    A true classics soundwave copy wip UPDATE

    First and foremost, props to Chansformers for the idea and inspiration for this guy. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/604093-true-classics-soundwave.html

    I followed his recipe fairly close so far. But from here on it will get a little different. Gonna try for a more cartoon accurate look. And will try to have an opening tape door that takes a cassette
    Will be using a Robot Heroes head.

    More with updates later.

    I think I'm more interested in the Rumble than the Soundwave! (esp since I have those parts)

    Carry on...

    Got the styrene work done. Pretty happy with it considering it's my first attempt at using the stuff.
    Soundwave still needs: head, and two weapons. and paint.

    Rumble is just in the mock up stage right now, but I think I'm pretty certain how he'll transform. Gawd it's gonna be tuff makin' a guy that small. But, no pain no gain, right?

    Anyhow, let me know what ya'll think so far.

    Looking good so far. I would use a dark blue and lighten it slightly.

    Shaved some off of the back of the head to make it fit. Made a platform from styrene to mount to. shaved the feet off and cut the upper leg down to a size that fit.
    Believe me, doing all this freehand, it took a couple tries. lol

    Incredibly small figure, but that's what it took to get him into the chest.
    But, I accomplished what I set out to do.

    Paint applied to Wave. Rumble has his blue. As stated b4 going for a mostly cartoon accurate look. Will be using some purple and silver. Just don't like my light blue so that's why the purple.
    Still waiting for the head to arrive. Tempted to build one combining primes head and a classics seaker.

    Update

    Got the paint on Rumble and crafted a head for Soundwave. Trying to decide if I like it or want to wait for the other head.

    The pics are a little blurry, and the paint is VERY wet so it kinda looks crappy.
    That being said, it gives a basic idea of what it'll look like, I think.
    Oppinions?
