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.
Reasonbly priced, Simple to use, Unique
cant withstand abuse
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!!!!!!
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.
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.
