Although him being not all that tall brings up scale issues, especially because I planned to get voyager Starscream. Now I'm worried I should have bought the deluxe.

Soundwave twists an opponent's (and anyone else he's listened too; i.e. EVERYONE's) words, distracts them with Laserbeak, then launches a full smackdown. He doesn't simply shoot.

For those who prefer a good old fashioned pictorial review, a very nice one can be found at Transformers at the Moon by clicking here. We've mirrored a few images below, many more are available by following the ling.

He is pretty cool looking!
I thought he'd have gangly overly long arms as per the show but in-hand he aint too bad!!
As i have stated in other posts, which some fail to understand, these are Deluxe in sizing and sit well along side the CHUG range, as I am sure the Powerizers will man-up along side what we Transformers fans refer to as Voyager sizing!

Even though,I won't be buying this because I don't buy deluxes,basics,legends sized TF toys. I do think this TF Prime,soundwave to came out awesome in both modes.
I actually think TF Prime,Soundwave pulled off a better alien jet mode than megatron. I think soundwave pulled off a better robot mode than starscream.

Very sinister-looking and I actually do like the chicken-legs. It works quite well for this figure, I think.

I'm at a real crossroads with this line. It sounds like they're wonderfully engineered figures, but I'm just not diggin' most of the movie meets Animated look...so they'd probably just end up in a box in the closet.
His head's the Decepticon symbol. Pretty cool, if you ask me.

Um... Well... They're Deluxe sized, but due to their aesthetic, they most likely wouldn't fit in with CHUG all that well. I mean, to each their own, but I don't see the link.
Powerizers ARE Voyagers. Of course they'll "man-up along side them".
I'm still a tad confused by your whole idea. CHUG is a TF toy line. Prime is a TF toy line. Deluxe/Revealer are the same class used by all TF toy lines, just a different name. Voyager/Powerizers are the same class and used by various TF toy lines, just a different name.
The only way your idea would work is if you thought the size class was it's own toy line. Otherwise, you're just...well, I have no idea what it is exactly.

Yes its better than DOTM (thats not hard to pull off) but not by much. Yet another Soundwave ill have to pass on. Hes had suh a good run lately but now just seems to be going downhill.
I own DOTM Deluxe Class Soundwave. He's an excellent figure. Not perfect, but excellent. If he was in stores and people actually had him, they'd see what I mean. (C'mon Hasbro, WTH are you doing?!? Get these toys out there!)
And the robot mode? That's almost exactly what it looks like in the show. They did their best with him, can't complain too much.
That is, unless you don't like the show, so then your complaint is valid.

Certainly starting to see a pattern here though: the vast majority of the figures are amazing. The only ones that suck are the Robots in Disguise characters who've received a First Edition (except Vehicon, but I don't really care about that one).

Soundwave is freaking huge in the show, he's a tad taller than Starscream, I hope he gets a voyager release down the line so that he'll be better in scale with the rest.

I have to say, this Soundwave looks like he belongs with the Brestforce in Victory. Makes you wonder if there might be more of them.
