    So I have a theory on sw alt mode. Could it be the maybeth sports car that we seen simmons driving. If you see his bot mode in the game trailer it looks similar. Could sw be doing some secret recon mission? My only issue is the size difference but what do u think too far fetched?

    Pretty spiffy rims for an armoured truck.

    After seeing the videogame trailer today, my money is on him being Carly's SLS.

    Definantly a car alt mode, probably a sports car going by the wheels. Perhaps he scans Carleys SLS?

    The wheels are very similar to the real SLS ones and both him and the car are silver.

    While that may not be his final colour in the movie, it's kinda hard to image a pearl white armoured truck...

    My money is on a sports car as well, his design looks abit alternator-ish.

    The tires on the bot mode in the game trailer don't match the armored truck at all. Who knows he maybe the truck in the movie and maybe the sports car is just for the game.

    Trypticon makes a great point. I was a bit skeptical since the SLS in the movie has more spokes but the SLS in real life has the same wheels.

    Google Image Result for http://www.carbonfibergear.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/mercedes-sls-amg.jpg

    and...

    http://frenzyrumble.com/_images/dotm/4.jpg

    PLUS..the doors on his back/shoulderblades area.

    http://i56.tinypic.com/vwwlz9.jpg

    I just want to also say that it fits perfectly for Soundwave and his role/personality. If the SLS is Soundwave, then its the first time a human (Carly) has been in a decepticon in Bay Universe. Makes sense for it to be communication officer/spy-ish Soundwave.

    Thoughts?

    Might not be but..

    I think the BLUE merc is SOUNDWAVE

    and the SILVER merc SLS is "Q" (Wheeljack)

    changes are made all the time during filming,

    also, maybe the game people got it wrong...

    SW's head looks like the one in ROTF, not like the prop seen on set

    Applecidewipe just convinced me of Soundwave being the SLS. The wheels are exactly the same.

    The car we see Simmons in is a Maybach. It's also a sedan, not a sports car. I think you may be thinking of the Mercedes SLS AMG we see Carly driving.

    I proposed the Maybach in the game thread, but that comparison of the rims has convinced me that Soundwave is the SLS.

    And that fucking RULES. That HA toy is gonna be incredible.

    That means nothing, since Megs had his movie one head design on set. That Soundwave design is just slightly outdated concept art.

    Nothing looks like a communications officer. It's a diguise. That means it's doing it's job.

    The Merc. SLS is a pretty damn good diguise. Hot, expensive rich persons car. Not easy to get a hold of. The last thing you'd expect was for it to be a TF, let alone one of the Decepticon's main dudes. Plus I like how they always give the cons at least one car to keep things different.

    I'd be kind of disappointed if Soundwave turns out to be the SLS. Seems a bit small. I'd rather the armored truck between the two.

    Exactly what I was going to say, infact I seem to remember seeing that old head design of Soundwave before ROTF.

    The SLS is silver in the film, not white.
