    earlier today my boyfriend brought home transformer masks with the 3-D glasses built in. I was very upset because there was no Con mask, so I set out to make one. this took about 45 minutes I took an optimist mask and added a new head crest to turn it into Sound Wave (kind of). it's not perfect but at least I won't be a smog sucking autobot!

    After the premiere, I think I will paint the eyes clear red. That way it will have more of a soundwave look. but for practicality I'll leave it untainted for the moment.

    just in case you're wondering this is what I look like on a go-kart!

    You should cruise past people's houses slowly with the Soundwave mask on.

    They do make a transparent red that you could use - but I understand not wanting to risk it before opening night!

    If you add some more pointy bits and some silver paint you could totally have a movie Soundwave helmet.

    Cool concept regardless though. Nice work!:)

    I found the transparent red and decided it would be worth it to paint the eyes red. I also painted the mouth guard part gun metal to further distinguish it from the Optimus helmet! Thanks for the advice.

    Thanks everyone for looking. I'm so excited for the premier!

    I did wonder what you looked like on a Go-Kart, thanks!

    Brilliant work getting the factions (partly) evened out. Makes the movie-going more fun for sure!
