A first look at Soundblaster for the non-Botcon crowd. Ch-ch-check 'em out.

Optimus is going to want his gun back eventually.

I'm glad we're getting new tapebots, but nothing can make me like that Soundwave design.

Oh come now. What if they smashed it with a hammer? That could help.

I think that design looks great at Voyager size. It was wonky as a Deluxe (still good, mind), but way more filled out now.

But now I need a Voyager Megatron.

Yep, I want a Voyager Megatron, Prime, and Grimlock now. Glad we finally got a Soundwave with all the bells and whistles again, but he's pretty huge compared to everything else from WFC/FOC. I was definitely struck by what a large toy he was in person.

I'm more and more unsure this is a wise choice. Soundwave already had a toy. Of all the FOC characters, they make SOUNDWAVE the larger toy for the sake of his cassette throwing gimmick, but meanwhile characters like Optimus Prime, Megatron, Shockwave and just any other larger robot is Deluxe size. I may just keep the Deluxe and give him the Legends sidekicks. Who cares if they don't fit inside?

Yeah, but on the other hand, I bet this will look awesome next to Classics Megatron.

Hmm.. that was not how I was expecting his chest to open.
I was thinking more Depth Charge, less Hurricanger/Ninja Storm.

Still an awesome gimmick though.

Here's hoping we get to see the Prime voyagers soon.

Does the panel inside his chest slide back so he can store more than one disc at a time? I guess that's pretty neat.

I will be interested to know if Soundblaster is New Soundwave or if he's a different character entirely.

Not sure which one I want. I'm leaning toward Soundblaster, if just for Buzzsaw and the yellow eyes.

...I wonder if we'll see a purple version, from the club or something. With Garboil, maybe?

I think they look REALLY good.

If the fists rotate then he's downright AWESOME. Either way he looks SOOO much better than the previous version of that design. I though that one was terrible and passed. THIS is must own.

I didn't think I'd want both, as I have no attatchment to Soundblaster, but darn it if I don't need Buzzsaw and he does look great.

I'm in for both AND every data disk con they make. I would care less without that gimick but it is THE CORE of what Soundwave and his minnions are about for me. And I love that they took them in a modern Bakkugan direction. It's just the perfect update of one of the classic play patterns.

As I said before, I want Soundblaster just so I can see about making a toy of Database since he's black and has some similar desgin elements to Soundwave.

Was anyone else surprised the alternate version is New Soundwave rather than a head & chest (well, head & disc-door) remould into Blaster?

Blaster? Don't you mean Billy?

Since we seem to be using the names from the StarTV dubs of Headmasters.
It all began in '84. Kept on rollin' in '85. The pieces were in place in '86, and it came to an end in '87. But now it comes, and here we go. Transformers is here again. Nothing's gonna stop it 'cause it's 1988!

He can store 4 discs at a time if my Botcon memory serves.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Darn that Soundwave.


I'll probably pick up one or the other. The gimmick is too fun to ignore.
