Vehicle Mode: Soundwave’s vehicle mode is clearly inspired by Generations Voyager Fall of Cybertron Soundwave. It looks fine, but the toy has some major design issues. It is very hard to get his body lined up in vehicle mode. He has ball and socket hips which don’t want to move properly into place. Worse yet is his ball and socket elbows. No matter what I do I can’t get both his arms begged in to the vehicle sides.
Robot Mode: He makes up for his vehicle mode flaws in robot mode. He looks great. I love the colors. I just wish he had a more G1 inspired head sculpt.
Overall: Not bad, but I wouldn’t say he’s a must.
