    well i do not like the animated soundwave head. i am not alone on this lol. anyways the head measures a little more than 1.5 mm across and 1.5mm tall. i am sure i can go a little bigger a g1 soundwave head is way to big :(  . i was thinking maybe a titanium head but not to sure how big it is i think it may be to small. i could resculpt the head but would rather do a swap if i can find a suitable head to use. any help would be appreiciated. :thumb

    I think you should just repaint it with G1 Soundwave colors.

    Would look better than most heads fitting SW heads, if there's any that could fit anyway.

    I have to admit I agree with you. Aside from anything else, I feel the eyes should stay within the bounds of the rest of the head. The "Dame Edna Everage" look really doesn't work.

    Well I was thinking Cyb Soundwaves head too, but when you said G1 Soundwaves head was too big, that takes Cyb. Soundwaves head out of the equation too....they are both about the same size (I have used them both on Alt Customs)

    You got skills man, maybe try re-doing it?...:thumb

    thanks guys you all have been a great help i started this thread to make sure i did not overlook any ideas. i think the robot heros idea would be the best are those the non transforming pvc figures?

    it does not really matter though i decided and started to retool him.

    Ramrider made a good point about the eyes and so did my friend that seen it first hand. so i guess i am going back to the lab to work out the eye situation. btw i already fixed the mouth and cheeks.

    you could always try resculpting/tooling a prime head. He and soundwave have always had some of the same facial features.
