Originally a Micromaster in the G1 toyline, Hasbro now gave the base the “Airwave” name for the Earthrise line. G1 Micromaster Airwave was a black market smuggler, running high payment fees for the use of his mobile Airbase, even amongst his fellow Decepticons.
Since he’s a Modulator, you have to take him apart to transform him into his various modes.
In the G1 toyline Airwave bio, it’s noted that the control tower has Atomic panels which can short out enemy optic sensors.
I’ll probably be picking up more of this guy when goes on clearance to place around the Titan Classes in city modes. These Modulators are actually not too shabby if you place more than one down you can start to form a small base thanks to the various optional modes.
