Another blurred image of Revenge of the Fallen Soundwave toy reveals Generation 1 inspired head

Another blurry image of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Soundwave has surfaced. This image shows the head and upper body of the robot, revealing a good amount of blue detailing on the upper chest, and something that might excite fans of the original series - this new image seems to indicate that Soundwave will have a head design very closely modeled on his original appearance from 1984, complete with blue "crown", faceplate and visor! Check out the image by clicking on the image to the left.

Okay, is this supposed to be some sort of game, or does nobody know how to use a camera anymore?

it's typical for nevermore to beef about other people, did you dislike his way, then he says you take all to personal, ignore him - it really better!

The more I see it, the more I like it. Especially the head sculpt. This is probably the toy I'll be getting, as it looks about the size of a Voyager class toy (though it's still too hard to tell exactly how big he is). I'll be getting a Soundwave toy one way or the other, so there's a good chance that it'll be this one.

Really nice head sculpt, can't wait for this guy.
SPLIT LIP
This fig is BADASS.
kjeevahh

I'm telling you guys! In an effort to prevent proto-theft, Hasbro hired a voodoo Witchdoctor to put hexes on all TF toys, so that when taken early, a curse happens. It seems Soundwave was hit with the 'Hex of the Bad Photograph', wherein it is physically incapable for someone to take a proper picture of the toy.

Rumor says the Sideswipe toy has 'Obscenely Huge Site Logo Covering Everything' curse, and Megatron will have 'Hasbro Finds and Takes the Pics Down Before Anyone Can Save Them' curse.

And the Fallen toy? Gold Plastic Syndrome.

i do really like this sculpt.

how early did the "movie preview" figures come out for last movie?

I like the head. what looks like a red visor and a ridged faceplate looks very cool!

That looks pretty good, but his chin also has a V-shaped set of lines as well.
General Tekno
I see more of a mouth, myself.

But the head sculpt looks good.

Anyone else notice how similar it looks to the concept art we saw? Makes me think that concept art head is legit.

BAM!

It's really looking pretty good. I'm looking forward to getting some good pics of him in bot and Alt form.

Figure looks like some hybrid of Beast Wars Depth Charge and Tigerhawk. And the head actually has a bit of a Prime vibe to it.
saberconvoy
Looks very weird. I like the head. I mostly how close they can get to soundwave. But im still hoping for a little more G1 reference on the toy.
BB Shockwave
Nice head, too bad the body looks like a Vector Prime clone. Never imagined Soundwave as a fly-bot... a tank alt mode would have been more fitting.
dorfsquest
If this is the closest we will get to a G1 Soundwave homage, I'm more than satisfied with a head sculpt like that.
shocky the spy
This has got to be the real deal.
Stormcrow
I love the head sculpt. Fantastic. I wish they could have taken that approach with all the movie designs.

I do have one major fear though. I think it's pretty obvious that this will be a hasbro preview figure (like the Prime and Starscream we got before, which werent realy seen in the film). I'm worried that the Soundwave in the movie, the earth mode Sound Wave, will lack the recognizable G1 head.

Regardless, this thing looks pretty cool.
DieMaus
Yeah, this does look surprisingly G1-esque, not just in terms of the head, but also the colour scheme of blue, grey, red, and especially the yellow-rimmed chest area.

Still, I remain somewhat uncertain as to exactly how much significant this figure is going to be as an indication of Soundwave's in-movie appearance. The general consensus appears to be that this is likely to be a Cybertronian-mode preview toy, much like Protoform Optimus Prime and Starscream from the original movie line, but neither of those toys looked anything like the CGI models in the actual film. I do like the look of this toy (from what I can see of it), because I do enjoy a good G1 reference, but I'm not quite ready to invest my full expectations into actually seeing this design appear on screen next May...

EDIT: Oh, for...curse you, Stormcrow, and your infernal saying-the-exact-thing-I-was-going-to-say-while-I-was-typing-it.

I'm luke warm over Soundwave.

Nah, no need to hate, brotha. Great minds, and all that.

Can't wait for Peaugh to get this!

so what else can we mention to Soundwave...he is really looks like Dropkick according to the pictures shown on few days ago, i have no idea.
Bumblejazz
Man, I can't wait for more pics.
Soundwave84
wow i really like this but i see this is not his earth mode
Santoanderson
So what is the deal with this figure? Did the photog take these pictures a while back and is now starting to selectively release less and less blurry pics of the figure as time goes on? I just think it's a little weird that we're seeing all these leaked Soundwave pics but no Jetfire, Fallen (if the rumors are true), or other new bot pics. That's why whenever I see one of these images my red flags go up.
vektsilver
does he have lips????

lol

heh kinda kidding there. I think if he does have a mouth minimal movement would be nice.

But hey overall the head looks like soundwave so KUDOS to the movie design you have made my day.

this head design ranks up there with Bumblebee ( looks like G1 Toy so no gripe ) prime ( with the mask up looks great ) Jazz ( looks like him ).
IronhidePrime
doesn't this person know how to use a camera?

You're just insulting China, dude.
Takara_destron
From what I can make out that looks great.
RemusLupo
OK ...theres a grill..so hes a car I guess, still tis kinda getting ridiculous that there are so many different designs..I think Bay is trying to confuse us again.
Banzaitron45
I'm not going to be buying any of the movie toys, the ones from the first film were TOO disappointing.
megatronkicksas
This is the best I could do. The odd thing is it kinda looks like this.and like the protophorm figs. All the faces look similar so far.
Lord Ramulus
i think it looks pretty good, i don't know why people think that a toy will/is the exact representation of whats in the movie...theres something for everyone with this one and it looks like it won't fall apart the first time you transform it.
renegade_cavalc
The grill above the crotch looks very similar to the concept art with ravage and the truck.
shortround
he reminds me of bms jetstrom

That is what is surprising me ... that these pics are still up w/o any action on their end. That just leads me to believe even more that these pics are fake. Just made up of other toy parts. The blurry pictures are even more reason to think they are fake.

Sorry ... thats just how I think at this point.
Lookout
I really hope he gets an earth mode toy too, or just an earth mode period. I would hate tosee him go through the whole movie with a cybertronian Alt. it just wouldn't seem right.
It would be cool to see him as some kind of Comm truck, like that lovely piece of fan art that one guy, JolinJester made. that was incredible.
Starscreamer95
Every time I see him, I want the toy more!!!

Oh, and I love the head!
Ephland
Looks good, close to the original design. SW's head/face were perfect for the character - no need to fix what ain't broke. I hope he keeps the faceplate on the whole time.
WWMEGATRON
AH yes !! Much more like it !! A true clear image for once ,awesome too the Face design !!
