    Stopped by TRU today. They had 6 Soundwave reissues on the shelves. The toys were in the box facing the other direction. So when you open the flap, you see the back of Soundwave & his minions.

    Since the toys are mint and factory sealed, would this contstitute a rare error version of the toy?

    I've seen a couple of these listed on eBay. So this may be a common error for the second production run. I like error packing (even the common ones), so I'll be trying to track one down. Of course since I said it might be a common mistake I won't be able to find it at either of the TRU's in my area.

    When I got my TRU Soundwave last week, all 7 of the 'Waves on the shelf were packaged backwards as well.

    So does this mean now that I will finally be able to buy one off the shelf instead of paying double (If I'm lucky) to get one off Ebay or Amazon?

    First wave were all facing the right direction, the second wave are all backwards, somebody must've fell asleep at the factory, and it was just not cost effect to reverse them all back, so they sent it out as is :D

    That's cuz Canada got the tail end of the first wave. The second wave just came out in the US.
