    I assume you've bought like three already and are barely holding out for when the other rampmasters are released.

    The abuse of soundbarrier continues.

    Soundbarriers fetch a high price on the black market.

    I, for one, welcome our new Rampmaster overlords. ;) 

    [​IMG]

    I like Soundbarrier. Picked up three this past week myself.

    [​IMG]

    He's not just a bridge or ramp, and a shield, he's also building materials! :D 

    [​IMG]

    As far as ramps go, he seems to work just fine. Micromasters and even Cliffjumper roll down him with too much trouble.

    [​IMG]

    Of course, ya kinda need two to make the ramp work with Omega without connecting it to anything.

    [​IMG]

    It only takes one to clip on Optimus's trailer and have things work smoothly, though.

    He fits in Omega's rocket mostly fine.

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, he's a little guy with a plank on his back, an easy conversion, and typical -Master-level articulation. At US$5.99 or so, he's still a nice little inexpensive accessory for your bigger 'bots. Recommended, especially if you can get more than one! I think six to ten might be sufficient if we get more base-bots in Earthrise! :D

    I love soundbarrier... after I spent an hour fixing the hips. I can see how people have been breaking them and there is a way to prevent it:

    Long story short, Hasbro design group screwed up the clearances for the hips so the upper 2 sides have interferences when you try to move the legs.

    You just need to get in there with the ol' x-acto knife and gradually remove plastic from the affected areas. I did this and now the legs on mine are perfect.

    I have a feeling he will be difficult to find, he is a total troop builder.

    I had to pick up Soundbarrier via BBTS since Wally no longer carries this class. After messing with him a bit, I'm mixed. I love the robot mode but the sword/ramp mode is...eh. I still want to get Slitherfang but jury is out whether I want anymore ramp bots after that. Especially if I have to resort to getting them online unless Wal-Mart carries them again someday.

    I got my lesson with TR Gnaw: I made the mistake of buying eight Gnaws, and in the end I deeply regret wasting so much money on any other transformer.

    I also had the left leg break off. I wish I'd seen this thread first. Hopefully I can get a replacement with all you maniacs buying them all up to troop-build.
