    With reference to this, the writers said that when he'll eventually speak it'll be big, could be telling megs he serves him, "Soundwave superior" would be a nice nod to megatrons back chat.

    I wanted to ask about SoundWave's true form...

    [​IMG]

    Here it is seen, that he is even higher, than Megatron.
    What has happened to him, that has made him as small as StarScream is?
    Does Lord Megatron want them all to be weaker then he is himself, or this refers to the kind of transport other Decepticons have chosen? Which is a doubt.
    And could somebody tell me to what exactly does SoundWave transform?

    I guess he lost his "symbiotes"/minispies/mini-cons.
    Laserbeak is ON Soundwaves chest which means that the other minicons he had also were on him during that time, making him appear taller.
    Or he had decided that a sleeker, smaller model would benefit him more?

    Hellbat, thanks...

    "Or he had decided that a sleeker, smaller model would benefit him more".
    Might be.

    No one knows what he once transformed into on Cybertron, as we haven't seen anyone's Cybertronian mode, save for Megatron, who has yet to drop his.

    Soundwave is standing in the foreground in the picture you posted and Megatron is elevated. Megatron and Soundwave most likely stated the same height, though build does appear to be different for Soundwave. His new mode, most likely played a major role in his slimmed down look.

    Not gonna lie here. I came into this thread expecting some trollface shit, but left (or rather will leave since I'm still here) with the satisfaction of a read that'll probably exceed the product.

    Thanks to a size comparison thread way back (not sure where it is now) we can definitely say that Soundwave is taller than Starscream. Minus Starscream's wings, Soundwave is also wider.
    Since that pic is of Soundwave's Cybertronian form, he will likely look chunkier. My reasons for the slimness he gained:
    -some of the Exodus supporters on these boards could be right that he slimmed down since his days as a "gladiator".
    -My theory: He took a load off since he has been producing the Decepticon army of drones
    -The other theory: He probably had more mini-cons on him at the time

    @TrueNomadSkies: If you are talking about the point of this thread, believe me, I wouldn't troll for anything unless I am a screaming obsessed fan for something. Right now, this thread is just highly speculative but from I can dig up (and others), it can also be reasonable. I wouldn't post a fan-fic as a thread topic.

    Yes, I know, but Megatron is stuck right behind SoundWave, but fine- they are about the same height.
    Is it a sertain name?..I'd like to see it.
    Is there en episode, showing StarScream in his nearly arena- time, wherever in the 1st season?
    Or is it a conjecture, based on the fact, that StarScream has always been shorter, than Megatron, according to some cartoons, comics or else?
    As far as I understand, he has never been a combatant...It's from "Megatron Origin" comic.
    Was he really able to have any that period of time?

    He was a gladiator in Exodus, being the only one who could match Megatron.

    Too bad the show writers are never half as good as the fanboys.

    Uhh... no? Soundwave was Megatron's chief FOLLOWER. He's never even been SiC. The only Reason Megatron doesn't order him around is because SOundwave is the only con who actually displays loyalty. The rest require a constant reminder that he is in charge. Soundwave believed in Megatron's ideals and Megatron himself. That's why he didn't leave Megs even when Airachnid attempted to assume command.

    I like the idea, but I honestly wouldn't want to see it in the show.

    He stepped out of the foreground? He's not taller than Megatron, Megatron's just elevated in the background.

    Soundwave is now 75% more awesome.

    He now totals 175% awesome.

    This is how I feel. Its a hell of an idea. Well-researched. But I don't think I want to see it in the series

    I now demand a Soundwave AMV to Rinzler's music.

    Actually, he's only really had the one brief action scene.

    Wait until he fights some more and then I DEMAND THAT AMV.

    I would very much like to see a Soundwave fight scene that goes aerial and isn't brief.
    Imagine this:
    Soundwave=Rinzler
    Megatron=Clue
    :D

    I like the idea quite a bit.

    However, it seems to me like the kind of thing that Prime himself would know about, and his focus is clearly on Megatron.

    Soundwave is the ultra-competent guy who really has no interest in command. I'm sure he has some of his own motivations and such and is perfectly able to manipulate his leader sometimes. It's not like that's a new concept.

    That said, "Prime" Soundwave is probably my favorite incarnation of the character. He was cool in G1 but he never really.....did anything. He always just kind of said "minions, go" and then that was that. Rare for him to take a stand himself. He's done some shit in Prime.
