    Weird... it DOES look A BIT like Ani.Soundwave... much more detailed and somewhat movie-ish, the shoulders are very different. Why the hell would they make more Animated stuff? This has to be some kind of fan-made thing, right?

    I know the plush doll is fan made, but the car.. not sure. Maybe this is ROTF Soundwave's earth alt-mode? That'd be a crazy nod to the Animated series.

    That's definitely Ani Soundawave's altmode, but what's really interesting is that that's War For Cybertron Soundwave's robot mode on the bottom! More evidence that the game is getting toys...

    ^Agreed, that's Ani Soundwave's alt. mode but WfC's Robot mode. What's Hasbro planning.......

    I'm not sure of Animated Soundwave's alt mode works for the slightly more realistic look of War For Cybertron..but so far I'm not really complaining.

    This shows WfC toys are probably coming, and that Hasbro is continuing the RPM subline. Jippie!

    What it means to me is that the RPM line is continuing, perhaps beyond movie stuff.

    ... and that's kind of a pity. :(

    Why? Don't like them? Don't buy them.

    These kind of toys are hardly affecting Hasbro's budget to create 'real' Transformers, so you shouldn't have to worry about that. In the meantime, I'm sure these little buggers will make some kids very happy. :)

    This goes beyond a direct homage to Animated Soundwave enough to make me think somethings up. They're too similar.

    The fact that the vehicle mode is too Animated for WFC is also present.

    Hasbro has been having trouble coming up with a modern alt mode for Soundwave ever since the 80s ended. There just doesn't seem to be one that is as iconic as the tape deck + cassettes (a modern music player is possible, but thinking of how he would use his minions would be troublesome), and at the same time, they're also steering away from unneccesary mass-shifting.

    It's highly possible this is the official Earth mode for Soundwave in the new continuity - or maybe hir Earth mode is not decided yet because it doesn't pop up in fiction and they decided to roll with this one for the time being. :) 

    I agree that the car might be too 'Animated', but they gave it a slightly more realistic look. It's still a pimped up, tuned up little car that reflects music, though...in some way. :p 

    I wouldn't get your hopes up for some sort of Animated/WfC crossover, or huge Animated influences other than this...

    I love the RPMs. I just wish they weren't four dollars. They're just Hot Wheels cars, for goodness sake.

    That being said, if someone bought me a whole set, including this Soundwave, I wouldn't complain a bit! :)

    If WfC really is a prequel to the next series, this could very well be the Earth mode Soundwave for that series...
