MP-13 Soundwave transforms into his classic tape deck mode but is much bigger than the original G1 Version. His chest compartment opens and is scaled to accommodate the original G1 mini-cassettes as well as the new Masterpiece mini-cassette partners, including the included Condor cassette. There is a spring-loaded panel inside the compartment to allow up to three cassettes at once.
Soundwave comes with his concussion blaster and non-firing rocket launcher, but unlike the G1 toy they store in his back instead of becoming batteries for his tape deck mode. He also comes with the wrist-mounted sensor from "Fire on the Mountain" and has integrated speakers in his forearms. Other features include a complete Megatron gun, an empty energon cube that can plug into his chest panel, and a grid-pattern display that fits over the chest door.
Masterpiece Laserbeak or Buzzsaw (sold separately) can perch on the tabs of Soundwave's shoulders and forearms and the piledrivers for Masterpiece Rumble and Frenzy sold separately) can be worn on his forearms as cannons. You can also combine Soundwave's sensor with the piledrivers to form the link cable used to hook up to a larger monitor as seen in the Transformers animated movie.
Counted among Megatron’s earliest followers, Soundwave uses Mini-Cons to stealthily infiltrate the fortifications of Autobots and Decepticons alike to fortify his role as Decepticon communication specialist. His minicons enable Soundwave to provide Megatron with the most secret or obscure information. Soundwave’s sensors are sensitive to the lowest radio transmission;, and his penchant for monitoring electrical brain impulses provides him with the equivalent of telepathy. Soundwave’s constant spying makes him unpopular among his fellow Decepticons, so he spends most of his time in the company of his Cassette Warriors. Though he is sometimes portrayed as an arbitrator, Soundwave is always aware of any potential rival in the Decepticon hierarchy, and will use blackmail to eliminate any such rival as quickly and as thoroughly possible.
