    In the banner for their 50% off sale is a closeup of CS Soundwave. I looked all over the site and didn't see it listed. So..
    Did I miss something?
    Is it possible they will be selling it direct like Astrotrain? or
    False advertising?

    Looks like the only Soundwave they have is Titanium Soundwave (though it's out of stock).
    It would be awesome if they did sell the Commemorative Soundwave there, since it's difficult to find elsewhere.

    Actually, it's not CS Soundwave either, cause he's not the Soundblaster mold.

    I find that messed up, period. I feel like they are misleading the public. But then again, i am used to it since people are already having trouble finding the Reissue Soundwave.

    It doesn't say 50% off, it says UP TO 50% off sale with a big asterisk beside it. So soundwave could be there but for 0% off, or follow the asterisk and it might say that products pictured might not be available and that the sale doesn't apply to all products.

    The tape door is flat and not sticking out though. Same way on his box art.

    In other words, it's the Commemorative Soundwave in that it's the one that appeared on the boxes, not the final figure.

    It is a bit misleading, having CS Soundwave on the banner, but most likely it was just a matter of reusing some promotional images to create the banner, and miscommunication over which Soundwave is actually available via Hasbro.

    It would be a nice treat if it got offered via HTS later, but I doubt that.

    It would be a nice treat if it got offered for a non-gouged price ANYWHERE.
    TRU Online keeps taking CS Soundwave off the Transformers page, then putting it back up, but saying it's "Temporarily Unavailable Online," then taking it down, then putting it back up again even though it's not available :banghead:

    Yeah the 50% off was not my point. My point was depicting a product that was not available on the site and in high demand seemed in poor taste. It doesn't affect me anyways since I have 2 already and don't need a 3rd. Just found it odd.
