    Thanks again everyone!
    AM- You know it. Oink oink! Good thing I didn't go for the black repaint, huh?
    They can start knocking those off Ratbats anytime as far as I'm concerned.

    Mouth would be challenging but would look fantastic if done well.

    Dude, you have to draw the little squiggly mouth. (I think it's actually meant to be a highlight on the original character model, but Jose Delbo consistently drew it as a little scowly mouth.)

    I pulled this bad boy down off of the shelf and took a few new pics.
    I started to paint up a Laserbeak to go with him, but the damn thing's wing snapped in half while I was working. I don't even know how I did it.
    Anyway, I'm still happy with this guy.

    Wow, fantastic job, this would go great with my Quakewave!!! I love everything about it. My personal taste would be same purple on the guns / cannons as body.

    Nice! This is exactly what I plan on doing with Ratbat's Soundblaster accessory.

    His wing tip broke right along a stress point on the joint. It can be glued and stay in bird or tape mode, but the stress of transforming him snaps it right back off. I'm not sure any glue would be strong enough because the area is so small. I think I would need to replace the whole thing, and that's just not going to happen.
    On the plus side, it's not like I don't have a bunch of tapes lying around.

    Looks beautiful.

    Cartoon Soundwave may be more iconic, but there's something special about the purple faceplate-less Marvel version of Soundwave.



    I think this is what Hasbro should do with the Soundblaster/Ratbat set. Ratbat was pretty important in the Marvel comics and in those same comics Soundwave was purple.

    So funky! What a fantastic idea, I think this might be the first Marvel-style repaint I've seen on an MP Soundwave.
    I hope you do decide to make an alternate head, sans faceplate. It would really be the icing on the cake.

    Looks amazing! I plan on doing this too, someday.

    You know, this'll also make a great G2 Soundwave. :wink:

    Great! I'd also like to see a second head without the faceplate.

    When they announced MP soundblaster...I could give a wet fart less....if they announced THIS, I would buy it. Always loved the marvel colors on a lot of the characters. Soundwave was great, and looks good here. I would recommend a deeper purple/maroon type color...but it could be just the pics.

    Lookin good!

    If you need a replacement laserbeak apparently the KO tapes are pretty good. Nice custom nod to the comics.
