This really stinks. I held off on the MAS Optimus and Megatron figures because I was waiting to get Soundwave first before jumping into a new line. This Soundwave and Laserbeak set looked to be the best so far. I don't know the details of licensing but it's a shame that Toys Alliance can't produce this awesome set because of their license expiring. Meanwhile, 3P and KO companies run rampant, producing whatever they want, in direct competition with HasTak.
