MP-13 Soundwave

Is it just me, or does look to be one of the baddest most awesome TF toys ever made??



My question to the community is, where is THE BEST PLACE to get ahold of one of these things, what is a FAIR PRICE for me to pay? Do we have any sponsors or connections with TFW to get ahold of one?

I am new to collecting, but wanna dive in here. It seems this is going to be one to have for sure, and I want to make sure I take the steps to get ahold of one at the best price before they are all gone and triple in value.

Your tips and suggestions are really appreciated!!!

Sponsors are all in the flashing image just above your post.

This won't triple in value any time soon, and pretty much eveywhere will work out about the same price.

Robotkingdom has the cheapest price, I believe, but BBTS [due to an error of theirs] still have a competitive prices for buyers in the US.

Soundwave does look awesome, but I dislike the Jetfire\Astrotrain upper legs he appears to have...
SOC, Yamato, Hot Toys, FE and more for sale!

His secondary value depends largely on the Takara version's availability, a US/European Hasbro release and the availability of that toy. Also factor in the promised release of cassette sets for minor price hikes.

In the short-term at least i'd hazard a guess that there will be plenty to go round, since he's such a massively popular character. Were i a gambling man, i'd put money on MP 13 outselling the new MP prime.

edit. in the UK, RK are (roughly) 23 cheaper than Kapow if you choose the insured non-EMS option from RK and factor in free domestic postage from the UK retailer, but that saving quickly gets eaten up if you're hit for customs which would likely come to just shy of 40 after 'admin fees' and whatnot.

I'm sure they will pimp out this mold as much as they did with the original MP Prime.

You should have no problem finding this anywhere, whenever you want one.

I go with BBTS - if something is wrong with it, they take care of you in a jiff.

No one has yet mentioned a USD amount of what is the fair, expected price to pay for one.

The "expected price" is in or around what retailers are charging, and most are going to charge pretty much the same price.

You buy in the US, you pay more for the toy and less for shipping.
You buy in Asia, it's the other way round. Either way, the difference in costs is fairly narrow.

So $169 is what is what I am expected to pay then.

Seems fair enough. If I were to wait until 2014 to pull the trigger, it might be $250+...

I wonder how likely a Hasbro/US release of the same thing for $69.99-$99.99 at TRU would be?
