    So who all thinks that Soundwave will be repainted/remolded into Soundblaster? With in the show or just toy?

    I would think that Hasbro will just go with SW but Takara will do the repaint into SB.

    It's Hasbro. Everything will be repainted.

    I can see him being repainted at least once. Current rumor is that he's going to be repainted and given a new minion. Personally, I'd be perfectly fine with a straight up Soundblaster w/Buzzsaw repaint.

    If we get a Soundblaster I'll happily break my "only show character repaints" rule.

    Well, there is that listing that showed up in Wal-Mart's computers awhile ago (you know... the first time were heard about Blurr, Wasp, Skywarp and a few others getting toys) that had a listing for Electorstatic S. Alot of people have been figuring that it's going to be a Soundwave repaint and word from Botcon (or was it SDCC? ..think it might have been SDCC...) states that Soundwave will have another minion... so, combine the two and it's very very likely that Soundwave will be repainted. With the listed name though I seriously doubt that it will be anything more than most of the other Animated Deluxe repaints have been thus far... upgraded versions of the characters and not new characters.

    Having a new accessory like that is enough for me to buy him again.
    Although it'd help if his color scheme was different enough and he looked good.

    I'd be happy with a straight up Soundblaster/Buzzsaw, actually.

    I'm expecting that rumored new instrument for new Soundwave repaint to be Ravage as DJ turntable.

    That would be cool... though I remember someone saying something about Rumble & Frenzy as a drum set, but I'm pretty sure it was just fan speculation and not anything concrete from Hasbro.

    I think a keyboard alt mode would be easier for a new minion. It's flat like a cassette, which would also be a kind of nod to the G1.

    DJ Turntable also flat and square-ish like cassette... And! It can launch those discs at high velocity! Oh wait, are we talkin' about Movie Frenzy? :lol

    I think there is going to be a Blaster retool for Botcon. Just Because.

    A drum kit could work... sort of.

    The bass would have to be thin, maybe a bass two drums either side and cymbals on those drums. Then they could make the drums rotate so it can lie flat....

    Who it could become though i don't know.
