I never found MP Soundwave at retail, or even available online. I didn’t care to bother with the Japanese version which doesn’t come with all of the cassettes. I don’t really collect MP, so I kind of wrote it off as an “oh well”. Then there was a rerelease for Hasbro Asia, a release that’s basically the US version, Soundwave with all 5 cassettes, and I jumped on the chance to pre order. And then that order came in, and it shipped, and now it’s here.
He’s everything I had hoped for. I mean for a bit less I could have gotten the dodgy Titans Return version with all of his mediocre tape buddies, but instead, I have this glorious perfect Soundwave.
I wanted to throw a few more things in my Pile of Loot as well, so I also finished off my Firefly line up, since they were all on clearance, with Kaylee and Jayne. They are both about as expected for Funko figures, including Kaylee’s hand breaking right off the first time I tried to turn it.
