    Hey! I'm not sure if this is old news or not, but I noticed today that DOTM Deluxe Soundwave's instruction sheet shows a new head in a similar vein to Laserbeak and the Generations figures.

    Of course, with the movie line dead, I doubt it'll be going anywhere...

    Are there already pictures of it? If not, I'll give it a scan.

    Probably meant for Trilogy Soundwave, just like Que/Wheeljack's head retool. At this point, I care little about accuracy to what was on the big screen, I just want to be able to get these two for something reasonable. Luckily (I suppose), Canada is supposed to be still on board for the Trilogy toys.

    Nice catch! I just got the figure today and I checked it out.

    10 to 1 that's a Movie Blaster head. Wouldn't be surprised if we see it as filler in the TF4 toyline in a couple years.

    ^ Maybe later when I get a chance. These instruction photos are always in horrible resolution anyways.

    It looks very similar to Movie Jazz's head, except with longer and thicker antennae and a humongous, bulging visor with a break in the middle. Reminds me a lot of the G1 toy's head (which was used in the comic, but not the cartoon).

    Funny thing is, it looks like his chin is very long and narrow (think Prime Starscream), with little "mandibles" (cheekbones? mini speakers?) to either side of it.

    That's really sweet. Hope it shows up at retail at some point in the next decade

    Huh. I hadn't heard that Canada would be getting the rest of the Trilogy line as well.

    I spotted it on TFormers as I was reading about the DOTM line's cancellation being confirmed at Toy Fair, but I swear I saw the link posted on this site somewhere before.:inquisiti  Can't remember where.

    That, and I've seen Walmart put up their toy isle shelf layout things for March specifically mentioning more 'movie 3' stuff. No idea if this will actually come to pass though.

    DOTM Soundwave to originally have repaint with new head?

    My apologizes for the crappy photos (i am on vacation and don't have my good camera with me) and if this is old news.

    Got my DOTM Soundwave in the mail a few days ago and just noticed that the head pictured is different from Soundwave's head.

    The figure has only two head antenna/spikes, a visor that sticks out from the face (unlike soundwave's sunken-in visor) and a single chin spike instead of the figure's two.

    Anyone want to take a guess of what Soundwave was going to be repainted into? It isn't the Soundblaster homage we saw at SDCC...I actually think it looks a bit like Jazz's head

    Inferno was my first though due to antennas, but that is an "Autobot" name. Maybe he'll be called Fire Ant? They already did Quickstrike as Darksteel, so good possibility.

    I remember there were plans for a black repaint of Soundwave for the Movie Trilogy Line, but... it doesn't look like that's going to be happening, at least not in the US. Maybe Takara might come out with the Soundwave repaint, but... who can really say at this point?

    So if Dark Steel (a Decepticon) can be made from Sideswipe (an Autobot) why couldn't Inferno (an Autobot) be made from Soundwave (a Decepticon) then??

    This was posted a week or so back.

    The consensus there was that the head remold looked like Blaster (antennae, domed forehead, funny eye-slit thing, pointy nose guard).
