    Hey Gang, Here is my take on the now very pouplar Classics styled Soundwave and Laserbeak.

    Look for them on Ebay tonight!!
    The details:

    Sounwave:

    • Painted to better represent his G1 cartoon image with a realistic touch
    • Includes Blaster and shoulder cannon
    • Laser fire "blast" effect can be inserted into cannon barrel
    • Red LED fitted into visor
    • Retro styled vinyl Decepticon decals added
    • Painted in durable acrylics, enamels, and lacquers, then sealed for protection

    Laserbeak:

    • Fully transformable from Radar/communications array to condor mode
    • Yellow LED fitted into head
    • Balljointed shoulders, hinged mid wings
    • Balljointed neck, hinged base and mid neck
    • Can use "blast" effect as a chest mount for Laserbeak for eject poses
    • Painted in durable acrylics, enamels, and lacquers, then sealed for protection


    Now for the pics!:

    Nicely done, big hank. I like Laserbeak when he becomes a radar/communications array was pretty ingenius and whomever gets him on ebay is going to be one lucky S.O.B.

    Probably the best Perceptor->Soundwave custom I've seen. I like how Laserbeak turns into the dish and goes on top of the vehicle.

    Thanks! The LED does look dim in the pics, but looks fine in person. I think I'll reshoot a few pics of the face closer up.


    I removed the blue visor plastic and filled it in with clear hot glue backlit with a red LED and lightly painted over in red and clear red.

    LOL, probably my favorite part of this custom, and a totally last minute idea. It literally took me a half hour from conception to completion/painted. I like the blasting out of his chest ejecting poses!



    Thanks! I wanted to have Laserbeak be more than just an accessoriy like he has been in the past. He needed to interact with Soundwave better. I think I pulled it off well!



    Thank you guys!

    Not sure I'll do that, but I will make a short video of his transformation and narrate what I did to him. That should help you make your own.

    Thanks man! I won the blue wibbon! I won the blue wibbon!

    No, and I have giant hands, lol. It can be frustrating at times, but with Soundwave's visor lit up...I.....had...no.........choice......ADD...........A.D.D....
