    G1 Soundwave *update*

    Heya Team,

    I'm refreshing my G1 Soundwave, and I'm wondering...
    Should I paint the eyes yellow to look like the G1 toy, or should I paint them red to match the G1 cartoon...I can't decide...

    *Update* 3:16 AM

    I finished painting him and the re-assembly...For a junk Soundwave, he didn't turn out that badly...all I need is a set of repros and I'll be good to go.
    A new blue color all around...I used metalizer on the silver parts of the legs, and then buffed slightly. Red accents around the cuffs, and red eyes. White forearms and white control buttons, and we are ready to rock.
    Thanks for looking!

    Get two G1 Soundwave heads paint one yellow, the other red.

    Make it so they can be interchanged.

    Think maybe you can incorporate both of them somehow? Kinda like the MP Grimlock.

    Thanks! In most of the pics I could find of him from the original cartoon, his cassette door was this baby/sky blue. I figured that it looked ok on the show, so it would prolly look ok on the toy. I have decided to use a metalizer on all future projects that need that freshly buffed metal look. If I find the courage to re-paint my Blaster, this is the way I would re-do his legs/sides of the boom box...might be cool to find a way to make better speaker grilles too.
