Transformers News: New In-Hand Photos of Netflix Transformers Voyager Class Soundwave with Ravage and Lazerbeak

This Voyager Class Soundwave is a retool of Siege Voyager Class Soundwave, allowing him to resume his Tape Deck alt mode from the Generation 1 toyline/cartoon series. It's been pointed out by fellow Seibertron user, Wolfman Jake that the vestigal landing gear from the Siege alt mode on the arms now serve a new purpose by filling out the back of the new alt mode and allow the arms to snap in securely.

Ravage and Lazerbeak have also been slightly retooled and redeco'ed to better resemble their earth mode (most evident is Lazerbeaks head).

What do you think of these images? Will you be picking up this version of the iconic Decepticon? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I can only hope to find this and Bumblebee if things go smoothly in terms of finding them in-person. I don't want to face the same fate that happened with Beewun Prime and Siege Skywarp.

On secon thought, that's a Soundwave I can live without. Especially with the horrible back in tapedeck mode. Having the G1, the MP, and the Siege, that Netflix ER don't bring anything new.

I also have the G1, MP and Siege, and I will be getting this and selling the Siege version. The back of this one in tape deck mode doesn't bother me, as he'll always be facing forward on the shelf no matter which mode he's in. I was never really over for the Siege version, but it was better than nothing. And this one is better than the Siege one so it'll be picked up if I see it in store.

"Better" in the sense that if you want the most "G1" Generations Soundwave ever. On that perspective, it is the best, no doubt.


But for me, the Siege is "better" because he have his G1 bot mode while having a very original spaceship mode. That make him stand out. And if I want a tapedeck mode, I can always buy that upgrade kit. It's unfortunately quite expensive though.

I will not buy online with shipping and extra fees. But if I find that Netflix Soundwave live in store, it will be very hard to not impulse buy him.

The landing gear on the forearms still bugs me, especially when that plastic could've been used for panels to avoid hollow forearms.
I think the figure overall looks incredibly good...
I don't think this is the best we'll get for a G1 styled figure, but then I keep questioning, how long will it be before we get a non-gimmick, G1 Soundwave that's better than this?
And I'm so happy with my MP version, I don't know if I'm going to wait around much more for the "next better version". As I've said before, it's getting to that point for some of these other characters as well.

If you're willing, humor me and share your opinions on how soon we'll get better versions of some of these G1 characters. Oh, and I mean versions that are gimmick-free with the goal of G1, cartoon accurate appearances.

Don't know if I can sell him but I would absolutely sell the Siege version and get this while keeping Siege Soundblaster since those two being distinct from each other in ways besides paint will be nice especially since Soundblaster has been becoming more of his own character recently instead of an upgraded Soundwave.

While it's on my mind the "spaceship" mode that the Siege mold has becomes more cool to me when I imagine it more as a hovercraft that floats/hovers using "soundwaves" for transportation and I like Soundwave more as a ground vehicle anyways, I do the same thing with the Siege Reflector ship mode but with "lightrays" instead of sound.

ER Soundwave looks great but I already have the Siege version. Saving my money for Kingdom and 86 Studio Series :-D

But it's not really his G1 bot mode, because there's no tape deck parts showing due to his alt mode being something other than a tape deck. :-D

Oh yeah. This give more points to the Siege for his Cybertronian mode. He could also work as Bee Movie Soundwave I think. But if they ever make a SS BM Soundwave, I wonder what he'll look like. Especially in altmode.

SS Bee Soundwave would just be another Boom-Box.

That would make absolutely no sense.

I think that if they ever did a Cybertronian mode Soundwave from the Bumblebee movie, his alt mode would be similar to the War for Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron version.

That would be the most logical choice.plus the wheels can easily hide in the bot mode with the right transformation scheme.

Exactly, plus no doubt fans could put together a fan mode for his tape deck alt that he never took in the movie :lol:

Exactly as they did for the original deluxe WFC toy. It was so good that the fan mode was officialised in the sequel, FoC. ;)^

Here is the thing for me with Soundwave and any potential Blaster retool. I really don't need a tape deck alt mode anymore.

This feeling really started for me in Titans Return, where I would put the whole line out on my pool table for a battle. Then convert them all to alt modes so they could charge each other. Then realize that a boom box can't do crap in this scene, so I had to load Blaster onto Fort Max and Soundwave onto Trypticon. Then it hit me, a tape deck is a really dumb alt mode for the year 2020.

So as meh as Siege Soundwave's space barge might be, it is still more fun for me personally that a tape deck.

That was the bonus mode.

I would really dig a TRIPLE CHANGER Soundwave. Bot, cyber vehicle, kinda-boom-box.

At least it made it into the game's Soundwave boss fight (at 0:23):
