Check your Siege Soundwave before you leave the store

Postby Rextheman » Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:29 pm

Okay, just to share my (and my mates) sad story of recent Siege line purchase.

I believe most of you guys already noticed wave 2 of Siege line randomly appeared in local shops and some lucky guys probably already bought.

I have spent last week shop around - Online order with Toyco, check all my local Farmers, Kmart, The warehouse etc....

I had zero problems with all others, wave1/wave2 from minicon team, target master and all other D/V/L class figures but the Soundwave had been a nightmare....

I'm not even joking, including myself, we have had in total 5 Soundwaves been found with issue from sealed box....by far the issue we have found were:
1) Missing weapen(s) - We had 1 missing both guns, and another one missing the grey colour gun.
2) Missing parts from weapon - The blue gun missing front cover (where you connects with the grey gun).
3) Leg part misplaced (The cover on the side of both legs)
4) Damaged parts (leg) - The foldable cover on the back side of leg was damaged out of box.

And I have had 3 of them, with issue 2, 3, 4....the worst part was each time when I returned to the shop trying to get a replacement, there's none left, I had to have a refund and hunt for other locations....

And today I finally found 1 from a warehouse branch, I opened the box right after I paid for it, found both guns were there, no leg was with side parts, then I thought I finally got a proper one and went back home....

When I tried to play with it tonight, I have realized I wasn't careful enough when I was checking, it had issue 2 & 4....seriously I am not joking....I was like "I had enough of this piece of shxt" and drove back to one of nearby warehouse at 9:30pm, return the bloody Soundwave and used the credit for few bags of cat food and litter......

I don't feel like that I could possibly get a Soundwave with no issue, probably will try to buy off Amazon when they have it back in stock or maybe wait for a complete second hand from someone...I fucking hate it!

I might suggest whoever lucky enough to see a Soundware in the shop and going to buy it that check the item carefully (probably transform once) before you walk out, this may save you a drive and some time lol....

Alright good everyone, fxxk Soundwave.

I guess this is the reason I could only find Starscream. Could be a bad batch, the online reviewers don't seem to have these issues. Hope the Soundblaster repaint isn't the same...

Hey! Hate the game, not the (tape) playa.

Out of curiosity, where did you get your Soundwave(s) from?

Warehouse in Auckland have small stock just arrived this week ($47)
Some Kmart may have it, very low chance (no price scanned in Kmart's system, their staff sold me one for $39 based on Mov 6 figures price but was with issue and I returned it).
Toyco just restocked them this week but thir special ends, now it is $55.
Also I have found on Trade Me there's a company called toyslo3r have them now for $46.

Oh yip, but where did you get your faulty ones from?

I received mine from Toyco yesterday and it is perfect.

I bought one from Toyco yesterday and it has 2 right hand missile pod panels covering the front in spaceship mode instead of a right and left. Impossible to tell in package.

My faulty ones were pretty much from EVERYWHERE -

1x Toyco
2x Warehouse
1x Kmark

I finally got a perfect one (not even with loose shoulder) from warehouse in Albany.

And sad story is today I have found they started some toy sale that you can buy 1 get 1 for half price :-(

I feel pretty bad lol....
