I think it's worth it for the matter finish. He reminds me of the Animated toys and how they were generally matte. Plus it means his glossy face stands out even more as a screen.

Annnd..FRENZY! Lol I think of that as recon playback mode and put the fins down when he's done with all the autobot secrets he acquired

To be honest, as much as I loved the toys, I never liked the matte finish much on Animated figures. I think I liked figures like Sentinel Prime and Arcee more... because of the glossy plastic.

I personally think tfp rid Soundwave as part of movieverse Decepticons, considering the detail level, realistic-military alt mode, and the scale.. It fits well with dotm vygr Megatron and rotf sscream. I don't really like his altmode in dotm as a mercedes. Being a spy..the best alt.mode is a spy plane, also fits well as a continuation of rotf's satelite alt mode.




This will also give consistency as decepticons being all military vehicles in the first movie.. Too bad vygr blackout/grindor is too small in scale compare to other cons in picture.

Actually, as a spy, isn't a disguise to spy on the enemy up close the best? A spy plane is nice, but it doesn't get much closer than literally parked outside the target enemy's home.

That if you only spying on certain people. But I think in alien invasion scale, the spying thing is much more global than one person's house. Maybe the target is a country's defense system.

And I agree with mx-01, if he needs to get closer to the target, that's the reason Soundwave has minions.

But that's the point of Soundwave. He then just adopts a new mode. The Mercedes alt mode is great because it shows him in the process of inflitrating. It's context-specific, yes, but there's nothing wrong with that. I'm not saying a spy plane isn't a good alt mode, but it's a lot less actual infiltration than actually wearing a disguise.

I'm sure a flying bat robot the size of a motorcycle won't draw attention while it pervs through windows.
