Tformers.com has a new image of TF:ROTF Soundwave which gives us our first look at it's size. It seems to be around Voyager class, oh did we mention that he's posed next to G1 Soundwave? Well now you know!
The image has a watermark reading DAVE'S TOYLET but the website this belongs to is still to be found.

See the image by clicking here.

And we also have a very clear close-up of his face, courtesy of S250!

Voyager? G1 Soundwave is about the size of a current voyager and this guy looks considerably smaller unless you consider those wing things. I'm still going with deluxe protoform.

He might be a Voyager toy, not because of his height but because of the overall mass of the toy. Blackout was no bigger than a deluxe figure, but he was bulky and lots of parts. Soundwave may be short, but it looks like he has too much extra stuff to be a deluxe figure.

And don't forget this nice close-up of his face, courtesy of S250!

It might just be me but it looks like the deluxe size of TF. I'm w/Zero-Kaiser and El Duque. :-?

Actually he looks more like a Voyager now. I mean yesterday we had pics of his back that show us that it is massive then we have his wing things this guys has more mass then any other deluxe. I'm re-updating the article.


Skowl, that pic is awesome!

I love the headscuplt for Soundwave. It's very G1-ish with a mix of movie designs. I really don't think we should get angry over this. We may yet see another class movie Soundwave figure in a larger size. Hasbro knows how popular Soundwave has been, historically. They gave Brawl a leader-class toy when he was released as a deluxe originally. I can easily see Soundwave being made a voyager-class figure as well, if that is in fact a deluxe class.

Who knows, it's hard to tell anymore. Like someone pointed out Blackout is pretty small for a voyager, then you've deluxe TFA Lockdown to towers over a lot of voyagers. I'm hoping this is an early release deluxe protoform figure like Prime and Starcream from the last movie.

Look! Here is a shot of the new Shockwave toy for the movie.
It looks a bit mis-transformed, but still I think it's a great mold!
You know the Gee-Wun whiners are going to be critical, but nothing makes them happy.

The face implies Soundwave without being a carbon-copy of the G1 look. Very nice.

I'm from the G1 era and I have no problem with the mold. I think making his alt mode a satellie is a good idea. And I appreciate the G1-ish face mold.

At least the head is kind of close to the orginal Soundwave... I'm still a bit leery with all the new designs though. I was so hoping the last movie that the mysterious boombox that turned out to be Frenzy would be Soundwave... oh well. I suppose I should just be happy that Soundwave will be in this movie... now all we need is Shockwave! XD

TF08.net has posted more images of the new "Revenge of the Fallen" Soundwave figure.

If you are a member of Yizhi521's forum, you can see the images here.

I guess that sort of looks like a satellite. They can get away with a lot with his alt mode since satellites vary so much in their appearance.

You have got to be kidding me, why is he a deluxe? Why not voyager or leader? Can't Hasbro for once make a line with figures that are to scale?

*Insert girly squeal*
I can't say I can complain.
Liking the resemblance, and the unique alt.

Im not liken it. Looks like some kind of anime robot reject. So if theres no tapedeck thing then where does Ravage eject from? Actually i dont want to know.

Id say deluxe. I dont think he has enough weight to be voyager. Voyager animated Megatron is about the size of a deluxe but he's heavy. Lockdown in robot mode is bigger but is still a deluxe cause of his mass. So im saying this ones a deluxe.

According to the size comparisons with Bumblebee and Barricade from the first movie, this is definitely a Deluxe. Yes, it's bulkier than they are, but it's also significantly shorter than other Deluxes.

10:1 it's a "protoform"

I hope Dave doesn't drop him down the toylet.

That is not very appealing. I say that not because I hate the look of the figure but it looks stale....the whole movie line kinda blends together in blah and this toy fits right in. I'll buy it though, gotta support a soundwave toy.

Much as I hate to admit it about a Bayformer, that does actually look kinda cool...

Oh I don't know about that. 3 of the latest 10 news stories on Seibs are dealing with ROTF Soundwave so my chances are pretty good to hit it right!

This guy looks AWSOME!!:grin: But the earth mode is hopefully going to be a ultra or even a leader class!

One of the better Soundwave's for sure.

I like the headsculp, its very Soundwavy.

Also I hope that Soundwave is part of a Protoform preview assortment. The Prime and Starscream were actually some of my favorite movie figures.

I'm sorry, but my vote goes for the worst alt mode ever.

The bot is OK.

As a deluxe protoform, it's fine, and nice blend of the movie and Cybertron styles. I won't get it, since I only get one toy per character, but I'm not gasping in disappointment the way I would be if this were the main toy. Not my thing, but not bad, and the face looks enough like Soundwave that we can recognize him.

Don't like it...any chance they're throwing out false info like with the movie, or in this case figures, to throw people off and they'll release the actual cool Soundwave at the appropriate time? :lol:

That's not Soundwave! That's DC Transformers Batman who transforms into Brother Eye!

In all seriousness I like it. I'm probably going to pick this up when it hits shelves. I hope he has another form though and not just as a satellite.

Dang G1 Soundwave totally dwarfs this version! Now, IMHO, this incarntion of Soundwave isn't too bad. I can tollerate it. The face still looks like Soundwave, & that makes me happy. Now, all we need is for Frank Welker to voice him & we'll be good.

I'm used to the look of the movie stuff and I can dig this.

I'll be getting him.

It is a bit on the teensy side though. :?

That is a Predator wannabe triple changer. Soundwave it is not. Give me the orginal Soundwave any day. Even if it is an outdated tape deck.

Looks small.. Could it be one of those Fast Action Battlers??
I dunno.
