    All the fun from this figure certainly got drained away.

    Now I feel like I’m getting fleeced just to get Soundwave with Laserbeak, the most important minion of them all.

    Haven’t decided if I’ll cave or skip and just get NA.

    I don’t think I want to support this bullshit.

    Does it say the price anywhere?

    Imagine nobody buy them, let's see how quickly MST will put out a complete Soundwave set.
    We as customers hold the power, not them.
    You all keep giving in to those companies and they keep jacking up the prices and seperate the sets you really want.
    IF did it, NA did it and now MST is doing it too.
    I was really looking forward to how they presented them in the first place and now to find out that I have to pay an easy 120 to get a complete Legends Soundwave.
    I am out.

    i dont know about that. but IF has always been the best bang for the buck around. they are the most premium brands around and they still deliver a ton of stuff for the price.

    but i do agree with us being the final barometer for this. i am not really sure this will fly off the shelf like they are thinking. lots of MS bots simply dont move just in general. i am not sure what their metrics are for success in such a tough market. but i doubt this will hit it.

    i am fairly certain that this thing would have sold out almost instantly at 80ish if it was a package deal.

    I wonder if they saw NA seekers bundled with space bridge parts and thought the strategy would work with the cassettes, not realising parsing out core characters ain’t cool.

    blue looks fine to me though. They do go for animation colours, for good or for bad. Hoist was a bad green. Grapple and Inferno and Prime were spot on... depends on the character if it works or not.

    I agree on that, a package deal would have been sweet and 80 would be a fair price for the set

    Mine at least has a nose, and is smaller. :rolleyes: 
    I'll be replacing the heads on MST's for sure.

    From what I saw on TB, the set of 4 tapes will be about the same price as Soundblaster.
    There's people griping in Weibo about the tape situation, so we wouldn't be saying anything new.

    I'd say half of the 50 some comments on their post is some form of complaint about the tape situation. Only a few harsh ones though.

    140-160$ for a legends scale Soundwave and a complete sets tapes, that's ridiculous!

    ^This was said with sarcasm, while dusting off Soundwave's spot on my shelf that I've had since he was announced.

    Ride or die with MS!

    Got my full payment notice from ShowZ yesterday!

    I'm not thrilled about the Lazerbeak issue, but I'm still looking for to getting this guy in hand.

    I thought it was only $40 for Soundwave, and $40 for the extra cassettes?

    You guys should just wait for the day when the Complete Magic Square Season 1 pack comes out.
