    Studio Series Soundwave needed some color, so I added some.
    Work done:
    • Silver paint on the head, on the mid-section and anywhere I thought it would look good.
    • Washed the vents and darker gray areas, like the hands, with a dark ink.
    • Gold, red, blue and yellow wiring.
    • Airbrushed the speakers on his arms, inside the chest panels and shoulders.
    • Blue wash on the inner thighs.

    So much better! I like the overall look of the base figure, but Hasbro should have worked out some budget to pick up his subwoofers.

    There is absolutely no difference, aside from the darkened vent pieces, but I'll transform it sometime this week. I honestly just don't like to since the chest pieces fall off during transformation.

    Man what a job you did with the painted little details, especially on the arm speakers (Which in my opinion, should have been already painted in the retail figure, I know that budget issues are a thing, but without those details he looks like a bland sea of silver)


    And those tiny details, they look pretty sharp. Nice work!

    Can't unsee his abs as a smiling little clown holding the car's front end in place.
