    Another project i want to get started on, after seeing another thread here about an ipod soundwave, i also wanted to give my favorite decepticon of all time an upgrade..=).

    so im hoping instead of a cassete player, his alt mode would be and ipod.. =).. seems pretty ambitious thogh, but gonna try to give it a shot...

    gonna take a lot of scratchbuilding once again since an ipod is pretty thin, and i want his alt mode to be that way...

    *im currently working on his blueprints and gonna post it soon.. any advice would be greatly appreciated.. thanks.. =)

    *since the g1 soundwave is a bit bulky... im considering to follow his tf prime version.. which is much sleeker.. gonna try to mix the 2 concepts... =)

    here are the planned blueprints of him i made via MS Paint.. =)

    Since an Ipod is so thin, why not turn that into 1 or 2, heck maybe 3 of the cassette guys and have Soundwave as an Ipod dock?

    Nice idea. I have an "Ipod bot" myself that i have been thinking of modifying it inclucde a touch screen MP3 player, here is what i have. He currently is a working radio but in time i will make him into a MP3 player. Also, the arms are transformed incorrectly, they do sit up in a more natural position.

    If you can find one of these you might be able to get away from making it from scratch. The alt mode is about 4" tall and 1/2" thick. And the bot mode is about 6" tall. Good luck i hope to see this pan out for you.

    that might be a good idea.. lol.. gonna try that as a back up plan if my idea fails... or if not, i might get away with making his ipod alt mode a bit thicker than the actual one so that his parts may fit...
    woah, thats amazing.. i was planning of adding a mp3 player in his chest as well.. once i finalize my plans.. gonna try that.. thanks..

    Really, the thing about an iPod Soundwave is that you have the opportunity to have him in protective shell case. That gives you a bit more thickness to the figure and more opportunity for engineering room.

    I like this idea. It seems quite ambitious though. Oh and my iPod touch is named Soundwave.

    This is a great project that I want to see completed. But I can't help but wonder if this should be in creative discusion.

    What about an iPad or an iPhone with a thick case instead?

    Your blueprints look really good.

    That being said, blueprints are illustrations and those need to be posted in Fan Art. When you have actual, custom work to show, by all means feel free to make another thread in Customs (and be sure to include a link to this thread!).

    Keep up the good work! :thumb
