      The Soundwave action figure in the Transformers Animated Series line of toys is not one of the better ones, but he does have some good features. He sells for between $10 and $12 and you can find him in most toy stores. He is pretty easy to transform, other than his chest plate is hard to move into its final position.

      Pros: First of all, the mere fact

      that Soundwave is offered as a figure is a big bonus. He was always my favorite Transformer growing up. Also, he comes with Laserbeak, who is reimagined as a large guitar to go along with Soundwave’s vehicle mode. In the original series, Laserbeak was a cassette tape, and Soundwave was a tape player. The new vehicle mode and guitar mode are certainly more modern. Also,

      • Soundwave’s chest resembles his original tapedeck chest while not actually being a tape deck. So he is familiar while still being somewhat fresh.

        Cons: The biggest con is that Soundwave is so short! His car form is the same size as other Transformer vehicles, but because of the way his robot form is designed, a lot of his bulk is on his back and in his arms, so

        that does not give him any height. Also, his legs are somewhat poorly designed, making it hard to stand him up. If you get him standing up, just leave him alone!

        Overall: If Soundwave was a little bigger and a little sturdier, he would be a great toy. However, the way he is designed makes him only a good toy. I give him a 7 out of 10.
