    Being that soundwave is my favorite and maybe my favorite tf overall, I was really hoping that HA soundwave would be great but after seeing the pics of him, I was disappointed a lot. The car mode looked pretty good and laserbeak too but the robot mode just looks... ugh. The arms look huge and the legs look weird. I guess I just gotta wait for more pics but for now, I'm getting the deluxe.

    People are happy about HA Soundwave? Have you *looked* at the thing?

    Since this morning I'm wondering if people have actually looked at the pictures of the HA Soundwave they all seemingly adore.

    I've spent minutes looking at both HA and the Deluxe. Did any of you notice the things that pass off as legs on the HA? It appears that the entire car ends up on the arms of the figure and two stubs with a tripod each end up as the legs.

    The thing has an amazing car mode but unless the robot mode is GROSSLY mistransformed [like HA Sideswipe years back] I don't see how this is the best rendition of Soundwave. Kickass lazerbeak, kickass car, but unfortunate robot mode.

    The deluxe looks much, much better proportioned save for that oversized radar dish on a mercedes.

    Any thoughts on the matter?

    It's probably best to wait for proper pictures and videos. There was a lot hidden by crappy Hasbro photo editing, possible mistransformation and picture quality (the white hides a lot of details, possibly in his legs)

    The HA line has been great so far and I doubt Soundwave will be the exception. Hope he gets to local stores.

    Meh. Accuracy aside, I enjoy the slightly inhuman aspects of the movie-verse Decepticons. The RotF Deluxe also had pretty small legs, and burly arms, so it works for me.

    I just like that it comes with movie accurate scale of Laserbeak.

    i have to agree that what we saw at the panel was underwhelming at best. he seriously has a case of masterpeice megatron legs and those arms were enough to make Jorgen Von Strangle jealous. However, im patiently holding out hope it will turn out ok. as always, well have to wait and see.

    You're right.... HA Soundwave's legs actually do look like crap.

    Oh, and on the topic of DLX Soundwave's Cannon, it looks like a good stand in for Jazz's Crescent Cannon. You know, if one ever gets made.

    "I DO NOT LIKE THIS THING. Therefore everyone else who has looked at it obviously hasn't looked at it properly. Clearly I am the only one here with any sense of taste."

    Sorry, that's all I got from the OP.

    I'm with Knightdramon on this one. The legs are hideous.

    I'm not too impressed with the deluxe one, either. I guess I'll just be keeping my ROTF one.

    yeah, i actually thought the Legion looked best of the 3 Soundwaves, and i can't stand Cyberverse for the most part. soo, yeah, i was pretty let down.

    (that said, even though i'm not a huge fan of the design, TFP Soundwave looks A_M_A_Z_I_N_G...)

    I agree OP, it looks fugly. I don't see those legs providing much support for the weight of the upper body. Even looking past the legs, it's just not a good design. Especially for a HA figure. The majority are going to buy it because it's called Soundwave. Name the figure Steve and nobody's buying it. That Laserbeak is awesome though.

    I'm reserving judgement.

    From what I can see, I like the look of the Deluxe version, but the HA version may be suffering from "HA Barricade" syndrome - It looked pretty crap when they showed it at SDCC, but the figure itself was amazing once we saw it transformed properly with proper perspective.

    I have.

    And it looks fucking awesome. Feet are kinda weird, but other than thet he's absolutely perfect. Plus Laserbeak looks really accurate.
