    He didn't. He picked Laserbeak, since there isn't, and there has never been, a Transformer named "Lazerbeak".

    [/pedant] :p

    Because Laserbeak is by far a more well-known name. Not that that's really saying much.

    But, yeah. Laserbeak and Ravage are probably Soundwave's best-known minions.

    Because Laserbeak is much more well known... because he's already had Frenzy and Ravage.

    Maybe he meant Lazorbeak, the winning BW character.

    Also because if they used Buzzsaw, the movie would only be like three minutes long, since he'd kill everybody.

    [Nelson] He's not named in Laserbeak in the movie, that's just Hasbro's name for the toy, it's actually Fart-monster [/Nelson]

    Because Laserbeak is one of the more well-known minions of Soundwave, as others have pointed out in this thread.
