    Not decided next project so I'm working in a custom Laserbeak. Added articulation on wings, neck and adapted claws to fit on Soundwave arms. Not finished yet. :)  Regards and thanks for looking!

    Really sweet. Shame it doesn't transform, though. It almost looks like it could.

    Holy shit... you could sacrifice the cassette space and make the waist slide up in the torso, then it's almost ready for transformation!

    Wow, that looks fantastic. It looks like what I hope MP Soundwave will look like, whenever that will come. Shame that it doesn't transform, but considering how great this looks, that's not too big of a loss. :thumb

    That's some impressive work there.
    The only crit is that the black part of his torso seems a little small.

    It looks really cool so far. What Gundam model did you use as the base? It looks to be a master grade. That would make sense since you're probably going for posability.

    Thanks a lot for your comments !!

    This time I used a Gundam MG MS 08 Team Gundam Ez-8 on arms and legs. Other parts are from a Soundwave G1 Hasbro I bought broken on Ebay (head and legs mainly). Rest of the model are from styrenne and greeblies.

    Regards!

    are you using the palisades soundwave design as your base? looks very similar to it. Looks great so far!

    Very nice dude! Looks like it could be really good. Can't wait to see how this is turns out.

    Are you gonna make a vehicle mode prop for him so it looks like he can transform?

    I love everything except the waist. It's way too thin for the chest and hips next to it.

    perfect!

    it's awesome to see you taking people's criticism on the waist and elbows, re-working them, and hit a homerun.

    i can't wait to see this painted
