    I just don't see how we can excuse clearly horrible toys like this. It ONLY looks good in alt mode, nothing more. For the price of a HA figure you can get a comparable model kit and do it yourself. Considering the paint job, all it takes is just some time to build and painting it would be dreadfully simple. Primer then basecoat and seal.

    I just don't get it. I don't think I ever will. I was going to get this, but the review turned me off completely.

    Where did you order from? BBTS? I need to find a store that'll ship him internationally.

    And here we have the second HA with less back kibble than the deluxe. Glad to hear he's better in hand, but is he really that much smaller than the other HAs, as in he's not in the same scale? I thought it was just a smaller car in general anyway...

    Thanks. I'll wait a week or so anyway for news on the eventual Hasbro release (which won't appear in my country anyway), but if nothing shows up it's ordering time.

    Nice review! One thing I would have liked on this figure (aside from silver paint) is that they could easily have made it so the gull wing doors were attached to the trunk section in order to beef up the lower legs and give Soundwave some actual shins and feet (and not just tripod toes).

    As it stands, the gull wing doors are all just so much useless kibble hanging off the back of his arms and shoulders. A little disappointed with that design decision there, but overall, I still do like the look of this guy. Aside from airbrushing his alt mode silver when I get him, I'll see if I can remove/unscrew and fiddle with that back kibble and give Soundy some leg mass somehow; partsforming be damned!

    This is a PG-13 board, the mods found out that was 12 so he's blocked until
    around February. You can still send him PM's.
