    I don't know if this thread's been done before, but I want to know. What do people think Soundwave would do if he came to Earth? Since we've all been complaining that he didn't, what communication/hacking could he do from the ground where he is more open to attack? Space is a good spot for him IMO because he has access to the satellites and access to the whole freaking atmosphere. What possibly better job could he perform down there on the planet?

    Dr. Claw death FTW!

    But, in all seriousness, not all communications on the planet are controlled by satellites. There are secure hardlines that go to various government agencies as well as secure Intranets. Getting into those would be the only purpose I could see him having but, even then, it's hard to say how well his communication abilities would be on Earth. He's got much more freedom and line of sight to other Decepticons floating in space.

    Yea like others have said, he doesn't have much reason to come to earth. I would think that's what his minions are for, to come and do the dirty work. It would be cool to see him transform in space and blow up some ish!

    His only purpose wouldn't change much, more hacking and spying, ofcourse without the help of his minions. It would be nice to see Soundwave alone take down or take over the pentagon, and maybe a couble military bases along with blackout..

    He'd bring back the world's passion for mixed tapes.

    Soundwave will probably show up, but I dread it. As someone pointed out, he'll probably just get killed unceremoniously. To Bay he's just another robot those fans wanted in the film, but most importantly he's a bad guy...which means he can be shot down along with all the other clones/generics.

    When that fake script was floating around, wasn't there a scene where Soundwave just stood motionless throughout a huge battle, then when was attacked up close started whooping ass?

    That's how he should be in TF3. Won't fight unless he has to, and then ruins his opponent's shit.

    My wife made me mixtapes back in the day. I'd be surprised if any of the damn kids knew what one was.

    I could see one reason being that the military could find out out him after they investigate why the their communications with NEST and the Autobots were cut off.

    And just keeping him up in orbit the whole time is a waste of Soundwave's character.

    He'd get a job with the local cable company.

    Yeah, Prime can't afford to go dying again so soon.
