Soundblaster was available again as part of TakaraTomy's Transformers Encore series of reissues. This release includes two new cassette partners: Enemy and Wingthing.
For this release Soundblaster features additional silver paint on his face plate and sides of his head, red metallic eyes instead of yellow, and the removal of the silver paint on his crest in an effort for animation accuracy. In addition he has a large Decepticon logo tampographed on his chest. All the label stickers from the previous releases of Soundblaster have been reproduced via tampographs as well, with the exception of the stickers for his weapons which come preapplied. The coloration of the blue labels has also been altered to replace some of the blue (but not all) with black.
Figure comes complete, still sealed in the box. The box does show some signs of wear from storage/age, but the figures are fine. Since the box is still sealed all the accessories and paperwork are included, as well as both exclusive cassette redecos, Enemy & Wingthing, which were only available in this box set.
