Yea, they really phoned it in with the box art here. Still looking forward to him, regardless.
We always knew this version of Soundblaster wasn't going to come with Laserbeak/Ravage.
I knew he wasn't going to come with any cassette-bots (though I did hope I was wrong ).
However, due to the fact that he can carry two cassette-bots in his chest, I thought that the black Dr Wu Chatter set that matches his deco (right down to the red eyes) suited him perfectly.
I paired Dr Wu's previous cassette pack P50B Scout with my Hasbro 35th Soundblaster.
If you do Reprolabels, they released a Soundblaster set that even specifically had stickers that referenced the P50B Scout cassettes!
I'll probably end up adding the P51B Chatter to Soundblaster's cassette squad too.
Are there reviews of this guy anywhere?
I originally had this guy ordered, but I cancelled my order, and got 35th anni Soundblaster off Walmart’s website for $30, and he got here way sooner than this guy would’ve.
I like the merc symbol on the TT version. That way it's like a new character instead of just a "rebuilt Soundwave"
I've always preferred Soundblaster as a different character from Soundwave.
Also, I'm always down for a new Mercenary in my collection - though I don't really like the design of the symbol that much.
It has less battle damage on the chest and legs too for what it’s worth, so I’m more than happy to get it since I started collecting around the end of Siege / beginning of ER.
I think some of that is the fact we've seen the bot/con symbols since 84. IIRC, the merc symbol was created for Earthrise, so there's a certain familiarity with the old symbols that just isn't there for the mercs. I like that Doubledealer had bot bot and con symbols, but after seeing the Netflix show I'm a little disappointed that he doesn't have merc symbols too...
No. Just the chest. Legs are the same.
I compared the in pack shot to mine.
Hmm. Didn't notice that subtle detail. I might have to rethink my purchase...
if anyone is interested TCP has Soundblaster in.

I guess I'll like the Mercenaries better as a group. It's just too bad we didn't get Doubledealer as one of them.
I can’t wait till mine ship from Pulse.
Like a dummy I waited too long to pull the trigger for this Soundblaster on Hasbro Pulse. Luckily Robot Kingdom has him in stock. Shipping is a killer as per usual, but the list price is lower than Pulse. In the end I got it for $56 shipped. Not bad really.
Takaratomy Mall Exclusive Transformers Siege SG-EX SOUNDBLASTER. Available Now!
that’s a fantastic price for Soundblaster from overseas. I paid $48 for the figure from Hasbropulse. Usually the late tax on a figure is way higher - around double to triple the retail pricing.
