    That's not what they meant. In G1, Frenzy was one of Soundwave's tapes that he would eject. Not a cousin in a literal sense, more metaphorically.

    Frenzy from G1:

    remember what prime says to megatron at the end? they're all related.
    anyway im pretty sure that Frenzy was just hitching a ride w/ Barricade.

    I don't think he meant it literally like in the game. I think it was like, Brother robot or something.

    Frenzy was called a cousin of Soundwave because Bay didn't want to put Soundwave in the movie if he couldn't do him justice, so Frenzy was used as a Soundwave homage.

    Aren't we all related in some way?


    In fact, I bet I'm related to ET in some weird, twisted, disgusting way

    You know what's funny, and what the writers & Bay seriously underestimated? There are a TON of people out there - people who don't buy the toys or read TF sites but absolutely remember "the old cartoon" - that think Frenzy *was* Soundwave. Obviously we know that's not the case, but as far as many casual fans are concerned, the Transformer who turns into a tape/CD deck must be Soundwave. I've literally even gotten into arguements about it.

    But to be fair, you can't really blame them since Frenzy's name is never actually said or appears as subtitle text - he's just kind of there (just like Scorponok). So that said, I think a lot of people will be shouting "WTF?" when/if Soundwave shows up in the sequel since they think he was already in the first movie :)  The same thing is going to happen if the real Devastator shows up in TF2 since a lot of those same casual fans who clearly remember "the green Devastator guys" are already wondering why he was a single bot tank in Part 1... something that could have been remedied with the DVD, but we all know how that went.

    Just thought it was funny & worth mentioning - no bitchy tirades or anything :)

    Bay stated in the special features that the character that turned out named Frenzy in the movie was originally going to be Soundwave. However, they decided that the form didn't suit or provide the respect that Soundwave deserved so hence the bot became Frenzy.

    Is Soundwave related to Barricade? ummm, I don't think so because you could compare Blackout and Scorponok in the same manner. I just think Bay and his writers liked how Soundwave released other robots from himself in the G1 series, and just wanted to somehow incorporate that into the movie as a kinda *wink* *wink* ;)  to us the fans.
