Soundwave Revealed for Transformers 2

It's amazing what the toy company is to the film community these days. Toy companies are what leaked the fact that Two-Face would, in fact, appear in the "The Dark Knight." And whenever we're sorely desperate to know the design of a big franchise character, you can count on an upcoming toy line to leak the goods.

I present to you, Michael Bay's Soundwave:

"Wait a minute. This doesn't look anything like Soundwave! Soundwave looks like this:"

Well... Of course it doesn't look like Soundwave. None of the characters, save Optimus, look like themselves, why would the designers stay true to the characters now?

I'm not going to say I'm a big fan of it, but in its defense there's no way Soundwave would be plausible as a transforming stereo that launches transforming tape cassettes at his enemies. And the head, surprisingly, does have some similarities to the original design. No, I don't like the fact that he's a Cybertronian jet like Megatron, but, hell, I didn't even like the first movie.
