The model itself in robot form stands approximately 9 inches high, and is made entirely of plastic. No die cast parts are included. The complexity of the model makes it a poor choice for young children or irresponsible adults, but the detail is the highest of any Soundwave model on the market, and as such could be considered the standard by which all others are measured. The index finger on both hands is articulated with two joints, and the other fingers are articulated with one. This allows Soundwave to "point" and be posed in a variety of ways, given the rest of his extensive articulation is taken into consideration.
The model includes Soundwave's blaster, a miniature Megatron in gun mode that the model can hold in either hand, an "energon cube" that mounts with a simple snap to the model's cassette door, and as an awesome bonus, also includes Laserbeak, the cassette tape that transforms into a bird, and looks very similar to how it did in the animated show. The cassette tape includes its own case as well. The cassette door on the model's chest opens and the tape can be stored inside. As another bonus, the rear wall of the cassette cavity can be pushed back to hold up to three separate cassettes, sold separately. Ravage, Rumble, Frenzy and Buzzsaw are all sized to fit and work with this model.
In portable cassette player mode, the model is very solid. Most attachments, such as the scanner piece, and the blaster, either fold down and store somewhere on the model, or attach firmly in an inconspicuous place to make the alternate mode look very clean and remove any worries about lost parts. The parts that do not attach (energon cube, megatron blaster, cassette case) should be stored where they won't be misplaced.
The only downside was the price. To pay this price, there should be substantial die-cast content, and as stated earlier, there is none. Be sure you are careful with this; it is not designed to withstand great wear and tear, and is best suited for serious adult collectors and enthusiasts. The Japanese text printed on the box and in the literature helped to reinforce the authenticity of the product. I'm very satisfied with the product overall. Great purchase for enthusiasts and collectors. Shop around for the best price.
In addition to being fully transformable, the figure has extremly generous joints so you can pose it in virtually any position. You can get it to look like the picture on the box or what ever else you can think of (mostly). I also have the Prowl, Bluestreak, Sideswipe, and Smokescreen from Takara and amazingly the quality is very consistent across all the figures. The paint job is fantastic and I've not noticed any blemishes. The quality of the plastic is very high, and overall Soundwave feels very sturdy. At $150 I think its a pretty good value for the price, though I won't pretend that its cheep.
I was also luck to have received this shipped in a box (i.e. the seller, not Amazon in this case, was good enough to use a shipping box) so the packaging is in great shape. I have to say that the packaging for this peice is also really great. The art on the front is fantastic and makes a good display peice on its own.
Overall I just can't recommend this one enough. After getting it and seeing the figure in person I went out and picked up a Megatron. Looking forward to seeing if they continue to hold up.
