This is one of my favorites

This is one of my favorites from the Prime toy line. I like how different he looks, the arms and legs might not be "traditional", but it works for me, at least. And I like how his head evokes the Decepticon insignia, like how the original Soundwave's head was the basis of the Decepticon symbol. And his posability is just top notch.

I love it too. Totally

I love it too. Totally original, visionary, and most of all alien robot design.

Its not that bad

I actually like the toy. While I do not feel it is a good representation of Soundwave, I think its still it among a handful of TF designs do not belong in the TF line. I really think their ascetic lends themselves to create their own anime with some slight retooling.

I have to agree with Josh

I have to agree with Josh here. Although Soundwave is my favorite Transformers character, this version is a total disappointment. I didn't even bother to pick it up. Everything that is cool about Soundwave is missing from this figure.
To me, this is not Soundwave. I'll be looking forward to MP-13.

Great Character, Okay Toy

This is a toss up, great character, but the toy lacks because of its scale and proportions.

Just what I always wanted; Soundwave as an anorexic aerial dildo.

You win first place for using

You win first place for using Soundwave, Anorexic, Aerial and Dildo in a sentence! Never thought those words could be combined to make sense together but you proved me wrong.

anorexic aerial

anorexic aerial dildo^_^!!!
This is an inspired Bay-former

We have a new transformer universe after the live action movies
this is another manifestation of it!!

Not our favorite G1 soundwave
But I would rather have this version than him as a Van, car or an ugly MP3 player

Wow, I totally disagree. The

Wow, I totally disagree. The only problem I had was with the legs, but I was able to get them to work. I had a fun time with this guy and I think he makes a fantastic, creepy robot toy. Lotta fun to play around with too; you can kinda use his arms as blades.

Ah well, to each his own.

I think props have to be given to them making a Prime Soundwave toy that is screen accurate to the cartoon, both in vehicle and robot mode.

Different strokes!

I love this figure myself. I only have a handful of Prime toys, but this is definitely one of the highlights for me. I guess if the G1 Soundwave is engrained, this one won't suffice. Having the legs mistransformed might not help this figures case at all.
