    Hello. We know that Blaster has several repaints of him. The Diaclone repaint, and the E-Hobby repaint known as Twincast.
    What I want to know, is does G1 Soundwave have a repaint of him? We see that his cassette minions Ravage and Laserbeak have blue-repaints of them, so does Soundwave have a brother somewhere?

    I think I've seen five differently colored G1 Blasters.

    Soundblaster, a black repaint (with slight remold) of Soundwave. He holds two cassettes instead of one. The equivalent of Twincast.

    I actually saw that black Soundwave today at a con. I believe he is a Japanese variant(?). At least that's what the sales guy schooled me on.

    The original G1 vintage was a Japanese issue (the one in the link you posted). However this was later released under the TFC (Transformers Collection Book Reissue) series some year back.

    Awesome, thanks guys!

    And yes, I'm aware of the MP3 player versions, but that's not what I'm looking for.
    I'm looking for repaints of G1 molds. Or original Diaclone colors..............

    I'll have to see if I can find that Soundwave soon.

    Yeah I wasn't sure because I don't follow Japanese issues. He just told me it was Soundblaster with the double tape deck then told me the storyline behind how Soundwave was brought back to life using Blaster's pieces thanks to his loyal tape cassettes. Kinda a neat story though.

    Yes that's what happened in the Headmaster Anime. Those were crazy times :) 
    Both Soundwave and Blaster shared the same fate and were transformed into Soundblaster & Twincast respectively:
