    Working on my Supreme Class Soundwave. Long story, but everything is staged, except for the head and I can't think of anything to use. I suppose I'll have to *shudder* make one, but I'd really prefer something I can cannibalize. I thought about my old standby, Optimal Optimus, but it doesn't seem Soundwavey enough. Any ideas? Also what makes Soundwave Soundwave?

    It would take some work, but what about Cybertron Metroplex?

    I like Either the Cybertron head or the Machine Wars head. I know you can use Hydro Span to enlarge a piece, maybe someone can do it for you. If your in no big rush, I am going to order some Hydro Span this week, I would be happy to try to do it for you. You can PM me if interested. Sounds like a kick a$$ project, best o' luck!!:thumbs2:

    AH!! That's right, I remember this!! It turned out sooo great!!:thumbs2: 


    I think what makes Soundwave Soundwave, facially speaking, is this:

    Single visor for eyepiece
    Face plate over the mouth
    Central horn crest
    The fact that he vaguely looks like the Decepticon symbol!

    All these features are present in all your sample pics!:thumbs2:

    That's the biggest thing to me. It's a pretty obvious comparison that has lasted thru most of his incarnations over the years.

    That last one was what really got me. After reading Megatron Origin, I sorta figured that the Decepticon insignia was based on Soundwave's head. Any sort of personal stylizing of said emblem (obviously swapping out the separate eyes for a single visor) ought to do the trick.

    I suppose it also depends on the neck (ball joint, circular hole (like Cyb. Starscream's)). Of course, this can always be modded later. What body are you using as a base?

    Yeah Timshinn, I remember that head. Perfect. I'm going to try an make one.

    As for the base mode, I gotta make sure I can pull this off before I say too much. It makes sense though, but I don't think anyone has used it for Soundwave before.

    You could use a modded Masterpiece Prime too. Their heads aren't too different

    This should be in the discussion section,not the actual finished/wip projects section.

    Back on Topic,try hyrdospanning a movie Ironhide head,the back of his head is pure soundwaveness.
