Hasbro Masterpiece Soundwave and Acid Strom Coming July 2013
Jack - Wednesday, January 30, 2013


Thanks to OzFormers member Ultra Mackness and griffinwho has managed to get a little time with Hasbro's Austrialian representives who informed them Hasbo down-under are planning to release both a Masterpiece Soundwave as well as a Masterpiece Acid Strom that we assume will be a Seeker repaint. These figures are said to be be in stores around July of this year. Read on for the full details from OZformers below.

Ultra Mackness's Comments on Soundwave
Okay so to help me make a decision about whether I give Takara my cash for MP Soundwave, I decided to email Hasbro about whether there will be a Hasbro release of MPSW or not and just got this reply:

Hi Michael, I am sorry for the delay in responding. I have checked with a colleague who specializes in Transformers. He has confirmed that the Masterpiece Soundwave line will be sold in Australia through Toys-R-Us, but not until July 2013. They are expected to sell in Toys-R-Us from July to September. Kind regards, Hasbro Consumer Services

Griffin's Comments on Acid Storm
As mentioned in the Hasbro MP Soundwave topic (which is now confirmed to be coming out in mid-2013), I asked ToysRUs if any more Masterpiece toys are in their system, hoping it was Sideswipe.... but no, a different Masterpiece toy by Hasbro is coming to ToysRUs at the same time as Soundwave.....

Acid Storm.
A green Starscream redeco, to add to the Masterpiece seeker squadron.

Priced at AU$100, it is $20 more than Thundercracker... so could have a similar price increase in America.


Considering how many Masterpiece toys are coming out of Japan at the moment, I was not expecting Hasbro to release one that Japan hasn't done (yet).
Acid Storm was a classic-verse toy/character that didn't get released in Japan either, so maybe this MP toy is a Hasbro exclusive as well.


How do you like the MP Soundwave and Acid Storm coming your way?

Yeah, it's nice Hasbronis bringing MPs here, but they REALLY need to get the quantities up. I never saw MP Prime in stores. Everytime someone posted on this site that he was back up for sale on the TRU site, I'd miss it. One day a friend of mine sent me a message via Face Book saying he was... read more

From what I have learned and heard he is supposedly coming with all 5 Cassettes too! I will definitely be getting the US release as well.....given that I can ever find him...I think he'll be harder to find than MP OP. I am wondering if he will be packaged in Robot mode or in Alt mode? I h... read more

Good point. Hasbro's Soundwave is either going to be the same as Takara's, only with the yellow visor or in lighter, cartoon-like colors.

Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted some concept art from the early days of Transformers! How early, you may ask? In some cases, Diaclone early! The images are primarily of an early version of Metroplex who was of a much stockier, more Grandus-like build in this stage of development. Also, a base mode for Optimus Prime/Battle Convoy's cab, and an Autobot symbol carry case that would have turned into a base of its own! Keep reading to see the images!
Imaginarium Art have posted images of their soon to be released Transformers Soundwave statue set. That's right, set with multiple replacement limbs, and other accessories for Soundwave, Laserbeak, Ravage, and Rumble. Just when you thought statues could do no better, Imaginarium Art takes to 11! Read on to see the Soundwave preview images in the gallery.
