    Hmm... satellite sounds kind of cool... especially if it has weapons on it and such. But a pickup truck? Bah... well, if it's got some big honking speakers and... yeah. I'll just wait and see, but so far this is the first news I'm not really stocked on. Not sure why either...

    Hmmm....interesting. The satellite I like since hes a communications/intelligence officer, but the pickup, I might have to reserve judgement until I see it. Hopefully Bay and team did him justice.

    The satellite mode was rumoured on the shootfortheedit forums months ago.

    But, a pick-up truck? Really? Very un-soundwaveish.

    So a semi-homage to Energon Shockblast's satelitte mode. But a pickup truck earthmode? Could work I guess, and it does meld well the little ATV-like vehicles we've seen that Ravage is rumored to be.

    Okay so I would not have guessed that the satilite rumor was true but a pick up truck?

    Yeah, I don't want to be Mr Negative........But a 'Pickup' or any automobile for that matter is a waste for Soundwave IMO.

    Still, people have to sell cars...

    That's the first I've heard about a Ravage alt. Better than a pile of crap under a tarp, which is about the only other thing I could imagine his minions changing into. :D

    As cool as both of these sound...LOL what good is a satellite mode? Being and orbiting box doesn't seem too useful :p  He might as well stay in robot mode and float around up there.

    Pick up? Well it will depend on his colors and robot mode then I guess, He'll probably end up green with flames.

    Damn, not a truck with speakers like the Animated version? Guess a truck isn't too much of a departure...

    ...however, it's not his alt mode that concerns me the most, it's his robot mode.
    I wonder if the character is even blue or is he just some random Bayformer that just got the honor of being Soundwave?

    (Waiting for the inevitable "He's not a tape deck" post. We all know it's coming shortly.)

    It's at least as useful as a Cybertronian street lamp.

    Sounds good to me, the beauty of Soundwave is that his character is all in the bot mode, so it's irrelevant what vehicle it is as long as he has the look of Soundwave in bot mode.

    I'm pretty sure people complained about Cybertron SW when they first saw him, and how can you call his vehicle mode 'retarded' when you
    HAVE
    NOT
    SEEN
    IT
    YET?

    Pickups can look very menacing depending on how big a model they decide to use.

    Reserving judgement till i see it. However if he indeed has both modes there must be some big sizeshifting in this movie. How the hell are they going to fit Soundwave into something the size of a car if he can also be something the size of a satellite?

    Aint satellites bigger than cars?

    I like the idea of him being a satellite. I have to admit a truck mode seems a bit off for an intelligence gatherer. I just figured he would have been some sort of military spy/ information gathering vehicle. I guess I'll have to see it before I can condemn it though.
