    This is my second ROTF Soundwave. With he first one (http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/256148-classics-movie-soundwave.html), I took all of the kibble off, gave him G1 colors and gave him a couple of new alt modes and placed him with my Classics collection.

    My bother wanted me to paint him another figure and this time it was ROTF Soundwave. Last time he got http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/241951-henkei-cyclonus.html. This Soundwave got the same treatment as the first one. G1 colors. But because he's ROTF and I kept the kibbles and satellite mode, I added a little more detail and tried 2 shades of blue.

    I know doesn't it? I tried posing the kibble in different ways other than the official way.

    it's good that you did. the shoulder ones did nothing for me so i took them off. really they just felt weird being there in the official placement.

    Yeah, with a lot of the ROTF figures, I posed them in unofficial poses and look better.

    Thanks!

    Thanks. This time, the silver parts nave a more solid look. The first one I did has a more weathered look.

    Thanks. I have on more ROTF Soundwave to paint.

    I think when I do the next Soundwave, I'll make him a blend of the this one and the first one. Add more detail to the panels. I like the light blue I used for the crystals but I don't know if I'll do it again.

    When I saw the junk Michael Bay put on the big screens I was most disappointed in Soundwave, then I saw the toy. I cried, right there in Target. But with your paint job, he's Soundwaveish again. I like him. I could decide which of the two I would want on my shelf, but I applaud you.

    Very nice, not too overblown on the details, very clean and pro. The colors are perfect. Looking at it next to the original makes it look like it's metal and the original is just cheap plastic. I'd display it!

    Nice bump. I see that I last did a ROTF Soundwave back in August. I'm actually working on the next one right now. :) 

    I haven't decided if I should paint him in the same color scheme or if I should actually paint him in the ROTF colors.

    I have a good friend who was asking me about Soundwave recently, and I thought his idea was pretty cool.

    How about a Shattered Glass movie Soundwave? The white, silver and metal blue will rock!
