So now he doesn't have a hand-held weapon?

Shame. But there's always the first WFC Soundwave's weapon.... It'll be horribly out of scale, but it's better than nothing.

I did see that, but that's not necessarily what I mean.

So, according to that toy bio, Soundwave gets rebuilt by his minions as Soundblaster on an alien world.

If one were to take that as canon for the Aligned continuity, that would mean Soundblaster goes back to being named "Soundwave" at a later point prior to TF: Prime.

Music Label Soundwave's longer "wave bluster" gun might be a better match. Not sur if the squarish handle will fit into FOC SW's 5mm fists, though.

I asked that question a couple of times and couldn't get an answer...now we know and that sux! I do think over all it seems like both are decent figures but as always I'm curious about the Takara versions. I do wish they would have left the tips of the shoulder cannon's the same color as WFC SW. If we're lucky some 3rd party group will make a worthy weapon set for one of my fav :CON: to wield...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Sucks that I don't even have that. Or the money to get it. :-(

Yes. As a matter of fact, the way it's transformed here resembles how the Deluxe transforms.

Old news, really. >:oP

Except that it would be better to rotate those wheels upward so they aren't sagging on the ground. >:oP

At least it's close enough the game's version of the mode.

Oh, nuts. How far can they be rotated in this form? At least 90 degrees might look fine. ;)
