    Ok, one of soundwave's defineing features is his shoulder cannon, if it is even that. Out of all the G1 related media, he has never used it for anything making me wonder why its even there

    you know, other than looking really cool

    I could've sworn that shoulder mounted thing was a sensor, not a cannon.

    I could swear I remember him using it as a weapon in one of the UK Marvel G1 comics, but be damned if I can remember the issue and/or context.

    EDIT - Found one. The first Devil's Due TF vs GI Joe miniseries; pretty sure this is from the fourth issue, but I only have the TPB:

    He uses it as a missile launcher in the marvel series when he and Laserbeak wreck up a munitions factory.

    Per his original profile, it's actually not a cannon at all, but a "high-amplification directional radiowave sensor"!
