    It doesn't, you just think it's bad because you dislike it.

    Not so sure anyone noticed, but does anyone know that part of the face looks vaguely like the Decepticon insignia in a way?

    Yes, for the first time, they're not grey men dressed in cardboard box suits, they're truly aliens.

    Awesome figure! Seeing it how it's supposed to transform (with all the wings folded IN, not OUT), and a real close up of the head...great!

    Bit too bad about the size though, and yeah..probably a preview figure which means he won't be like that in the movie (or not for long)..let's hope his earth mode is even cooler!

    I dig what they were going for with the figure but he still looks bland to me.

    10 to 1 we get a Leader class Earth mode toy.

    who ever designed the movie line needs a lesson in robot design form Takara. Them Japs know how to design some badass robots.

    Yeah, I've seen that argument a few times man. The kind of mecha that typically comes out of Japan would not look so good on the big screen. It would look awkward and boxy. These may not be the kind of robots we are used to, but they can move realistically. As far as Movie designs go, I personally think Soundwave is one of the better ones.

    (Not to mention, a lot of those anime cheat when the mecha move, they tend to use still shots to great effect so you don't see the mecha move in the kinds of ways the TFs did in the first movie.)

    This is just an opinion. Everyone's able to reach their own decision and it's no more right nor wrong than anybody elses. I personally think the design is fantastic, but I can respect that other people do not like it. Like I said, not traditional.

    Let's all remember that, please. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and there is no right or wrong.

    Personally, I think I'm going to like Soundwave's movie look, but I'm going to hope for a larger one or the earth one, because I do think this toy's design is not particularly appealing.

    I wonder if the final toy will have different colors? But if he's different on earth then I wait for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

    And finally this is what Soundwave has come to!

    I really hate to be a hater, but the G1 just looks so much better. I'm not saying the G1 design would work for the movie, but it's a bold, iconic design classic. The movie version just isn't. It's a more fluid agile design, but Soundwave really doesn't need that. He's the one character that doesn't need to be jumping and diving around. That's part of the reason the G1 design was so effective for his persona. It has a certain monolithic quality about it. It also has zero kibble.

    Where the G1 looks classy, Preview Soundwave just looks cheap. And that alt mode, even for a cybertronian mode, it's pretty blah. Doesn't even look remotely like anything.

    That said, it does look better than the first movie's preview figures, and they did grow on me eventually.
