    I really like the fan mode combination of ROTF Mindwipe and Skystalker. I even have the autobot Strafe repaint with matching Sunspot skystalker repaint. I passed on the Ehobby Dreading/Smokescreen repaint when it came out.

    Well when the Asia exclusive scout class Laserbeak repaint came out I immediately saw a need for Blue ROTF Dreadwing. He can be a Galaxy Force Soundwave. And even more importantly I can shove Laserbeak into his chest like a Soundwave.


    Well I picked up the Ehobby set in a trade while on vacation in Vancouver and immediately took some pics. I swapped the recent Voyager FOC SW head on to Dreadwing. Sorry for the mediocre pics. I only had a flashlight, DSLR, and a white sheet of paper to work with.

    I luckily found a junker Cybertron Soundwave at a nearby mall when I did the trade. So I can compare the two plane Soundwaves and show you my inspiration.

    The FOC SW head fits but sits a bit high on the neck post.

    Here is my Soundwave combined with Laserbeak stored in the chest.

    Also I use Ehobby Smokscreen as Rumble and use the hook weapons as pile drivers.

    That neck could sure use a shortening, but I like it.

    The neck actually doesn't look too bad when you have Laserbeak in the chest since it hides how long it is.

    Yeah it is. Not much I can do about it without cutting anything. But it does work ok when you shove skystalker Laserbeak in him.
