    They do? I didn't know that.

    In that case we have a different head for SG Soundwave and also different parts for the cassettes. It's not proof, but perhaps this makes it more feasable that it was difference in tooling that enabled Hasbro to release SG Soundwave, and not a time limit on the exclusivity deal with Walmart.

    Well, Laserbeak is very slightly different. His head is the Siege/Cybertronian version (with the visor), not the NF/Earth mode (with 2 separate eyes) version. Ravage however is exactly the same, as his mold didn’t change between Siege and NF.

    Ravage had a different head as well, Siege had closed mouth and Netflix had a snarling mouth

    Do we have any sources anytime in the last decade that says the "different tooling getting past a contract" is a thing though? Because unless we have something newer than fifteen years ago for a contract with a convention company that was the one producing the exclusive tooling themselves, I think the invocation of that idea itself pertaining to modern contracts with retailers for mold exclusivity is unfounded conjecture with no basis in confirmed relevant fact.

    Well crap! I ditched the Siege one so quickly after getting the NF one, I never noticed! Thanks for the DL.

    No problem, it's definitely something that is easy to overlook since they're so small

    Saw him in stores at least 3 times, didn't bother as I'm good with the Siege one (no nostalgia about the walkman, though I love the cassettes or such mini/stored figures).

    I contemplated buying them to resell and could have made money, but I just don't jive that way and not a fan of people that do that sort of thing.

    But did help a fellow collector (form my local Facebook group) to get one of them.
