Since you mentioned that, I just now saw that. I didn't realize that the gold background was the Golden Disk.
If that was the intent, it might have been a better idea to have made it smaller so that it was more clearly the Golden Disk. As it is, it just looks like a large gold-coloured area with curvature to the upper and lower borders.
I recognized it as the Golden Disc the moment I saw the small thumbnail for the news article, but then again I'm a total Beast Wars FANATIC so that likely has a lot to do with it (seriously, I need help
This one almost makes sense to me, as I always did see Soundwave as being the most loyal of Decepticons (him and Shockwave, though that's entirely based on the show as I never read the comics). In fact, when Soundwave allows Starscream to cast out Megatron in the movie and quickly jumps up to try and become leader (after Rumble and Frenzie nominate him), it always seemed way out of character to me and I figured it was just so they could have a plot device with little conflict (though it does lead to the death of Starscream) to turn Megatron into Galvatron and get Unicron directly involved in the Autobot vs Decepticon war.
