    Yeah, I don't tend to double-dip, so I'm getting MS for default wavy, and then NA if they make a nice repaint

    Nah, these are my only two Soundwaves.

    I should take a pic with my KO USB Ravage & MMC’s Ravage and Glit sometime, tho.

    i agree, although the tapes were never that good but decent given their size, i still think my mini DX9/PT soundwave is great! and definitely a keeper in my collection. and i picked up two given how cheap they were/are. both combined were less than soundblaster w/ laserbeak! :confused:

    He's finally here! And I'm.... undecided.

    There are definite improvements over my HS Soundwave, but at the same time, it just feels a little "blah." I did get the sticker sheet with him, but I really have no desire to apply decals to this figure, or any figure for that matter (beyond the faction logos, and that's a recent development for me). Something about him just feels less imposing than the HS version. I know the MST aesthetic tends to be "smaller," but I don't know.. He might just not fit my tastes.

    I am still debating ordering the tape set, just to have them if I do decide he's going to replace HS Soundwave on the shelf, but I definitely won't be ordering the black version just for Laserbeak and I feel like that leaves a hole in the display.

    It's a really tough decision.

    my 2 cents... should have gotten soundblaster instead and passed on soundwave.

    I don't have a place for Soundblaster in my collection, even more so now that I have this guy in hand, the look and feel of him just hasn't settled in yet. I'm hopeful that it will, but if it turns out that I never come around to him, I may just order the tapes anyway and display them with my HS Soundwave.

    Mine arrived with the cassette pack today. i like SW a touch less than I hoped, but I still enjoy him enough. The tapes are a touch awkward, and despite seeing pictures, are shockingly small. The slider on the Frenzy/Rumble weapons is crazy! Their size gives them a definite charm though. I want Laserbreak, but have no need for Soundblaster and can't quite pull that trigger.

    I quite like him with the red insignia. Next project is to paint his visor and the holes in his shoulder cannon red.

    What color are you going to paint his eyes? Also... that Laserbeak pose :confused: 

    Soundblaster: "Laserbeak, eject. Operation: stop humping my arm!"

    Bright red. Brighter red. Brightest red.

    Lazerbeak is just buffing his gauntlet. It's not nearly as risqué as how Rumble does his rear hipskirt.

    it does look good. but can't justify buying a sheet of decals just to use ONE on ONE figure. :p 

    maybe i'll frame him as a turncoat and put a red autobot decal on him instead! :D

    Where you at? I'll mail you one. The sheet I have has more red ones than I'll ever use.

    I've been avoiding this thread because I'm so bummed out. After a week of calls to the post office, apparently the driver, after deeming my building insecure to deliver to twice in a row, felt it was somehow safe handed my package to a random small child in front of my building and assume it would make it inside. There are only two other families in my building, and none of their kids were handed my package. It wasn't insured by the Ebay seller. So I'm left without a magic Square Soundwave AND out $46.

    Damn, man, that really sucks. You would think USPS would be on the hook for that stupidity. Then again, I guess we're lucky our post-people haven't started asking for gas money.

    Thanks. Apparently, because it was scanned as "Delivered" everyone is basically operating under the assumption that I'm the one lying. Had it never gotten delivered, I'd have been able to get a refund via Ebay. I'm going to try and reach the postmaster Monday and plead my case to a higher level.

    But this is a lesson as to the risk of that cheap, cheap shipping from China.

    Not sure how the US postal service handing a package to a random kid on the street equates blame to the risk of cheap shipping from china.. Blatently the fault of usps. sucks bad though I feel for you as I have sb/sw traveling painstakingly slow from showz and if the usps passes those to a stranger, I'm gonna lose it.

    Try going to the usps in person each day til you get someone who cares. Bought a wheelie off a member here just a few states over and they delivered it to the wrong address, just left in a lobby of a big apt building. Over the phone they said they tried to retrieve with no luck. When I went in person they were able to pull it up on GPS see that it was delivered to the wrong place and while they couldn't retrieve it she did take full responsibility and say if the sender wanted to open a case against the USPS that she would back it up and confirm it was their fault so they could get a refund. The member here was a top-notch dude so he just refunded my payment, but I wouldn't give up on getting your $ back.
