Well, being a staunch collector of all things Soundwave, I had to get this one. My expectations were not high, based on early photos and recent reviews and the best I can say is that Sonicron lives up to those low expectations. I transformed him once, but given the feel of the plastic and the tightness of some of the tabs, I don't think I'll risk breaking him by doing it a second time. The payoff isn't worth it anyway.

Despite the odd proportions, I do still like him as a display piece. Also, the leg joints on mine are much tighter than the ones in the videos, so getting him to stand has not been an issue. It might be because I've transformed him so little or perhaps the screws are a bit tighter on mine; maybe I just got lucky.

All in all, it's sad considering how nice the toy could have been, but he's unmistakably Soundwave, so he gets a spot on my shelf. Hopefully someone will take the same base design and do it right in the future.

While I don't care for their Soundwave, I am excited about their Not-Ravage transformer!

Some features weren't shown in the video review that Optimus shows in "his" review. Check out Optimus Prime's humorous review of BTS-04 Sonicron.


Omigod dude ... your video was hilarious. It's one thing to get a Transformers fan laughing, but it's a whole 'nother thing when you get someone who's not into our geekiness laughing. My wife thought your video was hysterical. We both got a kick out of watching it last night. Thank you!

On that note, after watching your video, I realized that I had the waist mistransformed on mine and didn't attach the arm storage piece to his back like you did. I took a few additional pics earlier tonight after watching your video.
