    A lamppost?
    lol I'm so original and funny.

    Seriously though, I have no clue. But I'm willing to bet it's not going to be like that RPM.

    Maybe a jet of some sort like he was in Cybertron/Galaxy Force?

    It would be neat if he WERE a lamppost, and you did stealth ops missions with him, turning into almost random scenery pieces in order to hide...

    Well, it would be KIND of neat, anyway.

    A lamppost actually makes a better disguise than a lot of the other Cybertronian alt-modes, if you really think about it.

    I'm expecting him to be something along the lines of a hover-car.

    His upper body is triangular, perfect for a triangular ship

    Considering many past Decepticon alternate modes, probably a ugly mass of nothingess that hovers called CYBERTRONIAN JETZ.

    If its cybertronian why should it resemble something you instantly recognise? How dare it be different!

    It doesn't matter what he transforms into, no-one is going to like it.

    Actually, when you think about it, the RPM car really makes sense because most Autobots use wheel vehicles while Decepticons use flight or some sort of hovering for their vehicles. Most bots would mistake Soundwave for an Autobot. (Of course if he can change his symbol and glow which some bots are capable of doing.)

    There's a difference between looking good and recognizable.

    Megatron's WFC altmode and Starscream are utter shit but not becase they're different from stuff on earth, it's because one is just a floating lozenge and the other a brick with short wings, we've had much better looking cybertronian alt modes in the past and we know they can do much better than cybertronian decepticon alt modes in recent series, such as WFC and Movie.

    I think it will be a Cybertronain communications van like his War Within counterpart.

    If you really think about it, Cybertronian modes aren't meant as disguises, just transportation.

    Exactly. Nobody gets that they're not supposed to be anything we would know. They're ALIENS for God's sake.

    If that were true, Soundwave wouldn't have had that lamppost alt-mode in G1 to begin with. He was spying on the Autobots, after all. I'm not quite sure how useful a transportation alt-mode would have been for that mission, as opposed to something that can just blend in with the background scenery.

    Yeah, he used it to blend in with the environment so Bumblebee and Wheeljack didn't see him.

    I'm guessing it'll look somewhat similar to the Cybertron toyline Seeker design.

    Some kind of road vehicle. He's not angular enough to be a jet, and he has massive wheels on his back in that concept art.
