2005 Boards member Gunshot has shared with us another advance look at an upcoming Transformers Prime Beast Hunters release - from Beast Hunters Cyberverse Wave 2, here is a look at Soundwave! In Gunshot's own words, "This little Soundwave is fantastic, and looks fairly accurate in both modes. Articulation is as expected of legion class toys and at least he has elbow joints!"

Check out the in-hand images attached to this story, and read on for more of his thoughts on this new addition to the Decepticon legion!

Hey, cool, Soundwave is— Wait. Holy shit, is that- OH MY GOD, HUN-GRR IS IN THIS WAVE! OMFGWHARGARBLE.

Sorry. Just really excited for the Terrorcons.

So how's the transformation? It looks pretty similar to the Deluxe. I'm not entirely sold on the robot mode, but the drone mode looks nice.
Reaper Cloud
Soundwave looks great!

Where did you get that Breakdown? Is it a custom?
Valkysas
He looks pretty cool, but his face gets lost in all the paint on his head.
Shin Densetsu
That may actually look better than the deluxe to me. Dig the alt mode too.
Yaujta
Soundwave should have beena Commander class figure, but it still looks good. Impressive, actually.

Also, your Breakdown is briliant. DotM Cyberverse Ironhide's lower body and legs, with BD's upper body. Very nice!

Yup. I was annoyed with his small size, so I decided to do someting about it with the parts I had.

Good eye ! Actually BD's legs are just folded up behind him (adds bulk) and he slots nicely into the frame you have, after removing Target exclusive's IH's upper body. I thought it worked out very well too
The best part is - since BD was not modded - he still transforms !

Holy crap! Soundwave looks AWESOME!

This little Soundwave is fantastic, and looks fairly accurate in both modes.

Some head articulation would have been nice, but the main problem is that he may be too short...so scale may be an issue for some.
He comes with the same weapon as smokescreen.
They should have come up with some new weapons imo. Renaming the same bladegun many times over is just not right ...

I picked up Hun-Gurrr too from the same wave, but will open him later when I get all 5 of em "terrorcons".

A much needed piece in any cyberverse prime collection !

Just wanted to share some quick pics :

If you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase soundwave? Through internet or at retail in your area? I have my pre-order through BBTS and patiently waiting (that could change haha) for soundwave to arrive =).
Mechafire
Looks great.
soymonk
So Wave 2 is out eh? Time to go hunting for Hun-Gurrr.

Well, wave 2 is out where I live, which is in Singapore. I believe they are releasing the new waves here early, to drum up excitment for the supposed showing of the Transformers Prime : Beast Hunters (120 mins) TV movie this Friday the 15th of March over here. Needless to say - I will try to rush home after work to catch it on the day !

Hope its true and not just some typo in the TV listings...
Dinodigger97
He looks good.
charsdc2
Sup with all these cyberverse figures looking better than their deluxe counterparts? Wow!

I'm mildly curious what more does a legion's bot mode require before you're "sold". He's got fairly show accurate colors and form, ball shoulders and hips, hinge elbows (and ankles?), and no real unsightly kibble. It honestly doesn't get too much better than this at the moment besides a few exceptional figures with elbows and knees plus the things I just mentioned, like Cliffjumper.

Soundwave is right up there at the top.
Laserjet840
Soundwave is lookin good, my only thing is the head looks to me like he is digging his chin into his chest
Cha Chi
Cracking group shot you did there, love it, very nice what you did with BD and also how you posed Starscream.
Kaijumaster
nuts to Soundwave! I want some Hun-Grr pics!
SPLIT LIP
I'll be pickig up both him and Hun-gurr.
tfwmongrel
Won't Hun-Gurr be part of the Target multi-pack?

And I agree with the others here, Soundwave should have been a commander, not puny like Airachnid. Love that Breakdown mod, bummed I won't find those Ironhide legs anywhere now.
Flexx Ark
I can't wait to get my hands on Soundwave. Hungrr.....not so much, but will pick him up as well when available.
Autovolt 127
Seriously I love how Hasbro can engineer Prime Soundwave toys this well. I remembered thinking he'll be impossible....thanks Hasbro for proving me wrong once again.

Yup. The risk with that, though, is that the multipack was announced as coming with a unique deco. We dont know exactly what that means, but it will be different to some degree from the single-pack releases. So if one wants to be sure to get the G1-inspired colors, one had better get the carded individual versions.

I saw one on ebay for $9.99

Dude...SO right on. It actually looks better in bot mode than the deluxe to me, and I don't mind the deluxe.

Once again...a complete homerun for Hasbro on the cyberverse front. My son can play with any of my transformers except high dollar stuff and he ALWAYS goes for the cyberverse.

I'm wishing they included a new class for cyberverse. Legion, commander, and something lightly bigger on the deluxe pricepoint. Like the DOTM cyberverse packs. Those were actually great for what they were. We still play with all of those...bumblebees apc is still.awesome for a.car hauler...
CommanderPrime
Soundwave looks like a must buy for me!! And could we get a above shot of Breakdown (Ironhide's) legs with the actual Breakdown detached?
Shark Jumper
His head looks big, but otherwise pretty good.
OCProwl
Is there a how-to thread for that Breakdown mod? Anything need to be broken, painted, etc to make that work?

Soundwave looks awesome. So glad we're getting a real version for this line.
Surge
Adorable. I must own one.
GigatronSama
I'd have liked it to be a commander size. I was kind of hoping to get laserbeak in there as well. Obviously Laserbeak would have to be a one piece sculpt and take the place of the unique weapons that the commanders have. Still it looks to be very nicely molded.

I just posted a quick guide for my modded Breakdown in the customs section. Link :

THANK YOU. This mod looks quite simple, and very effective

Gotta love that group shot.

Now Hasbro, that wasn't so hard, was it?

Awesome thanks!

Will there be a vid review for this little fella? Shame you're not opening Hun-Gurrr until the remaining Terrorcons are released in Wave 3.
Flexx Ark
The BH Deluxe Ravage looks good with this Cyberverse Soundwave. It looks like it could have been made for this purpose.

Hmm true. With the premiere set in the states next Friday the 22nd me thinks wave 2 will be out sometime next week if the same pattern is followed.

I have one and this figure is on point. Easily one of the best Legions.
korpen9999
I am so glad I didn't pickup the first Soundwave (the movie repaint)
Now I can get an accurate version that isn't to high for my cyberverse.

My wishlist now:
Soundwave (CV)
Arachnid (CV)
Smokescreen (CV)
Hardshell (CV)

Well I'll be darn he looks fantastic. I'm kind of regretting getting the deluxe now. Also I have an odd urge to get voyager megs and stick soundwave on his shoulder like a parrot.....

Good thing HTS has him in stock. Only problem is there's nothing else I want to order right now. CURSE THE WAIT!

Hey bro. You can get him at a decent price and quickly off of ebay. The location of the figure/seller is out of your listed location...... NEW YORK! 2 left last i checked.
bio9205
Does he have any form of leg articulation, other than the waist? I'm assuming he has elbows, could you confirm that?
Ravage101
Video review time!!!!!!!!!

No leg; just feet due to transformation.
