    I always thought that, despite the cassette player mode being awesome, soundwave needed an update. So I took it upon myself to create this rough draft of what the final figure will be as well as plot out the transformation scheme. The final figure won't be as thin but he will still be somewhat 2 dimensional wich I think suits his prime counerparts aesthetic :) 
    Mostly it is pipe cleaners and cardboard, also some plastic for the screen. Any suggestions on what to change for the final figure will be greatly appreciated :D

    Cool idea. If you could make this out of styrene it would be so much better.

    Try using Rumble or maybe even Eject. You could even fit a small ipod in it. Or a Zune if you wanted the vid screen. Touch screen could be kind of a bee atch tho. Was thinkin of doin this but I'm not smart enough to work it out.

    Here's my concept art.
