    Am I the only person who doesn’t have a problem with Soundwave’s alt mode?

    It’s Cybertronian. It doesn’t have to make sense. I’m just glad that whatever it is, Hasbro didn’t compromise the bot mode for it.
    THAT, IMO, is what’s important.

    Oh I definitely have no problem with his alt mode. I am just enjoying the universality of everyone's humorous takes on it because it's so undefined. :lol  (I have a weird sense of humor. People serially all finding a similar take about something is funnier to me than actual jokes.)

    A lot of people are trying to be clever in shade throwing for the sake of throwing shade... and I don’t think it’s working.

    I do wish it was more of a van like alt mode like WFC and later on in IDW or even Cyberverse but I can live with it because they didn't sacrifice the robot mode for the alt mode and I'm sure fan modes will come out for him that will make him look better.

    What's with the press release talking to "parents"? Who is Hasbro kidding? :lol  They know we're buying these for ourselves!

    Soundwave competing with the ROTF Studio Series figure for most laughable alt mode ever, I see. Like, is it backwards in the photo or something? Are we supposed to be looking at it from the other side? Otherwise I don't see how they could make it look worse if they tried.

    But it looks like they might have made Ratchet work!! Tempted to pick him up (possibly in Ironhide flavour) along with Wheeljack.

    Thank you, because that wasn’t what that word meant.

    Good for you, I guess? Who said anything about beasts?

    And if G1 is the only thing being sold, then yeah, I guess it would keep selling.

    I'm not sure how to say this, but while an alt-mode doesn't have to necessarily look like anything in particular, it should look like it's... something. And Soundwave... doesn't. It's just... crumpled Soundwave. I'll still get it, but I'm sorry. "Cybertronian" or not, that alt-mode is shit.

    Ravage, on the other hand... that's impressively bad. Do you know how bad a Ravage has to be for me to not consider buying it? It looks terrible in both modes.

    That soundwave alt mode is the laziest thing I think I've ever seen. They really couldn't think of ANYTHING for him to turn into? ESPECIALLY at a voyager size????? Yet Shockwave gets shafted as the Core class?

    That's just disgusting

    I think he looks fine in jaguar mode I do wonder what's up with his alt mode since that's not what it looked like in the movie.

    Definetly better than his Seige/ER and CW versions (especially in terms of proportions I mean at least this version has a tail unlike the Seige version).

    For me, I don't necessarily have a "problem" with it, rather then it just kind of makes me smirk in the same manner as someone saying they're about to do something cool and then watching them immediately face plant.

    I also have to admit, as someone who wasn't %100 into the on screen design of the CG model, there's something about this figure that kind of refines it to a point that I kinda like it...Question is, do I $40 like it enough to buy what will pretty much remain as a Voyager scale Action Master?

    I defended Siege Soundwave spaceship mode a lot because I could see it fitting into a setting like Star Trek or Star Wars but the new figure yeah I got nothing.

    Honestly, these figures still look really good, and if you want them more power to you but they're just not my thing. Also, this really feels like they are padding out the line until they can start doing Rise of the Beast figures. However, if it leads to more Transformers being produced I'm not going to complain about it.
