    Update: 5/12 - Added alt mode pics and head shots...

    Airbrushed his grey colors after priming with flat black lacquer base. All his details and wear and tear were hand brushed. He is transformable but I'd like to give him a couple days. For this Soundwave, I wanted to go with a flat look. His eyes and forearms were painted with a rather hard glow effect this time.

    ALT MODE :)

    Also added more definition to the bot mode damage apps. I then sealed both modes with a flat coat protective sealant.

    Close head shots in here as well!

    Pretty cool. You made a super turd of a figure look SO much better. The glowing effect may be a bit to much, but the overall figure is WORLDS better than what Hasbro/Takara gave us! I also wish you would wait to post both modes in one post, I really want to see the alt mode!

    Very nice, I would also like to see the alt mode. Hope you were able to get one of these at a good price before they skyrocketed.

    I actually like what you did with the glowing arms! It looks a lot like some of the concept art I've seen. It really stands out but in a good way! Anyway, I'm a fan of your work. Keep em coming!

    Thanks man :) 

    Thanks guys, alt mode comes tomorrow so stay tuned. Payton, I bought this for $33 on Ebay brand new in the box. In fact, I just bought another one for $33. There's quite a few on there for that price man.

    Thanks! Yeah, I went for a clean airbrushed look.

    Thank you, I considered the same style glow effects I usually do but I just really wanted these to stand out and I think they do :) 

    Guys, thanks for your comments, I enjoy getting your feedback!
