    If being the biggest Latin artist in the world with millions of fans correlates to having zero talent, then anyone would do it. Stay salty my friend.

    I asked my younger friends who he was and they had no idea.
    Besides everyone knows Ricky Martin is the hugest latin artist in the world

    That Soundwave looks neat and I like the blast effects, but it's not something I think I'd be interested in. Plus I hate NTWRK.

    I have no idea who J Balvin is but I really like this repaint. This is the kind of garish colour scheme that looks like it came straight from G2 and I love it.

    I think I'll pass on it tho, it's a bit too pricey for my taste and this is definitely more of a neat novelty targeted at his fans rather than something for the average TF fan.

    Facts

    I also have absolute zero interest in Latin music. Garish looking Soundwave too.

    Just because it’s not pop or hip-hop doesn’t mean I don’t listen to “modern music.” PVRIS, Ghost, Bring Me the Horizon, Nothing but Thieves, The Blue Stones…

    You’d be correct, that’s when I knew I was getting old.

    This is so ugly it could be a modern art masterpiece.

    Not my thing, but it could become one of those rare finds for the obscure collector. The colored hair thing is funny.

    I kind of like the deco, but I prefer more modern figures. I'm not the biggest fan of G1 era toys.

    One year ago, I bought a Walmart reissue Soundwave and qc was disappointing. I can still see the mold is deteriorating due to so many usage. Collaborative Soundwave looks like redeco of reissue Soundwave so it would be made from exact same mold I guess. Than I think it would suffer same qc issue just like Walmart Soundwave.

    Buyer Beware!!!! NTWRK is not trustworthy.  Bought Cobra Commander from them when they offered it and because of their shotty app, ended up being charged 4 times. They would not offer a refund or a return of merchandise and ended up sticking me with three extra Cobra Commanders they overcharged me for.  Also, the majority of the \"artist merchendise\" is way overpriced, ugly as all hell garbage like this.

    If you think you’re going to get this figure from this hack and bullshit app, you’re sadly mistaken.
    Look them up and the Classified Cobra Commander fiasco from last year and how that all went down.

    I\'d really love to know how this collaboration came about. Would be really cool if Balvin was an old school fan. For anyone interested, his interview on Hot Ones was a good one:

    Funny that you mention that; I had the odd thought that this would make a fine SG Soundblaster.
