I think it may have been a while since Tomopop discussed the latest Transformers Masterpiece figures. Yes, I'm as surprised as anybody. I could've sworn something was said. At any rate, since then we've seen uncolored photos when Soundwave was listed on Amazon.jp then more recently we saw him in color on Seibertron.com and now, finally, he's available for preorder in places other than BBTS (which had opened preorders in late May because, well, it's BBTS).
Soundwave comes with Laserbeak but, as I understand it, supposedly Buzz Saw, Ravage, and Rumble/Frenzy will be available down the road (sold separately?). Soundwave will also include a Megatron gun, an empty Energon cube, an alternate tape deck, and a cassette case. And, let me just say, I was in absolutely in love with Soundwave until I saw his price tag. I think I'll just be pining for this one from afar.
Rub the jump sign to reveal the shield preorder information for Soundwave and others.

If Soundwave is too awesome for your budget, you also have MP-12 and MP-12A MP-14 or, as friends call them, Sideswipe (Lambor?) and Red Alert. They're a bit more affordable. Plus apparently Toys "R" Us will be carrying a Masterpiece Thundercracker at some point (oh, how my shelf yearns for him ...), which Tomopop regular Emerje so kindly pointed out. It's currently unknown whether the Thundercracker will be using the MP-03 Seeker mold or if it will use the MP-11 Coronation Starscream mold. What we do know, however, is that there's a fairly good chance I'll be buying it either way.
So is there anything that all you Tomopals out there are excited for?
