I just got my MP SoundBlaster today and man what a figure. I was going to pass on this guy but TFSource had him for $120 last week so I picked him up. Am I sure glad I did. I like him much more than Soundwave. Not only do the colors look great the joints are much better. I have had 3 different Takara Soundwaves and two of them has loose shoulder joints right out of the box. Soundblasters joints are all nice and tight. The purple chest piece add-on makes soundblaster look great. Just wanted to let others who may be on the fence that they should consider picking SoundBlaster up, he is worthy addition to a MP collection.
