    ONe of the bravest things to have done to optimus prime was deciding wether or not to put lips on.
    Indeed to me it was a good idea, but would it work for soundwave?

    To be honest, I always used to imagine what any Transformer who had a faceplate looked like underneath. And really, they did take Bumblebee's mouth AWAY, so anything is possible. It would be really neat if they made the surfaces of Soundwave's faceplate SPEAKERS, that you'd see vibrating as he spoke. That would be pretty killer.

    No. He shouldn't even have a face.

    He should, if only to piss off rabid Geewunners.

    Personally, I'd like him to have no mouth. If not, then something like Optimus' faceplate and mouth would do.

    What I think would be cool would be if he had his face plate, and then he retracts it or it gets blown off to reveal a speaker-like thing where his mouth should be. Kind of like MECHADOOM said.

    I have a question for you, why did you ask this question? My answer is no, but i might except a removable face plate like primes (in the movie).

    Yes, Soundwave most definitely needs lips. And teeth. Human beings cannot relate to a character unless they have lips. Its a proven fact.

    Because the toy that is supposedly SOUNDWAVE posted a day or two ago revealed his mouthpiece/face surprisingly identical to G1. (which made me happy) But I wondered since we are only revealed selected truth, maybe they would do what they did to PRIME.

    Why in the world not? Lips are teh roxors! Are you a geewunner or something? Would Soundwave having lips rape your childhood?

    I think Soundwave should definitely have lips. And even hair. A thick and full mane. Even a 3rd grader knows that lips and hair makes a robot much more likeable and relatable than a faceplate.

    And don't forget to add in reverse knee joints and 6 or 9 eyes. This isn't geewun after all, and we should move onto more alien like appearances.

    This is what the Bay has written and so it shall be!

    My opinion: he should speak normally (and by that I mean like the other english-speaking bots from TF1) at first, then suffer an injury to his processors so that he has a G1esque voice. I think if that's the case, that he also has visible damage to his mouthparts than make it look mangled and deformed (by movie standards) behind the faceplate.

    He's SOUNDwave, I don't care if he got a mouth or not, but he just SHOULD speak out of sound emittors.

    Optimus was made to show compassion for the humans. The lips on him were used to help him convey emotion and relate to the humans. Soundwave on the other hand should be made to be emotionless. Deceptions are pretty much anti human in the first place and I imagine Soundwave being no different.

    That's a logical sense but most of the movie defies logic so yeah, he will probably have lips.
