The infamous G1 Soundwave is now available for pre-order for $29.99 at It looks like he will be available just in time for Christmas later this year with a December release date. There are no official pictures available yet of the toy or packaging. The toy will be a Soundwave colored repaint of the Japanese exclusive Soundblaster toy which will be able to hold both of the cassettes which come packaged with Soundwave (Laserbeak and Ravage).

Product Description

It's a world where things are not what they seem. It's a world of heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons who are known as The Transformers! You hold in your hands a reproduction of one of the most popular Generation 1 Transformers characters of all time. Identical to the original toy, this convertible action figure lets you reproduce all the action of the sinister Soundwave. It is said Soundwave can hear a fly sneeze. Uses anything he hears for blackmail to advance his status. Opportunist. Despised by all other Decepticons. Sensors can detect even lowest energy radio transmissions. Able to read minds by monitoring electrical brain impulses. Acts as radio link for others. Locates and identifies Autobots, then informs Decepticons. Carries a concussion blaster gun. Often target of retaliation by his comrades.

A couple of new Transformers Movie pictures from member Joey Germani. If I can make out the characters correctly in this diagram of a film-shoot setup, I believe the Transformers are as follows from top left to bottom right: Megatron, Frenzy (look by Megatron's left left), Starscream (it looks like there are 3 Transformers behind him on your left - look for the white stands that these prop pieces are on), Ratchet (to the right of Starscream next to the building ... though I'm not 100% sure), Bonecrusher (??? - bottom left corner), Bumblebee and Jazz. If I have any of this information incorrect, please post in this thread what it should be and I'll update the news story. Enjoy!

Car Manufacturer Chrysler have begun to air a new radio advert in the Netherlands for their new Grand Voyager featuring a 'take off' of the orignial G1 Transformers 'More than Meets the Eye' theme tune!

As part of their advertising campaign for the Grand Voyager Chrysler are marketing the car as able to "easily "transform" into storage space. From MPV to van in a flash!". The theme has been rerecorded in dutch with new lyrics referring to the car and its features but it is clearly the Transformers theme tune and even features the classic G1 transformation sound!

Thanks to Jasper we can both hear the advert and read a translation of the lyrics below:

Grand Voyager

Seats in the floor

From MPV to van, transformed in a flash (transform sound)

The Grand Voyager

Seats in the floor

Grand Voyager

(voice: discover the new unique "stow and go" system at the Chrysler dealer. Cause seeing is believing. Chrysler. Inspiration comes standard)

You can download the audio to this file by clicking here: Grand_Voyager_Transformers_25.mp3.
