I’ve been sitting on this for a little while. Obviously.
I have a backlog of toys that need to be opened and reviewed. Out of the six or so Transformers I have on deck, this is the one I was most anxious to get to. Soundwave here, like a few others, is in his Cybertronian mode(like the others, I believe this is based on the version in “The War for Cybertron” video game).
And he looks freakin’ sweet!
While in robot mode, he is reminiscent to his G1 look. But in his alternate mode, that’s not the case. Just look.
It does look pretty intimidating. If I didn’t know that this was a Transformer, I would think that it was a retooled Thundertank(which is awesome). This isn’t as iconic as his G1 walkman mode, but it’s still very cool. As is this…
His gun and shoulder cannon can be stored behind his chest/windshield. Very cool indeed.
I rounded up the rest of my Soundwaves for a group shot, just because I thought it would be fun. But I’ll let you be the judge.
