This is Soundwave from the Human alliance version of the DOTM Movie. I know you people out there were waiting for the full review of this toy and so i have tried to make my reviews of this character as detailed as i can.
Generally if you look at the Soundwave toy as seen above you can see he has very bright colors and i had an interesting time taking pictures of him at the outdoors !!!! It brings out his colors very well. And i must say the Mercedes logo is my most favorite part of the toy itself.
Soundwave given this alternate version other then his actual communication type machine was very unexpected. This is the first time i have seen Soundwave actually transform into a vehicle mode. And because of the interesting car design and character itself it became one of the hottest characters from the DOTM movie.
Soundwave has very sharp looks and is very unique indeed. From the top part of his body to his legs. Soundwave has very balanced features. The toy is actually quite easily balanced and doesn't fall so much. But you got to make some adjustments if you want to make some adjustments on his poses as you deemed it to be. Other then that it makes a very great display item too of you had a cool showcase with bright lightings.
This center upward pose i took with his arms folded and partially spread out brings out the intense look of Soundwave. His focused fierce looking face and looking as though he is going to grab you. I had to take the pictures of him in the daytime in the bright sunlight so he looks so much better.
Sideviews of both sides of Soundwave and just look at those car tires. I think it's one of the best part of Soundwave. The tires are actually made very precise in design and it's exactly the same as what the actual Mercedes SLS AMG looks like if you were to check out the car itself.
Top view of the toy
The only problem with Soundwave is that as you can see the top part of the doors and the side of the windscreen of the vehicle the paint job wears off if you transform the robot too many times. You got to get the exact paint used to color Soundwave to paint him back !!!!. The rest of the silver parts of the body hasn't got those problems as the Plastic used to make his body is Silver colored plastic molding which is used in almost all parts of the body accept the doors and the car's windscreen area.
Here i have featured Laserbeak the Little assasin of Soundwave's which sits nicely in his big arms !!!!
This Laserbeak toy comes with the Human alliance package but it's not as nice as the DOTM Deluxe version of the Laserbeak toy. The main function of this toy packaged with Soundwave is to get the Human figurine to go into the Laserbeak toy and resting on Soundwave's shoulder as a weapon. This modified version is nothing at all related to the movie at all. It was just given the extra touch with Soundwave Human alliance Package.
As you can see above here Laserbeak transforms into a weapon and is mounted on the top of Soundwave to act has a firing weapon something like a cannon.
And here is what he transforms into the Mercedes SLS AMG !!!! Cool isn't it !!!!
Just wanted to show how Soundwave looks like with his door opened up.
I don't know why they put the word Superior on the back of Soundwave's vehicle mode but i don't remember seeing this particular imprint in the back of the vehicle in the DOTM Movie. So i suppose it's just for the sake of putting it for the toy i guess .....
Well anyways enough said I am a great Transformers fan and a movie toy fan so for me this particular Soundwave toy is very important to include in my toy collection of Transfomers toys. The overall design of the toy is unique and very special in a sense no particular transformers toy transforms into a Luxury car like this , well some of them did but they were never released as a toy before. And this is the first ever Transformers toy to be used as a mercedes car and i haven't remembered seeing one before. So if you are passionate about luxury cars and like soundwave very much go get this toy. I personally have 5 of this vehicle in spare and extremely brand new. I bought extra stock to sell off when the demand is right for the prices to go up. And i do know that this particular toy you can only get it in speciality collector shops it's not openly available in the commercial market. Well what ever the situation is go get it before they all are gone.
More reviews coming up people keep it here !!!!
