    To hell with it, I'm getting this as well. I like Soundwave. The grey is indeed disappointing, but I'll get used to it as long as the toy is fun.

    Not any worse than the grey used on ROTF DLX Soundwave. Only this time the toy has a real alt mode.

    I only have three Soundwave in my collection so, if he shows up in the UK, I'll probably pick him up. I really want the HA version, though.

    The grey is just like the DOTM Sideswipe's dull grey.

    This really is a no-win situation. Both the HA and the deluxe are so incredibly underwhelming. Pity, the design is great, and it's frustrating that it doesn't get the toy it deserves. :(

    Both toys seem to have their pros and cons. I like this guy (silver head > silver face, gun looks awesome, feet are better) but I don't know what's going on with the shoulders.

    Hasbro is really just phone it in with the DOTM figures. This just looks really cheap.

    I'd like to see some comparisons with other deluxes before making a call.

    The plastic is ugly, but I've accepted that as par for the course for DOTM. Maybe if it holds up otherwise, I'll wait for the rumored Soundblaster repaint...

    Yeah; botmode kibble clearly collapses somewhat, BUT that doesn't change the fact that the HA Soundwave seems more accurate to me. After all, he's SUPPOSED to have a beefed-up upper body.

    Heck - look at the Cybertronian mode toy from ROTF. Small legs, huge upper body.

    Given I'm starting to phase out movie stuff, it's a pass.

    Not sure if I should get it or wait for Prime Soundwave. Eh, might just get both.

    Seriously, what the fuck? Looks cheap as hell, doesn't look like a deluxe. They really gotta stop with these transformers that don't use their car parts to make up the body...did the design team for the first two movies toys die??? These DOTM toys are blowing harder ass. Hopes for a good Dino just went down the crapper.
