Soundwave

since he will be part of the next movie, what music player should he be? can't really be a tape deck, can he? unless they do it just as a nod to the old show. either way, he has to be some sort of portable music playing device... i think.

cd player? that'll make his old "tape" transformer minions into discs? it's feasible. there was that one in the last movie that could change shape into practically anything, big or small. still seems a bit dated though.

an ipod? that'll mean no minions, unless they become the ipod's accessories.

a zune? i don't even know about this one.

or have they already released this info?

Re: Soundwave

Soundwave will be revealed to have been on Earth for decades and be an old hand-cranked phonograph player that only plays "I don't want to set the world on fire!"

It'll be comical but chilling. And Kayne West will do a track on the movie album that will heavily sample the classic Ink Spots tune.

They should leave him as is. I think it would be true 80's homage if they use a cassette deck. And I think fans would get a kick out of it. I will so boycott the film if Soundwave ends up transforming into a freakin' I-Pod.

Shockwave is totally going to be an MP3 player and it will be whatever company ponies up the most money to the producers. It's how the cars all ended up Fords.

Autobots were GM, Barricade was the Ford.

Re: Soundwave

Actually I believe in some incarnations that Soundwave was a sports car. Don't know which one but definitely two door hatch back sports car, which makes sense.

Bay won't do any of the mass shifting, so he'll have to be a sports car or as big as Frenzy...
