I remember the rumor that Soundwave was going to be a helicopter and then that got changed to him being Vortex instead. Soundwave then kinda dissappared for a while then another rumor started that he was going to be some kind of home stereo system or something like that. Then the writers saw felt that this wasn't quite Soundwave, so they set him aside for the sequel, and that's how we got Frenzy.
