    Makes sense, there will most likely be an Ironhide toy on the shelf when ROTF happens, So another Pickup might confuse parents.

    so it's sage to say our "TFW insider" is spreading misinformation or what?

    We've been fed for weeks info and rumors from a "reliable source" to only learn a major rumor called "false" by Robert Orci...

    Hmm...a pickup did sound a bit odd for Soundwave imo, so this is good news for me. Maybe a communications truck of some kind? As for the extremely loyal bot to Megs, sounds like Shockwave to me. Would be awesome to have him in the Movie, imo.

    I hope shockwave would be a copter and a gun turret like in the game. That toy would be awesome.


    oh wait, they said no triple changers... lame...

    Raven nailed it. Roberto specifically denied a pickup, so maybe he's a communications truck or some other truck.

    Besides, nobody can be right all of the time. I trust all the info I hear from our sources but let's face it, there have been times when we have heard something but plans have changed.

    The thing is, we would never report something we were not confident about. But even we slip up from time to time. However, we do not actively try to spread misinformation - there is nothing for us or for you to gain by doing that.

    I'm betting the ice cream truck is Soundwave; think about it. It does use sound to entice the kiddies....

    i'm thinkin' soundwave ends up going from a satellite to one of those NEST hummers actually... he's a recon kinda guy, so him going under cover and blending in with the NEST operation seems fitting. plus, it would solve the writer's problem of "what the hell are we gonna make soundwave transform into" by writing him into that part of the script. not to mention GMC's previous publicity of their H3 Hummer being in the movie. sounds probable to me...

    I'm glad Soundwave won't be a pick-up. It just didn't fit him well for an alt mode. One of those NEST hummers would be cool, though, and it would be easy for the filmmakers to hide that one of them is Soundwave by simply saying that they're all just regular human vehicles.

    i think everyone will understand this, but you guys really shouldnt say "confirmed" from an annonymous source....and allthough you guys might know his job title, you dont know him personally (im assuming)

    I imagine that the TFW staff knows who this insider is and has confirmed it - otherwise they would lose a lot of credibility in terms of frontpage news.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. Has everybody forgotten that G1 Cartoon Soundwave was a loyalist here?

    And that traditionally he's at least put on the facade of being a loyalist in the comics - as in he's loyal to whoever he sees will put him in the best position, but doesn't backstab to claw his way up the totem pole?

    (So - he would be loyal to Megatron until Megs got overthrown, whereupon he would be loyal to the new top dog if he thought that top dog would benefit him better)

    So 'The Fallen' well might not be the character then. Never made sense to me.

    Thank you!!! When I heard Soundwave was just going to be a pick up truck a little piece of my soul died.

    Oh and for all of you who thought the misinformation campaign was false, ha!
