    Who do you use for your Laserbeak? Since I have Ravage and recently pre-ordered Rumble and Frenzy, I don't think I would be able to call my group complete without good ol' Beaky. Any suggestions as to which one to use with my WFC Soundwave?

    EDIT:: PIC REQUEST! anyone have any pictures of these guys too? especially WFC Soundwave with various Laserbeaks

    EDIT2:: also, how much do you think LB should be? hypothetically, with no weapons (i'd lose them anyway)

    Animated. He doesn't have the typical curvy, simplified Animated aesthetic, so he looks Laserbeaky enough. Plus he has the most awesome alt mode!

    I'd say you've got four choices for Laserbeak:

    Cybertron Laserbeak which came with Cybertron Soundwave
    Titanium Laserbeak which came with Titanium Soundwave
    Animated Laserbeak which came with Animated Soundwave
    and Real Gear Booster X-10

    For the record, if you want Buzzsaw, the only one of those four that was redecoed into Buzzsaw was Cybertron Laserbeak and that's with the exclusive Galaxy Force Sound Blaster.

    EDIT: Actually, I somewhat agree with CVprowl: G1 Laserbeak is one of those figures that fits OK with Classics though I wouldn't quite say the same for Ravage.

    Ditto. Although my Classic-stlye Soundwave is the music label (my WFC figs are off on their own).

    Not sure if this will help, I spray painted the red parts of an extra Real Gears gold for a "Classic" Buzzsaw. Old pic:

    That actually ooks pretty cool, I just might do that with my own, then have Laserbeak a different mold, cause I think I'm gonna end up going with G1 LB-never had him, plus I think the cassette mode is kinda fun, despite the fact that I've never actually seen a real one that small.

    I like Cybertron Laserbeak. he's small & articulated, and nothing fits inside music label Soundwave anyway. :)

    Me, too, but technically the red redeco from Universe Blaster. I still need to paint it.

    I want a decent Ravage, too. So far I just use Hound's.

    I don't even have a Soundwave, I just like the idea of the minions as individuals who happen to be small and animal-like.

    i never thought about using TFA LB with WFC Soundwave.

    since i don't really paint figs, i would leave mine as is, but i think that with just a little touch-up work, it could match WFC Soundwave even more.

    add to it that "boombox mode", you have a guitar and amp mode for those 2. that's a plus.

    If my camera was working, i'd take a pic of my G1 beak with Soundwave, but take my word that they look fine together.

    Sweet! So hopefully last question lol-how much would a G1 Laserbeak cost? lets say with no weapon bit, since i'd probably lose it eventually anyway.
