How much is Jem these days? Even though it's a Hasbro product I wonder how much it will cost compared to Tranformers? I must agree with you there, the Transformers prices are "Truly, Truly Outrageous!"

Re: G1 Soundwave, Gears and Warpath Released in Canada

I was lucky to get the Toys R us exclusive commemorative Soundwave back in the day. I wonder how it compares to the new G1 Reissue coming soon?

Bigger than Starscream and Prime, more parts and has Buzzsaw. I stand by what I said but NONE of these reissues are sensibly priced really, to be fair, hmmm.....maybe MAYBE the minibots

To me, Soundwave is worth it. Trailerless Prime? Not so much. I figure they'll charge $19 for the pairs of cassettes when they're released.

Re: G1 Soundwave, Gears and Warpath Released in Canada

the target buyer for this product does not care if it costs 6.97, 69.97 or 697.00. Okay maybe not 700.00

Re: G1 Soundwave, Gears and Warpath Released in Canada

Other than minibots, Iíve yet to pay full price for any of these.

If the price doesnít suite, just give it a couple months.

Yeah, I got that back in the day, too. I'm not 100% sure but I believe it was $40-$50, so with inflation, I don't think it's too-too off. But the at around the same time a Optimus with the trailer was about that price too. I got one for $35 on sale, so I don't think the Optimus is a great buy in terms of pricing.

All G1 reissue Soundwaves (with single cassette chamber except for one Hasbro reissue version) are based on the Japanese G1 Soundblaster mold, so this will be the same. This is different than the original G1 Soundwave mold in a few spots.

The one you have includes Ravage, too, but it has Laserbeak instead of Buzzsaw. Two cassettes > one... so yours is a better deal? But I supposed if you are craving for the G1 packaging then this Walmart one is better in this sense.

I have an original with an ok condition box and various reissues I will pass. But I may get the cassettes in G1 like card backs, though, whenever they hit our shelves
