There are a few unique MP3 players that come along every once in a while & this is one of them. I have had people stop me & ask to see it.

It has a SD card slot in its chest for the music & a headphone jack where its shoulder mounted cannon goes. It gets power from one 'AAA' battery that goes in the back.

Pros-
Reasonbly priced, Simple to use, Unique

Cons-
cant withstand abuse

I haven't had any problems and have been at least moderately entertained by the Soundwave MP3 player. The only downside is its lack of features, no USB, and lack of rechargable battery/battery pack dampen its functionality somewhat but not terribly a USB card reader and card was more than an acceptable price and it will take the 2gb card with seemingly no problems. A LCD display would put it over the top. The sound is great, I was honestly suprised, and its joints 'pop off' before they break if a 8 y/o starts playing with it and pulls of a leg, and they pop right back on, plus it has a really high 'geek' factor. Glad I bought it, just wish it had a few more features, overall a pretty neat gizmo.

This thing is freaking AWSOME!!!!
By far the coolest mp3 ever create(if you're a transformers fan at least).
Soundwave is faithfully recreated with only slight alterations, namely in size and the fact that the guns do not fire missals. Other than that, and the fact that tapes do not go in his chest but a mini sd card does which is soooo cool and a nice concept for the new digital age, Soundwave is as awesome as he was when the toy was first created in the mid to late 80s.
Soundwave has around 20 or so points of articulation. Ten of these points are ball joints which allows you to pose sounwave the way you have always wished you could!!!!!
He also has interchangeable hands. Two fist type hands and four ,two right and two left, that have extended trigger fingers.(the extended hands do not interfere with Soundwave's transformation capabilities)
The only real downside to the player player part of the figure is the fact that it takes a triple A battery instead of having a built in rechargeable one.This is further complicated by the fact that the battery has to be installed by taking out a screw and removing a panel on Soundwaves back.
Also, there is no usb interface with which to put music on the mini sd card. You have to load it via a mini sd card reader/writer.
The price tag is a little more than I would like, but a small price for a true fan.
Other than this it's the coolest darn transformer ever. Simply because it's the first one that ever actually functions as toy and as what it is supposed to be.
If you are a die hard TF fan you have to purchase this figure!!!!!!

At first I was super excited about my Soundwave mp3 player and really did not have much intention of actually using the toy as an mp3 player simply because 1: I'd be terrified to damage it; 2: i'd be mortified I'd lose it. Guess which happened? I had it on display for a little while and had the cannon stuck in the headphone jack before I decided to finally give it a whirl. Lo and behold, the solder was so poorly done or the cannon plug too tough on the jack, the jack itself completely dislodged. I recommend that if you want it, be prepared for an expensive toy with awesome aesthetic value, and little to no actual functionality. The limbs are pretty pose-able but the innards are too delicate to be used in the manner it is advertised.

It is smaller than I thought. It can go inside your pocket.
However, one thing that could be harm the product: is sharp things. DO NOT PUT THEM AROUND WITH SOUNDWAVE. I got 3mm scratch on him.
Overall, he got a nice body EXCEPT arms.
Left arm - too tight to transform to robot mode.
Right arm - too lease to transform to alt mode.

This toy could be better if it got speaker on his cannon or legs.

Although not strictly the same colour scheme as the G1 Soundwave, and being considerably shorter in robot mode, the Transformers Soundwave Music Label Mp3 Player is still a fantastic representation of this iconic figure.

Great soud quality, huge bass output, looks great, transforms easily, made of sturdy plastic, comes with both shoulder cannon and hand blaster. 3 sets of hands; closed fists, trigger finger (for holding weapon) and pointed finger, for posing as if to open his own cassette tray.

Only works with 1G Mini SD cards, so more than one card is definitely needed. Front panel ("cassette" tray) springs open revealing Mini SD slot. Mini SDs are hard to find, but a Micro SD in and adapter works just fine.

Only one thing of slight annoyance; no shuffle feature, so whatever order the songs are on the card is the order it plays them in. Turn it off and instead of starting where you left off, it goes back to the beginning. Not a huge problem until you have more than a few dozen songs on it.

Issues aside, excellent product, must have for any true fan.

I was very happy with this toy. The SD card support is great. The fact that I used to have Soundwave when I was a kid just make this more awesome.
