    Not bad. It's a bit odd seeing Soundwave with a mouth, but I'm not aghast at it. And I'm glad they kept Shockwave's cyclops look. Looking forward to seeing the two 'waves together!

    Maybe there's gonna be a challenge to Megatron's leadership by Shockwave early in the movie. And for a good part of the movie, Megatron will seemingly be gone. But then he comes back toward the end to punish Shockwave and we end up with a final Optimus & Megatron fight.

    All these complaints about Soundwave's different head made me look into it and now that i compare them, it does look different. But then again he had so many different designs during ROTF that i'm not sure what the final earth mode was going to be. Compare:

    I do prefer the older design myself, it looked more vicious and less gremlin like.

    At this point I've stopped caring about how the bots look - and these look Meh to me. I only care if the story sucks way less than movie 2. Hope it does.

    No, look closer, the whole jaw has been changed, not to mention he has a disk covering his ear now. The only thing that stayed the same is the crown head. The new version looks closer to the old design:

    I thought I read somewhere that mouths were important to convey expression; isn't that what Michael Bay said about Optimus Prime having a mouth?

    Yeeeeah, I can see what you're getting at. It does kind of look like the same sort of mouth Frenzy had in TF1. Kind of reminds me more of Beast Wars Rampage, though.

    Honestly, if it does turn out to be a maw mouth, it really doesn't bother me all that much. But I'm sure some fans'll be all "Accursed insectoid Baywave! Grrr"

    I thought that RotF Soundwave was perfectly creepy with his mouth (and Dr. Claw voice). Should work with this mouth, too.

    Shockwave looks amazing. That's exactly how I imagined him.

    But mouth on Soundwave? I wanted it but NOT that way. I wanted something more akin to the Evangelion robot mouths, that you only realize it's there when they open it.

    His voice was right in the last movie.

    Too bad he was in space at the time.

    But the only reason people are noticing it so much is because it's wide open. I could be wrong but I think when SW talks all the panels around his mouth shift to reveal it, then when he's silent they all settle back into a faceplate-esque triangle shape.

    I'm sorry, but, they didn't make it. I know it's hard to accept, but this is war, there are casualties :(  Would you like me to arrange a grief counseller?

    So basically his mouth from ROTF?

    This particular drawng of Soundwave looks so familiar.
