    Seriously. I would guess he's new to Iron Factory. There are various figures that were announced before Galvatron, so I'd expect all of those to show their faces long before Galvatron does. The updated Soundwave, in particular, is over 2 years in the making:

    Only one (that's still not out) that precedes Galvatron as far as I know is Soundwave 2.0. Are there others?

    Powerglide, Shattered Glass Jetfire, and Scourge were all teased around the same time as Galvatron.

    Also, being numbered doesn't mean anything if there's a delay in a figure's development.

    Their soundwave and that starwing are the exact examples in my mind.

    I hope they do some repaints for this guy, I really want it, but after getting NA Galvatron I don't want to have the same colour scheme.

    out of curiosity, (as i'm somewhat new to this whole thing) why WAS their soundwave delayed by so much? i presume covid didn't help

    No explanation has been given, but my guess would be that adding Frenzy/Rumble later on kinda hurt their finance since quite a few sites already put up soundwave 2.0 for PO after he had been revealed, at the price of a single IF figure, so they might be trying to work around it.

    Hopefully core class soundwave coming out soon is the kick in the butt they might need if they don't want to be beaten by Hasbro, just like the TF BB cybertron characters coming in SS might beat all the 3Ps who were planning theirs.
