Comments: Soundwave

That commercial rules! Seriously though, the soundwavespace section is...touching. Of course it came from a MUSHer.

Why must you mock me? I am having to beat the comment spam away with a stick these days.

You mistake the fact that I must qualify everything I write with "seriously though" with mockery. Only half true!

I was actually taking issue with your condescending tone towards MUSHers.

Not really.

Admit it. Yeah really.

Ok fine, I admit it: They are not the hell your whales.

why was it that in addition to his ability to transform, soundwave could also go from small to huge..or was he just not shown in proportion... he should have been the tiniest trandsformer..next to those little cassette transformers he kept inside of his body.... though megatron should also have been tiny. this is why i have no business talking about transformers... i am unable to reconcile change in size amongst transforming robots.

The change in size (and mass) is probably the most technilogically advanced feature of the transformers. Megatron could transform into a gun that another transformer could wield. Also there was Astrotrain and Skyfire- normal sized bots that transformed into vehicles big enough for other transformers to ride in.

I think it would have been much more interesting to have the leader of the Decepticons be mega tiny next to the other transformers than to use the mass shifting.

The disconnect between the size of transformers in "biped" mode versus "disguise" mode bothered me even when I was a kid. The truth is that none of them were proportional to their disguise. Even bumblebee got super huge when he transformed.

Bumblebee also had viking-esque horns. What's up with that?

I wonder if the new transformers movie which allegedly is being worked on will pass the patriotically correct thought police. Think of it, Autobots and decepticons battling over the natural resources of our planet, turning our whole planet into a battleground to benefit distant nations? Sounds a little familiar, doesn't it? Will Optimus Prime liberate us blue states?
