    I'm after a g1 looking soundwave with an earth mode for my classics shelf in the deluxe to voyager range, and I've narrowed it down to either rid warrior class or the cyberverse one. Since i don't have any experience with toys from either of these lines, I'm wondering if folks who do can weigh in with a comparison?

    Or suggest an alternative soundwave altogether? Music label is out because it's too expensive. Third party options are fine, though I'm not sure there are any for soundwave.

    Only one I can think of that’s earth mode which isn’t leader but it’s bts toys sonicron... he’s pretty outdated and as much as I also want earth mode voyager soundwave I’m gonna get siege and hopefully make him a tape deck
    Here he is with classics megatron

    Cyberverse Soundwave isn't out yet so it's hard to make a comparison. RID Warrior Soundwave is pretty cool actually, and you might be able to snag one for around a tenner, I saw RID Warriors marked down to that at Tesco's this week.

    Also, any reason why not the G1 Soundwave? A new reissue will be on it's way soon...

    Oh wow. I thought that design never made it past the concept art stage. Don't think he looks great, but thank you for the photo.

    Hahaha, shows how much I've been keeping up with the current stuff. Maybe if i get the rid one, i can paint a little silver on his face for a mouth plate.

    I've got a g1 soundwave, but he's on the g1 shelf and as great as it is, I'd like something a bit more poseable and modern to go with the classics.

    I love that one, it’s been the Soundwave in my display pretty much since it first came out. I love it, bad minions aside.

    However I recently got the Bumblebee Movie Leader and I am in love with it, too, despite it being too big.

    Of course, there is also the new voyager coming out within a month or so that looks even better in robot mode, possibily looking the best CHUG Soundwave, although he turns into a Cybertronian dropship. I would still reccomend him though. He is $30 and a small-ish voyager.

    I'm waiting for the Siege voyager myself. I hope reprolabels do a set to fix his chest cause that battle damage is too much.
