    I just saw the artwork, which looks pretty cool. I dont have the game, but WfC Soundwave is on the way and looks really cool. I dont know much about Laserbeak/Buzzsaw, and I wondered how much was out there.

    Firstly, which is it? Laserbeak or Buzzsaw?

    Secondly, what does he transform into.... A cube to fit into Soundwave?

    Finally, any good pictures of him available?

    Thanks.

    It is indeed Laserbeak. As for transformation~ I honestly couldn't tell you. He just sort of pops out of Soundwave during a boss fight, flying around n shooting.

    If you want to get super technical, his bird mode appears to be programmed as his vehicle mode, with no real robot mode. However, that was probably just done for the sake of game mechanics and shouldn't be considered any sort of canon.

    As far as I can tell, Lazerbeak pops out in his cassette form before transforming into bird mode.

    that boss battle with Soundwave, he "randomly" ejects Rumble, Beak and some others.

    I don't recall the "transformation sound" prior to the ejectees engaging you....

    my guess is maybe they transform into "cassettes" for easier transportation within Soundwave and their Alt-mode/robot mode is their battle mode?

    It's been a while since i played campaign so details are worse than fuzzy. sorry.

    They all look to be cassettes to me. And Soundwave does transform into a tape deck a few times in the game. Obviously, since this is pre-Earth, they aren't EXACTLY cassette tapes and a tape deck, but it's like a Cybertronian equivalent of that.

    Thanks guys. Are there any decent pictures of Laserbeak around, aside from the posters?

    That might be hard. Lazerbeak pops out then basically hovers while you blast at him. There are three hidden Laserbeaks you have to shoot for an achievement, but I'm not sure if you can get a good picture of one of those.

    If you've seen More Then Meets The Eye Part 1 then Laserbeak basically transforms into his cybertronian mode from the first G1 episode.
