Hasbro Masterpiece MP-02 Soundwave Reissue
Available to : Taiwan
Bonus: Mini Die Cast made cassette player (2 x 3 x 1 cm)
Release Date : Dec 2016
All five tapes is really cool.
But the eyes are still wrong. I don't know why Hasbro insists on the wrong colors.
Still, anybody without a Soundwave needs to jump on this.
A re-issue is a re-issue. They're not going to change anything when re-issuing something. Otherwise it would be MP-02+
Also important to note: this is the Hasbro TRU version (even though it might be obvious due to all the cassettes being included), as it lists "MP-02 reissue" on the copy.
Wrong for the cartoon maybe, the toy had a yellow visor, so it's right.
oh man! now we have a re-issue, and a KO coming.. i wonder which will land first!
Let's go with the (not ridiculously) expensive pre-orders, looking at you BBTS.
As much as i love soundwave and as much as i need an MP SW I'll be skipping out on this. Soundwave needs red eyes not yellow. I hate when MP's follow the toys instead of the cartoon. MP's need to resemble the show not some old brick toy. Sucks but wont be buying.
Only way I would buy that is if some third-party made a optional cassette man tape deck to put on
The die-cast bonus accessories that come with these Asia MPs have quickly gone from kind of neat to completely unnecessary.
I was hoping this day would come. I've kinda warmed up to MP Soundwave after his release, but he's far too expensive on the secondary market. If he's available again for the right price, I might just spring on him. Gimme!
A tiny bit of red paint or a reprolabel would solve all of your problems.
Price wise, the Hasbro Asia TRU MP Prime reissue was $140 (vs $99 original retail) so this I would expect to be about $180 (vs the $120 original retail price).
We'll see if they bump it up might higher than that, but over $200 would be pushing it.
Nice! I never got a chance to pick up soundwave the first time around.I went to several toysrus and he was sold out at every store i went to. I just couldn't justify paying the $300 for him on ebay. I'll definitely be buying him this time around.
Just to clarify, asia release - is this exclusive to a certain retailer or will we see a mass release available at the regulars likes AE, NY, AA?
