    This is awesome. Thought Starscream would be the next Decepticon. I hope they keep going with these and keep the size. The size is what makes it so cool. All those doubters and complainers about MMC Laserbeak saying they were too big. Well they seem just right for me

    If they're doing Soundwave, they gotta do Starscream. And Thundercracker, Skywarp... Man, I'm gonna run out of room. :)

    MAS-01 was $170 USD, MAS-02 is listed as $200 USD on pre-order.

    I second that. But I want more Autobots. Once those start to fall into place, my basement is going to look like a S1/S2 shootout.

    You can probably use RMX series cassettes with this since laserbeak and buzzsaw are too big for mp-13..just a thought

    $200 for an action master in hammer pants where even the tape does nothing? Lol, no.

    Does this mean another Autobot is coming as well? I figure since the Optimus Prime has a Megatron, Soundwave is going to have a counterpart (most likely Bumblebee).

    Looks amazing.

    At least if they start doing some of the smaller Autobots like Bumblebee, they'll be a bit cheaper. Of course they'll probably trot out Grimlock next to really rake us over the coals, haha.

    I'm expecting this to be at least $210 depending on how much the tape does. Which, if these are once a year or at least just once every 3 quarters, I can justify. These are the scale TF's I've always wanted, I can't pass em up.

    INSTANT buy. The only Soundwave collectible that comes close to this in size is the Imaginarium Art statue but that is 4X the price, too big and too heavy. This is the sweet spot. Does anyone have any idea when preorders will be opening?

    Not saying you can't. But why have a transformer that doesn't transform is my question.

    I like having the characters represented in a large scale that pairs well with the rest of my collection. I don't need it to turn into an out of scale cassette player or gun. I've started selling off the couple MPs I had now that these are out.

    I'd be surprised if this comes out any earlier than Fall 2018. I'd say we're likely a year away from release based on how Megatron has gone. Unless they're I pressed with how the previous figures have sold and are going to 2 a year.

    Fair point.

    I like the aesthetic, the poseability, and the sculpting that has gone into the MAS series so far. MAS-01 in hand is amazing, and the presence is imposing. MAS-02 hopefully will be the same. Whatever they call Soundwave will hopefully have the presence as well. I'm lucky to have <some> space to display, so I plan to use it before it get purposed away, if you know what I mean.

    You mean a puny little children's toy that is about 1/5th the size and has the articulation of a barbie doll? No I'll be sticking with Toys Alliance thanks.
