    Beast Wars pieces are interesting.

    They are labeled TM, and they are about 8 dollars cheaper than what BBTS is offering.

    EDIT: And I don't recall seeing a listing for Alkatis in that BBTS announcement either.

    For a second, I thought that read they were releasing Soundwave in the US in July. :(

    I wonder, will the Frenzy and Rumble headphones be released with Soundwave, because some of the previous news might suggest them to be seperate, though the smart thing would be to bundle them in.

    I was actually pumped about the BW releases, especially the Neo molds that I missed out on, but BBTS' mark-up was a little steep, especially w/o pics. F2F is more reasonable, but I think these might be molds I just hope end up cheap on Ebay.

    It's interesting that BBTS has a preorder for Tigatron, but F2F doesn't say anything about that character.

    Fan2Fan's made the mistake of "misspelling" unfamiliar TF names, so it's not really your fault you didn't notice Archadis. And look at what happened to Corahda.

    Not surprising, considering F2F's location and direct source on these. Once you start importing, you can find yourself less interested in paying for these things from western retailers. :)  With the exception of the odd sale or bargain, that happened to me a long time ago.

    Interesting choice for some of those Beast Wars reissues.
    It makes me wonder why neither Hasbro nor Takara could make the paint applications that detailed the first time around.

    I normally order from BBTS, but they look to be about $20 more than Fan2Fan on that Soundwave. I imagine they are a good place to do business by the number of times they are referenced on this site.

    yeah, i used to a lot of business with Joel (BBTS), until he started really raising the prices on transformers. I still buy from him (his service is great!), just rarely transformers any more. I tend to lean towards Ebay, or hlj sometimes, and other online retailers (TRU, Amazon etc..). I'll have to try F2F sometime... I try to buy from various places. But I bought a bunch of my BW & Beast War Neo figs from BBTS waay back.

    Well at least Joel knocked down the price of even the $109 Blue Pre-orders he took down to $94. I know it's still more expensive but I was gonna be upset when his price dropped if he hadn't done that.

    If you're going to order from F2F, ask them what the shipping costs are first. That could knock the price up to comparable levels with BBTS.

    BTW, I noticed that my BBTS pre-order for the white Soundwave was only 74.99 or something close to that. Must have raised the prices since I preordered.

    Soundblaster will be released in black if these releases are even mildly successful. It's not like Takara to pass up a chance for a black repaint, nor a recolor using an existing mold that might sell well.

    My guess is we'll either get no explanation, and just get the two separate colors in the same box (like some of the BTs did), or we'll get an odd explanation like Zoom Zoom (red) and Jazz (pearl white). Though I expect fans to make up all sorts of crazy names for the white recolor. My personal front-runner at the moment is Whitenoise.
