    Isn't it wierd that soundwave being such an' advanced robot is still you a tape-deck??? Wouldn't the humans laugh at him??

    Do you actually think Bay is going to have him eject tapes from his chest....???

    Ummm....who said that he'll be a tape deck for TF2? All we really know is that he'll be in the sequel, but we don't know anything about his alt-mode yet. We did have a rumor a while back, but, it was never really prooven. If it was, I missed it.

    I think it was a mistake renaming him Blackout for the first movie. He behaved just as Soundwave, and he threw Scorponok as if it was a little bot inside him, just like Soundwave.

    So, we've already seen Soundwave on a TF movie, though they called him Blackout.

    Yeah, but Blackout failed in his reconnaissance mission: design-wise Blackout was Soundwave, character wise Frenzy was Soundwave. Now let's see them get it fully correct next time.

    Exactly. I still think of Blackout as Soundwave in the first movie. Personally I'm not all that happy Soundwave is in the sequel.

    *edit: Unless it looks even MORE like Soundwave than Blackout did (which Blackout looked nearly identical as a Soundwave update anyway), and he talked with his synthesized voice. That would definitely be cool*

    Frenzy did not match Soundwave's character at all....perhaps his FUNCTION... but he did not act like him whatsoever.

    Well seeing as his name "Soundwave" pertained as a communications and infiltration expert that happened to be a tape player, he really doesnt have to have an alt mode pertaining to sound as long as he still does what his programming is meant to do which is communications and infiltration. He could be a stealth fighter that releases one of those bomb-detonating robots(which could be Rumble) and could also release a spy drone which would turn into Lazerbeak

    I wouldn't laugh at SoundWave because he could step on me. Never laugh at anything that can step on you.

    You're all wrong. Blackout was originally Vortex, not Soundwave. Soundwave was frenzy. But since Frenzy deviated so much from the original Soundwave, they decided to save him for the sequel.

    there was some fan art depicting soundwave as an armored car and it maintained his original look despite the changes. And Ravage was his spare tire. I hope the writers look at this and Bay approves the designs because it looked really good.

    I know who you're talking about. Some of his stuff looked better then the character designs that were actually in the movie.

    I think the Stealth Bomber is a fantastic idea for Soundwave. LaserBeak could be a UAV that Soundwave deploys in bomber mode, or could be deployed off of his back in robot mode. When 'UAV-Beak' is attached to Soundwaves back, he can act as sort of a jet pack. Rumble or Ravage could be deployed as munitions of some sort. A bomb's curvy design would fit Ravage nicely.

    Yeah, it really seems like Soundwave will be in the sequel. I do want his design to be a car: it'll mean his robot mode can be swift and agile like the Autobots and not some clunking monster like most of the Decepticons.

    I think of Blackout as... Blackout.
    That's because he's called Blackout.
