Soundwave Wallpaper by timshinn73 Soundwave Wallpaper by timshinn73
This Transformers movie-style Soundwave design was created by me using photoshop based on ideas discussed by TF fans at,,, and Soundwave and Tranformers the are property of Hasbro.

Thanks for taking a look.

Ih, I remember this picture. I was so convinced that this was official concept art. But of course, I was in middle school in the 6th grade, and haven't discovered DeviantArt yet.

This just needs a little more uniqueness in the way the chest opens. Other than that it’s 
perfect. The look in the new bumblebee is too g1. The designs don’t have to be so exactly like the sorce material otherwise it’s a little cheesy and not realistic. This is on just the right level of being true to the character but still have that alien tech anotomic realism with some originality.

i dint have a against g1. Thigh I didn’t grow upon the very first series. I did grow up on armadaand that was just as blocky. But to much of that doesn’t work in a realistic sense. Though these are called robots in disguise,it’s for lack of a the better term. These are inorganic shapeshifting metal lifefirmd. So they need to make more anatomical sense in a way. The armor needs to be more like its part of a functional living metal body. 

Im not blind to the faults bay had and how he messed things up. But the crew that worked with him did some things good. Optimus still looked like Optimus. Megatron was awesome. His second movie look next to his tlk look were closest to his g1 look but in an original fashion. He’s a silvery transformer with legs made from treads, a helmet head and a right arm mounted canon. So the second look was actually relatively closest in regards to the tank form and treads. Shockwave just needed his purple coloring to be more visible and his personality needed to be like who he was supposed to, but that’s all.

All that matters is they follow the distinctive visual ques and traits to stay true to the characters. For example Shockwave is a faceless purple cycloptic cybertronian with an arm mounted canon and has a cool vizor like formation on his chest plate. That can be interpreted in so many ways alone. So with all this said I hope they change the g1 designs by the next film and make them more original, but stillstay true to their characters. This picture above is a great example of what they should do.

I wish the Bay movies kept the mout plate design instead of giving him an actual mouth.

And the voice, but nooo he must sound like Dr claw!!!.
Daybreak-Fan Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2017

This looks awesome as hell. would it be okay if i used this for my DA Avatar picture?

Bay totally should have made this Soundwave kick the other Bay-verse soundwave's ass! And then take its place as the best freaking deception in the movies!!!
MapsNStuff Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2015
But then this version wou;d'vr had its head blasted off by that overly large excuse for bumblebee.

I don't know why, but every time I look at his vehicle form, all I see is Breakdown from Transformers: Prime.

If they ever make a Transformer 4 movie (They might since they will get bored without anything to do) they should make Soundwave look like this. I know he got blown up in the 3rd one but he does find ways to come back. :)

why not the fuck michael bay, you hire a guy for a single constructicon design yet?

This should've been his DOTM design since it's more military-esque, as that's how most Decepticons take on their alt forms.
Lonely-Bones96 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
THIS is how Soundie should have looked like in the bay films!
I also LOVE how you made his face to look more like the D'con insignia!
gizzy2jj Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012
i like yours better bay ruined his design

I LOVE SOUNDWAVE! :squee: I even made a group on him [link] Its new and needs memebers... Would you like to join?
Fenikcs1234 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012
It`s desepticons emblem!
Abejorro97 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012
Love it! if only they made him look like this in the 3rd movie
NZolozabal Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2012
The third movie had Shockwave. Soundwave was the Decepticon that hacked the satellite in the second movie.
Abejorro97 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012
ya, but he got a new alt mode in DOTM, maybe he could've turned into that
tamiiland Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Impressive! I really like the concept and the design is simply kickass.

This beats the Satelite-humper.
Darkstar778 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
They should make an action figure of this

If only he looked like that in Dark of the moon
nathanial91 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011
I love this, way better than what he looked like in Dark of the Moon, he just looked like a general 'grunt', but with your design you can tell straight away that it is Soundwave
samooxxxx Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
cool man !!
megatronus Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
i think this is how soundwave should look like in transformers 3

I really liked Soundwave's design in ROTF( I dunno, maybe it's just me?) but this is very cool too. Good job.
FenrirStealthNinja Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010
This looks alot like movie ratchet. Maybe I'll turn a ratchet toy into soundwave.

woah i wish he was like that on the movie
alientank123 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2009
i thought soundwave transformed into a sattelite plane maybe this version he evolved by the allspark
Reaper-The-Creeper Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
This is simply awesome. Amazing!
EcliptorCalrissian Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2009
Well, what did you think of actual movie Soundwave? I think the toy of movie Soundwave looks cool. Actual character stayed in space in satellite form, never transforming into cool robot or jet that we know he can become. Also, Soundwave just isn't Soundwave without epic vocoder voice of epicness.
coolcoolcool5 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
at least Welker still got to do the voice, but honestly this is just my opinion i like both voices i think there both cool and i can do a pretty close impression of the voice without the vocoder
GenerallyDecent Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I Really wish that they had looked at your designs when making the movie...
This is so awesome, btw, I love it XD
Kittylover9399 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009
Unfortunatly soundwave wasn't as cool as we hoped him to be...
