It seems that every animated toy that I wanted to own always had 1(at least) thing about them that bothered me. While soundwave is rocks as usual I just couldn't stand his head. I switched it out with a Cybertron soundwave head, painted the whole thing to match with stylings a bit closer to his g1 self. I couldnt seem to get good pics of this for some reason, so its hard to see his "ears." Currently you do have to pop off his head to transform him, but I didn't feel like grinding that whole bigger since I leave him on robot mode anyway. Also is bue is a bit darker and not nearly as shiney as these shots are making him out to be.
