    On one hand I like the new mold for Soundwave (despite its diaper crotch) and it feels like a Classic treatment, with the new Laserbeak and all, but OTOH it's got stupid diaper crotch that makes the whole toy look stupid. Reissue Soundwave is G1, nuff said, but I got 3 (counting Soundblaster) already so I am not sure if I want another one. Thoughts?

    You could just skip them both. Personally I'll only be getting the reissue, but I only have an original, and not the Soundblaster mold.

    Well, being a G1 nut too I would choose the reissue but for my case, I have an extremely mint SW (bought him b4 the Takara reissue was announced), the Takara reissue and Soundblaster, I felt a 4th Soundwave is overkill for me.

    Buy the reissue, with so many people planning on getting him and skipping the Titanium version that would be the best bet. You could always buy the Titanium version later. But if you only want to buy one and skip the other then it is hard to say. Since you have Soundblaster and two Soundwave's then the reissue is basically more of the same only with a different paint job on the Soundblaster mold you have. The Titanium version, good or bad, is a new mold and different from the three you have now. I that case I would lean more to the Titanium mold to break things up a little.

    The best G1 Soundwave yet or Titanium "Oops I crapped my pants" Soundwave. If you are definitely going to get one, I don't think there is much of a contest.

    Since you've already got 3 Soundwaves/blasters, and the Titanium one looks like shit ,you should just skip them both and buy something different.

    You have THREE Soundwave toys and you're pondering buying another - one of which would be the exact same mold in a different color scheme?

    You are kidding me.:redface2:

    I'm going with both.
    Titanium for the whole, um... well, he... it's better than spending $15 for something stupid... *Realizes the joke in this*

    Reissue for the fact of 2 tapes, and never had Soundwave.

    For Predaking, it's a waste of money either way.

    Save it and spend it somewhere more worthwhile than on a figure that doesn't look good and on another you already basically own.

    I'll be buying the reissue. The titanium 6" does nothing to update the G1 version for the better, IMO.

    Get 2 of each. Could make a Soundblaster out of that extra Titanium one.
    Keep the other for future trade fodder or something
