    That is very, very cool. Unfortunately, I will likely pass. I already got the Soundblaster reissue from Takara, and while having Laserbeak would be nice, I don't need two Ravages. Had they stuck Rumble or Frenzy in, I'd be all over this bad boy.

    since this is only a test shot, could hasbro just surprise us with good old soundblaster instead when it's actually released?

    My sox have been rocked.

    I already have a G1 Soundwave, and the extra space in the Soundblaster mold really appealed to me. The red window didn't. I like this. I like it a lot.

    Well it may be a test shot, but it looks close to final given that he retains a clear chest and the proper colors for 'Beak and Ravage. The early testshots where black, but the cassettes were oddly colored too. I'm guessing Hasbro wouldn't pull a fast one at this point. But we probably can't be 110% sure before BotCon or retail.

    But not quite as much sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll combined.

    Still..that's exactly what I was hoping they would do. I'm in for two.

    maybe they coudve named him "waveblaster" or like the Headmaster cartoon series name him "NEW SOUNDWAVE" since he's a mixture of both. just a thought.

    and I guess if anyone really wanted to, they could get a junker soundwave and take him apart and add the original tape door to this one to have a more "original" feeling soundwave.

    I bet some people will be dissapointed with the mold but...

    I've got my childhood Soundwave in working condition. A minty one would have been nice but my G1 Soundwave appetite is under controll.

    A mold variation gets me excited in this case! I'll take one. :)

    Correct, the soundwave reissue uses soundblasters mold with a single tape deck. Easiest way to spot it is the hinge on the tape door and the re-design of the play buttons compared to the original.

    I think I would've preferred the original mold, but I'll pick it up anyway.
