    do any of you think soundwave may be based of slendy. if any of you are familiar with 4chans creepypasta culture you probably read about slender man at some stage. but for those of you who have not slender man is a meme that resides from reddit which descibes him as thin slender faceless being that is working for something very evil but has its own agenda.
    while soundwave on the other hand is a thin slender faceless being that is working for something very evil but has its own agenda. sorry for the long post but this is just somthing if had in the back of my mind for the last few days

    Yeah, you just sunk yourself OP. Nothing original comes from Reddit.

    I always thought Soundwave's design was inspired from Evangelion.

    I think Bulkhead was based off of Celine Dion, they both have heads.

    I think you're seeing what you wanna' see, brah. It's obvious that Bulkhead is based on Charlton Heston. Not only do they both have heads, but they both have a pair of legs and arms too!

    Airachnid is a better match to slenderman than Soundwave is.

    The Slenderman is one of those urban myths that crops up everyso often...I think There might even have been an Xfiles episode on it.

    Most people will currently know the image as it was used for the basis of the Silents on Doctor Who.

    But no....Soundwave isn't based on them.
    If he were you'd never see him, just occationally get a second or so glimpse of him in the background

    If Soundwave and Airachnid engaged in a certain human activity that only happens in bad fanfics what we would get is Slenderman

    So, is this the reason why she was still second-in-command despite that betrayal stunt?

    Look at that chin, obviously Bulkhead has to be based on Bruce Campbell.

    No. He's based off Soundwave, made more creepy looking. The Slender Man was not the first to use the creepy, thin body idea.
