    God I hope Soundwave can dock into Convoy. That would automatically make this the best series of TF's ever!! :D

    NOT SEEING A DISPLAY ON SOUNDWAVE. :mad 

    But he MUST have one...if all those buttons on front are functional, what would be the point of having track up and down buttons, if you can't see what you are switching between?

    This is just an early prototype. I'm sure much will change before final product.

    perhaps thats why the whiteish foam looking panel on the front is there, place holder for a screen?

    Also, Soundwave is definately on my buy list, to replace my broken MP3 player.
    wheres the headphone jack?

    I know it will NEVER happen, but I wish Hasbro would strip the MP3 functionality out of that Soundwave and release him here as a Classic.

    I just can't spend that kind of money on an MP3 player I wouldn't actually use.

    I sure hope so. I thought it would be pretty cool if it turned out that the whole front panel was a display that could display graphics and his faction symbol, maybe even make it programmable to a degree.

    THAT would be killer, but I doubt that will happen.

    Looking forward to the final paint scheme.

    The is easily the best Soundwave figure ever made. :3
    Plays songs = check
    Is G1 (except for the buttons) = check
    Better posability than the original G1 figure = check

    What more could ya ask for? :D

    I'm so glad I pre-ordered a Soundwave - that head-sculpt is fantastic! Puts the Titanium release to shame...

    I can live without the headphones though, they look daft ^^

    However, for the price point I doubt he'll have any display - I just don't see how they could do it for the money.

    Hopefully, Soundwave will be the size of Classics Megatron...

    Looking at both this picture and the last, I can't help but think that the legs below the knees should be rotated 180 degrees for a proper transformation. If you look at the back of the leg, it seems to have the same "knee" and shin indentation as the original Soundwave has on the front of his legs.

    Otherwise it looks awesome!

    That Soundwave is pure love.

    Are the legs mis-transformed (backwards) in that pic?
    It seems that the details are on the backside...

    For the price that we've seen, I suspect that he's not going to have a display. The up and down buttons are probably for volume. He’ll have the same functionality as the Ipod Shuffle.

    I can't wait to get MP3 player Soundwave.
    I am so happy that I pre-ordered him. I never thought about
    buying an MP3 player, but here I get all in one!

    "Classics" Soundwave looks slendiforous ~ hope they do detail in the chest plate a bit, love that he's got the proper weapons....

    a tad disspaointed Takara didn't pull out the chrome or at least the Silver paint on Movie Prime in the appropriate spots (gas tanks, grill, etc): this pic http://fantofan.jp/news/mag/dengekihobby/jun2007-1.jpg almost makes it look good, but then ya get this one: http://fantofan.jp/news/mag/dengekihobby/jun2007-2.jpg and you can see it's still a dumpily-proportioned kibbley mess.

    the head "gimmick" is hella cool though

    ghost mirage rules.

    Great pics of the movie stuff...really digging the Leader class Prime mold more after seeing those pics of it. Soundwave, while a cool idea, is an easy pass for me. I already have an iPod.

    If you go back and look at this pages from BBTS: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10696&mode=retail&picture=out

    it seems to show 2 different protos...one, which I thought was the newer one which is a little more rounded, and has the classic buttons and one which looks like what we're seeing in these pics. I've been hoping for the other one, but it looks like they're going a different direction. I'm glad he has his weapons though!
