    I don't mind the faux alt mode, since its basically a rectangle it just probably won't be a cohesive deco...

    On that Alt Mode... At least it's not another Boombox, I guess? I honestly wasn't that bothered, but then at least they did something else...

    It needs wheels, dammit! Surely they could have hidden wheels inside his lower legs and shoulders easily enough. As has been said, though, at least it's not a 'Cybertronian boombox'. That Lemontree alt-mode is just awful.

    Actually, thinking on, it reminds me of Godbomber's alt-mode.

    It reminds me of Armada Overload’s alt mode. Maybe the included Ravage can tow him. :D

    It better cost less than their other stuff, the thing doesn't even transform, more so folds up. You can see the entirety of the legs just fold back, feet and all, and the arms just fold back and on top of the chest. The only thing that folds out is the treads.

    Soundwave tank is an interesting idea, but those are some baby treads.

    No doubt this was rushed to release after SS BB Soundwave's listing showed up.

    Yep, looks about as laughable as I'd expect for an alt mode of this design. I guess calling this a "transformer" is is a bit of a stretch. I could fold up some action figures into yoga poses and then say they have alt modes too.

    At least it won't be a bitch to transform like their Blitzwing.

    Kind of looks like a garbage truck to me. Oddly doesn't bother me too much. Not sure I'll get it though. On the fence on collecting MPs from Cybertron. With how costly the earth mode figures have gotten. I think I'll just stick with them. Do hasbro/model kits or something for cybertron.

    Looking at the Alt mode, it feels like the back should really be the front. There are, what appear to be, boosters above the tape deck. The only thing that needs to be done is too change the angle of that canon... and those treads... eesh....

    You know how to improve the design?
    - Discard the puny tank thread and just use wheels
    - Basically turn the vehicle mode close to siege Ironhide with a cannon on the top
    You can turn the stump arm into a booster of some sort

    Looks cool, but isn't it out of scale with MP/MPM?
