    We still haven't seen his actual earth alt mode.
    Only what a, probably old, concept idea was.

    Hey, Cosmos is awesome.


    But, yeah, to be honest, I don't really know much about satellites. Soundwave will probably only be in that form for, like, 2 scenes or something.

    Yeah.
    Because a communications officer would clearly never find being a satellite, with all its broadcasting/receiving power and capabilities, even remotely useful.
    Or to put it another way:
    :dunce

    I was just kind of pointing out the fact that , in the cartoon, Cosmos's job was pretty much to sit in orbit all day monitoring decepticon activity.

    Soundwave would probably be more active than that.

    I actually kind of get what's being said here, about the silliness of a satellite earth mode. I mean, if no humans are actually going to see him, what's the point of being in disguise at all? Unless he just retains the mode of a Cybertronian satellite; that would be pretty plausible..

    Cybertronian modes ain't supposed to be disguises, they're all just faster ways of transport/attack.

    Soundwave, for example, in his sattelite mode can float around planets and collect data alot easier.

    Going off the figure, it looks like a Cybertronian sattelite to me.

    :)  I think the satellite is an awesome Cybertron alt mode for Soundwave. Fits in perfectly with the concept of the character. But I am hoping the rumor about him having a truck for his earth mode isn't true. Just seems like Soundwave's alt mode should be more..... unique.
