    I can't believe how excited I am in anticipation for Masterpiece Soundwave and his minions. With the exception of something horrendous going wrong with the finished product, this looks like it will take the place of Grimlock as my favourite MP.

    So with that I pose this question; How will you display MP Soundwave and his minions?

    The figure can hold three tapes in its chest compartment but the tapes look so good on their own so they need to be displayed. I think I will go with;

    Rumble (blue) being displayed with the pile drivers just like the toon
    Frenzy (red) being displayed with a gun on the back and one in the hand
    Ravage seated at the feet of Soundwave
    Lazerbeak perched on Soundwave's shoulder with the camera out
    Buzzsaw as the only tape in the compartment
    Soundwave with his finger on the eject button ready to unleash Buzzsaw

    If the other tapes get released, such as the repaints, they will also be placed in the chest compartment unless they are a new mould.

    Ratbat really needs to come soon, and not in a Soundblaster repaint, as I think he could potentially beat Lazerbeak/Buzzsaw as the best cassette. The repainted tapes such as Enemy and Wingthing should come with the Soundblaster repaint.

    G1 Laserbeak in the chest, MP Laserbeak on the shoulder, MP Ravage at his feet, MP Rumble will probably be just chilling and taking a knee.

    My Soundwave will be displayed right beside my laptop.

    Actually your description for the display is exactly how I plan on doing mine. I didn't know he could hold 3 cassettes though, so that is super cool.

    I'll display them with my other MP Decepticons. All cassettes out, Laserbeak mounted somewhere on Soundwave. Rumble will be displayed with guns as cartoon Frenzy, and Frenzy will be displayed with piledrivers as cartoon Rumble. Ravage and Buzzsaw somewhere in front in cool poses.

    Has there been any size comparison between the MP cassettes and the G1 cassettes in both modes?

    I am torn how/where I will display mine, need to organize my existing MP figures better first.

    I'm going to display him on a $15 shelf. That's if I can't find one in someone's trash.

    I agree with the OP, this is how I'd display mine, although I am really tempted to put all 3 tapes in his chest, i'm kind of weird in that i like displaying bots with as many of their bits or weapons attached to them as possible, to the point that I have G1 scorponok with not a loose accessory on him, all displayed in robot mode.
    On the subject of the tapes though, seems like this thread is saying there are 2 versions of laserbeek, an MP and a G1 am I reading that right? also, do we know how big the cassettes are going to be compaired to the originals? and whether they wil have cases? that would be nice.

    From what I have read, the MP cassette mode is the same size as the vintage G1 cassette mode but thicker. The video from the Tokyo Toy Show showed MP Soundwave with a vintage tape in his chest.

    When the first Soundwave was shown in the display cabinet it also had cases for the tapes so I think they are in the package.

    If I ever buy Masterpiece Soundwave and his Casetticons, I'll have Soundwave himself Front and Center. Frenzy on his Left Rumble on his right. Lazerbeak on Megatron's Shoulder (If that's even Possible). Ravage curled up at Soundwave's feet, and Buzzsaw perched on his arm.

    My setup in my head was like yours, for the most part.

    On a side note, we also need Beastbox (packed with the upcoming Ratbat for another 2-pack) and an Overkill & Slugfest 2-pack.

    I really need a new shelf for my masterpizzas.
    I'll have him stand there with his gun in one hand and the other one pushing his eject button or something. I'll have the minions in their appropriate action poses around him, and Laserbeak perched on MP-05's arm. I think I'm more keen on the cassettes than Soundwave himself. But not by too much.

    I'll probably just have them all around by his feet in robot / beast modes.

    I'm hoping they're at least the size of regular cassettes ..the bigger the better.
