit of cash off the move.

    I hope I see him this time. And I hope I can get him. ($ is short. Taking donations.)

    the ironic part is that i only could buy that soundwave from an ebay scalper since toys r' us doesn't have any stores in my country.

    It just came out recently in Canada for the first time. My local TRU still had 9 left as of yesterday. It costs around $45cdn including tax...should be round about the same in USD with the current exchange rate.
    If anyone is really really desperate for it...pm me...i'll see what I can do. It'll cost you regular price + whatever shipping comes to I guess.
    Take some power away from the scalpers eh.

    I tried to help out my local Tucson board members last week and posted in the sightings forum when I saw him at TRU. I just figured Tucson was REALLY behind. :lol

    Ebay:
    I still want one. Niether of the two Toys'R'Us stores within driving distance ever had them. I called and visited them a lot and never saw even one, though I did see tons of movie stuff before it was supposed to be out. Hopefully I can get one this time w/out having to pay ridiculous scalper fees on Ebay.

    Got him the first time. He's great, and I'm glad more people will have a chance to own him.

    I bought my TRU on Ebay, the bastard lied and said it was a G-1 Soundwave. I was a n00b back then, and I should've been smarter than to think a complete G-1 Soundwave would only cost $50.
