    Here's my shoot of Titanium Soundwave. He was a little hard to shoot because his legs are very loose. I got him to stand legs extended on the base, but after that his upper legs kept falling down. There is no way to help the crotch look any better, you can pose him like I have with his legs pushed in at the hips, but that's it. It's sad, because he could have been much better, but his "diaper" waist and looseness in the legs spoiled it for me.

    Anyways, here's some pics so you can judge for yourself.

    wow... cool pics.

    But yah... his crotch is extremely odd.

    If i get one I might have to leave it MISB.

    Here's a question... is his crotch part of the diecast, or is it plastic?

    That's another one of the downsides to diecast metal TFs... if you would normally be prone to kitbash, the metal is a heck of a lot harder to work with...

    The crotch is plastic and has slide grooves on each piece (it unfolds in half and lays flat on the bottom in alt mode)

    And after having him out, I wish I'd kept him MISB :( 

    At least Rodimus is nice.

    After looking at the pix of the Tit and the G1, I have to ask why did they even bother? The G1 is so much better.

    it pains me to love soundwave as much as I do, yet still not see any reason why I should get this...

    Sooo... if the crotch is plastic, would it be possible to cut off that extra bit at the bottom without completely botching the transformation? (that is, if you're the type of person who doesn't mind putting your TFs under the knife :)  ) I'm assuming that part is there for a reason, but you never know these days. Some TF engineers have blind spots a mile wide it seems.

    Does anyone have a pic mid-transformation so we can see how the legs actually align?

    Is something like this possible?

    EDIT: Wait... I see what you mean now about a sliding joint in the hips. Argh.

    Wow, they screwed him up bad, Soundwave was such a straight forward transformation, why did the mess with it.
