    Soundwave is so excited that he is falling over under the weight of his own giant limbs.

    Oh my God, I forgot how WORTHLESS that picture of Soundwave is. If he were to "stand up straight" his arms would be touching the ground and his fists would be the size of his chest.

    Great nomination, horrible picture to use.

    Stop using Pat Lee art, Hasbro. You have art from far more talented artists to choose from.


    That is one CONTINUITY-DEFYING BIOGRAPHY.

    You can't spell "Transformers Hall of Fame" without Pat "The Transman" Lee!

    So, not only have the cassettes been retconned as Deployers (from SDCC 2009), they're also Mini-Cons now?

    Yes. Let's not be ruining the celebration now with Pat Lee! "Who invited THAT guy?! Turn off the lights and be quiet, maybe he'll think no one is home!"

    His bio is a generic mish-mash of all sorts of Soundwaves, apparently. Hence the ROTF "too many sonic booms" thing.

    As far as Hasbro are concerned, when they say a name, they mean that trademarked brand name and not any specific continuity or character, which could explain why the new 2010 "Transformers" line has characters from all sorts of unspecified continuities in the same line as ROTF toys.

    Wholehearted agreement with the "yay for Soundwave nomination, boo to that bloody awful piece of non-art" sentiments.

    As for the bio, I did have to have myself a massive cup of WTF with two sugars - since when have Rumble, Frenzy et al been Mini-cons?!? Bad enough they were lumbered with the colossally daft moniker of Deployers beforehand... :/

    EDIT: Just read Fit for Natalie's post, which pretty much sums it up. Although it does conjure up the image of Brian Goldner standing there squashing together a mess of what looks like Play-doh, whilst hollering "Continuities? Pah!" :p

    That's pretty much what I took the bio as, also. It's a nice amalgamation of Soundwave characteristics, summed up nicely for an all-ages-oriented Hall of Fame bio.

    ...and tapes as "deployers" or minicons? Sure, why not. Call them whatever you want.
