    Ask the guys who post in the AZ sightings Thread, I was DROOLING to get a ROTF Soundwave for months. Why? Cause Soundwave/Soundbalster are hands down my fav Decepticons of all time. Yeah, sure, Megatron is super powerful and evil, Galvy has a cool Alt mode, and Starscream is a treacherous bastard. But Soundblaster is a one man FREAKIN ARMY!!!

    When I finally got my extra, I started playing with this fig. Nothing fancy. Boltgun Metal, Chainmail, Mithral Silver and some brass layered with Gold for accent, and that lil bit of Blood Red that says Sounblaster.

    I'm still fighting my pics, sso any feedback is appreciated. :thumb

    That's very cool, that paint scheme fits this figure very well.

    Very nice. I love your drybrushing and as with all of your work, it really makes this figure 100x better

    Nice! Soundblaster was the first thing that popped into my head when I heard Soundwave was going to be in ROTF. I'll try my hand at making one if I can spot two for sale somewhere...

    'Bout time someone did a Soundblaster haha... i thought i was going to end up doing it first, but never got around to it...

    Love the colors, i think it makes the mold look better compared to the silver/grey.

    looks awesome. I suggestion I have about the pics. If you are running them through an editor, like photoshop - you should use color correct. This usually helps my photos emulate their true colors. Sometimes, I get yellowed pics or the color's off. If I run the same "action set" on all the photos, they match well and there isn't any shift in color balance. Also, might wanna check your camera's setting - make sure you have the correct type of lighting set up. Solscud showed me this at TFcon...I had mine set to "auto" and he swapped it to florescent - now the whites are white and the reds are red, etc.

    That would be a cool colab!
    Anyways Soundblaster looks really good, though some of the pics came out with a rosey tint.

    Good color scheme. Look much bigger, realistic and heavier with this painting, doesn't look like a deluxe ....
