    That's pretty cool, but other than having 2 extra cassettes (with are both out/coming out as encores) its no different to classics reissue Soundwave from what I can see.

    That Ratbat is nice. Don't need the others...is there really an encore Ratbat coming that I don't know about?

    Edit: wow, had no idea there was a new encore with him. Big pass then.

    I'd be on it if TakTomy wasn't releasing it this summer with 3 other guys I need in the ENCORE line. Big pass, unless there's a variant that's G1 Blaster with Steeljaw, Ramhorn, Raindance and Grandslam or something along those lines.

    Well... it's been nice to be able to say I've had every San Diego Comic Con exclusive figure, but this time, it's a skip. C'mon Hasbro, SDCC is all about the black repaint, you couldn't give us Soundblaster just this once?

    Yup, he's part of the second Encore Cassette set slated for later this year (summer, I think?) with Steeljaw, Ramhorn and Slugfest. The preorders came up a month or two ago on BBTS, TFsource and elsewhere.

    Seems like kind of a waste considering how easy to find the first one still is. However, Soundwave is one of my favorite toys/characters, so I'll get one to keep MISB.

    EDIT:
    I agree that they should've made Soundblaster; would have keep with the black theme of recent SDCC toys, and it would've given us the first U.S. release of Soundblaster (not to mention one that we wouldn't have to pay $200 for).

    Wow... did not see that coming.
    I'm on the fence since I already own the original book style reissue of Soundwave and Soundblaster and have Hasbro's reissue.

    But the inclusion of Ratbat is a very sweet deal.
