    Yeah, those shoulders definitely should be oriented to be more proportional, and there should be two flaps hanging off of them according to the stock render.

    It's a terribly unflattering angle, but I think he still looks pretty cool.

    I should wait for the TAV version to hit before getting this guy, but TakTom always releases their stuff long after Hasbro does.

    Looking forward to seeing more photo's of this guy.

    This may sound weird but I'd also really like to see the boxart for Soundwave, and the other new figures too.

    Since Starscream I'm rather surprised with the direction taken by this toyline, but suprised in a very pleasant way.

    Hmm. So this is what a shrunken, RID version of FOC Soundwave looks like...

    Not a fan of the design. Far too bulky for Soundwave, and the headsculpt doesn't fit the figure well.

    Wonder if there will be an in-show explanation for thee new body? Going from a stealth UAV to a van-thing is quite the change.

    This aesthetics is a middle ground between NuRiD, Animated, TFP and FoC. I think since this line is supposed be a bridge between the Rescue Bots and CHUG in the age bracket, HasTak is going for designs that can work this way. It's not CHUG by any means, but it starts heading this way. Just like Starscream. Or Ratchet. Or Takara's Jazz and Origins Drift.

    Head sculpt is so wrong many levels. It doesnt suit the bulkieness at all. Anyway, still a cool lookjng figure. I should find a 3rd party head after i got him.

    Actually, the head is the only part that's right. The bulkiness, the land-faring altmode, and even the colors are wrong. Looks almost nothing like the character it's supposed to be an upgrade of. Sure hope this isn't in the show.

    Looks dumpy but that's common with this line of figures. I still have hope for the Con with the 2 swords (I forget his name at the moment).

    Anyway Soundwave is a pass.

    Yeah, this is a funny little toy but Prime Soundwave has a unique altmode and design for a unique interpretation of the character, while this is a far more generic design going back to the FOC toy.
    Its not the best sell.
    They should have taken the original Prime design and do a reinterpretation

    I have a strong feeling that this design and toy as a whole will be retooled into Bulkhead. The proportions are pretty spot on enough for it to work. Same goes for Warrior RID15 Blurr into Wheeljack. Seeing as how we saw Ratchet be retooled from Strongarm it's not hard to see that we'll be seeing Bulkhead and Wheeljack show up later in RID15.
