    That is fake. The toy did not have the GM logo or the wheels. Somebody must have seen the toy and then made the concept art. It's not even the same colours.

    No!!!

    That picture literally makes me nauseous. It's not Soundwave. Period. And if Michael Bay makes THAT Soundwave, I won't even see the film.

    First blue with red flames...and now this... Michael Bay is killing me!!!

    All I ask is that they change his head. I can stomach the rest of it if his head at least resembles Soundwave more closely. Why can't he have his faceplate and Visor?

    I bet that the final CGI model will be different... But then, the picture does resemble the Protoform Soundwave toy in some aspects, no?

    I think someone already suggested this, but now I've heard it for myself. The Transformers official movie page, when clicked on Protect or Destroy, that static sound has the feel of what SETI looks for - kind of a repeating but garbled pulse. To me it is Soundwave, going on the idea that he is a satellite. I just can't wait to see Soundwave. He's the coolest.

    I take it all back

    Soundwave's satellite mode is killer, isn't it? I just saw it, and that is what I wanted to see - homage to the original character. I like the Chevy mode now, too. Bring on Soundwave!!!

    I remember reading in one of Scott Ciencin's novels that Soundwave could make walls of pure sound that sounded like a freight train coming after people. Think we'll get to see this in the movie?

    I think he will. Look at those blue things all over him. Soundwave weaponizes sound. Plus, I don't think those blue things will just stick out all the time. The Soundwave protoform toy hinges down and his chest covers those blue orb-like things when he isn't using them. Which means, they're weapons.

    This is an early concept & not officially soundwave. The artwork is really good but too early to have the final artwork revealed, & besides I thinks i remember someone saying he will not be a pickup truck. Was is Orci??

    Not necessarily a liar. He did say there would be a marketing push in November and that could have been true at the time. I think he is as honest as possible. If he said something and it's proven to be false then it's probably because there has been a change in plans.

    Just read on Wikipedia that Orci had said that the truck concept was "dropped." IDK. Maybe they're right.

    Minus the blue orbs he's a spittin' image of Barricade. I don't think that is Soundwave. I think they're going to break the mold better when they get the new bots on film.
