    I finished my Vector Tribute bash, and I have been wanting to do a Movie Soundwave for a while, but no figures jumped out at me to be an homage to Soundwave.

    Then, I stated playing with the weapon that 08'' Bumblebee carries, and it hit me. If I could turn that weapon into Laserbeak, than maybe I could pull it off! So, work has started. Here's a digibash on how he should look. I picked up some Tamiya Electric Blue paint, which matches his old color very well.

    There will be some yellow/gold accents through out, and I am modding Wreckages head to pull it off. Wish me luck, guys!

    Edit:

    Updated with current pics. I'm not quite done with Laserbeak, and I have some work to do, so I will have to finish this one later on. want to add a silver stripe in Alt mode, as well as get Laserbeak done. So far, so good.

    The head looks very Soundwave-ish. I don't know about the BB'08 mold. If Soundwave would be a vehicle, you would expect something stronger than a sports car.
    Go for it and prove me wrong ;)

    Looks like it'' be a beautiful piece. Would go for it just to have a unique SW car.
    Maybe give it a ravage hood ornament (like the jags), with ravage tires (instead of radials) etc


    Now Im thinking Ironhide would be cool too, truck bed for tape storage, and he has the 2 large cannons like G1 SW had.
    Could paint all the insides of his leg panels like G1 tapes just for kicks

    Ahem... :D 

    I must admit, I'm not entirely digging the head, but otherwise I see a lot of potential here. Although looking again, the face is okay; it just needs that distinctive crest and it'll be fine.
    A few gold details, as you suggest, and he should very cool. I'd suggest either outling some of the features, like the headlights, or alternatively you could leave the headlights tilted down and use the hood deco (not necessarily a direct copy of the existing Camaro stripes) as the homage.

    Interesting idea, too, about turning the weapon into Laserbeak (though I'd prefer Buzzsaw, myself :p ) I can actually see that working - I'd do the head at the handle end with the wings and tail enclosed in the barrel in place of the blade; when you split the cannon barrel in half and swing the parts back, the secondary barrels would then give him the trademark 'shoulder' cannons.

    I think that if you go with that head, you should paint more of the face silver.

    II like this figure a lot, but I wanted to make a Brawn out of him.



    Yeah, I think I should, especiallly a round the faace mask area.

    I was thinking that Soundwave was always a one man army, but tactical and some what of a scout either with or without the casseticons. I think the 08' Camaro would fit him well. As for Lazerbeak, I am using the head and neck from Booster X10, and his feet as well. I want to try to work a shoulder blaster in there somehow.

    I like the boom box idea, but if the boombox can't release any clones/casseticons/add. Decepticons, it doesn't seem right to me.

    I am building this one. :p 

    Finished the base and topcoat, has a nice "Electric Blue" look to it. Ddebating on going with a white or silver muscle stripe on the alt mode,, and Lazerbeak is still fighting me! Siidenote, I'm also working on turning Cataclizm 1's Grimlock from Longarm digibash into a figure. Should have picss up on Soundwave all nice and shiny by Monday.

    Whady'a think? White or silver stripe?
