    After YOTH, Hasbro Asia reissued the Hasbro MP10, the Takara was later. And to me the Takara Soundwave isn't worth the price for what you get vs the Hasbro and the few small differences between the two aren't worth the extra money.

    Just pre-ordered from TFSExpress. Here's hoping that minor face plate flaw is sorted out. My Soundblaster is fine but I know a lot of people noticed it on their Soundwaves.

    I avoid Robot Kingdom. Their shipping costs are nuts.

    Not to mention that the Takara cassettes are prone to cracking and falling apart.

    Yeah ordered mine yesterday from BBTS. I hope as well that we all who preordered can get ours by Christmas.:mail  I made sure to select expedited shipping just in case it should come out a week before Christmas. Since I love the boxes almost as much as the toy:D  I made sure to select the C9 condition box that you have to pay an extra eight for.

    If it was in the black takara box I totally would have done it C9, but I don't really care for the Hasbro MP packaging

    Yeah I can understand that. I love the Hasbro boxes myself since I like the big faction emblem on the left side of the boxes but I will admit that the Hasbro ones lack the more stylized artwork that Takara Tomy tends to go with on there box art. So I can see why more people prefer the TT releases over the Hasbro releases with there box art.

    I actually like the yellow optical visor better. Which is the more toy and Marvel US accurate version. But the red like the cartoon looks pretty cool as well. In my case I like the yellow visor because it gives it much more contrast to Soundblaster which I plan on getting as well.:cool:

    Isn't the "yellow" on the MP more of a gold anyway? That's how all the pics look online.

    I want a G2 yellow soundwave! All yellow! Bwahaha!
