The metallic paint is so shiny it almost looks like satin.

Though, it also has an eerie green tint to it that looks off.

Are you sure it's paint and not chrome?

Yah the gold chrome definitely has a slight greenish tint to it.

I have it in hand (Great set, especially on sale). The Chrome is definitely greenish. I totally had it displayed in a room with lime green paint, so I wasn't sure at first whether it was the actual chrome. It is though, it looks a tad green in any light

Did you baaaah-y into the Platinum edition Transformers Masterpiece reissues? Or were you feeling a bit sheepish about the whole thing? Well, the following gallery might make you change your mind - take a look at the latest offering in the Year of the ____ cycle of re-editions of previous toys, featuring the master communicator himself and this year's Chinese zodiac symbol: MP Soundwave and fellow cassettes, under a gold, white and translucent deco for Year of the Goat!

Featuring all the accessories of the original Hasbro release of the mold, it also includes the five cassette [strike]minions[/strike] friends for the synaesthetic boom-box, the two birds Laserbeak and Buzzsaw, double trouble and practically indistinguishable Frenzy and Rumble and straight-talking Ravage. They all share the same redeco features, plus the reworked Decepticon symbol depicting part of the Chinese ideogram for Year of the Goat. Click on any of the images below for the full gallery!

Does Soundwave dream of electric sheep?

I keep trying to tell myself that this works for some people, and that to those people, it looks nice, but the more I see it, there's no getting around it: that thing is fugly. Clear and orange? WTF??

Now, if it was white and orange, where the white replaced the clear, I'd be very tempted to buy it. The orange looks great on it. Combined with the clear, however, it does look odd.

I agree. Creamsicle Soundwave would be better than 'I think I'm a test shot' Soundwave

They should have given it clear yellow plastic for a cool frozen piss effect...

Soundwave would look much better if he was done up like his Cassettes.

Hasbro didn't use a clear image of the symbol that represents Year of the Goat. From my Google searches, it looks like it's supposed to be the Earthly Branch symbol. If I used the incorrect symbol, please correct me so that I can update the spotlight image accordingly.

The characters for goat are 山羊, at least in Japanese. Chinese has different ones: 色鬼. The latter has the main meaning in both cases.

Except those aren't the symbols that Hasbro used on the Year of the Horse package. The symbol they used last year came from the Chinese Zodiac symbols which are different than the actual words.

OK, that's a weird glitch...

Anyway, the character for Sheep 羊 seems to be the closest match, it's just highly stylised I'm guessing. Two disconnected stripes on top, one vertical line and three horizontal.

I updated it based on the stylized images at this link ...

If you force a refresh in your browser, it will update with the new symbol.
