    This was an idea I've been turning over forever, so here he is. Basically a weekend of work repainting a CW Drillhorn into Soundwave. Only big change was using Brawl's head and turret gun. Though this now means my Brawl is gunless and headless.

    That’s really clever. I would’ve never thought of the Brawl mold as Soundwave. It works surprisingly well. Great job!

    That's...pretty damn good, actually. I have an extra Brawl that I was trying to decide what to do with (I are grammar gud), and this is an excellent idea.

    Might be a stupid question, but if it's Drillhorn with Brawl's head and gun, why didn't you just use a Brawl in the first place?

    Considerably less paint apps were needed and a much lower chance of paint rub when he gets transformed. Brawl would have basically required his entire body to be repainted, Drillhorn already had blue, grey, and white plastic. Drillhorn.jpg

    Wow it works really good! Very original very tough! I never thought about Soundwave being tanked out. Have seen Jet and car. Yours is right on! Plus a CW WOW.

    Nice paint apps! They're placed perfectly to work with the details of the mold and give the idea of Soundwave.
