    I would like to see one or two more of Soundwave's minions. Maybe Rumble and Ravage, Laserbeak is good but two more won't hurt. IMO that would be a good idea.

    An interesting idea. However Soundwave's lack of bulk means that he would only be able to carry one at a time.

    I was kinda hoping the majority of what we see of Soundwave was actually his minions in disguise. Like, parts of his back form Ravage, the chunks of wings on his arms turned into Rumble and Frenzy, mutton chops to Ratbat, etc. and Soundwave himself is fairly skeletal.

    I don't think Soundwave has any others besides Lazerbeak. I do know in the toy line at least, Rumble is around as a car transformer. So maybe he'll show up as an old friend of Sounwave.

    I want Ravage to be like the Beast Wars version. A Russian accented commando.

    I doubt we're gonna get anymore minions but if Laserbeak ever gets destroyed, I'd like to see him replaced by Ravage.

    Considering laserbeak isn't integral to transformation but can rest on top of his vehicle mode, I'd like something more like that than the disassembly idea. Maybe Rumble and Frenzy could transform into missiles he fires that transform mid air and go Buzz Droid on their target.

    Personally however, I think Ravage and Rumble have become distinctive enough characters in their own right that I'd like to see them as independent characters who just happen to work for the silent right hand of megatron.

    Soundwave's backpack looks too removed. Could make a good ravage later in the show.

    Hmm... where would the minions go? Soundwave wears Laserbeak like a swimsuit... so the others could go...

    I'd like to see some more guys like Ravage or Rumble appear, however I do not want to see them attaching to Soundwave like Laserbeak. I'd much rather see them as separate entities, reporting to and following the orders of Soundwave without being physically one with him.

    I've thought about this. If i had the skill to create them (for the toy ). I would make them bombs that would clip onto his wings. The placement problem solved and easy deployment. As to who they would be it would depend on the bomb transformation. Maybe some of the more creative members on the boards can come up with some cool designs.

    ravage been attached to his back would be awesome, but i think if he was they would have used him by now.

    we do have shockwave coming, so it's still opportunistic if it will happen.

    I'd like to see at least Ravage, but Ratbat would be nice as well. Personally I was slightly disappointed that Lazerbeak ended up being just several sheets of triangular shaped sheet metal with no discernable face or other 'bird-like' trappings. This is only brought further home when in Triage Ratchet is trying to hold him down and it looks like two sheets of metal flapping around on the ground rather than an actual.. anthropomorphic and believable looking bird. Neither here nor there I suppose since Lazerbeak in Prime is canon now and works great as an attached/detached satellite remote drone (very cool as part of the toy as well), but it might be nice to see his other minions looking a bit more... natural if/when they are introduced. Heck, even the movie went more traditional when introducing Ravage- yes even cycloptic and all he still looked very much like Ravage (at least to me).
