    We haven't heard much about the Hasbro Asia 2012 exclusives since they were revealed months back. Then it dawned on me, Skystalker is being repainted as Lazerbeak. However, Skystalker could combine with Mindwipe..and Mindwipe had a F-117 Nighthawk derived alt mode...as did..CYBERTRON SOUNDWAVE!

    So do you think Hasbro Asia plans to make an exclusive Soundwave repaint of ROTF Mindwipe?

    Fine idea. It's likely.

    Wasn't presenting it as a proposal for them, I'm basically wondering if repainting ROTF Mindwipe as Soundwave was already their plan...

    ROTF Ejector exists.

    Your argument is invalid.

    I'm positive they had Soundwave and one or more of his minions in mind when designing Mindwipe and Skystalker; there are just so many design similarities for it to be coincidence.

    With Skystalker being used for Laserbeak (personally I think Ratbat is a better fit, but whatevs), chances are they're at least considering redecoing Mindwipe into Soundwave.

    I'd buy it. Though it would look awfully similar to the Takara G2 Dreadwind.

    Hmmm...I can see it as a possibility.

    That said, I'm not sure if I'm eager to see it. The Mindwipe and Skystalker molds are very much Movieverse toys to me, not really crossover molds, and we already have a Movieverse Soundwave and Laserbeak (two different Soundwave bodies, in fact). Not that they can't reformat either, but...eh, it doesn't excite me a great deal.

    I am a sucker for Soundwave toys though, so if the deco looks nice, I could change my mind.

    He's awfully Soundwavey, but the idea doesn't really interest me.

    That's what I thought as well, maybe Soundwave can be much darker shade of blue, but blue nonetheless. I'd buy anyway

    But I'd much prefer this! Yes please!

    Could definitely be cool to have, though yeah, it'd be very similar to Dreadwing, even with a new head.

    So I'd rather have them skip Soundwave and go for the other guy that Laserbeak is associated with, based on this version:

    I think ROTF Mindwipe crosses over very well to Classics(just like Skyhammer)so yeah why not?

    While I like the idea (and love Mindwipe) I can't help that it's more beating around the bush as instead of giving us a definitive "Classics" Soundwave.

    WAYYYYY old. Its the DOTM Deluxe Soundwave. It was in the last wave of DOTM deluxes and cancelled along with Que/Wheeljack. Actually not expensive to get and easy to get unlike Wheeljack who has barely shown himself on any online stores but Ebay.
