    I am wanting to do a Classics Blaster based on Ptitvite's Titanium Soundwave bash. Since that mold is hard to find for cheap I was going to go KO and get the item imaged below. However, it appears that my KO dealer has lost out to eBays new KO policy as he is no longer selling ANY PRODUCTS!!!

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to find this mold (KO or otherwise) or suggest another mold entirely that would work, Blaster has been one of the harder ones to find an update for and keep the tapedesk design.

    Oh yeah, there was a whole big thread a while back about the new KOs. KO MP Prime, KO Titanium Soundwave, KO Classics Starscream, KO Voyager FAB Brawl. . . I forget what else there was. ^^;

    Wait...? KO Classics Starscream? Are you sure about the last one? Where's that thread?

    It is kind of sad. Titanium figures, due to their simple construction, would make excellent candidates for scaled-up KOs... so these guys pick the most universally reviled of all Titaniums to use as their base??

    I like the way this head works for Blaster, but considering the work involved, wouldn't it be easier just to add articulation to a junker G1 Blaster? :)

    i think the head looks very blasterish too, i wonder f it would be the right fit for voyager blasters (upcoming universe fgure). ive actaly just bought this soundwave on e bay, hopeing with him being 7inces he might be a similar size to music label soundwave that way he will be about fight fr my display

    A few of the molds that I've been considering for my Blaster bash are Cybertron Wingsaber and Cybertron Mudflap.

    Wingsaber is a jet instead of a radio, but he would be a great counter to Cybertron Soundwave. And his chest does flip either up or down.

    Ultimately I decided on Mudflap. I plan on modding Mudflap's transformation into something more like G1 Soundwave and G1 Blaster, with the legs becoming the side speakers. Mudflap's chest also flips open similar to the cassette door (once the head is removed from the door).

    Personally ask the seller if he's got anymore and to put one up for you. With eBay cracking down on KOs, you might not get another chance if you wait around.

    I'll try and find it for you. The only downside to Screamer was that he had no elbows. ^^;

    Was it an oversize KO Classics Starscream? If it was close to Voyager size, I think it'd be worth it, even if I had to make new arms for him! :)

    Forget the topics you post in? XP



    Aaanywho, I suppose I should try to get back on topic. As far as some other bot (in case Chimungmung is out of the KO Soundwave), I'm using a modified TFTM Ironhide for my own Classics Soundwave. With an Alt Skidz head, you could probably use the same mold for your own Blaster. Hood folds down like a cassette deck, and if you bring the head far enough forward, you should be able to fit something like an engine into the alt mode.

    Hey, no problem. I would think he may get some more in the future. I'm patient I can wait, or just break down and buy a Titanium one for more than it is worth!

    Who knows. Maybe this KO is better quality than the original.

    I've gotten a few KO's from this guy in the past, and sometimes it does pay off to just ask him.

    Did you already mention the Classics Starscream KO to him? Do you know if it's oversized? I feel kind of weird asking him about a KO figure that I don't even know exists, or what it looks like. :)

    This enough to show the seller? It looks like it's probably the same size, but maybe it's from the same guys that made the oversize Astrotrain. Best to ask, either way.

    And good luck with the bash, Kal! Glad you nabbed it.
