    So, I wanna get some opinions on whether or not I should hold off on ROTF Soundwave. Not for a premium release, but for a possible voyager or maybe Earth mode? (Though from what I've read the latter may not even be in the works)

    I'm getting him, and any other Soundwaves that come out as well. Can't have enough Soundwave.

    There are no rumors circulating whatsoever about a new Soundwave yet, and no evidence that there will be one. It stands to reason that there may be another one down the line, but with the sheer amount of product we've seen for ROTF already, it probably won't be until 2010 or beyond. And like Bonecrusher in the original movie who was only released as a crappy deluxe and never a Premium, there's a good possibility there won't ever be a better Soundwave.

    I would just buy this one and be done with it.

    I wouldn't get it because it is called soundwave.

    I don't think he's going to get an Earth mode, at least not for this movie.

    People are going to be very disappointed when all Soundwave does is hang around in space..but that's what I fear he will do.

    Pick him up and leave him in package in case premiums are announces. Sell it at Christmas for a huge profit and buy premi when/if he comes out.

    I'd wait to buy any of them until you see the movie. You might hate the character or barely see him.

    GET HIM!!!!!

    I doubt we'll see a premium line this time around.
    50/50 shot he'll even get an earth mode.
    Megs isn't.
    Fallen apparently isn't.
    This soundwave is a must.
    Get him! Enjoy him!

    I'm getting him. He's a new Soundwave fig, those are few and far between nowadays for such a popular character.


    He doesn't get an Earth mode this movie, supposedly, so I wouldn't hold out for one.

    I don't really like the blue rubber, nor his two alt modes. He looks meh to me, and I love Soundwave. Don't know if I will get him.

    He's one of the few figures I'm getting off the bat, as opposed to waiting a bit to see what other paintjobs are in the pipeline for a particular figure.

    Lol, yes because the 2007 movie toys sold SOOO well on the secondary market. That's why people have been having trouble getting rid of them for a year now.


    And you should get him, it's Soundwave. That's all the reason needed.

    Yeah thats what I think too.

    The preview deluxe is the only piece of merchandise we've seen of him thus far.

    woah...someone's using logical thinking and reasoning...must be a Bay hater...where's the tar and feathers?

    just kidding :thumb 

    anyway, i say buy him dude...worst case situation, you buy him, have him for awhile, a better version comes out, and you sell him...its win/win...

    If you need to ask, don't get him.

    I got him months ago and couldn't be happier about it. Didn't think twice about it.

    And yes, Soundwave WILL have an Earth mode, he'll do more than just "float around shooting out kitties." It's just one of those things that they've thankfully managed to keep under wraps this whole time.
