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.

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.

TFCon Chicago is almost here, and quite a few companies are showing up to have fun! Among the unexpected publishers... are ThreeA, makers of the upcoming Premium Scale G1 Optimus Prime figure. They'll be bringing along a striking print by artist Ashley Wood that is based on the figure. This print will be limited to 45 pieces and they don't mention the price in the press release, so I wouldn't expect it to be cheap. Keep reading to see the image!
ComicBlitz, the “All You Can Eat” subscription service, announce a partnership with IDW Publishing, as a digital distributor for the premier comics publisher. Hundreds of comics and graphic novels will be rolling out over the next few months on the platform, starting today with over 125 issues of titles such as Transformers, GI Joe, Star Trek, My Little Pony, Dungeons & Dragons, Locke & Key, The Crow, and more!
In the continuation of one of the most amazing discoveries in our fandom, Transformers At The Moon has released the contents of another audio tape of previously unheard dialogue from the G1 cartoon. This installment covers all of More Than Meets The Eye part 2, with the new content running around five minutes in total. There aren't any fully new scenes discovered, but some are expanded quite a bit versus the TV broadcast. And once again we've put together stills from the aired episode the lend context to the various snippets of audio. Keep reading for that and the embedded video!
One again, Hallmark was showing off their upcoming holiday ornaments for the 2016 season with some nice reveals for Transformers Generation 1 fans.

The others are what appear to be mini-plush editions of Optimus Prime, Soundwave and Bumblebee. Look for these to show up in retail for the holidays at a price of $15,95 USD. Read on to see them all in the gallery.
Transformers@TheMoon has posted their final tape from the very first episode of The Transformers, "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1"! This one is a bit light on new material, but we do get more of voice director Wally Burr directing "body english" takes! This isn't the last of TF@TM's material, but they've finally reached the end of the first third of the 1984 premiere. Click through to listen!
