    IConsider what happ ened last year, hasbro revealed very little at botcon, but made their bivg reveals at san diego comic con. Mainly because they were riding the movie hype. This year the big hype machine is the fall of cybertron game. And since grimlock is featured so prominently in the advertisment for the game it would be stupid for hasbro to not make a new grimlock toy. Especially since they brought back the voyagers for generations. Just wait and watch folks, at sdcc hasbro's gonna ride the foc hype machine and reveal a brand spanking new generations voyager grimlock. He'll be wave 1 with soundwave and perhaps in wave 2 we'll get another dinobot, maybe sludge

    Was gonna beat the Blaster-horse some more, but I see that it's dead.

    On a semi-related note, Hasbro can resculpt that gun handle into usefulness anytime; it won't hurt my G1-ness or anything.

    I'm not impressed with the Voyager, sure they recreated the Tape-Deck gimmick, and that alone is almost enough to buy one of the Voyagers. But this is where I think they should have just reissued the Deluxe and make the deployer compatible instead of a new Voyager.

    Deluxe Soundwave superior, Voyager Soundwave... is good, but a good gimmick is not enough.

    :inquisiti iam really on the fence about this. i like all the new parts and the opening chest for a minion, but the recycled deluxe soundave parts almost ruin it for me. its gonna be a while before i can determine to buy this or not.

    While the Cybertronian Soundwave didn't do too much for me (since it looks so much like the deluxe), THIS has piqued my interest! Looks INCREDIBLE!

    They both look nice. Now how about some Rumble/Frenzy/Ravage/Ratbat discs?

    I'm surprised Soundblaster doesn't have the ability to hold four as opposed to three discs.

    Also, do I see Blaster/Twincast in the works with Rewind/Eject/Steeljaw/Ramhorn discs?

    I'm intrigued by the gimmick, but I'm not so enthralled with the sacrifices made for it. To start with the way the deluxe's chest opened actually followed the shape of the chest. Here that shape is just a facade with a generic hatch flap. And since the shoulder cannon no longer has a proper storage space there, it just ends up as junk on top of the car. Also he seems to have stolen G1 Optimus' gun, pointless realistic handle and everything.

    I like Laserbeak, but otherwise I'm kind of on the fence. I'm happy enough with the deluxe.

    Lookin really cool so far, the mold looks very solid, though the chest opens in a way I didn't expect. The colors are very nice on both (though I'm wondering why Soundwave STILL doesn't have a game-accurate yellow visor), but I'm getting really worried about his wrists - do they even swivel? It'll be a big letdown if they don't. And seriously...why the hell does he have G1 OP's gun? That's gotta be a mistake.

    Laserbeak (and Buzzsaw) both look really cool, and I'm still just amazed that Hasbro is finally making a Voyager Soundwave with Legends class cassettes.

    that mold is so embarrassingly awful even by High Moon design standards. Ugh. and we still don't have a proper Soundwave from the modern era. (TF:p rime Soundwaves kinda cool, but a totally different vibe)

    I was going to post about how i was going to pick up my WFC Soundwave, but i just can't.:sly2: 

    This figures is really very stunning.:drool:  the problem i had was mostly the size, soundwave cant be bigger than Prime, Magnus, and Megatron! but no, i'll figure out a way for him to squat down or something.

    gotta have him and the minions. Heres hoping for frenzy and rumble...and hoping they can sit in that little seat in his vehicle mode.
