    That little purple thing at the front of the picture there... Anyone know what it is? Looks kind of like some sort of binoculars, but it has a peg at the back that fits into the same socket as Magic Square's hands.

    Is it another "that one ten-second-scene" thing for another toy, like that lance that came with Hoist but belongs with Rumble?

    Yeah, my Soundblaster is scary tight and only opens to 60 like the other guy.

    They'll open more than 90 degrees. Just gently apply pressure if it's tight the first time or two. Don't muscle it or you'll get stress marks or worse.
    It's one of those for Soundwave. It's a hand attachment he uses in a scene somewhere. I think there's a pic of it in this thread.

    Ah. The HasTak Masterpiece Soundwave has one too (although MST's looks more like the cartoon; interesting achievement). Comes from S01E09 Fire On The Mountain, and doesn't even get a full five seconds. o_O

    I was totally unaware of this, I put Hoist's accessories in a baggie, stuffed them in a drawer, and promptly forgot about them. But I pulled it out:

    Heh, that's kinda amusing they had the lance packaged with Hoist so far in advance! I always wondered what that thing was supposed to be.

    Mine's a no-go. I got it to open slightly farther, but the backside of the door is impeded by the bottom of the torso. It's not even a case of having to work out tightness; it scuffed off some paint on the back of the door.

    EDIT: Fixed it. Took the torso off and there was a lip of extra plastic across the hinge. Shaved it off and shaved some off the torso as well at the green lines. Door opens completely now.

    not sure how you are getting up to 90. :eek:  i'm only been comfortably getting a little over 45 (maybe 50-60?) and then it looks like the bottom of the door contacts the body already so i don't want to force it down any further. :p 

    EDIT: nvm late post. see your photo proof! ;)  still not sure if i want to push mine that far down. :(

    Look at my post above. I thought it was the door stopping it, but there's excess plastic on the hinge itself. I think @lilcarus speculated it was the problem so I checked mine and after removing a whisker of plastic, it works.

    I'm late to this conversation but, for what it's worth, my Soundblaster's door only opened about 60 degrees out of the box while my Soundwave easily got to 90.

    My soundwave goes almost 90 degrees and Soundblaster goes somewhat less.

    "Tonight on the Howard Stern Show"

    I think one of these is finally going to arrive soon... It's been with Pitney Bowes bouncing around my city for a friggin week now. I think SB got shipped first, but a couple of my show.z orders got scrambled tracking (one didn't work and the other has two trk#). I'm super jelly of y'all and your Decepticon Communicators.

    At last! The rest of the troupe has arrived!

    I was a bit nervous about transforming Soundblaster and getting them all into a cute pose together, but it all worked out. The mushroom peg on his hips did slide out while twisting it around, which is a little worrying. And, I had forgotten that I needed to twist Ravage’s thruster’s wings at first, and just assumed they were glued onto the wrong leg. So, I was initially a little concerned that I’d have to reach out to TFSource to fix that, which was thankfully just an instance of user error. :rolleyes: 

    Anyhoo...

    While Magic Square’s Soundwave and friends are a definite upgrade, I still don’t think of them as a replacement for DX9’s Sonic Wizard and pals. The simplicity of that early set is still very cute to me, so there will remain a place for it in my collection.

    And, being an Iron Factory fan, I will definitely still be getting their Soundwave as well.

    Thus, what Sound Wall and the Tapes Team do contest is whether I will get New Age’s Scaramanga and Co. If NA are the only company to do a Shattered Glass Soundwave and Friends, that might do it. Also, if they’re the only ones who get in on Overkill & Slugfest, then they’ll have a sale from me.

    As for now, though, I am throughly pleased with my first two purchases from Magic Square.
