Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Cyrano we bring to you a bunch of new pictures and a little review on the San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Tablet Soundwave! Soundwave is a very complex piece of real life turned into a robot, and does a nice job of capturing the classic Soundwave look. Check out all the images below, and let us know what you think!

Cyrano wrote:Anyway, he's a very nice Transformer. It's a wonderful tablet, even if the screen does look a little shattered. Just like the real thing, his glossy screen is prone to picking up fingerprints.

He has nice, nonfunctional volume, power and lock buttons on the sides

And a headphone jack...

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

...That can snugly fit an actual pair of 'phones! It's very snug though, so I wouldn't do it often.

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

He has a pretty convincing camera in the back

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

But the rest of the back is pretty much just the best robot pancake you've ever seen.

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

For the transformation, the bottom part comes off

The back of it stores the two guns

...Which can combine stick together into a bigger gun.

The rest of the bottom part transforms into a little robot animal buddy. I've heard it called Laserbeak, but I think it looks a lot more like Ratbat. The tablet's dataport is a bit of a stretch as a face, but it's also kind of cute.

A chunk of the screen is also removed for transformation, which is then a shield for the robot. The inside has some nice sculpting, with bits that look like processors, etc.

The rest of the tablet transforms quite nicely. The robot is pretty thin, as expected, but adds extra bulk in pretty much all the right places to still feel like he has enough substance.

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

He's remarkably well articulated too, although a little quirkily. Lots of swivels and hinges, many of which are ratchety. His legs especially have a ton of range, including some of the most flexible ankles I've ever played with. He's well balanced too, thanks largely to his sizeable feet.

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

His biggest articulation limit is that his head doesn't move. In order to make it three dimensional enough, it's actually formed of three slabs. It's pretty fun and satisfying in the transformation, but definitely makes him less expressive.

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

Thanks to smart placement of the connection parts for the bottom part of the tablet, Ratbat can also connect to Soundwave's back as a pair of wings/fins/whatever. It looks nice and it's good to have the extra interaction.

Transformers News: San Diego Comic Con 2016 Exclusive Soundwave Images and Review

Here he is alongside Device Label Soundwave and Vector Prime. Most of my robots are packed right now from a recent-ish move, so I didn't have any other Soundwaves handy.

That's all the pictures I took! If anyone has any questions or wants to see anything I didn't single out let me know!

TFcon Chicago has provided some new updates on their upcoming convention, which will be held October 21-23 of this year. The guest list now includes Richard Newman, known to all of us as the voice of Beast Wars Rhinox, and artist Sara Pitre-Durocher, the main artist on Till All Are One! Also included is a mention that the hotel block is being expanded to include more rooms.

We are very pleased to welcome artist Sara Pitre-Durocher to the Chicago guest list this year.

Sara has worked on IDW’s Combiner Hunters one-shot, The Transformers 46, 47 and 49, and is now the primary artist on the new ongoing comic book Till All Are One. While she will be attending all weekend, details on her signing times and where to get prints and commissions will be announced at a future time.


TFcon is proud to announce that Richard Newman will be appearing as a guest at this years convention in Chicago. Known to Transformers fans as the voice of Rhinox in Beast Wars, Tankor in Beast Machines and Vector Prime in Transformers Cybertron. Mr. Newman will be taking part in Q&A panels and signing for the attendees of the America’s largest fan-run Transformers convention all weekend long.


Due to the high demand for TFcon Chicago 2016 the Hyatt Regency O’Hare has added additional rooms to our hotel room block. If rooms become not available at the host hotel you will have the option to book down the road at the Aloft Chicago O’Hare.

Earlier this year in February and March, we reported on new highly poseable figures from Toys Alliance: MAS-01 Optimus and Teppeki Gokin Optimus Prime. At TF Nation, this week-end, all these licensed toys were further shown along with a Megatron silhouette teaser.

MAS-01 Optimus Prime is set to stand 48cm (about 18 inches) tall, features 72 points of articulation, including individual finger movement, an opening matrix chamber with a light-up matrix of leadership, and glowing robot eyes. Teppeki Gokin Optimus Prime is a FoC style Optimus Prime and still at the prototype stage as can be seen below.

With only a couple of days left before the debut of TFNation - the new UK Transformers fan-run convention - and a big announcement that just came through the pipes, we thought to round-up bits of what you may have missed in the past couple of weeks! First off: Sins of the Wreckers TPB before its release date available via Nick Roche (to buy) and the event (as prizes!).

Transmission Initiated
Transmission ID: 000055
TFNation_2016
Operation: Sins of the Wreckers

TFNation 2016 may be just four days away but do not fall into the Decepticon trap of believing we are all out of surprises. There’s one nearby… real nearby…

We are thrilled to confirm that in collaboration with TFN guest Nick Roche, we are able to bring you the “Sins of the Wreckers” trade paperback, ahead of its release!

Somebody has kidnapped Prowl… but does anybody want him back? After a five year wait, it’s time to call upon the Wreckers once again in this highly anticipated sequel to “Last Stand of the Wreckers”.

Nick will have a limited number of the books available at his stall. So if you wish to grab the book before it hits stores AND get it signed by the writer and artist himself, this is the perfect opportunity!

If you are not lucky enough to nab a copy from Nick then fear not, TFNation will also have a run of books on hand. We will be giving them away all weekend as part of our free door prizes and various competitions we will be running! Why? Because we are so happy that you have all supported us through our first year, that we wanted to share the Wrecker love with you.

Four days people – get ready to Wreck and Rule at TFNation 2016!

Further transmissions to follow.

Next, make sure to drop by two of the features of the event, the Show Cars and The Forge. While the former needs no real explanation - though you can find more info here - the latter is similar to Artists' Alley, and will also include a good number of Seibertronians, such as hinomars19 and Demonology7789, and the ideator of the Lenten experiment. More here!

Take a look at the floor plan for the event right here, and if you're in Birmingham this weekend (19-21 August) make sure to drop by the AV desk to say hi to yours truly, too!

This year's auction will be held prior to the showing of Transformers the Movie on Friday at the Wichita Orpheum. TFExpo Special Guest Michael Bell will be on hand to help emcee, which should be a lot of fun. Various goods are being donated for the auction, but we can announce a VERY big one right now:

Titans Return Fortress Maximus!

That's right, thanks to a very generous donation from our friends at BigBadToyStore, and thanks to TFExpo 2016 sponsor Optibotimus for arranging it, TFExpo will be auctioning off a brand-new Hasbro Fort Max!

We have some more pictures of Masterpiece MP 11ND Dirge which was revealed at Shaghai's Cybertron Con 2016. The toy will be distributed by TTMall in Japan and Hasbro Asia for outside of Japan (hence its inclusion at the show). We see a pretty awesome shot of all the three coneheads together.
For anyone keeping score, this is the 19th use of the Masterpiece Seeker mold, including all the different retools, redecos and releases in Japan and the US since 2006. These pictures were brought to us by TF fan UranusDD.

We knew the Hasbro Asia release of MP 32 Optimus Primal would come with a skull mace/flail referencing the accessory from the original toy and we got to see this mace at the Cybertron Con. These phots were found on the Hobbybase Facebook page. You will notice that it is on an actual chain. It makes sense to see this accessory at this particular show since it is only available through Hasbro Asia, and not Takara. While Hasbro Asia releases of Masterpiece toys have been happening for years now, it's interesting to see how Hasbro is really appropriating the Masterpiece line in Asia by having them displayed and revealed at their shows and having the Hasbro logo proudly displayed on the cardboard at the base of the figure. Will you be getting this toy? And if so which release will you be getting, Takara or Hasbro Asia?
