Did anyone else have the podcast cut-out on them around the thirty minute mark? Also some searching on the tfwiki shows that Milton Bradley did not have the rights to release Optimus Prime and several others because another company held the rights to the respective Diaclone molds. Which is why Jetfire was marketed as the leader. The comic is interesting because it basically tells Shockwave's first encounter with the Dinobots in the Marvel comics, it just swapped him out with Soundwave.

My feedback:

Apparently I'm just a fellow.

Also, I had no idea people hated BH Soundwave that much. He seems fine to me.

The Energon Harvestor was the McGuffin you were thinking of.

as far as funpub not being able to use molds because they aren't recent enough? Ultra mammoth says hi. Big Convoy came out back in 99

I wonder if he is the Japanese mould the Korean Mould or is he the Nemesis Prime Mould - or does Nemesis Prime have all the marks to show he's actually the same mould Big Convoy was made in all along. I was just thinking that if they did make a whole new mould for the Hasbro release then that would be a lot newer as it would date from Universe 1.0 and not Beast wars New as it came out in Japan or Korea. that sad though could all still be the same moulds or moulds used for the Japanese release. as I don't think he was ever some thing made in Bumblebee numbers regardless of his version or colour.

I have no real issues with Beast Hunters Soundwave aside from perhaps the brown being a bit naff and his inability to straighten his arms. Yes I wish they were not like that but neither is a deal breaker - he's always going to be worth having as he's Soundwave and as he's got Ravage with him even with those minor points against him.

I suspect if that form of the character does make an appearance in the show and he isn't another "Transmetal Rhinox" then interest in him will be a more positive interest. and if he's never in the show - then simply don't buy him if you don't feel the need to own Ravage.

Also, I got Twinstrike today and he does have four pegs on his legs, so that's probably how he connects to Hun-Gurrr.
