    I'd probably put him tied for 2nd place, and I have a LOT of soundwaves. Number 1 is obviously Acoustic Wave, #2 is tied with NA and MS though i think NA might be just a bit better.

    Yeah, I think it works, but I would also like if New Age made Tape Packs for Soundwave and Blaster, and then make SGs of them, too. :3

    Also, I think there are some very off-putting sculpting choices with their Soundwave, most especially his spindly arms and bulbous eyes, but at least the head sculpt is better on the SG.

    And, thanks for the shoutout, Warpshard!

    Yeah I think a new headsculpt, tweaked arms, royal blue, and a fixed cannon would make NA wave perfect.

    Man, I"m such a toy snob.
    Decided to play around with my MFT Blaster, then looking at this. I keep telling myself he's fine... But then I look at this again and I'm about to pre-order one

    Don't feel too bad. I have the MFT one, the MS one, and have the NA one on preorder LOL

    When I got into this in 2022 I was a MS guy but would buy MFT for the bots I couldn't find. But ShowZ put their Z deco'd Bee, Cliffjumber, & Devastator on sale and now I am 1 bot a way from having all the Autobots released so far and a good chunk of Deception's LOL

    Do you think we will get Blaster before Trailbreaker & Hoist? I'm guessing yes since we've seen the toy for it but not for the former two.

    I would think Gorgo and Blaster are coming before Trailbreaker and Hoist.

    If nothing else, there will be more tapes to go with this Blaster instead of just Ramhorn

    As a Magic Square customer that is unhappy with the size of Magic Square's Blaster, I'm happy to see Louie will scale perfectly with my collection. In fact, switch the MS and the NA and you have the perfectly sized character in both collections.

    I believe they chose to name him Louie as a nod to one of the Top Gear presenters.

    Interesting. All this time I thought it was after Louis Armstrong.
