    “I do not care for this particular vehicle mode on this particular toy.”
    “You are all unintelligent, unimaginative, closed-minded turds.”

    Do you see how that disproportionate response to a subjective aesthetic opinion over an action figure could, perhaps, fail to curry favor in a discussion?

    We’ve gotten thousands upon thousands of toys from this franchise. Most of them are brilliant - That’s why we’re all here. Sometimes, one misses the mark.

    I won’t fault someone for disliking it; I myself think I’m being rather forgiving about it. But as has been pointed out for a robot that likely was never designed for an alt mode, this ain’t half bad. And I’m glad they didn’t sacrifice the bot mode to give it an alt mode.

    It it the best? No. But it’s far from the worst. This could be a lot of fun with a little imagination- which, ironically, are what toys are supposed to be about.

    It’s definitely not for everyone, but “Cybertronian Vehicle” gets a bit of extra leeway with me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I would have to agree that the 3 party ones look better. I'm not the most flexible but this Soundwave's Alt mode looks like me trying to imitate a Transformer. It's a miss for me but I keep him in Bot form.
    And he's so similar to the "Lightpost" form in G1. I'm like, "What is he? He's just partially transformed. (Compared to the Seekers, Bumblebee and Rachet)"

    Maybe I need to go to the unpopular opinions thread, but at least Siege's alt-mode looks like a vehicle. Not a good looking vehicle, but I see it and I can tell, even if it's alien or sci-fi, it's meant to be a means of transportation.

    There's... nothing here. Just a gappy robot lying down. No means of propulsion, no front or back, nothing. This is an alt-mode that if someone presented it as a fan-mode boombox I'd go "well, it's not great, but I respect them for trying." For an actual alt-mode, it's nothing.

    I get walking the line between looking too much like an Earth vehicle and looking suitably alien can be hard, but it still needs to look like a vehicle. And this doesn't.

    Now, the argument that "well, who cares, we don't want to risk sacrificing the robot mode?" is wholly valid. I can totally understand that. Honestly, for a version of Soundwave that obviously was designed without an alt-mode, it can be argues that's the more logical stance. Go ahead and argue that it doesn't matter the alt-mode sucks. But don't pretend it doesn't.

    Definitely different strokes for different folks, because Cybertron Soundwave is by far the most aggravating toy from the entire UT for me. Transforming it isn't merely a chore, it's a frustrating armageddon-scale monstrosity. And all you get for your effort is a Soundwave robot that can barely stand on its skinny legs while wearing the entire altmode on its back.

    The Laserbeak is nice.

    I agree,

    I like how it both looks like a Tape player and a Snowspeeder.

    Agreed. Cybertron Soundwave looks kinda nice, and I love his Laserbeak, but the figure is... flawed. Like I have an issue with its backpack, its head, its arms, and its legs. And its alt-mode still suffers from "ignore my gappy upper legs."

    ... Laserbeak is awesome, though.

    Honestly, I liked the Siege Soundwave alt mode, but this one is even better IMO. It's cool that they're experimenting with Cybertronian Soundwave instead of just being the same old cassette player.

    I could see this alt mode appearing in the movie with tremendous theatre bass waves as he floats by...

    If the design exists, than it is screen accurate. This is Studio Series.
