I think that is one of the stupidest alt modes that could possibly be picked for a Transformer. I thought it was stupid for Energon with Shockblast, and it's more stupid for a live action movie. I mean how many satellites do you ever actually see? How many satellites do you EVER see through your day to day activities and travels on earth? Farther more, what do they have to do with making sounds/noises (other than giving a silent invisible signal)? Choosing a satellite transformation for a Transformer, let alone Soundwave, is one of those WTF moments in Transformers history. What good does it do for a transformer on earth to Transform into a sattelite??? Where is the disguies or the practicality? I know there have been some odd alt mode choices in transformers history but at least those were useful within their group and practical to transform back and forth to and fro amongst the rest of the Transformers and humans granting whatever expertise the group needed from that character. A satellite just orbits around space in the middle of nowhere isolated and all alone away from civilization. Space which is miles upon miles above civilized land... Hard to see how Soundwave could be within the ranks of the Decepticons on a mission if that's all he can turn into. Well that's my little rant for the month. Thanks for letting me vent.
