Notified by fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade, we checked in with AllSpark user SwiftEagle who reports a Transformers: Robots in Disguise Warrior class Soundwave variant found. The new version has some added plastic to the otherwise entirely lightpiped facesculpt, adding the traditional faceplate, and a different pattern on the scanning sticker. Check it out for yourselves in the images below!

Just found at Target in CT. The packaging datestamp is 70161, the same as the plate-less version on the pegs with him.

It's a new addition to the plastic of his face.

A target exclusive perhaps? Like the battle masked Megatronus?

While we have seen a video review of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Activator Soundwave, with Laserbeak - from the Combiner Force line - we now also have a pictorial quick review from our friend Matt over in Japan! You can check out comments and images below!

Fun figure!

When you attach Laserbeak, his side guns pop out.

Also, when you roll him in vehicle mode the side guns go back and forth. Very cool!

Not much in the articulation department but...he does have some knee and arm bends.

You know, those speakers on his shoulders remind me of his Animated incarnation

Is the box any different? Any paint apps? I've already got the base model but
I'm interested to know if his is the only detail.

They might, but they look more like speakers to me

Meh! i think i'll stick with my Warrior Class CF Soundwave

Looks okay, but I wish there was a way to attach Laserbeak to Soundwave's chest. A way to use the Activator gimmick in robot mode, or at least fold away the guns, would be nice too.

They are all different - I don't know how different but I've had to look through a lot over the months and I've hardly ever seen 2 the same.

For example I looked through 7 Warrior Windblades to find the one with a straight logo and each logo was unique.

Or Compare this Soundwave to the others shown :

Is it new sculpting? I was under the impression that the mask was always there, they just didn't paint over it so it would match his Prime look (the added paint matches the package art).

I thought about that too when writing the story, but the person who found it said it was a new piece of plastic - so I don't know, is the answer here. :-?

he does look ten times better with a face plate but the alt mode is still horrible. Looks terrible in general and just doesnt fit the character at all. But from the looks of the picture its a retool, the faceplate looks to be attached to the head and not just painted on. Plus if it was paint why would they use blue and not the grey thats on the arms and legs?

Tell me, what the hell is the logic behind that mask? Does Soundwave's face-protecting visor not conceal his face enough?

It just wasn't enough protection against rabid G1 fanboys, I'm afraid :(
