    Hi, i just purchased a second hand TRU commemorative Soundwave, and have the following question:

    Is the blaster actually suppossed to fire out the missiles like normal spring-loaded missile launchers that come with Transformers? For when i press the small peg-like button it doesn't shoot out, rather it just allows me to remove the missile out of it.

    Surely this means that its broke? Or is this a feature of Soundwave?

    That's pretty much the case with a good chunk of the Hasbro G1 reissues. The missiles are not up to legal length, so the launchers are merely holders instead.

    There's no spring, in according with toy safety regs (relating more to the missiles themselves, which are non-compliant, rather than the idea of a spring-loaded launcher itself). This is the norm for Hasbro G1 reissues.

    It was normal for the G1 release too.

    I'm pretty sure it fired on my original soundwaves.

    Does anyone own the Toys R Us commemorative edition to confirm it is definately due to safety regulations?

    Yes, just as the others have stated in the previous posts.
