    I was just browsing around and saw these. Pre-orders for Takara Tomy TA-25 TFA - Sound Blaster. Approximate release, June or July.

    Japanese Transformers Animated - TA25 Sound Blaster - Transformers Animated Japanese Figures at BigBadToyStore
    WasabiToys - Product
    TA25 Soundblaster Tomy(TakaraTomy) Transformers
    Japanese Transformers Animated - TA-25 Sound Blaster / Soundblaster - ToyArena.com
    Alpha Prime Toys - Animated: TA25 Soundblaster


    Is this the first character that Takara Tomy will release that is not part of Hasbro's existing and announced Animated line up? Or is a mistake? Or is this something else?

    Look at the price. It's the activator Soundwave.

    It's clearly the Activator class. The question is will it be an Activator Soundwave or a redeco as Sound Blaster?

    I think it's Electrostatic Soundwave. Wasn't the original Soundblaster made when Soundwave was rebuilt in some Japanese '80s TF show? Maybe they just called him that to keep the Soundblaster thing going, instead of just adding a prefix to the name.

    This was known since we first got the second batch of listings for Takara's Animated.

    I imagine it's the Activator just in black.
