    This is my "Classics" Movie Soundwave. I took all the kibble off of the ROTF Soundwave and pianted him up in his G1 colors. Because of his deluxe size, I figured he would fit with my classics customs and he does. So here he is with my G1 deluxe Megatron and G1 deluxe Starscream. Also, as a bonus, I found a "tape deck" mode! I guess it would be some sort of Cybertronian style tape deck. And a DOUBLE BONUS!!! A Cybertronian lamp?

    Nice. I really like the colors you choose. He just looks awesome. Can you figure out how to make a street light mode too, if you know what I mean?

    you need to pivot the chest up for proper transformation. other than that it's sweet. reminds me of MY Soundwave. check it out HERE

    See last pic. I just have his legs folded regular and just arms going up. Not really a lamp but it's not a satelite.

    Don't really need a "proper" transformation. I have his chest that way to make him taller. Besides, see pic 3. There it is. Pivot up = chest closed. Pivot down = chest open.

    Don't worry. I still have another ROTF Soundwave. I plan to do a proper ROTF style repaint for him.

    Great idea removing all his satellite kibble. He looks less dwarf-ish without them. I love the paintjob as well. The drybrushing is just perfect and the color placement of the blue (and the yellow and red accents) works really well.

    All in all, awesome work Solrac! :rock

    Great colors!!!! I might have to get this figure now...
    Man, I wish he had more screen time in the film.....I was hoping that when Megatron was damaged by Prime at the end....and he called out for Starscream's help..that Starscream would have kicked Megs while he was down and fled.....and then... we see a speck in the sky...and as it gets closer, its Soundwave!! he transforms to robot mode and lands....then we get the classic line:
    ...."Don't leave me Soundwave"...."As you command Megatron"....
    Now THAT would have been awesome!!!

    Great repaint!

    Looks good, the lean, mean Soundwave works well. The "tape deck" and "lamp post" are amusing too, good stuff :)

    Thanks! The "tape deck" kind of looks like some high tech evil looking stereo system with big ass speakers.

    It's astounding how much taller he seems without all the satellite kibble.

    I get my gifs at TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

    Searched for Soundwave and there he was doing this...

    It is isn't it. I'm going to try and find a use for the kibble. Too bad he wasn't a voyager class.

    I went and did the same thing to mine. I thought about using his kibble to make a custom Ancient Prime out of The Fallen. There's an idea for you too.

    By the way, I think the Soundwave gif is a snippet from this: YouTube - Soundwave the Transformer BreakDances!
