Is this a US or Asia release? I'm assuming Asia because of Soundblaster...
I assume that they're Voyagers/Powerizers and also take batteries if anyone knows?
The rifle that he's holding looks like it's based upon G1 Optimus Prime. That's sorta weird.
That's been the gun he's consistently shown with... I seriously hope they are using it as a placeholder for the "battery gun" Soundwave usually comes with.
Does this mean sw will be hitting the states in January?
I'd rather have a twin pack with blaster, than sound blaster.
nice but im sticking to the deluxe scale for this line + Titanium Seekers (come on wheres my ramjet and dirge )
I don't think it's an actual two pack.
...and if it IS, it's probably a Hasbro ASIA Two pack.
(...and now for complaints from someone because the US might NOT get this speculated two pack)
It's probably that there's 2 of each to a case (which is weird to have a repaint in the same wave especially at the beginning) and they're splitting the cases up.
Why release sw with sb and not blaster at least its a retool.
Because they've decided it's in their interest to ship the non-retool first, presumably?
I checked the sdcc photos these 2 are out in January and the bots are out in March...makes no sense.
I think I'm going with Soundblaster.
I just don't like the translucent purple they've been giving Soundwave. Didn't like it in Cybertron, tolerated it on WfC, but given the option I'm definitely going the clear red.
Oh hey they got Grimlock too
So, I've never bought from RK before and I'm a bit confused.
Is there any reason why they are charging $30 a piece for Voyagers? It's the same for Grimlock.
Am I just really behind? Have the toys gone up in price that much since I last bought them?
1) Toys cost more overseas
2) If 30 for a Voyager is a surprise to you, you probably don't buy online that often.
Yup. The last time I got a voyager was probably three years ago.
So what are these going to be going for in-store in the USA upon release?
It's guesswork, but you may or may not know the DX price point has just had a price point hike.
The Voyager price point is in a mess as the moment because of poorly thought out case ratios....but i wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro bump the price to $25+ once these are out.
IF you can find them.
The unfortunate reality is that these days it's often easier to just buy TFs on the Internet and be done with it. Even if it means paying a bit more.
I see. Thank you!
... I really hope Soundblaster comes out. Just occurred to me that I could very easily envision the figure getting cancelled.
I'm starting to think that that is definitely the gun. Wonder if Hasbro figures they are doing us a favor by giving us a 5 mm gun for our various Optimus Primes that didn't come with the "proper" gun (all except MPs).
Of course I already have TWO unofficial ones...
Anyway, I doubt I will be able to resist Soundblaster/Buzzsaw, so I can buy the bad guy "tapes." I will skip Soundwave since I have the deluxe (and if Soundblaster is a future upgrade of Soundwave, it kinda makes sense for him to be bigger). The yellow eyes are also game-accurate to Soundwave, oddly enough. Anyway, it really is just a sweet bruiser of a figure.
I'm REALLY excited for Blaster though.
Also, this figure isn't electronic, but Grimlock is. Oh geez, just reminded myself how much I need that Grimlock...
