After years of painstaking searching for a reasonably priced original G1 Soundwave, I finally found one. And got him for FREE! Well, pretty much, my cousin wanted all my YuGiOh cards, so I handed the dumb things over (only use for those was currency with him). Now, onto the Soundwave himself. First off, he is in pretty good shape. Joints are kinda loose, but that is to be expected of a 22 year old toy. Stickers are in great condition. There is some chrome wear on his silver buttons/tabs etc. His chest door stills works, something which suprised the hell out of me. He has metal feet, not sure if all G1 Soundwaves had them or not. His copyright information on the back raises an interested question though, it just says: (insert funky japanese symbols here) (C) TAKARA CO. LTD. '74, '83, JAPAN There is no Hasbro stamp. Was this present on the American release? Or did I end up with a Japanese release? Either way, with my birthday being a week from tommorow, this isn't a bad haul. BTW here is a list of the parts that I need for my Soundwave to be complete.
