    I've always loved the design of Cybertron Soundwave but the original figure was just so bad. So, for my first custom transformer, why not recreate my favorite character design using one of my favorite molds in recent memory?

    So here he is! I designed, printed, and painted the head and chest myself, but other than that I used a siege Thundercracker as the base with some parts swapped from Starscream. It's an incredibly simple process for such an excellent result, if I do say so myself. I'm going to set up a shapeways and cults link so you guys can buy the designs, and I'll post a link here when I do. What do you guys think?


    EDIT: Now available on cults3d!

    I've been waiting for someone to do something like this, not to make Soundwave into a seeker, but to replace the earth jet chest piece that makes zero sense. Now seeing how it might turn out, I'm 100% sure that something like this will this mold way better.

    While I love the idea of that, I'm not about to fully paint a seeker or hunt down a Skywarp to accomplish that lol

    Multipack hotlink would work as a cheaper alternative, if you were fine with stripping paint, but that's also quite the effort

    Nice idea. How come you didn't swap the feet too?

    There we go--with his blue tootsies, now he's more like Cybertron Soundwave.

    This is really awesome. Soundwave is ready to lay down the beat on those autobots.

    This is also really great for a first custom. Keep up the good work.

    Hasbro needs to do this. They've already been doing Cybertron.
