As a kid when I saw the very first episode of TRANSFORMERS – MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE – PART 1, I thought (assuming as did every other kid) the robot that I would come to know as SOUNDWAVE had a Cybertron mode of a Lamp Post! And I thought,”Man this guy looks and sounds so cool but he’s a Lamp!!”
But as the episodes went on and I found out that on earth he transformed into a Sony Mini-cassette player and that he was the Decepticons’ Communications Officer I began to think Maybe he turned into a radio/satellite antenna! It made more sense that a planet full of robots would have some highly advanced interplanetary network of systems beaming tons of information back & forth at light speed and what better place for a master manipulator of information and communication then right at the center of it all!
I’d try to bring this theory up to my friends and they’d cut me off and say, “You just want to believe that because you have the toy and you don’t want him to suck because he turns into a Street Light!”
But if you go back to that episode, He CAN’T be a lamp because it’s CLEARLY night time as the Autobots drive by and he’s not giving off any light! Neither are the other structures around him – and that’s because they are COMMUNICATION TOWERS and NOT LAMP POSTS!!!
Sorry, I know this must be the WEIRDEST #INKtober
