As of today, we are less than two weeks away from the premiere of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and as a result, we’re starting to see the final wave of marketing for the movie.

The film premiered in Tokyo, Japan the other day and final touches are being done for the film to make it ready for the opening (or as ready as possible in their overly rushed schedule)

Over the months, we’ve been able to provide quite a bit of information on the 42 Cybertronian characters to be featured in the Transformers sequel, and more recently we’ve started seeing some images pop up online revealing some of the newer characters who we knew about but hadn’t seen much of including Sideways and The Fallen.

Today, we have an image of what Soundwave will look like in the film in one of is alternate modes as well as a scene from the movie introducing us to the small character of Wheelie.

To start, here’s the Satellite version of Soundwave:

The colors do a good job of paying tribute to the original version but I don’t understand this alternate mode just yet. I’ll wait till the movie opens to see how this character will play out as he’s one of the fan favorites from the original.

Next up, here’s Wheelie!

Wow, do I ever hate the look of the character. Frenzy was probably the worst part of the first Transformers movie (second only to Agent Simmons played by John Turturro) and he (it) did not fit with the other characters in the film. The sounds that came from him didn’t make much sense and when he was walking around in plain site on Air Force One, it drove me nuts.

So, what do they do? Give us another character just like him! As soon as this video showed him moving around, I was depressed but then I was actually pleasantly surprised when he started talking (ignoring how he stupidly gets caught in a mouse trap). His attitude and voice reminds me of Rattrap (mouse trap, rat trap… get it?) from the Beast Wars series and he called Megan Fox a B-word which was funny.

Sadly, Wheelie’s dialogue was better than Mikaela’s which made no sense and the CGI when she picks him up with the clamp looked weak.

On a side note, this whole plot point about Sam seeing things and going crazy from touching the shard is not interesting to me and I hope it’s short-lived within the film.

What do you think of Wheelie and Soundwave?

  1. In a future sequel that is.

  2. The form of satellite for soundwave is good, although i like the original form from the animated serie. He almost doesnt have much participation in the film, it was a mistake in the movie, i think so.

  3. I agree Lurf. Im such a big fan of the 80′s animated series and theres still alot more robots id like to see on the big screen. I wished they used Soundwave’s voice from the show, instead they made him sound like Dr. Claw. And i read Soundwave will have a bigger role in the next film.

  4. soundwave does transform but i dont know hes transform to satellite or jet…but i think is a jet….

  5. Soundwave does not transform. Try watching it again.

  6. I wished they had Soundwave talk the same way he did in the 80′s show. His tone wasnt the same, but the way words came out you could tell its the same guy who voiced him. With all the airplanes in the hanger area scene, they could of used them as the Aerial Bots and have them combine to fight Devastator. I hope Bay considers introducing atleast 3 of the Dinobots in the next film aswell as the Stunticons.

  7. How dare you intimately think that it’s humorous for Wheelie to use the B-word (which I personally think is dispicible). I earnestly think that its is disgraceful for some of Autobots/Decepticons to use such rancid and squalid profanity since none of Transformers in the original cartoon series used such language.

  8. @ Ryan
    It’s a live-action film, not a animated series. I grew up the 80′s animated series and i didnt care all that much about Optimus Prime being a different kind of semi with flames on him. Bay thought he should change Bumblebee cause a folkswagon is old school and he was one of shortes autobots in the show. What didnt make since to me was Jazz in the movie would be at the height of what Bumbble bee would of been if he was a folkswagon. But bottom line is the movie is for both old & new generations of fans. Wheelie from the cartoon was cute especially in the animated movie when use words in rhymes.

  9. Idk wat u guys r tlking about soundwave does tranforem in the movie watch it agen he first is an alien jet when he’s in the form of α jet is when he was in space and he’s going to the usa satelight then when he gets there’s he gets attached to the satelight and changes into one to get information
