    I know half a dozen people who have gotten Soundwaves and they have had zero QC issues. One guy getting one that's missing a piledriver cap does not equate to a widespread QC issue.

    The guy at the customer service desk said Soundwave was $119. He doesn't know when the price will go up. It sounds like Blossom Hill gets trucks on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

    No idea. It's a tight joint, but I haven't had issues with it yet. You're the first I've heard.

    The leg ratchet "issue" is just that the thigh joint is VERY tight on ALL MP Soundwaves, even the Takara release. Ppl are nervous about breaking it because of how tight it is, but to date, I haven't seen anyone actually break it.

    Paranoid nonsense. The legs are tight. They have to be to keep the figure standing considering how many ways they have to move for the transformation. My Takara Soundwave is the same way and it's clearly intentional and not a risk of breakage.

    Agreed my Takara SW has tight ratchets, but they have a good purpose

    I watched a review on youtube to make sure I wasn't going to snap the legs off! Turns out they were just stiff.

    In other news. . .

    Target in Ontario had most of the Predacons Rising toys last night.

    I went to TRU to grab a couple Ninja Turtles with a friend. I didn't even see SW, but he did... and I came out with something I probably shouldn't have aha

    Almaden Walmart had one lone Topspin mixed in with wave one of FoC Generations deluxes. And just about everywhere I go, I see the BH deluxe Starscream warming the pegs.

    Has anyone in San Jose seen a voyager Skyquake anywhere recently? Never came across him in Reno or Carson.
