    LAME!! That's like saying that because there is a Classics line they don't need to make the movie toys!

    Actually, I'd say that because there's a classics line they don't need to make the movie toys... it'd be better for all of us that way...

    Anyways, yeah, no Classics Soundwave sucks and the reasoning kind of sucks, but I'm figuring they'll replace him with something better... at least I hope so...

    That means that we'll see a Classics Soundwave!

    He can be displayed proudly next to Alternators Sunstreaker, the Armada beasts, Reissue Soundwave, the WW Titanium figures, and Classics gun Megatron! :)

    That is really, really, really lame. :cry 

    If they're not going to do a Classics Soundwave, the least they could've done was dig out the Rumble/Frenzy mold and pack that in with the reissue to give people who already have the Takara Soundwave and/or Soundblaster reissues some incentive to buy this one.

    I would have loved to see an updated Soundwave for the Classics. Kind of unfair to Megatron giving him a Starcream but no Soundwave.

    So if we aren't getting Soundwave, who's the fourth Voyager figure? The unconventional combiner they hinted at yesterday?

    Maybe the fourth figure will be Galvatron (since he's one of the "want to do's" at the top of their list)? Or perhaps Shockwave?

    Sure, it sucks that we won't get a Classics Soundwave, but, seriously... as cool as Soundwave is and as much as I'd welcome a nice reimagining of him... I'm not a big fan of "role play" alt modes, because they have no alt mode interaction with most of the rest of the line... so maybe they'll replace him with something better.

    Unlike Megs + possibly Shockwave, who you can screw around with, rolling round corners, and pointing it at stuff making laser noises.

    Shockwave is the ideal choice. He's a big purlple sci-fi blaser, so no need to worry about gun laws, and he's also a character that looks cybertronian, so the updte could be extremely g1 accurate. And, he needs a proper homage (no, I don;t count energon shockblast as a proper homage).

    Excellent point! We need Classic Shockwave! Are you reading this, Hasbro? Or at least a Titanium version!

    Well, that sucks. Here's hoping for Shockwave instead.

    i really figured that between reissue and Titanum Soundwave tis was a likliehood. i wonder if the Prime-Megs 2 pack has taken the place of the "4th voyager" on their release schedule?

    remember howin the original rumour there was gnna be a deluxe and Voyager Prime?

    still, with Jetfire lookin' like a Novemberish release, seems like that'd be a long 5 months to not put anything out @ that size class...
