    Seeing those pics of Soundwave from the toy show has made me even more excited to see how he turns out in the show. In G1, next to Shockwave, he had to have been one of Megatron's most loyal followers. His alt mode resembles the xB, the kind of car that flips the bird to all other drivers on the road. Be it seen as cool or fugly, it definitely has its own sense of style has this aura about it... like it could care less whether people like it or not.

    His bot mode is pure fanservice as far as I'm concerned. I love the music motif that they have going on, especially how they managed to preserve the tape deck portions on his chest. I absolutely love how blocky he looks - Very true to his G1 counterpart. Lastly, as opposed to giving him a transforming iPod or Sirius/XM/HD radio, they give him a guitar! A freaking guitar! How cool is that?! Very fitting for Laserbeak. Someone needs to create an amp for this guy and have it tranform into Rumble.

    Next to the Dinobots, Soundwave is definitely on my list of must-haves. Enough ranting for now. What do you guys think about him?

    one of the coolest animation toys, simple but effective. I like the slight gorilla arms look, and an interesting update for microman (from which the original toy originated) fans too.

    And yeah, I think he looks great. Was real glad to see a more finished version of the figure, finally. LOVE the homages the mold has as well.

    lol, yeah that's what I meant :D 

    I'd also like to see them bring back Ravage too. Maybe as another guitar. Because that's just how Soundwave rolls.

    While he's not on the top of my list, he is pretty cool looking. Hopefully the speculation that the next episode will center around him is true. It's going to be interesting to see a Decepticon that wasn't shown on Megatron's war ship in the first episode.

    I had an idea ravage could be a voyager that turned into drums.

    I can't wait to see how they make him sound. It'll probably hold true to G1. Blackarachnia, Starscream sound similar enough so why not? I think they should make sound a little more chrasimatic though. ;) 

    I was thinking of drums and a keyboard, but I can't picture Soundwave jamming on those. I think all he really needs are a couple of guitars and a nice amp.

    Rumble and Frenzy could be drums.

    I'm not all 'OMG SOUNDWAVE I MUST HAVE THE TOY!!!1!', but I do think that the original was pretty cool. I like how they've given him a new alt mode but haven't really changed his robot mode.

    Oh yes, and guitar Lazerbeak is win and the person who thought of that should get an award.

    Eh...I don't think BA sounded much like her BW self at all. BW BA sounded rather asian whereas Animated BA gives off a very...black vibe, or at least that of a black woman trying to sound asian. *shrug*

    When I saw Soundwave I was going crazy. It;s definitly the coolest Animated toy I've seen so far. I hope they'll make a leader off of him, with some cool sound phrases. So far I'm going to pick up at least 5 deluxe versions fo this guy. Seeing all those new Animated toys really makes the wait longer and longer.

    According to the guy over @ Allspark who already saw the Soundwave episode, he does indeed sound similar (but not exactly the same) as he did in G1. Apparently it's as close as what they did with Animated Grimlock sounding like G1 Grimlock - similar but slightly different.

    Ebay:
    It's a Soundwave re-imagining whose backpack is a giant set of speakers, has speakerwheels on his shoulders, Kamina shades, and an electric guitar that transforms into Laserbeak.

    It will take a -hell of a lot- for me to 'meh' at this. ;)
