Grrr...I need something to add to Acid Storm to get free shipping.
Huh. Well that's a bummer. Managed to order one today but haven't gotten a confirmation email. That's probably why.
Oh well. I'm a patient dude. I can wait.
Get Legends Hoist like I did : )
You guys got Hoist already? Holy cow!
I think he is talking about the GDO Legends version.
I would'nt mind having the TRU MP Soundwave, but I already have the Takara version.
I have the 2nd run Takara Soundwave on pre-order. I feel he is better overall in terms of show accuracy and quality due to Die Cast parts and the red eyes. September can't come soon enough!
I didn't think the Takara SW had any more die cast (feet only, right?) than the Hasbro version...
The only difference between MP-13 and the Hasbro one is really the yellow visor vs. the red. You're getting everything in the Hasbro release as you would in the MP-13 set(1 energon cube, gun megatron, screen, scanner, Laserbeak/Condor and tape case) and more.
And Takara has inside of feet painted?
That's really a sticking point for some people, isn't it?
for what its worth, in Las Vegas at the North 5th store, the manager showed me the warehouse stock. He showed me that they have over 10,000 masterpiece soundwaves and 1,000 acid storms also at the warehouse distribution center for the South West area.. He said for some reason they are holding them back... I laughed and told him it was great strategy.
My mistake, I thought takara's had die-cast feet. Either way I already have Takara's cassettes on order so I would rather have Takara's for the red eyes.
Oh right. To be fair it's such a minor thing for me that it's hard to really even remember that's a thing.
Ordered Acid Storm along with some batteries. The batteries are getting ready to ship, but the figure was delayed >.<
I was a someone who ordered SW on Monday. I got a shipping delay and today got my shipping notification email. I finally got him. To all that get a delay be patient your order is in and they're coming. ;^)
Would that be 9:00PM PST (August 17)/12:00PM EST (August 18)? Just making sure because my buddy wants to grab one
It's worth buying the Takara one for that reason (for me).
I understand people being upset with the fact that the insides of his feet are bare plastic. That was a turnoff for me as well. But I've had him displayed since the day I got him, and not once have I noticed it. So much so I totally forgot about it till I saw this thread and people mentioning they prefer the Takara version because of this issue. Unless you have his feet splayed (who stands like that!? lol) you're not gonna see it.
Only difference is the yellow visor. Not sure about the panels on the feet though, TRU version is silver plastic. But the visor I can fix by taking the head apart and getting a piece of clear red plastic to stick there.
And like the Takara version, the box is not a window box, it doesn't have a flap or anything. But it is a very nice box.
Bad thing is, the thruster pack wings on Buzzsaw and Laserbeak are not strong enough to flip up, and break easily if you put too much force on them. They should have been die cast instead of plastic. Other than that, I see nothing else bad about him, well, Ravage could have been better looking, as it is, I have my custom Universe (Hound) Ravage as a stand in when I have them in bot modes.
I forgot, the tips of his index fingers, they are not on a pin, they are just popped in, and with little pressure they pop off easily....kind of sucks a little, and you have to be careful you don't lose the damn things.
