This Fancy Soundwave Figure Is Probably The Coolest Transformer Of 2012

The Transformers Masterpiece line of figures exists for one reason: so cashed-up adults can buy giant, expensive versions of toys that finally look like they should have back in the 1980s.

They've been a little hit-and-miss of late, some wonderful figures (like Grimlock) balanced out by some lazy repaints (ie every Decepticon jet), but this upcoming Soundwave piece might just be the best one yet.

While it costs over USD$150, it does come with a Laserbeak figure, as well as accessories like a cassette case, a little Megatron gun, a non-transforming cassette and, best of all, an empty energon cube.

Due in December, there'll also apparently be more of his little cassette minions like Ravage and Rumble released in 2013.

The shots here are from a prototype figure; you can see him in colour, as well as get a good look at his accessories, here.

    Dont tell hasbro

    If you are into TF check out tfworld2005 it is by far the best TF website.

    It's basically exactly the same as the original 80's metal soundwave which i wish i still had

      I feel your pain. I had it too along with many of the others back in the day. Long broken, lost and disposed of :(

      I still have my original soundwave. He was the best transformer of all. Plus i have all five cassettes. Life can't get much better than this today.

    I got the original 80's one still with the little velociraptor guy, gave it to my nephew. got optimus etc too, damn they don't make toys like they used to.

    Soundwave! superior!

    My first and favourite transformer.

    p.s. Blaster was gay!
