    Nice modeling.

    Though even your talents can't make that mold look good.;)

    Ok. It is a good start. Here are my comments:
    1) Try to bevel the edges of the character. The straight corners on the door and legs are a bit sharp.
    Try to add some geometry and make bevel edges.

    2) did you render and occlusion pass ?

    3) The glow from the eyes is a little bit too much. tone it down a notch.

    hope this helps.

    Thanks for the advice... The edges are beveled (guess you think they need a bit more though). The occlusion pass comment, i do not understand sorry (dont think ive heard that before) i work in maya.

    If you render in layers in Maya, you can set an occlusion layer. Occlusion checks light rays in your Maya scene. It is basically a calculation of rays and distance in Maya. This pass helps you eliminate light in corners of your model. It also takes out the "plastic" look out of 3d models. Go to Maya help / tutorials and search the topics for occlusion renders.

    yeah it is really hard to make the titanium Soundwave look good, he is a mediocre figure at best. Your rendering looks really cool though
