With the an onslaught of releases from Argos, youtube.com member Majora22 has also posted a 2 part video review. This time it is Transformers Prime Robot in Disguise Deluxe (Revealer) Soundwave with drone (Laserbeak). Although he passes on transforming him in front of the camera, he has shared robot mode and vehicle mode. So without further ado:
I'm liking this one a lot. Not the most kibble-free alt-mode but I can see how it would need to suffer to make the bot mode more accurate, and I appreciate that. Definitely looking forward to picking this guy up.
Although him being not all that tall brings up scale issues, especially because I planned to get voyager Starscream. Now I'm worried I should have bought the deluxe.

So here we have a decent figure but no weapon...WTF? So for someone like me who doesn't care for the show can someone explain to me how Soundwave goes on the offensive when he has to? Anyway not too bad for a drone and his counterpart is a hell of a lot better than that POS turkey they chose for DOTM.

Soundwave twists an opponent's (and anyone else he's listened too; i.e. EVERYONE's) words, distracts them with Laserbeak, then launches a full smackdown. He doesn't simply shoot.
We've already seen the video review of Transformers Prime Deluxe (or Revealers if you will) Soundwave with Laserbeak, but we didn't get to see the figure in package. Courtesy of this eBay auction we give you Deluxe Soundwave with Laserbeak in-package. Images from the auction mirrored below.
For those who prefer a good old fashioned pictorial review, a very nice one can be found at Transformers at the Moon by clicking here. We've mirrored a few images below, many more are available by following the ling.
Guess I'm in the minority that's not very impressed. Head looks more like a Halo dude than Soundwave, don't know what his alt mode is exactly, and he has funky limbs. I'm at a real crossroads with this line. It sounds like they're wonderfully engineered figures, but I'm just not diggin' most of the movie meets Animated look...so they'd probably just end up in a box in the closet.
