    Ok, I tried the search function and came up with nothing, so unless I did it wrong this hasn't been brought up before.

    Is the Soundwave figure seriously shortpacked or just extremely popular?

    I searched 3 stores, and out of the numerous pegs of figures I didn't see a single Soundwave. I did see the Bumblebee figure that was supposed to be the preview figure with him but there was no sign of Soundwave.

    I'm guessing just extremely popular and if I just wait a bit I will find one, but it's just a curiosity.

    Depends on where you go. On friday, i seen stores with nothing but him and BB. Then there where stores that had all of wave 1 except for him. I heard from other posts that he will be re-released with wave 3. So if you miss him now, you can get him then.

    so far i've seen soundwave at the walmarts in dublin and christiansburg VA.
    3 in christiansburg and 6 in dublin. i guess it just depends on what area you live in. and i can't wait for the blue repaint of him.

    If you were in the Inland Empire in California, he's everywhere. I've seen too many Soundwaves and not nearly enough Skids'.

    i got the only one at the local wal-mart....it is a very awesome design....sure i would love it to be a bit taller and it is a bitch to transform, but still neat, only don't like the satillite mode, the jet is neat though

    There were lots here when the preview wave was released. I have not seen him since the real toys have been released.

    On a side note... he's really not that good of a figure in my opinion.

    I've been on the hunt for him since midnight Thursday night with no luck until tonight, I went to K-Mart & the only ROTF figures they had were BB & SW (I don't think every sore bothered with with the preview wave or misunderstood how it was supposed to work). From what I understand they were the figures from the preview wave. BB must also be in wave 1 cuz i seen him in every store I went to, SW is also supposed to be in wave 3 so if you don't/didn't find him right away don't worry he'll show up.
