    I still have a lot of work to do painting and sanding. But I wanted to post something since I had't done so in a while so here he is My latest Wip:

    Inspired by Solrac333: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/224280-classics-soundwave.html

    After seeing Solrac333's custom a while back I decide to make my own Soundwave. Giving him a quadchanging transformation: First being a Mobile Sound Satillite unit. Second will be a Standing Comunications Defence unit. Third being the G1 classics IaconCity lightpost. Also last being Soundwave bot mode.

    Please let me know what you think about my idea so far.

    Sweet idea man, definitely go for it. Those pics give a nice picture of what will be happening. Looks like it's going to take some time and planning but I'm sure you'll pull it off! Looking forward to seeing the progress and end result of this!!

    Looking grand so far! Which TF are you using as the base figure? I recognize cybertron Soundwave's head and chest, how about the rest?

    It looks like he's using Armada/Energon Demolishor legs...arms still a mystery. It looks wicked sweet though.

    YES!!!!!!!!!! Awesome. You gave him better feet and a proper chest and a more Soundwavey head. Nice!

    The base figure is a Universe Dropshot (from the looks of it). I really liked Solrac's Soundwave from this mold and this is also awesome (the head and chest really make it look great). The alt modes are awesome also. Can't wait to see more on this, man.

    That looks really good. Where do the treads go in robot mode?

    Thanks Guys!

    Yes it is Universe Dropshots body, Cybertron Soundwave head and chest, feet are from Alt Skids modded a little to fit , and Treads came from Energon Landmine. Oh and all the weapons came from various figures: G1 Soundwave blaster and cannon, a random GI Joe Satillite dish and sound transmitter. Claw and small sattillite dish are from Optimus Prime trailer.

    Not sure where the Treads will go yet in Bot mode, for now they are just a parts-formers that clip on to the arms in alt mode to make it mobile.

    Very cool idea. The communications tank mode is outstanding. There aren't nearly enough Cybertronian Soundwaves around. I wouldn't mind the treads on him in bot mode at all (back of the legs, maybe?). Partsforming is fine for his satellite dish and weapons, but I feel that such major components should be more integrated.
