Any ideas why, in the midst of all the other TFP characters getting new molds for the cyberverse subline, Soundwave got a repaint of his DotM legion toy? I mean, I'm not too worried about him eventually getting his own mold (maybe even as a Commander class toy), but I'm still puzzled.

There are some non-TFP toys in the same Cyberverse assortments. The Prime logo isn't on their packaging. I imagine Soundwave is one of those.

The other non-Prime toy in that assortment is a red Sideways repaint as Mirage.

I would guess they're things Hasbro already had on tap with the idea of keeping the Movie toys going a bit longer, and when that didn't happen they shuffled them over to the Prime Cyberverse instead.


-ZacWilliam, I think from here on it'll be pretty Prime centric...

I see what y'all are saying about the shuffled mirage and Evac, but the Soundwave seemed to be put in colors that were deliberately meant to evoke TFP Soundwave, suggesting that this repaint was (at least for now) meant to be seen as a replacement for a new-mold Soundwave based on the TFP show model. Just seems weird to me.

I think his colors are based on the Soundblaster-y DOTM deluxe repaint that we're not getting.
