    In the vein of the "Real Gear Robots" line from the movie line, some company made a transforming Soundwave-style iPod.

    Only problem is the colours were WAY off.

    Since I needed to experiment with thinning my Acrylic paints, I decided on this project to do so with.

    I give you all my WIP Classics Soundwave.

    (Apparently the camera can see through like 2 layers of the paint I used, looks less spotty in person)

    Hmm... The front doesn't look very Soundwave-y, but I like the idea.

    Have you considered turning the head, legs, and arms around in robot mode and using the back as the front? You could make him look more like Soundwave. The "Click Wheel" on the front is a detraction.

    Also, prepare to feel the wrath of the "ZOMG Soundwave should NEVER be an iPod" fanboys out there. ;-)

    Practice makes perfect; you're off to a great start here!

    That could actually be a decent looking robot if they'd have split the bottom half of the buttons off, and split THAT in half, and placing one of the two quarter-circle parts on each leg.

    Awesome. I regret not getting one of these when I had the chance. In the meantime, the Autobots will never know he is there with his cunning Cybertronian disguise. Those clever Decepticons!

    LOL that wheel-cock is killing me!

    Sorry. Can I say wheel-cock? LOL

    I fully appreciate the attempt at updating an iconic character, though. It has great potential.
