    I would like some input from my fellow board members.

    I recently received my purchase of HA Soundwave and am on the fence of whether or not I should open it.
    Due to its non-availablity here in North America I was thinking about not opening it.

    Please let me know waht you would do?

    Open it.

    It's not like it's a one of a kind figure -- its just something that was never released in the US. Chances are, it's worth will start to go down as everyone forgets about and moves away from the movie.

    It's actually already gone down in price since it was first announced it was never coming to the US, from what I can tell. It's an extremely common figure looking at eBay and, unless you plan on one day selling it, open it and enjoy it.

    Soundwave compels you to open him up. "No prisoners (in the box), only trophies!" XD

    then why did u buy it? did you buy it to open or keep misb? i dont really see it going for crazy prices down the road but you never know. i think the hype and scare has calmed a little and prices have settled a little more.

    The question is: Are you collecting transformers toys, or are you collecting boxes?

    Honestly, HA Soundwave is the one of the cancelled figures that is actually not hugely over-priced right now. He is still available on eBay for close to standard HA prices, so I don't think that he has 'Barricade value', if that's what you are going for.
