    I bought this guy back in September. It's not a bad looking toy per se. My main issue is not so much the sagging diaper, but the poorly done legs. There's no support to stand him up on his own. The legs don't lock up as they should and the feet aren't capable of distributing the weight evenly.

    Are there any tutorials on how to mod this figure to fix the problem?

    I was so bummed when I opened this toy. Top half is pretty good but the crotch and legs are lame.

    Titanium Soundwave inferior, any other Soundwave superior.

    He's one of the few TFs I really regret buying.

    Titanium SW isn't that bad. He only deserve 50% of the bad wrap he gets.

    One mans opinion. That I do not share. If Tak/To releases a version gutted of the MP3 player parts then maybe. Till that day, not worth $120.

    He's "Feh" at best. The mp3 feature blows, and he cant even store any G1 cassettes in his chest. I'd rather take 3 Reissue Soundwaves for the price of one dopey transformer that sorta plays 2 gigs worth of mp3s.

    Unfortunately I don't know of a fix for Titanium Soundwave's legs. I regret buying it too, it really is a horle, horrible toy. I'm saddened that the original Soundwave is stiff vastly superior to any other Soundwave released after it :(  ML Soundwave does look cool, but it's too expensive and I have an iPod so couldn't care less about the MP3 playing ability. I'm holding out hope that they release a GOOD update of Soundwave in the Universe line to end the awful run of Soundwaves from the past few years.

    i too could care less about the mp3 feature in ML soundwave...i just think he looks great...and i only paid about 50 bucks for mine (traded a figure i only paid 50 for)...so that price is way better....theres a bunch of places on ebay where you can still get him for about 100 shipped though, which still isnt too bad of a price...

    Like I said, I'm okay with the sagging diaper. It's how the legs don't lock up around the knee. But perhaps the "diaper" adds to the figure's problem to distribute weight properly?

    Sounds more like you got one with some problems of its own. I got my hands on 2 tit soundwaves and both were able to stand up right.

    Only way I can stand him up is if I prop him against something.

    Revolteching Soundwave, the evolution begins now

    I know this is not a transformable soundwave, but a nice alternative if you ask me
    ( please not that he is not finished just yet)
