The thing is though is that it's the soundblaster mold and not the soundwave mold. The difference being that the cassette area can hold 2 cassettes instead of one unlike the original.

Nice. Right up there with Jazz on the re-relase I most wanted. I may just try my luck at the B&M though.

I forgot to note, that's not an official picture I posted. I just googled for an image.

EDIT: You were right:

That's right my friends! The infamous G1 Soundwave is now available for pre-order for $29.99 at ToysRUs.com. It looks like he will be available just in time for Christmas later this year with a December release date. There are no official pictures available yet of the toy or packaging. The toy will be a Soundwave colored repaint of the Japanese exclusive Soundblaster toy which will be able to hold both of the cassettes which come packaged with Soundwave (Laserbeak and Ravage).

Not $38 worth of cool, for me, but still cool ;)

Makes me sad 'cause I sold my originals a while ago. Jazz, Megatron, Ape Face, Slag, and a few others. I wasn't even displaying them, and I wasn't working on getting more, so I figured others would be able to enjoy them more.

I had an old original Soundwave where my friend was playing with it and broke his head off by pushing the wrong way on it. I had another friend who broke the leg off my Grimlock, and yet another who lost the wing to my Starscream.

My friends sucked.

Thanks OP, in for one. Now if they'd only reprint Shockwave, Omega Supreme, Jetfire, Fort Max, and Trypticon. But we know that Jetfire can't happen because of the copyright issues with Robotech robots and Fort Max failed some safety tests and is too big (which is why Trypticon won't happen either) which really pisses me off. If you're buying a toys thats 2 feet tall for anyone under 10, then your kid deserves to get hurt.

I haven't been able to follow TFs that much for the past two or three years but I still dig the old stuff.

Transformers have been 'back' for years. I buy them all the time.
But Soundwave had a funny voice. It was (ugh) Wheelie who would rhyme.

Unicron is just okay, so big and orange and spiky.
Safety orange makes me gag -- as a color, me no likey.

Transformer Classics are now released; these I cannot wait to buy.

I think I'm gonna get it just for Laserbeak and Ravage, who gives a shit about Soundwave.

Well, the Optimus Prime TRU reissue sold for around $40 if I remember, and now goes for $90+ on eBay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/...em=230034434231

Since Soundwave is one of the more sought-after G1 Transformers, I wouldn't be surprised if it will get up there too. I'll probably get one to open and one to keep sealed up.

Will I be able to buy this in the local stores?

Toys R Us will have them in-store, but you will need to stay on top of it when they come out because they will probably go pretty fast. I think when I got my Optimus G1 reissue it was the last one left on the shelf. A lot of the other G1 reissues sat around forever though, and eventually got discounted deeply. I guess it just depends on if they make enough of these to meet the demand.

40 bucks was pretty much the price of these things when they were release back in the 80's

So last night I was watching Transformers the movie and remembered that I still had not got this. I went to buy it and saw that it had 10 bucks off if you use Google to Pay.

But it was really late so I said I would order it in the morning. And now that I visit the page it's Back ordered. I ordered one anyway and hope to get one when the come back in stock.

Oh and you can find pics of it here:

http://www.tfw2005.c...ad.php?t=115386

It does look like it's the Soundblaster version that can hold 2 cassets.
