Soundwave Is Here To Serve … As Your Business Card Holder

Soundwave is one of the top three G1 Transformers characters for me. He was my first Takara Tomy figure, and there was something about the cassette gimmick that I loved. However, as a grownup (barely), it’s hard to justify filling your office with retro toys while trying to maintain a certain level of professionalism. Luckily, Icon Heroes found a way to incorporate Transformers into your office while also being classy.

Rather than ejecting cartridges that transform into Laserbeak or Rumble, this new version of Soundwave has the unique ability to … hold your business cards. OK, I can dig it. Business card holders are typically bland pieces of office furniture, and having a golden Soundwave will liven things up in your Monday thru Friday prison.

The golden Soundwave bust is priced at $60 and is made of polystone. The Decepticon measures 5.5″ tall, 7.5″ wide, and 5″ deep. He weighs about 2 lbs. So, even the heaviest cardstock business cards won’t topple him over.

Icon Heroes presents the Transformers Golden Lagoon Soundwave Bust Card Holder!  What better way to display your business cards than with Megatron’s loyal lieutenant? Based on the Transformers episode The Golden Lagoon where Autobots and Decepticons are protected in electrum coating after dipping into a golden lagoon, the Soundwave card holder can hold approximately 100 cards (not included) with the tape deck flipped down. Business cards not included. Limited edition of 300.

G1 Soundwave was voiced by Megatron himself, Frank Welker. His voice is usually heavily modulated to give it a synthetic sound, which helped the character become such an icon. Soundwave was devoted to Megatron, so much so that he carried the defeated Decepticon leader aboard Astrotrain after being mortally wounded in his battle against Optimus Prime. Oddly enough, that dedication vanished when Starscream decided to jettison the damaged comrades from Astrotrain.
