12/4/08: Couple of pics showing the basics of the mechanism. This will allow the doors to be posed in different manners, hopefully preventing Soundwave from wearing a truck cab on his back. 12/3/08: Quick update, pictures will come soon! The door issue has been solved! 10/28/08: Well, I picked up an Offroad Ironhide back in the Winter for $7 on clearance. I really didn't want him, but was too good a deal to pass up. He had set on the shelf in truck mode for nearly a year when I finally picked him up to play with him a bit. Upon seeing that blue truck in bot mode, inspiration hit. Let me know what you guys think so far, and any suggestions you may have. New pics uploaded, reflecting "new" neck and his little friend 10/27: And another update. Taking several cues from Kouri, Soundwave has taken on a "slightly" different 'bot mode. I like the appearance of the closed-up hood, and the fact that it can tilt down and become a hiding place for a minion or a bag of Cheetos is nice too. Flipping his lower legs around alleviated the issue of him facing the wrong direction, and doesn't look half-bad(another way to differentiate him from Ironhide IMO).
