It would be a homage to how he kept them all inside his chest before, like they were one unit.


That would be nice. I like this idea and my Satellite idea. The solar wings of the satellit could come off and beam to earth as cassette tape shape decepticons. His chest could send a laser beam from space to do one hit kills or something.

Those are good ideas. I could see a satellite.

Only problem with that would be how would he be able to engage in combat? Would he just be comm and ops?

Roughrider hit on my idea, have all the cassette forms just transform together into soundwave. An he would just let one or 2 at any given time detach off of him to go for recon, stealth, ect.
Or even have them all split apart in the middle of combat to slip out of a hold then reform back into soundwave in favorable position.
But there shouldnt be any cassettes or cassette player forms as cassettes are out dated as someone pointed out to me, LOL. It was cool seeing that one transforming into a boom box in the movie. Nice little nod to soundwave
I always like soundwave the most from the cartoon, his voice is what made the character. They gotta have him in the next movie

Pretty much, Soundwave was always the comm and ops kinda bot.

Soundwave was always able to fight, he just stayed in robot mode and either used weaponry or sound...waves. That said, if he was a satellite he could just fire...beams?

Soundwave is iconic because of what he was, that cool tape deck, and that's out of date now. If it's just gonna be Soundwave by name, they may as well not use him.

exactly, and the hardcore fanbase hated and was offended by Bay for this...slapping the name Sounwave and other characters on anything that bears little to no resemblence to the character at all, yet here we are talking about Soundwave being a satellite or spy plane? if its just for the sake of having a character named Soundwave thats radically different from what he was, its not worth it...cuz he will be different...ex// Starscream, Megatron...

I actually thought the only problem with Starscream was that he didn't get any time really, which is bad for such a character KNOWN for his character. He's not known as just being "The one who turns into a jet.", otherwise they could have had any of the seekers, he's known for being the sneaky second in command, that's what made him who he was, but there wasn't any of that.

There probably will be though, as he survived.

Michael Bay is good at making big budget movies about over-the-top things, filled with explosions, so honestly...who better to direct Transformers? Michel Gondry?

It's not a G1 movie, it's a G1 INSPIRED movie. I just went to see Transformers, not G1 Transformers.

They can't continue that with many sequels though, there needs to be more Transformers action.

i have no problems with the movie myself im just trying to speak for the hardcore fans. The Optimus Flames, the starscream bird legs thing...i thought starscream was kind of sneaky when he was perched on a few buildings away while megatron tried to get the allspark from Shia. Im just saying, i wanna see characters done properly, Blackout had a lot of names slapped to that him, like Soundwave, Vortex, Incinerator, even early production called him Devastator.

Like portraying characters somewhat close to what they were based on...but it is their personalities that make them who they are

In all honesty, if Optimus Prime having flames is that big a problem to people, then it's ridiculous. So what? He looked amazing. If you have a problem with the movie, you should have a problem with every other TF series that ISN'T G1. Optimus Prime had flames on his truck, big deal. Beast Wars made him a gorilla called Optimus Primal, that's a sight worse.

Transformers is a franchise with many continuities and variations. It's not all meant to be G1.

People don't want to see characters done "properly", in that case. They want characters done exactly like their G1 counterparts with absolutely no deviation, and it's ridiculous.

As an aside, Vortex would have actually been a great name for Blackout, considering Vortex was a Combaticon who had an alt mode that looked remarkably similar to Blackout's, the helicopter.

Originally I heard that they called the tank, Brawl. He certainly looks like Brawl from the cartoons/comics, but they called him Devestator, which was a bit odd, but nothing that bothered me too much.

I though the movie was done quite well, a guy I play poker with was very disapointed that Megatron was not a cannon / gun?? this work OK for the cartoon, but when you think about it it's a pretty usless thing to change into as another decepticon has to be there to help u.
Now as for sound wave i was thinking he could be an f117 stealth bomer, apache helicopter of even better the sr-71 blackbird(for running recon missions) and when he transforms into robot he could have all the smaller robots that he as on him as maybe missles?

i have no problem with the movie, i love michael bay's TFs movie. flames or no flames, doesnt matter to me at all. im just trying to be the devil's advocate and say like, do we really want to have Soundwave for the sake of just having him? people love him because he was a boombox, well atleast thats why i liked him.

But i guess itll be like the Spider-man 2 movie, not bad at all, but Doc Ock's personality was completely different from the original source. he was originally really evil, and in sp2 he is a genuine guy, a mentor figure to peter parker, turned evil by a.i. tentacles for a dramatic effect...

Having said that, they'll probably update him into of all thing, an iPhone or even an iPod. That would suck.

This thread is to brainstorm ideas of what would be an acceptable alternate form for both Soundwave and Blaster to take in order for them to appear in the future films (if Bay doesn't allow for cartoon/comic physics to be used in the live action adaptation and have a tapedeck become 30 feet tall).

If you could pick a form for Soundwave or Blaster in the next film, what would it be?


Well............... since Bay broke his own rule with a size/mass-shifting allspark,
I'd say have Soundwave as a Tape Cassette deck-like MP-3 player that turns into a 35ft robot, and maybe Blaster could be a red/yellow and grey boombox that turns into a 35ft robot also. smile

None.

He's iconic because of what he was, it wouldn't be the same if he was changed. Prowl can be any model of police car as long as he's a police car, Soundwave can't be an iPod.

Not an IPod, that WOULD suck. But a boombox/tape deck (just like he was) but just updated to be able to play modern formats too. That'd do me.

And Prowl turning up as a clapped out early-nineties Yugo converted to police use wouldn't amuse me much..... wink

I suppose because it was the Allspark it could do that. It's just a conduit for raw energy, not a functioning living form.

Whoever said it was good Megatron didn't turn into the Walther handgun like before, made a good call. How come we never thought about it? He's useless in that mode unless someone pulls his trigger. Never occured to me growing up.

I was thinking today how obvious a solution it would have been to use some of the Alternators, but I guess they still look too human-esque.

I'd be happy if Soundwave was a communications truck of some kind as long as he had The Voice and they tried to do some kind of cassette-like chest thing. Which even as I type sounds nigh impossible to do without it being corny.

yeah but the other fans wouldnt be happy unless Soundwave is Soundwave and that is a tape deck/boombox, afterall, their complaints, and death threats to michael bay are we got Optimus Prime to look more similar to his g1 look, early concept design of Optimus looks NOTHING like optimus at all.
