    I was actually a little surprised by how much flashing was on my Soundwave, Soundblaster, and the three tapes (haven't gotten the tape 4-pack yet). It's fine, I have plenty of craft knives and enough practice using them, but I haven't gotten a figure in a long time that had any noticeable amount of flashing, and was caught off-guard.

    I wonder which is most likely, because neither my Soundwave or his accompanying taps have any flashing at all. At least, nothing noticeable enough that I thought I needed to do any sort of cleanup.

    I just ordered the tape pack, so I guess I'll see when they get here. For now, Voice Ripple is back in his box, while I decide if he's going to make it on the shelf or not.

    Bot modes for the tapes look great. Tape modes, not so much except for the birds. Ravage really looks good in jaguar mode. I'm impressed by ravage in such a small size.

    Hasbro should copy these tapes and mod them for Siege.

    It's a well-known fact that Optimus is short in real life. When they first started casting for the role, producers felt he had "leading man looks", but was woefully undersized compared to his cast mates. They solved this problem by having Optimus stand on milk crates for medium and closeup shots, and utilized forced perspective trickery for wider shots (a method later perfected in The Lord of the Rings movies). When all else failed, they just drew everyone in frame poorly.

    Your toys are fine together.

    $8 a piece is fine by me even tought they are small.
    But I see MST soundwave also dropped in price already on Aliexpress, so I might get both.
    $64 for a Soundwave with 6 tapes total is a fair price

    Your post unfortunately made me remember that I was in possession of a trash type pokemon myself. Sadly this is the closest scale Blaster for ms Soundwave at this time:confused: 
    No problem, after this picture, he was stored away and banished from existence in my mind once more:cool:

    Does anyone know why the cassette pack comes with four magnets? They don't seem to apply anywhere to the figures.

    i believe the duck announced on twitter that China is spreading CV19 by packaging mini magnets in TF toys to extend the range of 5G .

    They can go in the holes in Soundwave's, Soundwall's, and Megatron's feet (though I believe Megatron includes his own in his pre-order bundle if you got it). MST will probably continue to put magnet holes in their figures' feet going forward.
