    I added a ball joint in Soundwave's satellite mode so he can move his head like he did in the movie. I used the robot head for both modes, since the original decoy head was too soft and lacked all the details necessary.

    But that's not all about the head, I added a cone to make it more accurate, this cone is removable to keep the robot mode intact. Now you can have a movie accurate satellite mode PLUS the cool looking robot mode!

    As an added touch, I painted the Ravage missile with G1 accurate colors too!

    Also I added prismatic buttons to some key parts for a more realistic look, as well as two metallic "antennas" for the satellite mode.

    And I added a display stand for the satellite mode.

    I airbrushed several layers of chrome and metallic blue (using many custom hues of each) and drybrushed all the details on both modes and I added some weathering for more realism.

    Great work, especially the addition of the antenna's.

    The gemstones stick out a bit...not sure how I feel about that though.

    Repaints make this figure look so good, and this one is no exception. Great job, dude!

    I thought you were going for your cartoon-style again, though. :p

    Well, this is an old figure, I just felt I'd share it with you guys, since it remains as one of my favorites :) 

    And thank you all for your comments!
