    Ironically we measure height in feet and inches, and weigh ourselves in stones and pounds (14lbs to a stone, fyi, American friends). We also still have pints of milk and beer, and measure distance in miles.

    We had to fight the EU to retain those last two. Bloomin' EU and the full-on switch to kg, km, etc!

    I would have preferred if they swapped the legs of the two robot tapes. I wonder if they made a mistake for the assembly of these prototypes... And as i am not getting the tape pack, i wont be able to "fix" this myself if this is intentional (ie not a mistake in assembly and somehow accurate to the show).

    Also, I would have liked if they had included buzzsaw too with the Soundwave pack. Pll would still be getting the tapes as they want the main 3 tapes, i think... well, not me, but...

    I wont be waiting for them to make a Soundblaster version, as they havent announced it, and i want a version i know for sure uses this nice white instead of silver. Yea, i prefer black over blue (and in general, SOundblaster over Soundwave), but the white is so much sexier than silver, and i cant wait for uncertain wishful product. Same for Thomas, and they havent done the repaint on that either.

    I got all the FT Bugs from him along with Kup and Cyclonus with the free stand with out any issue. Their Delivery speed has been great to.

    Ah crap, I didn't read the first part of the meme. It simply was the first I was able to find on that subject. You crazy, english speaking folks! :p ;)

    I think I’m not gonna bother with the cassettes. Have the Rumble Frenzy reissue preordered from MMC and I already have the MMC cassette Ravage so I don’t really need the smaller less toon looking tapes.

    I got all three re-issued Insecticons from Bombusbee last month and had zero issues with them. Shipped in boxes with plastic corner guards on it. Packaged well, considering.

    Yeah I agree. I have them and the mmc ravage and they're beautiful but I keep them with my oversized MP KO starscream and wei jiang Megamaster. They're too big to work as standard MPs.

    So do we have any idea what the full price for Soundwave will be at Bombusbee or the overseas retailers? I couldn’t find any information about that when I PO’d.

    What are you talking about, exactly? The legs are definitely accurate to the show.

    Won't have that issue on soundwave, it was made when QC wasn't a problem with them.

    NOT BIG ENOUGH!

    But in all seriousness, with the whole mass shifting that goes on in the show, I kinda use the movie as my holy grail reference since a much bigger budget was put into it and I assume the animators were more detailed and accurate with the character's portrayals. So I see Rumble/Frenzy to be of this size. And yes, I know there was a shot of 2 Frenzy's :p . And pretty soon, you'll be able to replicate that Rumble choke hold when Tesla 2.0 is released.

    My MP re-issue Soundwave from last year is way worse quality than my MP52 Starscream. The paint, the joints, all the other things, I think that mould may be about done!

    These look pretty nice, but I'm pretty much over both paying and arm and a leg AND having to hustle to clench getting to pay an arm and a leg to the degree it invites price gouging on the secondary market from the get-go.
