    i have seen packages on ebay saying attendee exclusive or something like that....FP said the bandana would be included with the figure in the figure reveal earlier this year if i recall correctly..

    so what the hell is going on?

    Nope, they said they'd sell the headband as a separate accessory at the convention. The least they could've done is make it yellow though :(

    Was it a molded piece, or just a slip of ribbon?

    Ah, just saw some on Ebay. They look like they'd look odd on the head.

    They actually sold out on the first day? Nice way to limit it so everyone can get one Funpub.

    Looked like a molded piece based on pics.


    Yep, some probably to sell on eBay at jacked up prices to even crazier people who must have it at any cost.

    Not necessarily to "side" with FP, but for the sake of sharing truth, they did actually say that it would be a seperate piece after Soundwave was revealed. In fact, they said it would be released at a later date, so I was surprised to even see it on the exclusives order list, honestly.

    If you guys do buy it, do it for the card it comes with, if anything. The one that I tried to put on doesn't even fit on the figure.

    What's on the card? I was expecting it to be SG Ravage's tech spec, but it looks like to be just a card of SG Soundwave.

    Honestly, I started laughing as soon as I pressed submit because I knew that response was coming.

    End of the day, it's a 5 buck trinket to compliment a $340 set.... it honestly not that big of a deal. We were talking about it here at the con and pretty much all said it's just something we'd throw in with any Soundwave we sold at no additional cost.

    This thread is so useless without pictures that I'm not even going to use the picture of the Smiley holding a sign saying "This thread is useless without pictures."

    I'm sorry, but I still laugh when this topic comes up. This is something that could have easily been just tossed in everyone's sets.

    This. Can someone please post a pic of the thing on the toy.

    I'm still wondering what the function is. 35$ for that? That beats CrazyDevy by a mile.

    so amazing what people will pay for these days.

    I could make a headband using a wire tie from a cheap bread bag look more enticing than that plastic/rubber piece of flu snot

    I'll save how it fits for tomorrow morning. I fear that the laughter from reading responses will wake up the roommie.
