    Hey folks!! I just wanted to put up a couple wip pics of my version of TFTM Soundwave and Laserbeak!! Ever since I saw Payload with that big, blue, blocky body of his I wanted to mod him into Soundwave. The tough part of course would be turning that grabber claw into a respectable looking minion to take care of Soundwave's lightwork!! Well as you can see Soundwave himself hasn't gotten much attention yet! I will parts-form the grill into his chest door, as well as correct the head. I've got a couple other things in store too, real hush-hush kind of stuff!! LOL!! Laserbeak was one tough little bugger to get looing good while having good articulation and still being able to fit in his master's chest!! A tall order for sure, not made easier by using the capture claw as the base! A real gear Booster donated the head, feet, and a leg section to make the neck. The legs are made with sections of Doc Ocks tentacle claw. Some styrene and brass rod stock tossed in there, too! Lot's of fine tuning left, but I think he's presntable enough for some wip pics!! Thanks for lookin' and keep on bashin'!!! ENJOY!!!

    that is an awesome mod. once i get another payload, i'm going to turn the claw into a hand held weapon. But that idea doesn't compare to this!!!!!!!

    That laserbeak is great! I'm really impressed.

    I'm going to try Energon Cruellock for the head for mine.

    Um.. the head for Laserbeak or Soundwave? I guess you mean for Soundwave, I never thought of that! The top half is right on, the mouth area would be a nice movie style interpretation!! I like that. I am waiting for some Hydroshrink so I can reduce the size of 'ol Soundwave's noggin! I know he looks a little, uh, DETE-DE-DEE!:lol  Thanks evey body for the kind word!!!
