    I like the art for Electrostatic Soundwave. It's almost like the artist went all out for these last few figures.

    I'll get the Soundwave just for Ratbat. Freeway Jazz I'll pass on, though.

    Yeah but they'll probably be a store-exclusive... :(  Remember how much TRU wanted for G1 Movie Jazz? I hope the same thing doesn't happen again... (I live in Syd too)

    Ratbat looks awful, like someone forgot to put a body on him. He's just a big head with big wings.

    I dig both of em. Really want Jazz tho. I like the color scheme. Prolly get Soundwave for Ratbat. Don't neccessarily need another Soundwave but whattaya do?

    Maybe a third party company could get us a pack of the other "cassette bots" so we could get a Ravage guitar. Or maybe a Frenzy, Rumble, or Overkill?

    Freeway Jazz's box-art is mouthwatering!
    I still need to pick up a Jazz so this is the one, and if Ratbat's key's are painted..... well we'll see!

    Soundwave looks nice. I was planning to pick it up for Ratbat, but at least the accompanying toy looks really solid, too.

    Freeway Jazz is an incredibly bland repaint and I have no idea why Hasbro is wasting our time with this when Arcee, Cybertron Ratchet and Rodimus Prime are sitting around waiting for release.

    Hmm, was hoping we'd get to see their bios by now.

    What's with the hole in Ratbat's forehead? Not really a fan of the Ratbat figure. It's the head on the end of the keytar that bothers me. I know that Hasbro couldn't really do anything about it, but man, I wish the face could be flattened and "closed" up in its keytar mode.

    I still remember how my "WHAT?!" echoed in TRU when I scanned that Jazz with the price-checker :(

    I only really want E-Soundwave, but I'll probably end up pre-ordering both of these from BBTS, since I'm sure the last Animated figures are going to end up as scalper bait.

    What happens at hasbro...

    :inquisiti  "Hmmmm..." say the designers "I've got it! Why don't we bring back the animated line with even more pointless repaints!"
    "Yeah great idea... we could make a power ranger destro prime, another slightly changed bumblebee, a slightly darker jazz and a soundwave that appeared for 30 seconds! We can use that old ratbat mold on him, the one that we ditched before 'coz it was crap!"
    A mummur of agreement passes through the room.

    That Soundwave is going to be my stand in for Logos Prime, and Ratbat is going to hang out with regular TFA Soundwave.

    Freeway Jazz looks nice, but I don't really have any need for him.
