    Received my payment request from showz last night for Soundwave so that's cool.

    The fact that the 2nd tape is the rover drone is a bit disappointing, but oh well, I guess MS will release the other 4 tapes in a greatest hits/Soundwave sings the blues type of box set.

    It is good for them, but I think most people want Laserbeak than Ratbat.

    And that's prolly why they did it. They do Soundblaster/Ratbat, there are folks who would be all, "Eh, I'm only in for G1 cartoon characters, so I don't need this!" They package Laserbeak with Soundblaster though, they may lose some folks, but they'll get others to double dip. That's also prolly why they're releasing Soundblaster first. There are prolly more people who would get Soundblaster just because they want something now, and then get Soundwave later because he's the right color, than those who will buy Soundwave if he was first, and then also be interested in the Soundblaster recolor.

    There's a separate tape set with four tapes: Frenzy, Ratbat, Ravage and Buzzsaw.

    Just buy that?

    Really wish his the screen on the tape deck wasn’t so transparent (it does look better when empty) and his color isn’t quite what I’d like (definitely a few shades too light), but I do like Rumble’s colors.

    That's cool then. I'm thrilled to finally have some confirmation of a Buzzsaw.

    the autoscout is such a garbage cassette they should have just left that out.

    in fact i am kind if bummed with all these shenanigans from Ms. just sell it all as one pack and charge what is appropriate.

    we shouldnt have to jump through hoops to collect the bots we want.

    it does have the eye. but it is not included in this set. if you want the eye you have to wait till the shattered glass version is released to finally get the eye.

    but be forewarned the SG set will not come with SG ravage. it only has the eye and SG ravage will be included in the clear release.

    Packaging Soundwave with autoscout is a garbage move imo, especially when he only comes with one other tape. How many of us associate Soundwave with autoscout? Many folks don't even know who/what autoscout is. Ugh.

    If MST had to parcel these out, I wished they had done so thusly: Lazerbeak + Ravage or Frenzy + Rumble with Soundwave, Ratbat with Soundblaster, and the remainder in separate back. My ideal scenario, however, would have been the core four (Lazerbeak, Ravage, Frumble) packaged with Soundwave.

    Agree with those who have said the blue looks a little to light. Rumble's face looks a little iffy too. Gonna need a closer look at that...

    true business is business and i might just take my biz elsewhere. if they continue to muddy the waters with these releases it makes the other alternatives seem that much more enticing.

    i dont want anything for free. but at the same time dont nickle and dime me either.

    i was all in in these and about to dump my IF bot & minions. but at this point i might just grab the IF soundwave and frumble and just call it a day.

    also, i just peeked at their weibo and they are also catching shit about these release pattern.
