Title: Blog #1863: Toy Review: Transformers: Authentics Alpha Class Soundwave

Transformers: Authentics Alpha Class Soundwave


Vehicle Mode: Soundwave’s vehicle mode looks great. He is an armored vehicle similar to his alternate mode in Transformers: Cyberverse. For an Authentics toy, the paint job is pretty good. The windows are painted, which is rare with Hasbro these days, and they even painted the inside of his radar dish. I would have liked a few more paint apps, headlights, taillights, etc, but for an Authentics toy, he’s not bad.

Robot Mode: In robot mode Soundwave looks pretty good. I like the head sculpt, which seems more like the G1 toy than the G1animation. Paint apps are fine. It would have been nice if he had a gun, but that’s probably asking for too much. The one thing that bugs me is the wheels on his shoulders. If those wheels could fold back and fill out his shoulders he would be a pretty spot on G1 Soundwave. Those wheels kind of ruin that a little, but they aren’t too bad.

Overall: This is a petty decent toy. I had to overpay on eBay, but certainly if you can get him at retail, I highly recommend him.

Thanks for reading!
