Well, technically it's the 1987 Soundblaster version of the mold (which has last been reissued by Takara last year). Hasbro still had to safety-test the mold for a US release, decide for the paint masks, set up the paint masks, design the packaging and whatnot. Y'know, it's not like they kept the assembly line ready for another run of Soundwave for over 20 years.

Besides, it's not certain whether Soundwave was ever actually supposed to come out this year. TRU's website is not really reliable. "Swerve" anyone?
