    "By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth!" I am verily astounded!

    so glad I nabbed a preorder of this.

    I do not think anyone even considered Soundwave would come with energon cubes!

    Yea, you can see the wings rotate forward 90 degrees and they fold over the 'front'. The weapons fold down and you see the notches in the wings where the gun barrel fits in.

    seeing lazer beak makes me wonder, i seem to remember one of the excuses for not doing a MP soundwave was because of the enginnering just not being capable at this time.

    wonder if that was ment more for the cassettes than it was soundwave himself?

    but they really nailed this im curious to see his size though if he is the same size as sideswipe i think i could retire SL soundwave

    Lovely. See, when Takara puts their mind to it they can make anything 3rd party companies can and better. Not knocking on 3rd party cuz I own alot of 3rd party stuff. But if Takara wants to put an end to 3rd parties then instead of telling 3rd parties to stop (which is not working) Takara should just make these things that fans want so we don't have to resort to 3rd parties.

    I'm thinking Takara will do Frumble before they do Ravage. With Frumble you get 2 moneymakers for the cost of 1. And Buzzsaw repaint is a no brainer. Buzzsaw, Frenzy, Rumble 3-pack. Thank you Takara sir, may I have another.

    I'd say it's a banker to be MP10 sized as everything after seems to be based off him/the cartoon.

    SW looks amazing! I do think that he's got a spring-loaded feature in his chest, so you can load up 3 tapes. The only comparison I can use is a pistol magazine. The back wall of the tape deck moves into his chest. When you hit eject, the first tape is in the door. Take that tape out, close the door, hit eject again, and there's a second tape in the door. If that's how it actually works, that's some really cool engineering! And HOLY FUDGE! It looks like Laserbeak has his little head-camera! SWEEET!

    Pic with other Cassettes:
    MP13

    Looks wonderful in color. As expected.

    And awesome to see at least Masterpiece Ravage and Rumble (with clip on piledrivers) and Laserbeak.

    Easily possible Masterpiece Frenzy and Buzzsaw.

    That is posetively awesome. And they all look awesome. Must own.

    But darn it I want Ratbat too!


    -ZacWilliam, to be fair I ALSO want Overkill, Slugfest, Squawktalk and Beastbox, Glit and Wing Thing. But I REALLY want Ratbat.

    If you're gonna' drop a bomb like this, you need about 20 more exemption points. And caps. All caps.

    How the hell are you so calm?

    ^ Thank you! So he will come with 4 cassettes (or 3)? Maybe that's the reason for the price increase. with 3 cassettes, definitely justifies the price increase. So beautiful
