Product Details

Cassettes are coming back in a big way these days. Now you can join in on the retro renaissance with Takara Tomy' s Masterpiece Series MP13 Soundwave figure. The original G1 Soundwave toy is fondly remembered for its unique ability to transform into an awesome cassette player and back to sinister robotic form. Along with his microcassette allies—Ravage, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Ratbat, Rumble, Frenzy, Slugfest and Overkill—Soundwave was everyone’s favorite Decepticon spy and reconnaissance robot. Being lucky enough to own the figure made you the talk of the playground. Fast forward to today, and you have the ability to recapture those feelings and memories with the highly collectible Masterpiece MP13 Soundwave. With this figure, you get a much larger, modernized version of SoundWave that maintains a remarkable faithfulness to the original G1 toy you remember from the cartoon.


This Soundwave is an incredibly versatile figure, 8.5 inches tall in full robot mode, and has the ability to carry three of his microcassette companions at any time. At masterpiece scale, it’s larger than the G1 toy, but just as fantastic. Soundwave's microcassette minion Laserbeak is included with the masterpiece figure and can transform from bird and back to a microcassette or he can be displayed on Soundwave’s arm for that classic cartoon feel. 


Blast your enemies with the Concussion Blaster or hit them with Soundwave’s rocket launcher, both of which fit into into his back as if they were cassette batteries. Don’t forget that this figure also comes with his own clear Energon cube and a mini Megatron gun that fits right in his hand. All of these features—along with this figure’s beautiful sculpt, easy transformation, and attractive G1 color scheme—make the purchase of this masterpiece the next item for your collection or be sure to pick one up for a friend. They’re sure to provide that nostalgic spark while adding an attractie new figure to your collection.

A small part of me has died with anticipation

October 10, 2012


My one hope is that if you had the original G1 tapes, they would fit in his chest okay.

"SoundWave: superior"

This piece is just impressive. Every gimmick the character has ever possessed is included. A truly worthy testament to an icon that has been my favorite from birth (really; Transformers was the first show I ever saw) and still inspires my music

"Bout Time"

This is truely the one that everyone has been waiting for. This is sure to be one of the best in this line to date. Looks to be very impressive. Will pre-order this one before the price inflates to 3 Times what is listed for. I hope that Hasbro releases one as well.

The best MP since King Grimlock. Great color, nice tight joints. Laserbeak design/engineering is amazing, He's like a little jewel that you don't expect but he is amazing. My Soundwave has two scratches on the cassette door. How that happend i'll never know. Over all well worth the price.

"a perfect figure that was worth the wait."

The wait has finally ended. This figure is superior in almost every way. The the only problem I have found with him is the lack of all fingers being articulated. Other than that he is beyond perfect. Hopefully a third party company will start doing fully articulated hands for future MP figures.

"Delayed AGAIN!?!"

Takara has said late Feb, early March, late March, mid April, and now it's just delayed until Takara decides they want to fill the order. this is garbage Takara. just plain garbage

I finally received mine that I ordered in January. Well worth the wait. I am a little disappointed that it is not as heavy as Optimus or made of metal. It is made of plastic. I am extremely satisfied and it looks amazing.

"Still the best masterpiece to me"

I have the Hasbro and still wanted to get this version. I wasn't disappointed. Great quality all around, really hard to even nitpick anything. If you're going to get any masterpiece, you should get Soundwave.

"Thing of beauty"

Ive wanted this figure for a long time and im pleased with the figure. His joints seem kinda tight which scares me a bit and It doesn't seem like his legs can go backward or maybe I just haven't used enough force idk. I wish that the megatron gun could tab in somewhere as it doesn't hold in to well at least I haven't been able to yet, also I wish the fingers were all poseable so I'll probably get the addon for poseable hands if I can find a pair.

Been waiting to pick him up once he was back in stock again, and the wait was worth it. Great figure with a lot of nice accessories for a lot of posing options.
