    ...this posted in the news and rumors?

    soundwave was supposed to be Blackout, and then Frenzy, but the writers of the script felt they couldnt keep those characters true to soundwave with where the story was going, so the just decided to leave him out. he will be in the sequel.

    um, thats why u change him to a "low rider" sort of car with a HUGE sound system. booming speakers EVERYWHERE.

    they did change Megatron right....no one wanted a floating gun..

    how about a cybertronian jet, with some high tech cassettes...lol. i'm sure they have some good techno on cybertron.

    i really dont know what they would do with soundwave. but all i really want is for him to have that awesome voice. "constructicons inferior, soundwave superior"

    I'll be happy with Soundwave transforming into anything AS LONG AS the following 3 things are met:

    1) his voice somewhat resembles his original voice
    2) his head remains the same or at least an enhanced version of his head
    3) his chest plate remains the same, regardless of its purpose if any at all

    That's all I ask

    A. I would like him to have a similar voice
    B. He needs the shoulder Mic still or that would suck
    C. A car with a amazingly good system would NOT be lame it would be A-o-k
    D. Every other bot Inferior Soundwave superior

    I really don't see Soundwave working at all without drastic changes that would piss off all the fans so it's pointless.

    i think they should have him be a car, jet, or w/e...but have laserbeak somewhere in there. he could just be like scorponok; not really a transformer, but a pet that does stuff. in this case, laserbeak would be a spy.

    and i guess there doesnt need to be blaster. but since optimus and megatron were brothers, why not have soundwave and blaster be brothers as well? haha. sorry, i have really bad ideas.

    I thought the largest reason was the mass shifting thing. The major reason why Megs couldn't be a gun as well.

    But after watching the movie, (Allspark mass shifted), this was bull crap.

    There's an old topic in the art forums featuring an incredible movie Soundwave design based on a Balkan surveillance vehicle with Ravage being the spare tire and laser beak coming from another of the trucks components. It is *the* single best concept for a movie Soundwave I personally have seen to date and would have no problems with him looking like that art.

    But Soundwave as a car with big speakers....that's just silly imo. Maybe Blaster could do that, but Soundwave was always one to blend in and having a giant stereo system doesn't help that at all.

    Also, on topic:

    Allspark=ancient alien artifact that even the Transformers don't fully understand, and is probably mostly energy and not matter. It's allowed to do wiered things.

    "The AllSpark is raw power" - Ratchet.
    That's my explanation as to how it can mass shift.

    People don't seem to understand what the Allspark and mass-shifting are and why it's not mass shifting.

    he should be some armored car or servalience van. and the others jump into him and jack into a port and transfer information. leaving it so the cassettes could be anything and so could soundwave. just having them in the movie would own.

    we had a big talk about maybe turning him into a mp3 player and his cassettes would be SD cards. a sportscar with a system would be cool. the trunk could open and the speakers could be his cassettes.

    thers so many possiblilities for soundwave.




    p.s
    screw Blaster he was a Soundwave ripoff. mixed with a little Jazz he sould be a dump truck
