    6.8.11 update on site 2



    heres a try to rebuild the robot mode of soundwave as a car (no altmode, only posing).
    i mixed up parts of rotf soundwave and movie longarm with several custom tf parts and a led-g1-style-shoulder-cannon (longest word in the world). i`ll also adding some more custom parts.
    now hes much taller und heavier than the old soundwave. hes one of the biggest deluxe class tfs now.
    at the moment i cant decide which colour his car parts should get. white like in the new game, blue like in the movie or a mix between them?

    ok, here are the preview pics:

    hope youll like it

    The build is extremely impressive, but those two circular things on his chest are way too big. Now they look kinda goofy. His arms sit a bit too high as well, and the wheel placement on his shoulders look a bit odd. Maybe you could fit them ontop of the cylinder, so that it sits in between that and the shoulder wings? Might look a bit more natural.

    Other than those things, it's looking great. :thumb  And why not based his colorscheme on the unused ROTF concept art? Black vehicle kibble with blue robot bits. Could look stunning.

    Interesting, nice idea.

    Personally, I like the idea of the white alt mode, perhaps with some blue or blue-ish robot parts; but i guess we haven't seen a movie render yet to know (judging by the model that made it to the game tho, it should look great whatever). Go with your own colour I guess, it's your own take on the design after all :)

    Yes.

    I love your concept, but it's still in wip so I'm sure you'll fix many areas.
    One thing for sure, at least to me, is that his waist is too small.

    i decided to settle down his amrs and man, that looks much better !
    i like the big circular things, it makes him much bulkier.
    perhaps ill find another way for his wheels. lets see.
    thx!

    yeah, ill add more parts to his legs and shoulder-cannon and i think his waist will get taller. thanx!

    and thanks to all others for comments

    sorry for bad pics.
    scratchbuilding is now at 85%. need to do something with his shoulders and his shouldercannon.
    i nearly changed everything to version 1. set his arms down, removed shoulder wheels, made him smaller and bulkier (yeah his waist, too :p  ), made new chest, claws, etc.
    used a metallic black as base. car parts will be blu, like in the concept from ra88.
