    I want to see Soundwave better. Whens the next Trailer.
    No! just kidding!

    I have heard people saying Soundwave is the mercedes but I say he is too big.
    we have seen his head on set on those pole things and he is a head smaller than Shockwave.

    I also heard that someone who has been allowed to play a bit of the game or somthing said Soundwave is an SUV.
    If he is an SUV in the game maybe he is the Superfunds truk in the Film.


    What do you think he transforms into?

    Not only that; in the game trailer, the car parts on his bot mode look very similar to the Mercedes as well.

    Which would make him sound the size if bumble bee. So now I'm trying to imagine bumble bee in relation to the satellite.

    As I understand it, most satellites are not actually that big. (At least not as big as some think.) So I could see the scale working.

    Satellites are usually pretty small but some are quite large. Depends what type we're talking about.
    I wouldn't be suprised if he was the Mercedes SLS and what a wonderful car to be.
    Although there may be some contradiction over the size between a satellite and a roadster. They'll probably just ignore his ROTF form altogether.

    Although he was big as a G1 toy, Soundwave isnt really a fighter, he's a spy, so there's no need for him to be a brute.
    I just hope they get rid of the Honey monster voice.

    It certainly does not. With all the technology at Bays disposal, it sounds like a bloke pretending to be a monster at a children's party.

    I think a g1 voice would be good because I hate how all the bay villians have grouchy voices.

    The vocoder ought to have been used. Without it, Soundwave sounds like some generic growly bad guy. In point of fact, a lot of people I know could not tell him apart from the Fallen because their voices were so similar.

    And no, I have no idea what he'll transform into.

    It's Frank Welker the original Soundwave.
    I love his voice for Soundwave. But I was a little worried at first but he did an awesome job.

    I know it was Frank Welker, but it sounded nothing like Soundwave's G1 voice.
    It just sounded like a dirty old man after smoking roll ups for 50 years.

    So use the vocoder then. There were so much effects on his voice in the cartoons that it could be Miley Cyrus and nobody would know the difference. Its the effects that made the voice. Just a minor gripe though.

    If they really are making Soundwave a Mercedes, I wish they had just made him the M-Class SUV since its bigger than the SLS and he'd be pretty close to Ironhide and Ratchet heightwise if that were the case.

    And I do hope that they compromise and add a subtle vocoder effect to Welker's voice. Like how his voice recording playbacks sound in 'Prime'.

    I prefer a mercedes so when we get a toy we have a nice car alt mode too look at.

    I'm pretty sure he's either the Superfund truck or the Mercedes. I'm guessing Mercedes, because the Human Alliance version means he'll be the same size as your run-of-the-mill HA, and the Superfund truck would either have goofy proportions or be out of scale with the human figures.

    So basically what you're saying is that you don't like Frank Welker.

    Cause the Dr Claw voice is the exact same voice Welker did for Soundwave in G1. Everyone remembers the other voice because they vocoded the hell out of it. There's one or two episodes in season three where they forgot to vocode the SW voice and you can actually hear Welkers voice talent.

    I much prefer the unprocessed Soundwave voice for movie Soundwave. He sounded so Soundwave, yet more evil.

    I don't see why everyone is saying SW is the Merc. The only evidence is that hes silver and has a set of rims that you see on a multitude of cars. I'll believe hes the Merc when I see the Merc's hood in SW's robot mode.
