    Is it just me, or does this look less 'cost effective' than some of the RID Voyagers?

    Thanks for the pics!

    Much as I'm turned off of Soundwave by his being so big, I have to say though that his size is encouraging re: Grimlock.

    As if Grimlock ends up that big, he should fit pretty well in scale with everyone else (he's pretty massive in FOC after all).

    Isn't it weird that stores in Australia are getting these toys faster than the pre-orders? Will we hear something of the pre-orders soon or is the estiminated dat still November/December after all?

    Just a quick question. If you pull back the lever just enough to fit in a single disk, how does the back look? I notice that the lever is quite noticeable when pulled all the way back, but I hope you don't see it much if you just want to store a single disk.

    With all the downsizing going on, which honestly doesn't bother me all that much, it's still nice to see a good size toy. Grimlock should be especially impressive if he's as big/bigger than Soundwave.

    The gimmick looks fun and it's nice to see a large Voyager, but he's got no place in my collection due to the scale (which has been amazingly consistent with the FoC D'Cons so far).

    I have my classics and game figures together so grimlock would fit in good for me. I might use soundwave with my decepticon MPs if I don't get a soundwave MP

    I feel the same way.

    MP Soundwave is coming, don't want two of a mold (unless they're seekers) and I need a classics Blaster.

    Yeah, SW's a BEAST, lol.

    You know though, I think this will work for Blaster as he was always quite huge in G1.

    These pictures are great. The figures look good but I am torn on whether I really want/need both or not. I already have WFC Soundwave so I may end up just going for Soundblaster, but thanks for posting all the pics Razor.

    His arms doesn't seem to be attached to his body quite good at all.

    Also some questions to Razor24; Are his arms on ball joints?

    I like him good enough.

    There's some parts it does better than the deluxe, there's some parts it does worse. People who have the WfC deluxe shouldn't really feel bad if they can't get their hands on this one, but the fact he is compatible with minions is sweet.
