Plus, the TFP Soundwave was a completely different take on the character that was explored on the show. I heavily doubt there's gonna be a similar amount of fiction covering this; it's just a bit of a gimmick collaboration - so if you're selling it as Soundwave, it would probably make sense for it to be recognisable as Soundwave.

But with that head design and color scheme, how is it not recognizable as a sideline toy of Movieverse Soundwave?

Aren't all Soundwaves (BW excluded) inspired by G1 Soundwave in some way?

I actually see a pretty close resemblance between the SDCC Pad-Soundwave and the ROTF Soundwave toy the both have similar heads, they are both off-white in part the have the same shaped duel prong feet and some of the kibble on the ROTF one isn't that far away from the look of the winged backpack.

I look on it like this - it's a bit like when Rumble got decapitated and turned into a mobile phone.

Only that idea applied to Movie Soundwave.

I see some merit in him as a leader for the Real Gear Robots. he also has some resemblance *though less wacky* to the "Kitchen Crew" too (I.e. Ejector & friends).

I've ordered a gold one i'll see what he looks like with The Transformers Prime toys to when I get him - but I suspect if he's going to look good with anything it will be Movie toys.

OK My Gold Soundwave Pad arrived today. He's not so much gold as he is "Reefer yellow" or yellow Bronze.

He's heavier than I expected - I thought he'd be as light as a feather but he feels reasonably substantial.

He will totally fill the job that I had in mind for him which is to be the boss of the real gear Robots.

Overall he's very god aside from some very small nitpicks.

I would have liked his feet to peg together if feasible, not a huge issue though - his arm articulation is a little peculiar, and The Ratbat/Laserbeak drone could have done with more of an obvious face and feet - as it is it kinda works as a pseudo TF Prime Laserbeak drone I guess - but an upgrade kit would be nice to give him feet and a face.

If anyone finds somewhere that sells a clip on cover for 7" tablets that fits him I'd like one to cover up his robot parts in tablet mode.

He does have some pleasing subtle details on him like the paint in his torso groves that you can barely even see.

He's certainly easy to store being so thin.

Oh and UK customers who bought the gold one from the site selling them might like to know that they actually ship from the UK. which seems to suggest that site must have a UK portal - I don't mind that I ordered from the US site as it enabled me to get cashback on him too. oddly though the voucher codes I also had actually put his price up not down.

The gold one is a little cheaper but If you like the silver there not a huge difference in price so it seems. I wonder if they will make him in white and blue and black too ?

Image of Transformers Mi Power Bank Optimus from Hasbro and Xiaomi

Postby Va'al » Fri Jul 21, 2017 12:16 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
You will probably remember the Xiaomi Mi Pad Soundwave figure released last year for San Diego Comic Con - it looks like Hasbro has kept the license running for the company, as an Optimus Prime figure turning into a Power Bank has surfaced on the usual Weibo account. Check it out below, as we also included an image of the possible dock alt mode!

Uh. Not sure what to make of that. Not particularly appealing.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

His backpack looks big enough to hold a battery and the USB cord going to his sword does look real.

dragons wrote:Soundwave look better this looks bad

I'm of the opposite mind. Soundwave looks like a generic gold robot toy that they just named Soundwave for lack of anything better to call it. This actually looks like Optimus Prime in both design and color.

Seibertronian MadProject has sent along images of the newly revealed Hasbro x Xiaomi Optimus Prime Powerbank figure, as shown first here, revealing that the alt mode is indeed what we supposed it would be, and adding to the speculation that the power bank may in fact be functional - but you can check them out below for yourself, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
