Default Masterpiece Soundwave to be released in Australia in July

Could be early days yet but this is the response I got earlier today from Hasbro when I emailed them my query last week:

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

Keep in mind that this was an email from Hasbro, not Toys r Us. I've emailed them (Hasbro) a number of times in the last few years and they have always told me the truth regarding releases in Australia. The optimist in me is keeping fingers crossed that at worst they may have slipped up and maybe told me something that will be revealed in the near future.

The timing sounds about right for a Hasbro version. And it would have been really surprising if there wasn't a Hasbro version.

maybe this is too soon i mean people are still buying the takara version hasbro would lose a lot of money if they announced it now and it may piss of a lot of alot of people who bought it if it turns out it's equal or even better to the takara version.

Could we change the thread title to "in July" Stop us running to the stores today.

Actually running to the stores now and camping out is probably a good idea given how the Primes sold out so quickly.

Certainly interesting news indeed, should it actually come to pass.

I am perfectly content with the Takara Masterpiece that I've purchased, but if I see one of these Hasbro Toys on shelf locally & for a reasonable price?; I may just pick it up.

Cheers Macky for doing the leg-work on this one dude.
