Transformers Decepticon Soundwave

Updated on December 30, 2010

Soundwave - One of the Main Decepticons in the Transformers Universe

Soundwave was one of the original Transformers Decepticons, and hugely popular toy. In the Generation 1 version of Soundwave, he transformed from tiny autorecorder to full size robot, complete with shoulder cannon. Whenever he deemed necessary, he could call on his robot minions: Laserbeak, Frenzy, Rumble, Ravage, Ratbat, and a whole bunch of other Decepticons. Here on this page, you'll find a number of Soundwave toys, action figures, facts, photos, videos and more, all about Soundwave!

Remember when toys were this cool? You can't really beat Soundwave. A toy that transforms from bazooka shouldered robot to boombox with individually transforming cassette tapes... which turn into the likes of Rumble, Ravage, Ratbat, and Laserbeak.

Why all the fuss about Soundwave? Because, he's the coolest Decepticon around. And he ejects tapes from his chest. And we ALL wish we could do that.

Soundwave was instantly recognizable for his computerized, deep monotone voice, and his unique look. One of his specialties was jamming satellite frequencies, and even appears in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, voiced by the voicemaster Frank Welker.

More Classic Soundwave Toys and Stuff Available - Yes, there's even more Soundwave toys for you to collect!

Think that you have every Soundwave toy imaginable? Nope, there's plenty more to choose from, like the Transformers 2 movie Soundwave toy, kids t-shirts, and other cool stuff. Put him on your windowsill, mount him on your dashboard, give him to your kids, whatever the case may be, it all boils down to this: is your home really complete without your own Soundwave toy? We didn't think so.

Soundwave vs. Blaster - Who Wins? - Arch enemies on the cartoon - but who would win ultimately?

In my opinion, Soundwave beats Blaster no contest. Better cassette tape Transformers, a cooler voice, and more menacing look. But what do you think?

Who wins - Blaster or Soundwave?
