    no surprises there then, they said ages ago that they had to make big changes to soundwave's design in order to meet hasbro's toy requirements.

    just in the same way as with skorponok and ravage, hasbro's toy requirements are simply that transformers should transform, so it was always pretty obvious that soundwave stayed as a satellite.

    Can't say it was unexpected, I mean lots of people have been pointing out that it would likely go that way. It's really too bad they didn't do more with him since Soundwave was something fans were pushing for, but then on the other hand at least he doesn't get killed so I'm pretty happy with that.

    Yep, not a surprise to me.
    The novel and comics and his lack of merchandise in general all pointed towards this, just some people didn't want to believe it.
    It doesn't bother me either. Just means he's guaranteed for movie 3.

    No transforming Soundwave in ROTF? :( 

    At least he doesn't get killed... here's to hoping he'll transform and be in on some major action in TF #3...

    Because a satellite floating in space is a boring trailer shot.

    And for Transformers 3, Shockwave will just be Plasma cannon hopping around like the boot-monsters from The Yellow Submarine!

    But if they don't show him in robotform, how do they give him lines. Do we see a point of view perspective when he speaks?
    I curious how the solved this.

    Theory;
    Could most of the spoilers be a lie, in an effort to keep the misinformation monster alive?
    I think so.

    I remember reading that Soundwave makes a call to Sams mothers cell phone, maybe this is where he gets his lines in?

    One of the things he says in the post is patently impossible based on the trailers alone.

    He says: "Sideways never transforms, he is cut in half by Sideswipe in the first battle scene in car mode."

    That's not possible, we've seen him transform after he jumps through a building in China. We've seen it a great many times, in fact.

    I am skeptical.

    So everyone here believes what has been said? 3 years to do soundwave "right", that isn't enough time? Rampage red, Really? & somehow Devs leg is yellow?

    I dunno something about those spoilers from the preview dont seem rite.

    Most of the spoilers are things we knew would happan and after seeing a kickass movie like ROTF being one of the first people to see it wouldnt u post up something alot more informative then that rather then just going to bed.

    I see a fake il wait till the end of the day for more spoilers.

    The fact he said sideways doesnt transform when it was one of the first scenes shown of the movie of him in car mode transforming and smashing thru a building.

    and the soundwave thing sucks he must not talk while hes in robot mode i bet first time will be the cellphone call to sams mother and the next time will be talking to megatron in space before he broadcasts the message to the humans

    But we know there is a red Rampage, we've seen him in footage.

    We've also seen Devastator's yellow Rampage leg.

    It's not rocket science, there's simply two robots with Rampage's design. Just like there are two Demolishor/Scavenger style robots.

    As for Soundwave, the novel and comic adaptation and the overall lack of many toys or renders for him have pointed towards him having a small part for a while now. Even Roberto Orci said "Soundwave is kinda doing his own thing in the movie".
    And yeah they did hype Soundwave up an awful lot just for him to sit in space and hack some satellites, but it looks like they wanted him to actually serve a function and be useful than just show up, fight and probably die.

    Once the guy at Don Murphy's board shows up again I'm sure he'll clarify some stuff, including the Sideways thing.
