Gearslide wrote:Kinda of hard to tell, but that definitely looks like Machine Wars Soundwave is using Generations Perceptor's mold.
I've been pushing that idea for a while. However, there are two key problems therein:
In the comic itself he looked a bit more like the original toy, only with a slightly different color scheme. He was taller than Megaplex to boot, whereas the RTS Perceptor mold is significantly smaller than the Prime Dreadwing mold.
As for the RTS mold itself, to make it into MW Soundwave would require a very heavy retooling, not just the head, but also the shoulder cannon, converting into a missile of some sort. Not completely necessary to make it look like Soundwave, mind...
As for the comic cover itself, I really like it! Now if only Starscream and Soundwave actually DID anything in the story...

Besides, this artwork is meant to correlate the three top Decepticons with each of their clones. MW Soundwave is a clone of G1 Soundwave in this story, rather than being the same guy in a new form (sadly ).
