    Repaint of ROTF Soundwave. Started off with the Jin Saotome hip mod, then did a mod to his "wings". Paint is done almost entirely in drybrush with Tamiya Chrome Silver, Metallic Blue, and a custom Metallic Red. The clear blue parts are done in glow-in-the-dark blue, but I can't for the life of me get a good picture of them glowing. Gonna keep trying and will post them once I do. Also, once Ironhide sells, Soundwave here will also be available on ebay.

    Thanks everyone.

    It's very easy, and really makes him look better. When I first got him, I kept thinking, "Damn, this guy is short!"

    I just did the hip mod on the BB vs Soundwave 2pack version. Looks great. My TRU has a dozen or so of the regular Soundwaves. Now I can't wait to paint him up to look like this. Outstanding Job!!

    This looks awesome. Never was a fan of the gritty "dirty" look, but its definitely working here. Maybe the figure just lends itself to that look or something, this one and the Sideswipe mold are probably the best of the ROTF line. Good job!

    Well, I've been trying for a while now to get a decent shot of Soundwave's glow-in-the-dark parts. This is the best I could do with the equipment I have.

    Ah! Soundwave seems to have a very,very hypnotic effect now that you brought up the colors in him. Great drybrushing skills!

    That looks great!:thumb  My Soundwave's still in the package cause I can't bring myself to open the ugliness. Now you've got me thinking of trying my hand at re-painting him. Anyone got a link to the "hip-mod"?
