Chara Hobby RotF Soundwave: Black Version (UPDATED WITH BETTER PICS) ブラック サウンドウエーブ! Black Soundwave (or Soundblaster) is primarily black, surprisingly, along with red plastic, gold and silver paint, and translucent orange plastic. The red is more of a bright red than dark red, and is borderline pink on his arm "blades." The gold detailing is similar to that of the other RotF Soundwaves, with extra gold on the wrists. His chest "orbs" are translucent orange. His satellite and space cruiser modes are primarily black, and they're kind of bland due to a lack of paint apps; some gold paint on the back of the satellite panels would have been great. But then again, Soundwave's selling point is his robot mode. Here he is next to the original Soundwave: and G1 Colors Soundwave from the "Gathering at the Nemesis" set: And Machine Wars Soundwave : Out of the three RotF Soundwave decos, this one's definitely my favorite. He looks the best in robot mode; the black, red, and orange make him look pretty sinister, and the Soundblaster tribute is cool. While Chara Hobby Black Soundwave might be tough to find and expensive, it's worth the price for fans of Soundwave/Soundblaster or fans of the mold. This is one of my favorite exclusive toys that I own, and will definitely stand out in your display.
