    I'll be posting a few of the customs I've been working on and see how
    people like them.

    The first one is WFC Blaster.

    I had an extra WFC Soundwave body due to removing the head and weapons
    for a Generations Soundwave out of a Gen. Perceptor. I used an Action
    Master Blaster for the head, and filled in most of the chest piece with
    mighty putty, then shaved down the front bumper piece and removed the
    side "tusks". Along with a snazzy paint job and his two little friends,
    I think he looks good enough.

    Let me know what you think.

    Oh, Yes the Autobot clones are in the background, but they are waiting on some pieces from Shapeways the Process designed for me, some modified Prime Blades of his.

    WFC is my favorite Transformers game to date, and I love the WFC/WWI character models. Excellent design, and great paint job. You realize I AM going to copy this right??? :) 

    Have you tried to transform him into Soundwaves alt mode? Can we get a pic of it?

    No. Due to removing the side "tusks" he wouldn't sit up very well in that fan mode, but I'll be looking to see if I can do something to use it at some point. Also without the knees to help steady him hurts the over all stablity of that mode.

    Woooooooooow! I'm glad I saw this before I started messing with mine! I planned on turning Soundwave into a Perceptor but this looks 100xs better! Good job with shaving the tusks down and the head is a perfect fit. Mark me down for copying this idea too. Hey imitation IS the greatest form of flattery you know.:lol

    @Javajim Here are some pics of Blaster in the Fan Alt mode. Also I've included pics of him in a Different Alt mode, one that I think captures the feel of the fan mode only for Blaster. Plus the Different Alt mode hides his crotch much better.

    As always let me know what you guys think.

    P.S. Sorry about the glare off the Autobot symbol.

    I went through E-Bay to get mine. It was just the figure no weapon and I paid $7 with $3 shipping.

    Actually that's what I was looking for originally, since that's what Shotokandragon used. But I searched ebay for transformers blaster and the Action Master was one of the first results I saw. One thing you might watch for are the "ear" antannea stick out a bit in Alt mode with the RH head look at Shotokandragon's to see what I mean.

    Your talking about how you can see the tips when in the boombox mode right?

    I've yet to even try to put the soundwave in that position. I'll have to give it a go once it's done with its Isopropyl Alcohol bath.

    Any suggestion for that Red/Orange color?

    I used Krylon Fusion Red Pepper/ Safety Red spray paint for the base red also I didn't do anything to the head, that's the way it was on the Action Master figure.

    Thank you all for the comments.

    I've really just started into this hobby of customizing Transformers, although I used to paint miniatures and build gaming table terrian, along with building costume props like LED lightsabers and modified Nerf Blasters for Star Wars Cosplay.
