    Gotta go with Chromedome on this one. Between the TRU reissue of G1 Soundwave and the Music Label mp3 player, we've already got two excellent options for him to go on the ol' Classics/Universe shelf. Not only that, but the original Soundwave toy is pretty dang good even by modern standards, and so there isn't a whole heck of a lot to improve upon without making an arbitrary alt mode change.

    Besides, it would be awesome to see the Headmaster gimmick get the Classics/Universe treatment!

    Those are my thoughts. Music Label Soundwave with reprolabels upgrades is perfect for Classics.

    My gut reaction is to vote for Soundwave, but since he's going to be getting a toy in the Generations line based off of his WfC design (which will work for a Classics Soundwave), I'm going to vote for Chromedome. A modern take on the headmaster gimmick would be interesting to see, and a new Chromedome figure could be a good base for some cool repaints/retools.

    I voted for Chromedome as well. For the sole reason that we've gotten so many Soundwaves in the recent years, most if not all of which can be used for a Classics Soundwave, but there isn't anything that passes for a Chromedome.

    I'm voting for soundwave mainly because if they make a generation soundwave it will probably come with a Laserbeak. I want an updated Laserbeak !!!!!!!

    Soundwave has been done to death. If Chromedome had the headmaster gimmick he would be a much better toy.

    Chromodome for me. Lots of options out there for a Classics Soundwave and I fear if Hasbro does make a Classics SW it would suck, at worst a remold of Uni. Ironhide like the Shattered Glass version

    Soundwave. I realize the original's good, but the bottom line is that all the reissues have been in the $50-$80 price range, and the Music Label one's another line entirely. I want a Classics-style Soundwave with the matching aesthetic of the line and at least Rumble and Laserbeak (since Hound came with Ravage).

    Soundwave beats most characters IMO, especially one I had to look up to remember.

    I think Music Label Soundwave fits perfectly with Classics.

    That said I voted Soundwave anyway because I could care less about Chromedome...sorry LOL

    Might just be the toughest vote for me. Soundwave was probably one of my first and definetly my favorite Transformer. And there are a lot of options for SW currently. Chromedome would be a change of pace with the headmaster gimmick. But can Hasbro do it well at the deluxe price point? Hmmm. Soundwave it is.

    Chromedome for sure. That guy like many of the other toys on this list, has never received a decent toy. Has anyone ever owned a G1 Chromedome? I have and its bad... real bad. I hope Chromedome can win out some how because soundwave has been done to death. Tons of reissues and a great MP3 player.
