    First off, Happy New Year everyone!
    Been a lurker since I was 12 lol, but the first day of 2021 will mark the day of my first post.
    Uhhh let's also call this a celebration to the release of Cyberverse's Deluxe Soundwave.

    This is my custom Legends Soundwave, made out of Legends Class POTP Beachcomber ofc.
    I've been collecting legends scale toys since 12 or even younger if I count the first time I got a legends class Cliffjumper and Barricade 2-pack from the 2007 movie.

    Inspired by the Evergreen(and to an extent, the Cyberverse) design, I wanted to create a G1-esque Soundwave that does not turn into a Casette Player, but also without having to buy Third party figs, and so I looked to the beachcomber mold lmaoo.

    Painted using mostly permanent markers and some acrylic paint. Kinda bummed I used a darker blue instead of the lighter one, which you could see a bit on the shoulder, could have been a better match, but all in all, it is satisfactory for me. Head's mask was sculpted using cheap polymer clay hardened with superglue, while the horns are made of leftover Gundam V-fins.

    I did not want a vehicle where you could see the seats and/or drivers inside, so I created a covering using some 3mm Lego parts, and black paper, hardened using super glue.

    Laserbeak and Soundwave's shoulder cannons are made out of simple Lego pieces, used a Megatronus Prime Master, as uhhh a FRumble, not yet decided.

    Some Vehicle mode photos, 2-block mini(micro)fig for scale. Yes Prime/Titan Masters can still sit inside, in both modes.

    Alright I guess that is all, sorry for the messy post, still working on it, may update with new photos and perhaps new minions or comparisons with other characters.

    Thanks for reading, comments and criticisms are open of course.

    My pleasure. By the why, remember this. Blue text is sarcasm.

    Not a figure I would've expected to see a Soundwave from, but it works surprisingly well! Good job, and welcome! :)
