    So, tonight I was looking through the selection of BBTS TFs and am considering buying MP Soundwave. I was wondering if there are any drastic differeces between the two MPSW figures (1st and 2nd productions)? Does anyone know? Thank you.

    I'm pretty sure there are no differences at all. It's merely a reissue. I'm certain someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't believe there are any differences. I have the reissue and my figure doesn't have any major QC issues that the first doesn't have. Great paint job, firm joints, but still has the flashing on the facemask and the chrome on the buttons is worn around the edges.

    I have the 2nd run and he still has the flashing on the edge of his face plate, though it's very minor compared to some photos I've seen.
