    Considering HA Soundwave's rather gorilla like proportions, I was thinking about a movie Primal re-tool/repaint.

    Not sure on a few things.

    1) What head? Voyager BW Primal or a smaller head from another mold?

    2) Leave those hands or replace them with five fingered hands.

    3) Would this mold even work at all for Primal?

    What say you?

    I'd base it off one of his Transmetal forms, and leave the hands.

    laserbeak to Air razor perhaps?

    and, I'd use as mechanical of a head as you can.

    I don't think it'll even be that great. I see customs where people take other toys that have ape-like builds and they never look like Primal. Look no further than the DoFP Primal. People forget that Primal didn't have gorilla proportions in robot mode.

    Hell, he didn't have accurate gorilla proportions in beast mode, either.

    I'm willing to see how it turns out

    I'm actually seeing Split Lip's point. My second idea was to do a head swap with HA Barricade and paint up the Mustang with a "Pimp My Ride" paint job.

    It makes more sense as Barry's chest has the compartment for Frenzy and any number of custom "cassette" bots.

    The mace on the arm could be modded to have a hubcap/speaker gun look.
