    I only have Wheeljack, so I'm biased, but why not both?

    I'm kinda low on cash at the moment. I'll probably end up buying both within the coming months, but this thread is asking which one I should buy now.

    I don't have Soundwave yet of course, but I still have heard that Wheeljack is the better toy, and Soundwave mainly just looks cool. So get Wheeljack first.

    I got both recently, but they have yet to arrive, however, by reviews, I´d say do what I did and pick Soundwave first, though I went in that order because I am Geewuner as hell and am not a fan of Prime wheeljack as a character (will turn mine into IDW Wing or maybe get another one and do Runamuck and Runabout :p ).

    Could you be more specific? Which Wheeljack and which Soundwave? Character-wise my reaction is "Soundwave superior," get the new 3rd party MP Soundwave that's in the works. But as for toys that are currently available...Soundwave if you're looking at G1/Reissue, Wheeljack if you're looking at Classics/Generations (since the only Soundwave in that line is the WFC version which was good but not great). Or if you've got the cash, Music Label SW is great for Classics.

    And if you're looking at Prime...Soundwave, hands down. Best toy in the line, imo.

    Are we talking Prime RID? If so, I'd say Wheeljack. He is all-around perfect in my opinion. Car mode is sweet, transforming him is very fun, and his robot mode is awesome...although some have a problem with his long arms.

    Also, I feel as if I have voted in a poll similar to this before...

    Wheeljack. I have both and I'm more happy with Wheeljack than Soundwave.

    Soundwave, as soon as you find him. Wheeljack will be easier to find, so hold him off.

    I voted Wheeljack. I don't have Soundwave yet, but Jackie's just plain awesome!

    Both are good toys, but I'm going with Soundwave as he's a more essential character.

    I feel like Soundwave will be tougher to track down later than Wheeljack.

    To be fair, Wheeljack is making his return in the next episode, so that could change.

    Soundwave.

    He's in more episodes, there are fewer cons out, there's fewer non-car characters out, there's already a somewhat similar Wheeljack on the shelves now (Generations WJ is still pegwarming in some places), he's shortpacked...

    That's all objectively true. Subjectively, I like Soundwave more because I like his design and accessory (Laserbeak makes an awesome claw).

    Soundwave has a larger role in the series, and therefore is in higher demand, so get him while you can. Especially since he's 1 per case (at least in wave 1)

    Wheeljack is beginning to match Cliffjumper and Bee in his shelfwarming around here, so your odds of finding him later are better.

    Both are great toys, but really we need more context.

    Do you have any other figures?
    What are yuo character preferences?

    Soundwave is a great figure that isn't sort of duplicated in my mind. Poseability is "lacking" but he is super cool otherwise.

    WJ is crazy poseable but he looks like a stright up chimpanzee and isn't very emotive of his G1 personality. (SW doesn't look like his G1 self - but his personality seems similar). Plus the swords thing is done with other figures like Ratchet.
