DOTM The Game Soundwave Image, Covers, Preview

It seems a press embargo was released on preview articles around Transformers: Dark of the Moon The Video Game. As a result, we have further confirmation that Soundwave's alt mode is a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG despite Hasbro's efforts to "correct" the error on their Vector Sigma database by switching it to a satellite. This is seen by the vehicle kibble on the model. It also seems he does lose his blue color and trades it in for white or silver scheme. Reviews describe his alt mode as a truck so drawing the definitive conclusion remains murky. In addition, a Transformers: Rising Storm #3 panel also shows more car kibble on his robot mode with a dark gray color scheme. Thanks to Torsten for the images.

In relation to the game, Amazon has updated their various console posts to show off the new covers for the game (below). As previously announced, the game is being released on the XBox 360, PS3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and on the Nintendo DS in Autobot and Decepticon games but apparently no PSP or PC version will be available.

With the lifting of the embargo comes more articles describing the game. None cover new ground other then rephrasing what we already know about the game such as being a prologue to the movie, uses the War for Cybertron graphics and game mechanics, adds in the "Stealth mode" and has levels specific to each character. So far impressions remain very good and indicate a game that will be fun to play. Below are links to various write-ups and an embed of IGN's video preview. (via TFW2005)

  1. Hmmm. If Carly is driving it then maybe shes a pretender or Soundwave is gathering intelligence of some sort from them and is undercover.

  5. I'm interested in finding out more about the 3DS version... that boxart is pretty badass. Should be interesting to see what that's like since I don't think we've seen any footage of it yet.

  6. one of the books for kids is called "autobots betrayed" (correct me if i'm wrong), so if soundwave is in fact the SLS, is carly's car and..........!

  7. I would figure if he's anyone's car it's going to be some other character other than Carly's really. Sure she drives a Mercedes and it doesn't make sense to have two of them in there but I think the Autobots would be able to sense if there was a Decepticon traveling with them

  13. We got Decepticons in DOTM turning into vehicle alt modes, this sucks. I guess Shockwave is a rice rocket...shit's weak.

    I really hope somebody takes this franchise over and put's things back on track.

  14. # 1 out of 100 women

    The definitive list of the world’s most beautiful women by Maxim Magazine for 2011.

    1. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
    All hail Maxim’s new queen! When we first heard rumblings of a Megan Fox replacement in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, we wept into our Optimus Prime pillows for weeks. As it turns out, director Michael Bay found someone even foxier. Making her Hot 100 debut at the No. 1 spot and scoring her first big screen role in the next Transformers, please give a warm, not-creepy welcome to supermodel and all-around British bombshell Rosie Huntington-Whiteley!

    Heat factor: Forget the Hells Angels …Rosie earned the world’s most prestigious set of wings courtesy of Victoria’s Secret in 2009.

    I think the car look is the most updated and most likely what he will look like in the movie. The second mode with the wings is the style the toys were for ROTF.

    My guess is he may start out looking that before he gets the car mode. Although I wouldn't be surprised if the satellite form is just comics only appearance

  25. Oh my... Deceptcon as a Mercedes- Gullwing?!?!?!
    This is a mockery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
