    RE : Red Ironhide. I have QA issues with this mould it has a terrible gun and a poorly designed chest and the worst arms i've seen in a long time (especially the shoulders).

    But that said as a truck mode despite the sea of missing paint it has some merit. if only to give one of your Ironhide's a pair of similar guns.

    It's pretty contemptible that they couldn't be bothered to paint the windshield 'A' pillars or the wheel hubs though. It's a bit annoying that they didn't just use the established red Movie Ironhide colouring From the Legends and RPM car of a Black hood & rear section and the rest be a red body.

    If I can stomach buying that substandard mould again I'll get it for the gun and the vehicle mode.
    Perhaps I'll pretend it's The Fall Guys Truck waiting for a Young Heather Thomas to do a bikini car wash on him or something like that to try to make it interesting to me.

    Soundwave... is beautiful. I'm seriously going to pick him up.


    It's a shame there's only two full-sized HA Decepticons.

    At first, I thought Soundwave was absolute pants because of the feet. These pics are starting to sway me. Afterall, there are so few decent looking Decepticons that actually warrant being purchased.

    There's still a chance for more, Sideways and Crowbar as a car maybe, Crankcase would likely be too big sadly.

    Wow Soundwive is seriously MEH!!, his arms are the complete sides of the vehicle, just like deluxe Barricade and he was one of my all time least favorite movie toys.

    Was looking forward to this but will save my cash by getting the deluxe Soundwave :D

    Soundwaves toy, especially the Deluxe is so badass, it reminds me of how popular it was in the late 80's & early 90's.

    Great job to ILM and Bay for such a great design, SW was def. worth the wait.

    Gun aside - it isn't my favorite either, I think the chest is fine. As soon as I figured out that the grey plate locks forward, I've had no issues with the two halves locking in.

    And yeah, two guns would look WAYYYY better on him in both modes.

    So Soundwave was the car that Patrick Dempsey gave to Carly in the movie??? How did I miss that? I thought it was just another generic Decepticon!

    I would post a picture telling you how great Soundwave is, but being banned for a week took all the fun out of me... :(

    HA soundwave looks meh... I don't think he looks cool enough for me. So, easy pass. I honestly prefer the deluxe version.

    I still like Soundwave overall, but man the back of his upper body sure looks AWFULLY KIBBLY (where'd the car parts go...oh there they are!)

    He is so goddamn awesome!.... FROM THE WAIST UP.

    What's with that lower torso? Did they have to put so many of the car parts on his arms and leave nothing for the legs and waist?

    Really disappointing, although for the sexy car mode and Laserbeak I might be tempted to get him. Really looking forward to the deluxe though!

    I like everything about this figure except for the aforementioned "feet." Maybe when Peaugh or one of the other reviewers gets this, we can see if it's really that much of an issue. A little difficult to tell from this angle.

    The human looks more like Eric Bana than Patrick Dempsey.
