It's not really identical. It shares the same basic shape, but the tape deck door is double wide, and the Play/rewind/eject buttons are different from the regular Soundwave. The door is also clear instead of a smoky black like on the original.

But it's great otherwise. The reason I bought it was for Laserbeak and Ravage, which aren't cheap on the secondary market.

Sweet - I might need to get my hands on this if anyone comes across one...

As a new dad, I've given this some considerable thought and moved my more valuable pieces to higher locations.  I am also lucky int hat I have a seperate room for most of my things, so I can eventually put a lock on the door.  I am saving a few extra pieces for the kids to open though if they end up being interested in SW.  Would be awesome to have had a 15 year old star wars ship new in package to just tear into as a kid.   ;D

so simone (and dale) died! WOW!  :-X

but, peter will definitely just go back in time and save simone. she was in the dream.  ::)

i wonder if the FBI will decide that mohindar is sylar and arrest him (only to hav linderman bail him out). i bet! becuz sylar will frame him by killing every hero they cross paths with and pointing out how mohindar was always there talking with the hero right before he/she died.  :o

and i bet they will have to keep sylar alive because mohindar finds out he's the cure or something.  :P

Do you think Mohinder has some kind of power?

Is the G1 Reissue pretty much identical to the original Soundwave from the 80's?  I have an original, so I'm not sure I want to fork over $30 for this new one, assuming I could even track it down... :P

Captain Marvel (Photon)

I totally forgot about her - definitely need to get a CM for my Avengers.  I have a custom Kate Bishop (Hawkeye from Young Avengers) on the way and had a custom Cassie made, or I'd be clammoring for those two.

Picked up the wal mart Cantina Tin set for $5 last night.

$5?  Niiiice.  A buck per fig and you get the tin for free.  :o

Got mine about a month ago and still haven't opened it up, but I'm going to do it this weekend!  The packaging on some of this stuff is so good that it almost displays better in the box.  Sure is easier to dust that way.   :P

I bought another Elite and two 442 clones with Rebel Minis.  I'm a clone-a-holic.

I agree with what Brent is mentioning in regards to how to set up the waves of figures.  With the Spider-Man line switching to 5" and movie/video game likenesses, just incorporate the villains (Chameleon, Hammerhead, etc.) and supporting characters (MJ, Aunt May, etc.) into the Legends line - little by little.  I know we'll see some complaining if there is too much of that too, but more balanced waves would be good with me too.

With what we've seen of Wave 3 here, I think the figures themselves look pretty nice - but the lineup just isn't that exciting.  Granted, we're not seeing all of the rumored lineup - at least not so far - with 1st App. Cap, Bucky, and X3 Colossus missing (is that right?).  That makes some difference.  Of what we're shown here, I'll probably pick up the Astonishing Cyclops, because I like that version, and possibly Black Knight.  The Marvel Girl looks like a pretty nice figure, but I don't know if I'll pick it up or not.  I read the "Danger" arc in Astonishing, but still could pretty much care less about the character.  If the rest of the rumors for this wave pan out, I'll probably be picking up 3 of the figures or so.

Again, I don't think the quality is necessarily terrible, just the character/lineup makeup is kind of boring to me.  I guess so much was done in ToyBiz's 15 waves (plus Face Offs, box sets, etc.) there really isn't a whole lot left to do that isn't getting way down the list in minor characters or variations of characters.  Like Mikey said, I'm not necessarily all that excited for the same characters in different outfits ("but she has a new hat!"), so that is part of it too.  The list of characters I'd like to see is shorter and shorter now, so maybe it will be time to wrap things up eventually.  That said, I'm still curious to see if these rumored F4 and Spidey BAF waves pan out, because I'd like to see some all new comic versions of the 4, Doom, Mary Jane (if possible), Mole Man, Namor, etc.  I wish we'd get more word on those rumors.  Anyways, nice to see some new stuff, but a bit of a "meh" to me, just because of the character selection shown.

Agree and disagree.  I agree that the latest runs are a bit boring, but I disagree that there isn't anything left for them to do.  Here's a few barn burners I would love to see:

- New Stealth Iron Man
- Tigra
- Black Queen (X-Men villian)
- Mockingbird
- Crystal (Inhumans/Avengers)
- Sersei
- Jack of Hearts
- Red Overcoat Wonderman
- 1st Appearance Wonderman
- Swordsman

And that's almost entirely just from the Avengers.  Its taken us this long just get to a She-Hulk, Yellowjacket, Black Knight, Quicksilver(!)...there's lots yet to make.

Portions of HML 3 shown at NY Comic Con, pics courtesy of TNI/MarvelousNews. 

Thanks for the tip.  Black Knight looks okay, but they could have done much better.  Not even a removable Helmet?  Bah.  I picked up a BK custom off the internet a year or so ago that is 10x better - feeling more smart about that buy every day.  It was $100, but it also came with his winged horse.

I found a code for HTS, and I'm told it can be used even with the sale going on right now:


I haven't tried it yet, but for those little Rodimus and Thundercracker Titaniums, I might.

How much is this good for?

I assume you mean the Titanium version as they both have diecast.  If that's the case, then I can see why....

Yeah, I'm talking titanium.  He's extremely loose right out of the package - I haven't even tried to transform him.  Is the reissue diecast?
