Yizhi521 of TF08.net has posted yet another, and this time slightly clearer, photo of what appears to be the "Revenge of the Fallen" Soundwave figure. In this new image, you can clearly see three orbs on his chest as well as the "grill" form and "lights" on his stomach that ressemble those seen on the supposed Soundwave concept design leaked earlier. Though writer Roberto Orci specifically stated that Soundwave is not a pickup truck, there does seem to be some connection between this figure's design and the leaked Soundwave "truck" design.

See the image here or mirrored below, along with the supposed concept art for Soundwave's truck mode.

This alleged Soundwave figure seems more and more like Bigfoot-in-the-freezer.
It looks interesting in the first fuzzy pictures.
Clearer pictures make it look really ugly, but realistic.
And in the end, it will probably turn out to be a hoax.

I vote that this is a scratchbuilt custom made to look like that concept art.
Thus, it is a hoax.

Otherwise, I hope that this is just Soundwave's Cybertronian form rendered in Legends class or something.
If that were the case, he'd hopefully get a decent Earth form.
Just saying...

i real hope this isnt the full toy, i want soundwave to be a triple changer at least the bot mode is horrible. i want car former or a pickup former, not a cybertrnian statlite on its own. me want chevy or dodge if it could. :sad:

Could it be that they ditched the Soundwave-is-a-truck idea AFTER they made some concept art for it?

judging from this new picture, i don't think the alt mode is a pick up truck... if you look at the "grill" area you'll see it looks like the central blue orb looks to be attached to it and it doesn't look like it bends... so unless that piece sticks straight up in the air in truck mode, i doubt it's a truck.

That is definately Soundwave!

I also know that it is not Bionicle, I have also been a fan for many years.

I like the head sculpt...overall, it isn't a bad fig at all. Would love to see some alt mode pics to verify. It just doesn't look like it transforms much...maybe it is a FAB or something like that...I like the color combo too...

I also agree with the idea put forth earlier about his truck mode getting scrapped after the concept was made. Could explain the color change too...

the movie art looks kinda weird with all those eyes (or whatever they ar), but there's clearly some carmode in there, chevroletgrille and the wheels, so i'm still thinking triple changer sattelite/truck/bot

the toy? thats simply ugly, like someone glued a soundwave-like head on a bionicle....

The colors look bad. I hope it's just a prototype or I'll be doing some serious repaints next year.

I guess those blue circle things are where the soundwaves will come out of or minions. :-?

Okay, I'm not too sure exactly what it is and I don't know if it's Soundwave but my bet is that it definitely is a new TF for ROTF and it looks damn awesome, I reckon. If this figure is as good as it seems, I'd be happy to own it.

ok new to the boards!i've been reading these forums since the first movie but this is the topic that made me sign up to post on these boards...so heres what i think not to be blunt but this new pic is clearly not megatron and the figure is by far not made of megs spare parts, let that thought die. i have all of megatrons movie figures from FAB all the way to premium megs and not one even comes close to resembling any part of that pic..i think everyone associates it with megs because its a grey figure with grey legs and arms...when we say it dont look like it transforms much well your right he's a satellite, how difficult of a transformation can there be for a satellite..im guessing its compairable to the optimus and starscream protoforms figures..remember how those where the special movie characters when those two where released.. they where simple figures ,not much detail or paint aps..i think they will do the same thing with soundwave and another un-named autobot..release the satellite soundwave as a deluxe protoform before the rest of the figures come out like a teaser. soundwave was the first transformer i ever got when i was a kid im 30 now he's deffinatley my fav and if this is his cybertron "protoform" figure im good with that..just think what his voyager or leader class will look like..

Even after seeing the new "clearer" picture i still think he looks like crap. The head looks kinda like a Soundwave head but its not enough. Not to mention the color. Why do they feel the need to ruin our favorite characters? First Megatron now Soundwave. Hell im stull waiting for a purple or pink Rodimus cause i know they wont make him red or call him HotRod just to piss us off some more. And i still fear for Ravage.

Seconded! Welcome aboard! Well thought out post too! I hadn't thought about the possibility of a protoform figure...that's a definite possibility... :-?

This is what I was expecting for Soundwave. Even though you may not like it, you can't be surprised by the style. Quite frankly, I am surprised that the head even resembles G1 Soundwave.

Posted by YRQRM0 on November 15th, 2008 @ 7:12pm CST
Now I see it!!! Yes, I finally believe it's soundwave, thanks to those concept art comparisons. Plus, I can see his red visor thing that I was looking for in the blurr pictures.

Yeah, I mentioned that protiform/sneak peek theory the other day when this first posted. This figure, with it's cruder transformation and lack of detail screams early release figure to me.

Still looks like legos though.

To be perfectly honest, I will not say a bad word about what the bots have looked like so far. I didn't have any gripes about any of them.

As long as they get the voice to sound good (not necessarily identical to G1) I'm ok with whatever the new Bayformers look like.




side note: I don't intend to de-rail, but this question has been in my head since I started checking this site...

The green chevy has already been named "Tracks" per this site...Any chance the red one is Cliffjumper? sorry if this has already been asked and answered...

it is an OK fig but to me not "a dear got it sucks!" fig if it is real and if it is even sound wave i will get it.

Posted by Zek Patterson on November 18th, 2008 @ 9:52pm CST
Looks about right I suppose...the concept is clearly not the same as it has a chevy grill in its tum tum. I have no problems with any movie bots. The cons color schemes are just to grey tho. But no biiiig problems.

It's real. They started on Movie toys in/or around August and the first was Leader-class. If it isn't Leader-class it's a big Voyager and they're well into production already, also satellites are pretty damn big in real life. This is Soundwave though from what I am told.

I like the mold for the Fig and the movie but he looks like Soundblaster in the drawing. HE needs mor BLUE!!!!! and his face doesn't look like he has his face plate up maybe it pops up like Prime's. other than that he looks awsome.

I don't know, the mechanical monotone was a big part of Soundwave, what made him recognizable. I think they need to stick with the monotone, but they can probably drop stuff like 'Soundwave: superior'.
