    I was really liking Megs, but I think Soundwave might be my favorite WFC figure so far. His butt kibble is a little off, but the rest is nice.

    There's also the possibility that he's a bit mistransformed. Still, even if it isn't, it looks cool.

    Hate the altmode, but Soundwave definitely feels like Soundwave, so that's good. Still wish he had minions, but what can you do.

    Is it just me or do Megs feet looks misassembled/backwards? Like belong on the other leg, hmm. Regardless, these mofos are bought on sight! Soundwaves head sculpt is freaking sweet!

    I can't wait to get my hands on these, Soundwave looks amazing & I love Megatron's Fusion Cannon.

    Looking at Soundwave a second time, I think his alt mode suffers a little like Prime's does. Both the front of Prime and the top of Soundwave both need somthing to break up the large areas of one color.

    And another figure gets added to my must-have list.

    Even though it's been boring as heck, it's a good thing there's been such an epic lull recently. Funds needed the charging up!

    Megatron looks sweet. Soundwave's classic gun seems to be back. Sweet.

    Man, both of those are as good as bought.

    Megatron looks a little whiter than I expected (maybe it's just the lighting), but still looks badass. And Soundwave just hits it right out of the park.

    I thought the picture of Soundwave in the Club magazine looked interesting, but the actual toy looks terrible and Megatron is similarly unimpressive. I'm glad BBTS put up separate pre-orders for Darkmount and Red Alert so I wasn't stuck with Soundwave and Megatron as well.

    I'm not sure why but, in general, the WfC figures just aren't doing anything for me and I don't think I'll be getting any of them.

    I think Soundwave looks awesome! All his classic features are there and it is very impressive. His butt kibble looks like it can be adjusted so im not worried.

    Megatron is equally very awesome, and the lighting doesn't do him justice.

    Sweet Jesus, Soundwave looks fucking awesome. Alt. mode is meh, but I doubt he'll be seeing that mode much. That robot mode is too much win. He shall go on my "Awesome Shelf" and serve as my Classics Soundwave (until we get another one that does turn into a music player of some sort)

    Megatron looks awesome, too, much better than the original pictures. Something seems off with the feet, like they're installed backwards, but the final product won't have that problem hopefully. He's an insta-buy as well.

    Son of a *****, I'm going to have to go completionist with WfC. The figures are just so damned awesome!

    Both Soundwave and Megatron look awesome. It's really nice to see Soundwave closer to being properly transformed (the back kibble looks like it has another step or two to it). It's not his traditional alt-mode, but I really like it. Sort of makes me think of Bulkhead's alt-mode. The one thing that bothers me is his feet, and that's only at certain angles, so it's not a huge issue. Megatron's transformation still confuses me.

    Not sure if I'll get Megs, but I'm definitely going to get Soundwave, and most likely any repaints we get of him. Might get Megs for kitbash fodder. My Classics Megs still needs a new head, and this looks like it could work. The rest of him could work well as a starting point for a Galvatron kitbash.

    WOOOOOOOW That is an amazing Soundwave. I am a fan of the alt mode and robot mode alike.Megatron looks alot better too. Bought for sure. I already am getting my WFC Optimus and Bumblebee sometime between 6/8 and 6/10.

    Naturally the day I get my club mag is the day pix of Red Alert and Soundwave leak on the 'net :lol 

    Soundwave does indee look good. I really don't like the alt mode at all and with the announcement of Generations I'd hoped they'd finally release a good G1-inspired SW but oh well. Most of the elements are there so I guess it'll have to do.

    Megatron is ok at best. Too much like Animated Megatron for me.
