    Now that I have a decent mp3 player I want some speakers for it....
    So should I find a cheap blaster and modify it into functional speakers, or should I make a more modernized version that has a spot for my mp3 to be mounted as well as multimedia card slots that will hold the replacements for the cassettes?

    Nice idea, i had the thought of putting my MP3 Player into soundwaves chest to have him as the player, but lack of skill and effort prevailed and i skipped it, i look forward to seeing your finished piece though.

    Well Dirge it's looking more like a modernized option. Anyway a Soundwave mod was never one of my choices because soundwave has no speakers.

    That's the idea. My mp3 player takes SD cards so it seemed like a natural evolution from the original cassette bots. Should be an interesting challenge.

    I'd say do something respective of the character, but make it custom. I have an iPod Nano that I use and play music on all the time, and it would be bitchin' to have a transformable Blaster or Soundwave body to go around it.

    Time to start designing the media card bots.
