In your opinion, who is the best Soundwave out of all the cartoon genres.
I liked the G1 version too... It set the tone for the characters personality very well, I think
G1 Soundwave. I love Cybertron, Animated and the Movie, but there's no contest. None of them even COMPARE to the original.
G1 end of poll
G1 superior, all others inferior.
G1 all the way. I don't think we've gotten to see enough of movieverse Soundwave to know for sure if he really works or not. In the end the majority would still probably vote G1
G1 of course.
Who voted for cybertron...
Movie and Animated are cool.
Cybertron is pathetic.
I almosted voted for ROTF, but like someone has posted we have yet to see enough of him to decide if he's truly a badass. So G1 wins!
G1...but the movie version was cool...a satellite is a perfect alt mode for him.
I almost voted for RotF Soundwave, as he is pretty awesome, but we didn't see much of him. What we did see was great, but more would have been nice.
I really do like Cybertron Soundwave, but he's a younger, more immature Soundwave. If Cybertron was, overal, a better show and lasted longer than it did, I would have loved to see it's take on Soundwave grow and mature into the coldhearted communications officer we all know and love. Basically, he didn't get as much character development as I think he should have. On a side note, Cybertron Soundwave's toy isn't all that good, imo. Doesn't affect the show version of him, but it doesn't help overall.
Animated Soundwave is another great incarnation, but he has his flaws. If he could keep a body together for longer, he'd even be better. His lack of contact with his fellow Decepticons was kind of annoying, imo. I would have loved to see him team up with the others. Maybe they could have helped him gain enough strength to keep his body in one piece.
In the end, I voted for G1 Soundwave. Not because he was the original, but because he is, overall, the best interpretation of the character. And this is coming from a TF fan that isn't a big fan of G1. G1 Soundwave got good characterization, was strong enough to defend himself, and had some good and loyal minions at his command. I really hope they make the Universe Soundwave figure they mentioned they want to make. G1 Soundwave needs a nice, articulated, toy update.
In the end, Soundwave, no matter what version, is an awesome character.
He's just trippin' cuz he got served.
I did. I like his backstory.
Gosh dang it! Why'd you have to make me choose only one? I like all of them!
G1 Soundwave; the original and still best.
Cybertron Soundwave behaves like a deejay. We already have a guy like that. His name is Blaster and he's G1 Soundwave's Autobot counterpart (I would say nemesis, but I doubt Soundwave gives a damn).
Animated Soundwave was cool but like was said- he wasn't a part of Megatron's official ranks, put in only 2 brief appearances, and was never seen from again.
ROTF Soundwave's voice is all wrong. There are a few key characteristics about Soundwave that make him the icon he is; he's got the army of tapes (check- sorta), he's blue (check), has no mouth, has a single visor for optics, and THE VOICE. I can't stress how important the voice is. When I heard Dr. Claw coming out of his MOUTH, I was completely letdown. Sure, a satellite is a good choice for alt mode, but that's only because we're thinking what would be suitable and acceptable for G1 Soundwave.
