    Same here. Blaster is a lazy and pointless repaint, but Soundwave is a great figure.

    I got the japanese version (Galaxy Force) and he's a cool as hell figure. The chrome is nice.

    He's a cool figure, but I don't like his transformation too much. The poseability in the legs seems a bit odd, too.

    Hate him? Hardly. But he's far from the top of my Cybertron / Galaxy Force favourites list. (His repaint Soundblaster is directly ahead of him in my book - the black looks very cool!)

    It's just my opinion, but I don't like the bomber mode at all, the transformation is way too overcomplicated, and the robot mode's massive kibble and knock knees absolutely kill any poseability.

    I hate it because of the arm kibble. Even after modding it so I could remove the arm kibble, I still don't like it that much. It's alright, but overall it just doesn't appeal to me.

    That said, I LOVE the Legends version. Go figure.

    I didn't know people disliked him. I like the figure. The only thing I hate are his legs.

    I personally love C soundwave. Hell, I like the Blaster repaint just as much if not more than soundwave.

    Why do people love the soundwave version, but despise the blaster version?
    Yeah, It's not very G1ish, but I personally like him.

    It's not very good as $19.99 toy. But it's pretty good since it came free with the purchase of laserbeak.

    I actually liked what they did with the Blaster repaint, maybe a new head would have been appropriate but still cool in my book.

    I do like this mold overall though, maybe not love, but I do like him and own every incarnation of the mold. I just wish they fixed his leg's though as well as the alignment issues.

    Ditto. I had to customize my Blaster as I've never owned Soundwave, but I think the mould is pretty cool.

    I love my Cybertron 'Wave. Only thing is his arms and arm kibble is a little floppy.

    Transformation is hard as shit, though.

    Cybertron Soundwave gets hate because we WANT to love him.

    In concept? He's BRILLIANT. Soundwave as a F-117 Stealth fighter, with interchangeable bombs for his gun, his shoulder weapon, and lazerbeak. Opening chest that homages the original, but isn't slavishly linked to the whole 'tape deck' idea.

    The problem? He's just full of small flaws that, when combined make it tough to love him. The arm kibble is poorly handled, and constantly gets in the way. The legs are... bad. And the wings... they make you wish you could fold them away somehow.

    His chest and head, taken alone, look TERRIFIC, but if you zoom out...

    He was so close to what could have been the ideal update to Soundwave. He just... didn't get enough love.
