    So... Where have all the CYB Soundwaves gone? I went to 7 stores(5 of which were websites) and NONE had Soundwave. The best I got was out of a guy at TRU. He said they never got any. They had a ton of dark crumplezones and I heard there were a few Soundwaves there earlier this week.

    I dont want to resort to Ebay for Soundwave because I dont have $50 to pay for one.

    Has anyone seen then readily available?

    Does anyone know of a website in the US that has Soundwave for less than $30 shipped?

    Am I just out of luck?

    Apparently he was on Walmart's site a little while back. I shouldn't worry, he's only just started shipping in the last month or so. You probably should start worrying if another month goes by and you don't see him.

    Here's a suggestion, perhaps if you're worried you could post a request in the Junkion Exchange and see if someone who is in an area where they are more common could get one for you at near to retail prices? You'd have to pay a little for shipping, but you wouldn't need to pay Ebay prices. Otherwise, there's always your region's sightings thread. Keep an eye on that and see if anyone local to you has seen any. Might be easier to get ahold of him if you know where, locally, others have found the guy.

    Haven't seen him for awhile, but he was in two stores yesterday. Seems to me that stores haven't done much restocking the past few months, and this is starting to change. Pretty typical for the spring.

    If I see him the next 2 days will pick him up for ya (25 shipped)

    If you already found one then no biggie, Im sure he'd be easy to get rid of.

    We still have alot of Mudflaps here and 2 of our Walmarts just recieved a bunch of wave 1's (wtf )

    Maybe hasbro decided to recall him and instead shipped out the super awesome soundblaster color scheme!

    I see him half the time I'm out. I have only seen Nemesis Breaker once and passed. I don't have Galvatron so I don't need him. But yea, Soundwave shouldn't be to hard to find.

    I've never seen the guy. Bought mine off Walmart.com the day it was posted here, never actually seen him on a shelf.

    Ebay him if you have to, he's worth it.

    Ebay:
    I've seen Soundwave and Nemesis Breaker multiple times. They don't last long though so if you're not hunting frequently or at the right times, you'll probably miss them.

    Personally, I've found that going out one day and hitting many stores doesn't work, especially if its a weekend. I have a few stores that I stop at in the morning and usually have no problems finding stuff at them due to the time of day and frequency. If you can't stop daily, figure out when they stock and stop on those days. This is pretty easy, at least at the Walmarts and TRU's in my area.

    I've yet to see him, but I think I'll pass when I do. I'd rather put that money towards Twincast.

    Tapes > Bombs

    Did Nevermore ever tell us how many tapes Twincast will hold? :D

    I have NOT seen soundwave in any of my local stores or the two stores by where I work. I bought the 1st once on Walmart.com and I had to drive to the farther away stores that are still near but not really close to find one in a store to open. Same with Alt Prime. I have only seen him once and had to drive 25 min north to a busier area to find him. Still have not seen him in my local stores to get a 2nd one.
