Linkin Park, known for their musical contributions to the Michael Bay Transformers Movies, posted a blog update of the upcoming Linkin Park Edition Soundwave with official images. This is what the band has to say:

"Linkin Park and Hasbro are collaborating on a super-limited LINKIN PARK EDITION SOUNDWAVE. It's a new and exclusive model based on the original 1984 toy, the one I grew up playing with. It includes Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw, and Ravage. There will only be 2000 units, available at SURU and comic/hobby shops.

Hasbro is currently showing a sample of it, inside the Transformers booth at Comicon. Here are some pics from Les, the designer. Shout out to Mr. Hahn for overseeing it's golden glory on our end (no, it's not real gold).

The LINKIN PARK SOUNDWAVE will be available later this year."

The images have been mirrored here, and feel free to check out the previous images that were posted from San Diego Comic Con here.

Are you looking forward to this release? Be sure to post your thoughts!

His head is mistransformed. How do you miss the face being visible? It's like... one of the only four non-gold pieces on the entire thing

Hasbro said that Linkin Park came up with the deco, right? It's so... uninspired.
rxlthunder
They should have waited for masterpiece.
Kaylynn
What a lovely gold finish you have there Soundwave

I'm intrigued, it reminds me of the G1 episode "The Golden Lagoon"
Sideways77
Wonder how long before it's dust...
Billzilla
Of all the fucking bands.

How about Weird Al, guys? Weird Al = MANY BUYS.
Vangelus
Ratbat is the new Buzzsaw.
Hicks_Royel
I think I'd rather have a Steel Panther "Death to all but Metal" edition Soundwave.
madhatprime
So this is all they could come up with? The color scheme is aweful. That's what I think at least. Much more could have been done even with only black and gold to work with.
mac&cheese
Wow I like the gold on this. It's a great variant edition!
StarLurker
Wow, my PC's calendar is way off. It says it's August 11, but apparently it's April 1st.

and how do you manage to swap Ravage and Ratbats weapons AND put them in the wrong place?

Just like in the Dictator movie "you've got the wrong hole!"
Avengers
I thought gold colored Transformers was Takara's or ehobby's thing?

This looks awful in gold colors.
jamarmiller
since they have the mold I am hoping they re-release it in regular colors again so my little boy who is turning 4 soon can have a g1 soundave

Electrum for the win.

Gold chrome lucky draw style would be so much better...

The Beastie Boys need one!

I wouldn't mind that! It would probably not get the complaints here about the deco lacking originality.

I'm not sure what parallel universe that - and I suppose the Beasties contributing to a TF soundtrack - would have happened in haha. Still, if I recall, both bands colaborated with the Dust Brothers...

You've just reminded me of how much I'd wanted to get a BB Mechanical Parrot tee.

Anyone think that the weapons might be done like that on purpose to give them some variety even if you think it's "wrong" or bad-looking?

Personally, I think the Laserbeak looks neat like that, as does Ratbat. Ravage might look okay if the gun was facing forward.

I think mixing up the weapons is a neat idea, I really liked it on Stripes and Nightstalker.
Starfire22
Looks like soundwave has become a pimp.

nope,

never attribute to cleverness that which can be explained by incompetence
Transbot90210
Ravage and Ratbat learned a lesson in sharing and swapped weapons. lol
juxtapose519
Soooo... anybody know how to remove tampographs? The only way I'd even consider buying this is if I knew I could get that stupid LP logo off of it.

Blingin'.

With Eyes of a Panther Ravage?

I'm curious how much they want for it, but I want the MP instead. I have the sdcc version with the four cassettes.

Yeah. Its not like Hasbro never mistransformed or used the wrong weapons on their toys before.
mindslicer
i love it !
hope its cheapp !
Scantron
What, exactly, is the point of this? I'm sure there is one, I just haven't seen it explained anywhere yet.

Granted, I'd like to see this type of thing succeed, if only in the hope that the next release will be a "Ronnie James Dio Unicron".

Linkin Park making something uninspired? That's unpossible!

why? ppl can have an opinion on the matter.

i hate linkin park but love soundwave so i will have to get this. the idea as a whole makes no sense though.

i see it as hey, you used our music in the movies, we like soundwave, haha get it, music right? but lets make it gold!

fucking rockstars.
igniz1984
This should have been the stan bush limited edition soundwave.
Onslaught24
want. NOW
freak176
Soundwave needs to put a feather in his hat. Then his bot-hos would treat him with more respect.
PrimulArchangel
UGH! looks like crap , would have been 1000 times better if it was gold chrome like a lucky draw soundwave.. That looks like it was colored with a old gold paint marker . The box looks better then the toy lol.

It's gotten lots of re-releases in recent years. Don't know if that makes them more or less inclined to do it again.

There's a ton on ebay. I bet with a little patience you could find one at a reasonable price
jamarmiller
Yeah I know, but they were done when I wasnt really paying attention LOL And my boy wasnt born or was just born. Now that he is coming of age, I really would like to give him a new one. And I have been watching e-bay for a few months now and I can never find a a new re-release MIMB reasonable price Soundwave. ( that you would give a 4-6 year old )

This would have made it an automatic purchase. And I actually like Linkin Park (mostly there old stuff)

To be honest.....the box that it comes in...if Soundwave was in those colors, I would be a lot more interested in it.
Incepticon
While the idea itself is not necessarily a good one, it does indeed make perfect sense as to why it happened. Linkin Park were the band whose tracks provided the 'title songs' for all 3 Transformers movies, so no one should really be confounded here as to why Hasbro did something like this regardless of your like/dislike for the band or the toy deco. It might not be the best idea in execution, but it's nonetheless 100% valid.
Autovolt 127
I'm good with the TRU reissue of Soundwave that I already have anyways.
Thundercracker
This is lame therefore I'll be passing.
AnAutobot1985
PASS. Doesn't look all that great and what does Linkin Park have to do with G1? Seriously they seem to think we'll buy anything nowadays. I'd rather blow my money on 3rd party right now they are dominating the TF scene!

Had it been Stan Bush however, I'd have shelled out the cash for one.

I seldom like all gold or all metallic TFs, but with that said I actually really like the look of Blingwave here.
TheBeastman
Great band, nice repaint. Probably too much for what it is, though.
Kimmer
So when is the Bieber one coming out? I heard it's gonna be hot pink.
brr-icy
gotta see what this is priced at, more cassettes is good news

Shitty band, shitty repaint, easy pass.
Cyclonus79
So whats to prevent this thing from turning into a pile of dust in 10 or so years? Not that I'm really interested or anything..

You could call him Blingwave if he had actual bling which he does not have at all lol. Bling is shiny and sparkley and reflect light , this is flatwave , nothing blingy at all about him lol
