It's too bad Soundwave doesn't really work nowadays. He was always my favorite. The cool voice and the tapes that turned into a bird and a cougar or whatever.

He would be a cell phone and Rampage and Lazerbeak would be micro SD cards.

Call me when Hasbro releases Zartan and the Dreadnoks as Cold Slither.

Not bad, not bad... clearly based on their G1 appearances. Not sure why they didn't go with an all-Autobot or all-Decepticon band though (or one of each).

That was pretty cool, seeing photos of 4 action figures posed in an air-guitar stance from many different angles. Maybe next they can show us some photos of forks sitting on a dinner table.

Whoa.. forks on a table? Let's not get unrealistic here.

No kidding. I know this is a thread about 80s nostalgia, but who the hell has eaten with a fork in the last few decades? I thought we were past that primitive nonsense.

I actually like what they did with him in Transformers Prime, turning him into a predator spy drone. Laserbeak looked weak however... He looked kind of like some kind of crappy bat or something.

My cynicism for the internet has maxed out. When I read this, my first thought was "do NOT do a GIS!"

fairly easy to make him work now, and Rampage and whatnot could actually be MicroSD cards in disguise

Wait a sec, that's totally unrealistic and unfeasible. Sure, you can have the pants pull down for the back half, but you can't take off Cobra Commander's helmet or hood for the front part of the spit without revealing how fugly he is.

You can always get the recent Masterpiece Soundwave. Bigger, more cartoon-accurate, super-articulated, and still a tape deck.

There was the Sound Label mp3 player version of Soundwave, but who uses SDminis anymore?

Then there was the Animated version, with a Laserbeak that turned into a guitar:

The original tap deck Soundwave could have been in the movies and it could have been a  bit of comic relief that didn't involve racist farting robots running around.
