SOUNDWAVE

with Buzzsaw

Series: Generation 1
Allegiance: Decepticon
Categories: Communicator
Function: Communications
Year: 1984


Cries and screams are music to my ears!
It is said Soundwave can hear a fly sneeze. Uses anything he hears for blackmail to advance his status. Opportunist. Despised by all other Decepticons. Sensors can detect even lowest energy radio transmissions. Able to read minds by monitoring electrical brain impulses. Acts as radio link for others. Locates and identifies Autobots, then informs Decepticons. Carries a concussion blaster gun. Often target of retaliation by his comrades.



Robot Mode: Soundwave might just be one of the coolest-looking Transformers out there. His robot mode kicks major ass, his face and paint job giving him a dangerous air, augmented by the launcher on his shoulder and his huge weapon. Posability is quit good for a robot from this time and his look just can't be beat. The tape deck on his chest can open to unleash an army of cassette robots like Buzzsaw, though unlike in the series he can only carry a single cassette in there at any given time. Still, as perfect a robot mode as the original G1 toys managed.

Alternate Mode: Soundwave transforms into a Sony Walkman. While this mode might be a bit outdated in current times, it was pretty cool way back when. A fun gimmick is that you can store his weapons (minus the silver missiles) in his battery compartment on his back, seeing as they are shaped exactly like cell batteries.

Partners / Add-Ons: Soundwave comes with the Buzzsaw Cassette figure. Buzzsaw transforms from cassette to robotic condor, complete with two big guns on his back.

Remarks: Soundwave was the coolest G1 character bar none. His modulated voice sent chills down my spine back in those days and of all the Transformers he had the coolest powers. He could read thoughts, shrink down to the size of a real Walkman, house a huge force of Cassette Decepticons inside his chest, and produce Energon cubes. No Transformers collection is complete without Soundwave. Bottom line.
