    This is some real rough math since I only own 3 legends figures but NA Megatron is about the same size as MS Optimus right? And MS SoundBlaster is about the size of OP, and MFT Blaster is less than a head taller than NA Megs. It seems like MFT Blaster will work closer with this than MS’s own Blaster

    Whoops, quickly transformed Blaster and forgot to fix his crotch

    Here is a pic of MFT Blaster with MS Optimus from earlier in the thread, it just doesn't look to work well together, and MS Soundwave is a little shorter than that.

    (I thought it was interesting the first pic from your post had zombie Optimus with zombie Soundwave)

    Ah whoops, had my photo math wrong. Yeah looks like MFT Blaster will be a full head taller and MS Blaster will be about a head shorter.

    Will NA Soundwave match MS Blaster? These multiple scales in Legends are confusing

    Apologies if this has already been posted and I've missed it...

    Looks almost perfect to me with NA Megatron and Starscream but so out of scale with their own Blaster mold... really looking forward to getting this in hand now. :D :D

    Really love the way this figure looks except for that little neck piece.

    Paid for my Soundwall at ShowZ, I guess it’ll just sit there for a while until pandemic shipping chills out. Start a ShowZ loot pile.

    I do not understand all these shipping delays and rise of shipping cost on those websites.
    I order from Aliexpress, my shipping cost went from free to 3-4 bucks shipping and I still get my items with in 14 days.

    Yeah I don’t know, everything seems to be different at every place and going to every destination. Everything is weird.

    Ugh, I don't care about Autoscout at all. Not really feeling the flat colours either.

    Overall figure still looks fantastic, but given Magic Square's propensity for re-releases and repaints, I think I'll wait for a metallic version, hopefully with better tapes. (Releasing Laserbeak and Ravage separately is just blasphemous.)

    I don't think anyone wanted the scout to be the 2nd tape. I don't know if I love the shade of blue, I kinda like the look of SoundBlaster better.

    Looks like Rumble is purple.

    Well, they have to put the other tapes in the tape set.

    Huh, Soundblaster sure looks a lot more premium.
    The eventual metallic Soundwave should fix that.

    The sculpt and engineering are great though, either way.

    Actually, I guess Soundwave coming with cartoon Rumble and Soundblaster coming with Laserbeak kinda makes sense. That way the tape set can be a nice even four, and are all unique, no repeats. Also, by making it one of each, they can conveniently release a recolor set of Enemy, Wingthing, Garboil, and Howlback. They couldn't have done that if the tape set contained Frumble, since there's only one other one of him, or the autoscout, because most people don't even want one of him, much less two.
