    Here is my attempt at a Generations Soundwave. Nothing special with him really, except a small hole on his shoulder and needing to strip the paint off the chest piece to redo it (It's a little thick).

    No, the specialness comes from the Kingbat figure.

    I liked the Kingbat figure's trident and jet modes, but the bat mode sucks. I saw a post where someone used a Kamen Rider figure repainted to be Ratbat. So I went a bit further and cut the KR figure in half, added G1 Reissue Ratbat guns and some brass tubes to strengthen the haft of the trident and used more tubes to make the old Kingbat "wings" plug into the new wings, also using tubes for the new wings to be plugged into Kingbat's side panels.
    There are two brass tubes in each of the pieces of the haft of the trident, a 3/32 inch piece for the cannon end and a 1/16 inch at the butt end, the 1/16 inch piece circled in the pic is a bit longer so it can plug into Soundwave's shoulder. This design allows for more strength for the haft of the trident (no more shaking apart). Yes all of this makes him a partsformer, but since the original Kingbat was also a partsformer I think it's ok.

    Let me know what you think of them.

    Those will be the Autobot clones Fastlane and Cloudraker, they are waiting on a piece from Shapeways that Process designed for them modified from his Prime Blades.

    The trident and jet modes are normal modes for Perfect Effect's Kingbat figure. I just strengthed the haft of it and to be better proportioned for Soundwave I left one of the extension pieces as a cannon next to the middle blade.
