    I like both characters but I have to go with Starscream. As a kid I had way more fun flying Starscream around then looking at Soundwave in his micro cassette form.

    Was always partial to SoundWave myself. Especially his little friends.

    Soundwave, in this situation, is indeed, superior.

    Starscream. He's awesome on his own.

    Soundwave's awesome is contingent on other characters - his cassettes. I mean, without his little army, Soundwave is just...an uncharasmatic boor. Albeit one with an awesome voice.

    Personally, I think Soundwave better overal, though Starscream is pretty good too. Would be nice to get an updated version of Soundwave in Universe though. Animated is ok, but doesn't really fit in with the non-Animated parts of my collection. The tape-deck wasn't too bad for that time period, but would make absolutely no sense now.

    Soundwave was my favorite of all time as a kid so I have to go with him. Miniature army? Check. Loyalty to Megatron? Check. Ability to KICK ASS? Double Check. Plus he housed Laserbeak who was actually the toughest Decepticon. Why? Laserbeak never freaking failed missions. He was an iron bird that had Autobots running away from him right and left. Awesome.

    I'm sure Starscream would get his share of licks in, but if they ever went down "that road" together, Soundwave would roll Screamers ass.

    Soundwave gets my vote. I just can't seem to not want to be inclined to by every iteration of this guy that is made. He needs to be properly reformatted for this generation, but Soundwave is still Soundwave.

    Actually I digress, Soundwave having a tape deck chest that houses his cassette minions is what makes him Soundwave...that and his voice.

    Starscream on the other hand can always be the most up to date bad ass fighter jet and still retain his Backstabbing and arrogant personality without any real compromises.

    Actually I think he has very well already. You should check out MP3 Soundwave. Great update of G1 that is my Classics Soundwave.

    That's not reformatting, it's giving a new mold to the same design with more articulation and a musical upgrade,lol. I meant like since it appears Mass Shifting has been abandoned for the new millenium, I'd like to see something more along the lines of what Animated has done with him, but for Universe/Classics.

    I know we're definitely getting a movie version of him this time in TF:ROTF, so I guess I'll just ahve to wait and see.

    BTW MP3 soundwave is actually my fav soundwave because of his awesome articulation...and C'mon, he friggin plays music! he is currently my Classics stand in also.

    I love Starscream, but Soundwave would win. He's more cunning.
