Soundwave 1st look

01.29.2009

The cool peeps over at "Empire Online" have got our very first look at Decepticon Soundwave from Michael Bay's upcoming warring robots sequel TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN. Actually, it's the toy version that's based on the film version but it's Soundwave nonetheless. They have pictures of both his robot mode and his extra-terrestrial plane mode, likely before he assimilates a high end stereo or something. Click on any of the partial pics below to see both of them in full. The Decepticons continue to go at it with the Autobots on June 26th.

I get that he can't be a microcassette recorder, but don't make him a fucking jet. Use thundercracker, starscream, etc for that. Make him something else. a humvee with a radar dome, i don't care, just something in the field of what he did - Counter- Intelligence Communications Officer

The thing I had the most problem with in Transformers was the fact that when they transform, it's nothing but a cyclone of metal! There's a freakin' BILLION tiny pieces of metal spinning to and fro, like some kaleidascope... And then when they were finished transforming, they just looked too complex. I'm not saying it "makes no sense" or anything like that; I'm just saying I hated that look.

AND I hated the fact that the camera shook so damn much that you couldn't see the Transformers

AND I hated the fact that the camera shook so damn much that you couldn't see the Transformers anyway! "Oh, there's a lot of motion on the screen! This must be exciting! Gee, this movie is good... look at all the pretty colors!"

Who cares if they make another? ...Or rather, who cares if Bay makes another?

I hope soundwave eventually turns into one of Trucks that have boom boxes attached to the back. They're usually associated with a radio station and such.

FIRST-TIME FAN

I've never watched the cartoon series or played with the action figures, so I kinda like to thank Micheal Bay for introducing me to the Transformers universe in a cool way. If it's new to me, it's new to me.

Get over your rant, gayzilla. If it does incorporate some stuff from the 80s series into modern times, that's fine by me.

Are You People Serious?

Does anyone remember the original Transformers cartoon?
What was is about? Compelling story telling? No
Deep Emotion driven Characters? No
Sweet looking robots that had even sweeter battles and could also turn into cool shit? Yes

Seriously, the movies capture the true spirit of Transformer; Cool robots with huge over the top action battles.
Shut up, sit back, and just have fun, like Hasbro indented.

I'm depressed. This Soundwave looks kinda cool but I still prefer the old one. Where the hell are Laserbeak all the other cool tapes gonna come out from? Sadly it's Bay, which means I'll have to endure it.

Fits right in with the theme of the rest of the robots. Were you people seriously expecting him to be 50ft tall robot with a tape deck on his chest? Like some of the others have suggested the only thing important they have to nail for Soundwave is his voice (and *Maybe* his cassettes as Lazerbeak, Rumble and Ravage were fun). Get over it already.

Soundwave is the s**t next to Starscream! I'm really looking forward to this and so what if the dinobots aren't going to be there, coz a robotic animal would TOTALLY defeat the whole "Robots In Disguise" premise.

Personally, I never thought the dinobots were cool in the 1st place.

No more Dinobots!

Soundwave is awesome. And I need some Ravage, too. Did you see that it was confirmed today that there WON'T be Dinobots in the film? [link]

People can't accept change. Me being a huge fan boy, I love the look of soundwave here. The only thing I want out of soundwave is that badass voice of his. If they do that, it works for me.

Boy some people have really altered memories when it comes to Transformers, I have recently been re-watching the cartoon series to get ready for the movie and Michael Bays take is COMPLETELY in line with tone of the cartoon. Including Optimus saying "my bad". Optimus was always trying to learn earths customs from young spike, including current (well 80's current) slang and "my bad" is keeping in line with that. Like when he says "stick it in Neutral Megatron, your not going anywhere" in the

Including Optimus saying "my bad". Optimus was always trying to learn earths customs from young spike, including current (well 80's current) slang and "my bad" is keeping in line with that. Like when he says "stick it in Neutral Megatron, your not going anywhere" in the second episode or "that how the kids would say...awesome" in season 2. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not remembering the series correctly.

And yeah, it makes much more sense for Megatron to turn into a little gun that can be used by his subordinate who is always trying to off him. Or have robots land on earth in 2007 and all turn into boxy cars from the 80's yeah, thats cool. I call out all you "fans" as not really fans, you have apparently not watched the cartoon lately.

Even the entire premise of the cartoon was a flawed plot-hole by incompetent writers, robots who are millions of years old need to take over oil rigs and power plants because they were never capapable of Nuclear fission, fussion or solar power. Energy is one of the most abundant things in the universe. If you can accept the idiocy of the 80's cartoon, than you should be tolerant of the same in the movie.

ATROCIOUS!

This is almost as bad as Megatron's design in the first one, not that any of the robots' designs were even half decent. I'm pissed, I am so sick of Hollywood and it's bullshit! I'm also so sick of fans and you movie watchers who blindly accept anything H-wood puts on the screen! WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! Michael Bay and the studios don't give a fuck about you or Transformers!! The studios don't care if the films are actually artistically good, all they care about is getting your MONEY!!!

Complaining is what fanboys do!

Fanboys complain because Transformers, like many other properties, is a mangled hunk of fake posing as Transformers. Somewhere along the line it became a good idea to turn beloved franchises into mass market mindless bullshit for anyone BUT the fans. It's a spit in face. The 1986 animated film was made for FANS (and to sell toys) and it was great! AND it had transformers as lead characters as opposed to irritating over-glorified cameos.

booo

Looks overly techy like all the other poorly designed Tformers. And where are the cassette tapes supposed to go in that thing? As long as they get the voice right who cares, this franchise has gone full retard already
