    Very nice, paint job and the work put into it is top notch. My only critique is soundwave's head as it looks like it's hovering. I guess it just needed some bulking up in the neck area. Other than that, great job.

    I'm a bit dissapointed that they aren't transformable anymore, but they look great! The paints and mods are all all done very nicely. Good job!

    I like how the Sigma 6 weapon crates look with the light coming through them like that.

    Great job on the two, I have a little issue with Soundwave, his head looks a little toony. To me it looks out of proportion. I could be wrong..

    Next thing you need to to do is grab a cheap MP3 player and install.

    I really like these. A LOT. :thumb 

    My only reservations are the lack of transformation and the transparency is gone from the tape deck doors.

    Looks great, except the Soundwave head. Something looks....off? That aside, great work.

    Is it horrible of me to love the display stand more than the customs? :D

    glad to see these guys squaring off against each other....they look great, very well done. The only problem I have with them in the same shot is that it makes sw head look to big and blasters too small

    thanks for the honest feedback guys. I re-worked Soundwaves arms and head. I think it makes a big difference.
