    Wait a minute... you're not Rewind. You're really Steeljaw or Nightstalker or SG Ravage or Stripes, aren't you?

    Wow, I never noticed until now that Blaster has 4/5's of a Voltron in his chest.

    OK I understand, although I still don't agree. Also, cubist is an art style, and doesn't necessarily mean "boxy" at all, which I think is what you meant to write.
    They have a lot that's being developed, and their BB movie Optimus is just about ready for release (there are a couple video reviews on it already), but nothing actually in the hands of consumers yet AFAIK.

    That's one of the things I always liked about TFPrime. Soundwave as a surveillance drone was a great interpretation. I also liked Revenge of the Fallen's satellite mode.

    They should have just taken the FOC/IDW route and made him some kind of APC.

    Huh.
    This lemon tree effort is probably about as good as anything else.
    Wait and see I guess.

    Agreed.

    Already gave up on this line tbh. $70 deluxe figures is not appealing to me. I’d rather wait on MP figures with a lot more refined engineering and actual altmodes for just a little more and a way bigger figure for the price.

    Yeah I think this is the final nail in the coffin for me too. Oh well I guess some people will be happy with this, since it is the best "transforming" version of this design. And although I can guarantee it's gonna be way too expensive, the paint work is at least nice.

    I realize it was expected with this design, but that's still too much of a non-alt mode for me, especially at that price.

    More than enough awesome figures this year, though, so all good.

    I'm down with this, him turning into a box is fine for me because it's both cop out and homage. Soundwave has the built in easy out for a design that wasn't intended to be anything. Hopefully he's a little involved, but I'll take it. Now if they do this again with Shockwave, there's gonna be words.

    Ravage is a huge win. I'm kinda hoping they look into inventing more deployers in this style that can fit in there. If you're giving us a space box, at least fulfill the promise of multiple smaller boxes.

    Also, just once I'd like to see a space box do the "space box justification" that's been implied a couple times. A play set where you dock wave and unlock features.

    Ten out of nine cats agree, nothing beats a box.

    Cancelled my ThreeZero Soundwave for this one. They at least got the head sculpt right and it transforms too.

    It sounds like 3rd party companies don\'t even try when coming up with a name because every knows who it is.
