Anyone who owns HA Soundwave knows it is plagued with problems. The proportions are terrible, he is much too short, and his lower half isn't screen accurate. For a few years, I've been contemplating ways to rectify these issues, but never got around to doing it because I was afraid of ruining the figure. Well, since the knockoff version has dropped the price significantly, I decided to take a shot. Much of the inspiration for this modification comes from the personal project by Black Apple here: 联盟声波改造贴！_黑苹果出品吧_百度贴吧 Although there is no tutorial or transformation sequence, I was able to glean some information on how it worked from the angles provided in the pictures. My version isn't an exact match since I deviated after running into a road block. Anyway, here is my current progress. The leg is fully transformable and does not cheat or partsform. Also, half of the figure is unmodded to show the difference. As you can see, the mod gives it the added height it needed to stack up next to Bumblebee. His proportions are more even with the shoulder and forearm kibble being moved to the foot. The foot is not entirely screen accurate, but it's a lot closer than before. The shoulder wheels are currently detached and will be added to the space behind its head eventually. That part of the mod can also be found in the Black Apple thread and is much easier to follow from his pictures. I may keep the headlights attached, however. The roof, door, back wheel, and back window are now connected to the leg. I used hinges and joints from legos, one of the Starsaber Minicons, and one of the Sideways head Minicons to connect the pieces. Substantial cutting was involved to give all the parts clearance when moving to their respective positions. I'm going to be removing the "heel" and attaching it to the back of the arm. There seems to be just enough articulation in this foot to allow it to rest flat in a few positions. I wouldn't consider this a great mod to give it cool action poses, though. I'm also looking into ways to make the foot feel more solid and less floppy when I pick up the figure. I was very careful to make sure everything would still line up fairly well in vehicle mode before I made any cutting or glued parts together. There is still one final cut to be made to allow that back window to sit flat. Other than that, Soundwave can safely transform from Mercedes to Robot and back again. This was a huge risk for me because I had never done any sort of modding beyond a few tweaks. Certainly never any cutting. To have this be a success was a huge relief and very encouraging. The time it took to get where I am at was around 2 weeks. A lot of patience and planning went into this before any cutting was made, mostly because I was really nervous to ruin it. Once I have the one side completed, I will work on the other and possibly use that opportunity to create a tutorial for anyone who may be interested in attempting to recreate this mod. Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any suggestions, questions, or criticism!
