    My TRU finally restocked their LOCs so I got the first ones for me to custom that aren't seekers :lol  (I still have to make a Thrust one) I picked up a Soundwave and a Vector Prime. I've not messed with VP yet, but I'm going to make an LOC version of my Alpha Trion custom with him, and I still need a third Soundwave, so I can make a Blaster. But, I started with the easier of them, Soundblaster! If you didn't know, I already repainted my first Soundwave, to give him all the paint aps he was missing, so he looks just like his full-sized counterpart. Well, now I've done this again, but so he can stand in front of my Galaxy Force Soundblaster! I sure love the black.

    For the black, I used Krylon Fusion satin black. for the red, I used Testors acrylic "dark red"; Testors metallic silver for (guess what? silver); and for the gold I used a Roseart Colorsharp Metallics gold paint marker. For the reds that mimick the translucent areas of the big guy, I mixed the same red Testors with Testors metallic goldflake to make it a little shinier. I topped it all off with Testors spray on flat "lusterless" clear coat, so he looks like a real toy, colored plastic and not a toy that was painted.

    Dude I'd so pay for a FULL sized Soundblaster. Granted I'd have to find myself a second Cyb Soundwave first but still....

    A word of advise on the LOC Soundwave mold: Swap just his upper legs with each other. That way you can turn the upper legs 90 degrees towards the outside and give him forward leg articulation without the legs popping out of joint.

    Awesome repaint.;

    Looks great man! I've got a spare for the same idea, I've just been too lazy to actually make it. Plus I have no gold. :(  Hadn't thought of using the spray paint on it though, maybe I'll do that if I ever get around to making him.
