    Seems a logical retool to me! anyone agree?

    The opening chest panel and shoulder canon would make it a strong contender!

    We already know it's being retooled as Reflector.

    Hmmm, it would make sense, Cybertronian Soundwave was awesome but they have crammed different versions of multiple characters out before.

    Hoping they use it still as Reflector and maybe a Soundwave retool down the road, with a pet that would work with him.

    Yeah I think that could work....it would be better than just having a cybertonian version.

    It could work, especially if they retooled the chestwindow, gun (maybe to let it be a radar dish with deployable battery gun instead of lights) and maybe give him wheels instead of those treads. But the limbs are a bit too spindly for it to really work, IMO.

    That's asking for a bit much from a retool.

    Wut? It could work, but it can't?

    Also, if you're going to remold the figure so it'll have four wheels, then you might as well just build a new mold.

    I think it would work beautifully, but I don't think we'll see it...

    ...although Perceptor's head is pretty close to Animated Reflector anyway...maybe there's some confusion and Reflector is a planned straight repaint while a new head is also coming?

    Honestly I think if they just retooled the Chest and head, perhaps the Dials too, it'd look great. Nothing more than what they're retooling on something like Wheeljack.

    Agreed with Wollstone: get WFC Soundwave. Someone asking for a Perceptor retool as Soundwave should theoretically not have a problem with WFC Soundwave.

    I'd rather they put that time and energy into developing the voice memo recorder Soundwave.

    Which makes me wonder why we've seen neither hide nor hair of him by now. Even Thundercracker has been revealed before him.

    Even if it could work, Soundwave deserves his own mould. Let that then be repainted into Soundblaster. He is far too iconic to be a repaint. Alternitivly they could strip the electronics out of Music Label Soundwave and bung him in RTS packaging (what with us UK folk being denied all but the first 2 generations waves!)

    I don't understand this reasoning - if the mold evokes Soundwave's character, who cares if it also evokes another character and is used as such?
