    Here is my latest work. Custom Soundwave / Classics Soundwave

    Parts used for this:
    Titanium Soundwave (Thanks to somebody who sold me this toy on these boards...sorry, I don't remember who it is.)
    Classics Ramjet, Robot Heroes Soundwave for head.
    Head is mounted on a balljoint found on legends Fireflight.
    You may realize that the radio mode is'nt much but the robot mode kicks it!
    Really, the titanium with diaper was a nightmare and I knew I could do something to improve it.
    Enjoy!!!

    I really don't understand why they didn't just use a shrunk down version of the original will ball and ratchet joints added. I mean his design was already pretty much perfect 20 years ago.

    That being said this is a huge improvement. Tapedeck mode suffered, but the way the designed this guy seems ot force a compromise in one mode or the other. Love what you did and he looks 100 times better in bot mode now.

    If you just added some fold down panels to the legs, to make the radio have a perfect rectangle shape, the radio would look pretty decent.

    Damn thats awesome. I gotta say when I opened my Titanium Soundwave I was uber sad at how terrible the figure is. That is alot better!! Even the alt mode isnt that bad. I would have taken that over Diaper man.

    Thanks guys!
    It's funny nobody mentionned anything about his head.
    The Robot Heroes head fits perferctly on this body and is pretty much toon accurate.

    Tape deck mode isn't any worse than the Titanium version, at least. :) 

    Excellent work!

    Or found a way for the crotch to slide up into the torso, and the knees into the shins.
