    So Fan Favorite SOUNDWAVE has made a steady comeback in the Transformers world, and each verision has a different alt mode, and over the years he has been:

    G1: A lamp post.... LOL.... and A Tape Deck
    Cybertron: A stealth fighter:
    Animated: A TRON style Scion XB
    ROTF: A satellite thing
    DOTM: A Mercedes.... (SERIOUSLY BAY???)
    WFC: An armored truck/cybertronain Boom box)
    Prime: A Predator UAV
    FOC: The same as WFC, (but with an added G1 homage alt mode easter egg)

    so as time goes on, Im sure Soundwave will get more new forms,

    So what do you guys hope he'll transform into next?

    I'm thinking he can either be an army comunnications truck or maybe go to how his alt mode was orginally going to be in the 2007 movie as a helicopter.

    In your retro listing of all of Soundwaves previous alt modes. you forgot to list a few.

    In Machine wars Soundwave was a tank

    In Generations 2,Soundwave was a Gobots sports car.

    In the Beast Mutants toy line,Soundwave Transformed into a Alligator & Bat.

    I like him as a satellite best. It fits with the whole "the eyes and ears of the Decepticon empire" theme he has going on...

    At this point I could care less. The modern versions of Soundwave are so far off of what the original character was he might as well have a completely different name.

    He'll probably end up a red Autobot car sooner or later...
    (Autobots sell better, apparently).

    Future versions of Soundwave that he hasn't yet had?

    -Armored communications van
    -Regular old "news" van
    -Giant communications vehicle-thing (Soundwave by ~CyRaptor on deviantART)
    -Dark blue hummer with some antennae/possibly satellite dish on the back

    Yeah, seriously. You know, because the entire purpose of his character in DotM was to go undercover in order to get closer to Sam? Dylan (billionaire who owns tons of fancy cars and resources) and the 'Cons (deceptive sunsuvbitches) need to spy on Sam, so Dylan and Soundwave team up. Give his prized new employee a new car, he's got plenty to spare. Subterfuge. Duplicity. Reconnaissance. Spying. Can't really steal Carly when you transform into a satellite. :p  I mean, it's also obviously a way to promote the Mercedes, I won't deny that, but it also makes sense.

    But also, this is cool. Though, I'd like to see him as an Earth satellite, if it were to happen.

    I don't see why that's a problem. Soundwave has always gone undercover whenever he can, usually by turning into a tape deck and planting himself in places. I don't see why turning into the car of someone he's spying on is any different. In fact, it was probably my favorite part of the movie.

    WFC/FOC is exactly the same as G1 Soundwave. Exactly.
    Animated Soundwave was very similar, but changed to fit into the Animated universe. He even still had Laserbeak and Ratbat,
    Prime Soundwave is, although mute, still the communications officer who is obsessively loyal to Megatron. Very Soundwave.

    you forgot SG soundwave being a van.

    really a spy satellite or perhaps a radar plane are best suited for him .... but! soundwave's alt mode isnt essential to his character in my opinion.

    So you wouldn't mind if he was a lion, or a motorcycle, or a toaster, or a crane?

    Except for how they're all clearly Soundwave.

    Just because he's different doesn't mean Soundwave isn't somehow a fitting name. I mean, they all pretty much match the core basis of the character. Visuals aside they're not far off at all. They all follow the tradition of being a sneakyand intelligent coordinator and infiltrator.

    Depends on if it made sense.

    Soundwave is observation and communication. If the alt mode fits the circumstances he'll use it.

    You know what would be awesome? If Soundwave was like a cameleon. That he doesn't have one altmod but that he can just take whatever he wants in order to blend into the background.

    They would never do it because you can't make toys out of that but it would be awesome.

    Ooh, so basically combining the concepts of TFP Makeshift, DotM Laserbeak and the typical Soundwave? I like.

    Forgot about that...also, I actually had crocodile, but then I remembered the BW Mutant, so I changed it to "lion".

    :eek: 

    Memory banks are malfunctioning, must be getting old.

    Like a mimic octopus on land?

    Anyway, I'm a personal fan of his Prime alt. Very fitting.
