    Nice! I'm by no means a completionist and I'm not planning on picking up very many of these reissues but I definitely want me some Soundwave! In fact if I could've gotten literally one g1 reissue at all, it would've been him.

    Now we just need to find out the price. After hearing that OP reissue is at $50, I'm hoping for a miracle that this is around Starscream's pricing.

    STILL have yet to see ANY of the previous re-issues at Walmart. Just ebay listings for double or more of retail. F'n scalpers.

    I'm so excited for this release. My original Soundwave was used as a prop for a Christmas play at church in 1985. We (the kids in the play) were toys in a toy shop and so we were all asked to bring some of our toys to fill out the shelves of the toy store. Well, I got all of the toys i brought to that play back except for Soundwave. So finally I have the opportunity to get the coolest g1 con back into my hands!

    Interesting that it's Buzzsaw and not Lazerbeak. Was that in G1 too?

    The same old reissues....over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again....

    How about doing a reissue thats never been done before ? Headmasters ? Targetmasters that arent Hot Rod or Kup ? Duocons ? Monstrobots ? Or how about going off the success of the dino cassettes and do more reissues of Japan only molds for America ? Deathsaurus ? Raiden ? Liolaiser ? And oh yes, Dinobots dammit Dinobots ! Enough with the BS about the molds were lost, reverse mold those damn things the way the KO guys do it. Make me want to buy G1 again. The same timeless (but boring) characters arent gonna cut it anymore. Especially at prices that for another $40 I can just buy vintage on ebay. No incentive.

    Of all the bots i would like a G1 version of , it is Soundwave I want the most . 

    pity i will have to order it online and then have to justify whatever huge price it is to the mrs ( rather than buying over the counter and smuggling him in )

    Keep in mind not all the molds are available. Many were lost or destroyed over the years.
    Licensing and names might have something to do with it.
    Think about who they are marketing to also. Not just the old school crowd, but also newer fans who never saw these or had the opportunity to get past reissues from over a decade ago.

    He was packaged with Frenzy (the blue one). This is not an invitation to decimate this thread with the age old "Which one is Frenzy/Rumble" controversy.
