Speaking of Soundwave... This eBay seller claims to have gotten an "advanced copy" of the upcoming MP-13 reissue that is coming out this October/November. The funny thing is that the seller does not offer any proof of this, they offer a sealed coin that came with the Asian/Hong Kong market version.

I don't know about you guys but I can wait until November to get one from from BBTS for $75-$81 less.

I was able to complete three sets.
I already sold two "single" Soundwaves on eBay.
So I have been lucky enough to get 5 Soundwaves. I mean, I have came a cross a few more Soundwaves, but the boxes were completely destroyed, so obviously they weren't worth buying.

Soundwave has always been my favorite as well and why I jumped hard on this the very second I saw them ...I also like that this version is made from.soundblasters mold.and.can take two tapes in the chamber...

6 Walmarts around the lower main land later... two complete sets. Ugh

As an aside, the stores that actually had product had enough to make probably 6 complete sets altogether.

No stores had both cassettes and Soundwave.

I'm just glad I was about getting mine as it was offered rather than after the fact and trying to get one after it went down

The cassettes are looking harder to get than soundwave, but got two complete sets. The Wal-mart just finished their mod update yesterday and had 5 on the shelf of the soundwaves, but no cassettes, got 4 of them at a second walmart that had no soundwaves left...weird.

@GanaSoth

What kind of profit are you making? My friend found a couple soundwaves so I had her pick 1 up for me. No cassettes so she is hitting another store to see if she can find those.

From what I can tell on completed eBay listings, it looks about $50 to $60 per complete set I think. Not sure how that translates when any shipping or selling fees are factored in.

@Terry88
Complete set as with cassettes?

Retail is $50 so selling on eBay people are losing money... Brilliant ha

Ya, as far as I can tell. The sets are selling for about ~$180 (converted to CDN). So ~$140 USD?

For me, I spent $70 for Soundwave and $30 for each cassette pack. So that's about $50 to $60 mark up on eBay.

Dunno if this is gonna last or not.

Retail is around $96 for 2 cassette sets and soundwave. Add in shipping and ebay fees and if you are selling for around $130 you make about $10. I see some dude sold soundwave for $57 shipped lol. Do people not understand basic economics?

Tried a couple of stores...no luck with the cassettes. Apparently the inventory tracker sucks. 15 units means 0 in store.

The masterpiece collections are tiny works of art.

@Hcanes Yes they are...I’m always amazed how they can match their “earth” form and their robot form so close to the cartoon. The attention to detail is top notch.

Took the time to scan the shelf label for these. It shows what new stock is in the system and date of arrival. My store shows 6 fresh units of soundwave and more tapes headed my way the 28th of this month ...should be consistent for any store that sold out already Now it will be interesting to see how many can refill or if restock supply holds up

You are operating from the assumption everyone has the same cost level as you do....that isn't the case....by example...wal mart employees who have a company green card get ten percent off all non food items.

After looking for these for about a week my son finally found the third item and finally has a complete set. That’s a lot of legwork.
