Soundwave’s CYBERTRON-inspired jet/satellite mode was awesome. But I wondered where he would be in the first film. Orci and Kurtzman tried their best to cast Soundwave, but couldn’t find a way that was agreeable. - They originally had him in mind for the MH-53 helicopter Decepticon (the one who used an EMP, hacked into a computer base and deployed a minion), but Hasbro objected so they renamed it Blackout - They next had him become a police Saleen automobile (the one who traced Ladiesman217 and later interrogated Sam, and deployed a minion again), but since that was basically a Prowl ripoff they finally renamed it Barricade. - They finally settled for the classical music player mode (the one who snuck into Air Force One and Hoover Dam, put in a virus, and survived in a smaller form) but that Con was way too different to fit him so it was renamed Frenzy I think I’d see Soundwave as the helicopter, provided he survived the battle. What do you think?
