TF08.nets yizhy521 has updated his thread with new clearer images of the possible Movie Soundwave figure.

He seems to have taken size comparison images with what seems to be a box of cigarettes or a trading card deck holder. He also confirms in one post that it is in fact a satellite.

If this is the real deal - and I'm not saying that I believe it is -, then I seriously hope it is mistransformed.
It just looks bad.
Like Movie Leader Megatron bad.

If it is genuine... then I hope it's just a crap toy and the movie rendition looks far superior. Which it probably will, you can't judge a film character with a toy... especially if that's one of the smaller, cheaper ones (hell, maybe even a mock-up at this stage)

But yea... that alt mode looks broken, completely. True a Cybertronian satellite can look like pretty much anything but come on :?

Question still remains, if Soundwave is a satellite, this doesn't necessarily prove he has a robot form in the film; I'm thinking of Scorponok having that awkward robot mode in toy form.
True there could be flashbacks, him descending to Earth, or transforming in space Unicron style...

Who knows until we see some official concept art, or failing that, the trailer or the movie itself lol

are these pictures being taken under water or being made with the blurry effect?

Actually, yea, I shrunk the resolution in MS Paint by 50% and you can actually make it out a heck of a lot better. If anyone wants me to, I could send in all the photos at the smaller resolution or on of the admins/mods could do it. It actually does not look much like Prime's head OR Megatron's chest or anyone's feet now. It actually looks really cool! Though I agree, it could be the Optimus Prime/Jetfire combination. It suits, I guess.

If that is Soundwave thats horrible. Even if they get Welker to voice him i wont care. With the way things are going im done caring about this movie. There will be no redemption.

i would be very sad if that was soundwave.

Why does everyone have to bash something new that comes out? We haven't even seen at proper angles, we don't even know what it exactly looks like! Holy jeez! Be patient here people.

I keep seeing the Prime-head comment about the boards. But considering the 'ear'/crown kibble there and the apparent faceplate, they could easily be Bayverse tags to the more traditional/iconic Soundwave's head.

Hmm....looking at it, folks elsewhere have it right; It does have a Fast Action Battler quality to it..

If these pictures were taken a factory or office very quickly - it might explain the blurriness.

Hmm, I downsized it in MS Paint by 50% and it looks a heck of a lot better. I'm not sure if it's Soundwave, but I could sure see it as him. It also seems kind of kiddy, like (others have said before me) a fast action battler.

After viewing the pics all I can say is that it was taken using a cell phone camera since they look terrible. What it is is anybody's guess.

it could be megatron's new body. If anything - it has to be some kind of prototype b/c these new movies toys will not be out for another 5 or 6 months (april/may) --presuming it'll be a June movie release date.

It looks like it has all the coolness of Movie Mega Megatron (i.e. None). So much like the rest of the Movie line: PASS!

Oh, please, don't let that be Soundwave. There's no blue color, where's the faceplate, the opening chest is not there, what's with all that kibble, oh please, please, please no. Don't rape my childhood again. Take me, but leave my childhood alone.

I'm happy to see that other folks noticed the FAB style that this thing has. It totally reminds me of my youngest sons FAB Megatron. Regardless of picture res. and the fact that I try to keep a somewhat open mind about this stuff, I just cannot buy into this one. I hope I'm wrong but the BS alarm in the back of my head is buzzing like mad.

any TF -in which the first pictures come out at this low resolution is most probably a hoax.

I hope this is remotely real, I'd love to see some of Soundwave.
And it doesn't look totally terrible. :grin:

Saying that pic looks especially good or bad is like looking at an ultrasound of a baby and saying the baby is good looking or ugly.

Although in this case, I'd go for the latter.

Yizhi of TF08.net has posted two more blurry photos of what may potentially be the "Revenge of the Fallen" Soundwave figure.

Well the new robot mode picture kinda sorta look like the concept picture of Soundwave from a few weeks ago...

Someone get this guy a better camera though.

looks like the pictures that are supposed to be of the alt-mode are just the figure laying face down so its not even transformed.
for all we know it could be jetfire or some other character.

Not to be cynical but I find it hard to believe in this day & age, there would be a picture taken at a super low-resolution even on a cellphone.

Just go to the movie news link at the top of the page, and then type Soundwave in the search prompt... Takes you to all of our Soundwave movie news...the toy pics...the spoiler about the concept art, etc.

Firstly, you guys need to stay on topic. Secondly, maybe this will clear up some of the confusion. I resized the image. Its smaller, but also clearer.

It is not a bionicle that much is for sure. I know bionicle inside and out as I've been a fan for 7 years now. Its also not a kitbashed Movie Megatron toy. I am leaning towards the fact that this is either an offbrand toy like the M.A.R.S stuff or it's a fast action battler version of Movie SW. Either way, it'll be a while before we find out for sure.

I'm betting that this could be a "sneak preview" figure. Just doesn't look like enough to be a full blown deluxe.

I grow tired of this figure. If we get some clear images, maybe I'll strt believing it

Posted by DMSL on November 14th, 2008 @ 9:33am CST
It's white and looks like Megatron from the first movie, so i doubt this is Soundwave.

Yizhi521 of TF08.net has posted yet another, and this time slightly clearer, photo of what appears to be the "Revenge of the Fallen" Soundwave figure. In this new image, you can clearly see three orbs on his chest as well as the "grill" form and "lights" on his stomach that ressemble those seen on the supposed Soundwave concept design leaked earlier. Though writer Roberto Orci specifically stated that Soundwave is not a pickup truck, there does seem to be some connection between this figure's design and the leak Soundwave "truck" design.

See the image here or mirrored below, along with the supposed concept art for Soundwave's truck mode.

This alleged Soundwave figure seems more and more like Bigfoot-in-the-freezer.
It looks interesting in the first fuzzy pictures.
Clearer pictures make it look really ugly, but realistic.
And in the end, it will probably turn out to be a hoax.

I vote that this is a scratchbuilt custom made to look like that concept art.
Thus, it is a hoax.

Otherwise, I hope that this is just Soundwave's Cybertronian form rendered in Legends class or something.
If that were the case, he'd hopefully get a decent Earth form.
Just saying...
