Looks like there is an online release date of 7/18 for Hasbro's MP Soundwave and Co. Anyone interested in teaming up searching for this guy? Hopefully it will be an easy online order but I'm not counting on it.

Eh, I'll just wait until he gets to the shelves.
I am very excited about him, though.
Just wish he came with Ratbat, Overkill, and Slugfest as well.

Less than a week away I am starting to get excited, but also preparing to not find him anywhere. Hey scalpers I won't pay more than 150 shipped...well maybe 155 if I can't find one by the end of August.

I'm excited as well, and I have a total of zero Transformers. Soundwave is the great exception for me. I MUST HAVE HIM. :D

Looks like he went on sale some time early this morning. I snagged one the last ones in this run. Hopefully everyone has the same good luck and can pick one up. I'll post some pics once I get him in hand.

No luck at my local TRU today. :(

They told me they haven't gotten him in yet, which is better than "oh yeah, somebody bought them all already" I guess.

Still a little bummed, though.

Yeah, from what I read on other boards he will be in stores in August. I think he will come back online again once SW hits shelves. I remember having to call around for Prime last year but I found him and the nice lady at TRU held him for 3 days. Here is the SKU if you need it 204083. Also it was a total fluke that I woke up to get a glass of water and decided to check TRU at 5am. There he was already to order. I'll post something to the boards once I see he's hit retail. I check my TRU yesterday and they didn't have any. Good luck finding him, hopefully eveyone who wants one will find one.

SW has been spotted at retail. Here is a link I found at seibertron.

So far it continues to elude me, but I did see the shelf tag for it. :lol:

Haven't seen him yet. I just checked TRU today during lunch and nothing. Been checking online and haven't seen anything yet.

I have been checking in the DC area as well and still nothing. Maybe this week he'll show up. I have one already but the box was trashed during shipping. Hoping to find a better box to swap out and give the other figure away. Happy hunting

Found him today! :mrgreen:

They had Acid Storm as well for $75, but MP's are too expensive for me to collect a full set of Seekers.

You were on a roll buddy! You found just about every new thing that Hasbro makes at TRU. Maybe I need to borrow that lucky rabbit's foot you've got. :wink:

Hey, Transformers experts, do Frenzy or Rumble have waist joints in this version? I can't tell and I don't want to force it.

The birds are awesome. Ravage seems a bit undersized to me, but he has great articulation. And Soundwave himself just looks fantastic.

There is no waist articulation on Frumble. I did notice that there is a centimeter of vertical movement which gives a nice separation between the waist and chest. I really like the cassets too, but I still can't believe that the Takara versions were so expensive. I also can't believe people are paying 200+ for SW on eBay. The figure still hasn't hit all the retail stores yet. I don't think fans should give up hope so quickly. Best of luck to everyone still hunting.
