    $16 is a bit steep but not so bad considering the battle blades originally offered by Japanese TRU to go with Striker OP were priced around $60.

    Does make me wonder if they'll offer the empty energon cube (just a clear plastic box really, that attached to his window chest) that's exclusive to Japanese Amazon's MP-13 Soundwave.

    What happened to these kind of things coming with the figure? Figures like Grimlock, Megatron and either Optimus molds all came with a butt-ton of accessories.

    Mine are still sitting in the baggie next to the coin that came with it. For me it isn't that interesting of an accessory, and I would rather display him with two hands. Now if they put up a preorder for the Soundwave energon cubes, those will be bought, and bought, and bought again.

    I ordered the Amazon Exclusive from Robot Kingdom and got MP12 and Pile drivers for less then the regular price for MP12 Alone from the other online retailers.

    It's a good move on BBTS part to sell to the completists. But it seems like they're selling them loose and not sealed in bags with paperwork like the amazon.jp sets.

    Similar condition sets are sold here in China on the taobao website for 40-50yuan ~ $<8 USD.
