You know, I was having the same debate. Let's hear it!

Originally, I thought that for me, the pure US G1 enthusiast there was only Soundwave. But then, I already have WFC Soundwave, so if I'm double dipping in the first place wouldn't the "upgraded" form explain the size difference? But as much as that makes sense, I do like the blue, and I prefer Laserbeak to Buzzsaw.

Equal odds I'll just pass on both for Blaster, depending on how he'll scale with my inevitable breakdown and purchase of MP13.
My Feedback - Minus a few I forgot to solicit.

One is black, one is blue! Pick your favorite color! Unless you care about the fiction. Which I do not.

Soundblaster is cooler if you do.

If you really can't decide you might as well get Soundblaster if you can find him since he's shortpacked. Then if you really like the mold you can pick up Soundwave down the line at some point, perhaps on clearance somewhere, or cheap on the board or something.

I'm in the same boat, almost exactly. The mold looks great, but it's essentially just a bigger version of a Soundwave that I already own, with a gimmick. Yet, I tend to normally only buy the characters that are on-screen. And they both look equally as cool...

You make it sound so easy. As far as the fiction goes, I didn't quite even understand who Soundblaster was until recently. I'm just really awful at making mundane decisions lol.

That might be an idea. Curse them for releasing both in the same wave!

Yeah, that was an odd decision. I can't see many casual fans noticing, much less buying both versions. You'd think they do Blaster and Soundwave, then Soundblaster and Grimlock. Fictionally, you could even reason that Soundwave got wrecked in his first wave matchup with Blaster and the upgraded version seeks revenge!

Whatever, none of this matters unless/until I find one in stores.

i just hate that his size just doesn't fit in with any of the other wfc/foc figures.

also, it doesn't seem like that big an improvement over the deluxe.

whereas the first edition prime deluxe, and the first edition voyager prime are very similar, but the voyager was vastly improved over the deluxe.

it's still a neat toy, just a little unnecessary

oh, at TRU in willow grove, i came across "big red" from neca's predator series.. i haven't opened it yet, but man he looks so bad ass. hopefully nothing breaks once i open it (i have a terrible reputation with neca products)

Ha. I just like the black scheme better and have always had a soft spot for Buzzsaw.

That Blaster retool looks sweeet. Fingers crossed they do Twincast!

Will anyone checking TRU this morning/today kindly check the LEGO department, and post if CMF Series 9 is starting to pop up yet (silver bags)? I know trucks usually come in today, but I won't be able to check until much later tonight.
