While it may not be the G1 Soundwave Walmart exclusive we’re all holding our breath for, Takara Tomy has a (more expensive) Soundwave reissue in the horizon. The Transformers Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave With Laserbeak figure is on its way. It has an MSRP of $150, will ship November 2019, and can be preordered from BigBadToyStore or HobbyLink Japan today.
What’s amazing about this is that through this reissue, fans who didn’t get a chance to snag the Masterpiece Soundwave the first time around (it now costs about $300) will be able to own it via Takara Tomy for a much more affordable price.
Decepticon MP-13 Soundwave transforms into his classic tape deck mode and is much bigger than the original G1 version! His chest compartment opens and is scaled to accommodate the original G1 and new Masterpiece mini-cassettes, including his Condor cassette. He features a spring-loaded panel inside his compartment to allow up to 3 cassettes at once!
Soundwave includes a concussion blaster and non-firing rocket launcher, and unlike the G1 toy, they can be stored in his back instead of becoming batteries for his tape deck mode. He also comes with a wrist-mounted sensor, has integrated speakers in his forearms, a complete Megatron gun, an empty energon cube that can plug into his chest panel, and a grid-pattern display that fits over the chest door.
Decepticon MP-13 Masterpiece Laserbeak transforms from bot to cassette or bird and can perch on the tabs of Soundwave’s shoulders and forearms.
