Where do those minions come from?

Damn! Those look nice and seem to scale well.
Weird request but, can you guys share fan-mode pics like this.
I got this from a guy named jazzercize._.217 on Instagram, and I thought it looked neat.
It doesn't have to be the siege space barge thing, maybe pics of lamp post mode or anything else you can come up with.
I am considering buying him but like, I just wanna see its custom potentials ehehe...
Isn't that interesting, mine has really loose shoulders, but really tight hips and elbows.
I've futured his knee pins to hopefully tighten them up just a bit, as they're a bit floppy. Got Soundwave and Tracks today from Amazon, it's a nice little Soundwave, but something about him just feels a little "off". Not really sure I can put my finger on it quite yet. Still, glad I got it.
Happy to find this guy the other day.
Unhappy to open him and feel how loose his legs are. Like its so bad, mine wont even stand.
Guess hes saying in tape player mode.
I've got mine today, saw him in Gamestop. Yeah, the joints that are on pins are all looser than they should be. I'm gonna have to get some future. Also what is the stuff actually called, so I buy the right thing in the store?
Ordered the Tim Heada replacement feet before I knew about the Go Better ones, otherwise would not have ordered them. Ended up annoyingly with 2 left feet. The finish of the nylon joint part is quite rough. Overall, not that happy with it although alt mode looks better. Hoping to get the Go Better set in the mail later this week.
So how long before we get multiple sets of cassettes made for this scale? I need to get a Glit some day, some way, and it may even end up an affordable option this way.
His is a great little soundwave in his size, and the removable Laserbeak is more fun than it has any right to be.
Hi sorry to bother anyone, but can someone who has this figure see if he can be placed into a Perceptor-esque microscope mode ?
Kind of. If the ‘batteries’ could be connected it would make a more convincing scope.
I also unlocked turntable mode.
Thank you very much! He isn't out in my area yet, but I believe I'll have to pick up two now.
I see the complaint about his feet in alt mode a lot, but it doesn't bother me. I'm pretty certain his feet done like that is a reference to boomboxes like the one pictured below with two side-handles. I reckon they're trying to move Soundwave away from micro recorder to regular tape deck without having to do a whole folding handle. Plus it'll look good if they ever redo this mold as Blaster. Side-handles are a happy medium between original Soundwave who didn't have a handle and Blaster who had a regular carry handle. Be simpler and cheaper to implement too.
Received the Go Better replacement feet and gap fillers set a while ago and put pictures in the upgrades thread. Usually, Go Better does great color matching, but it's a bit off in person. In this case, the pictures make it look closer than real life. Granted, it's difficult matching swirly plastic. The blue panel matches well, though.
No, it's not an actual reference. They mentioned something like that in one of the reveal streams to try to cover up the obvious foot design gaffe. Has no resemblance to handles regardless.
Good catch, that’s how I’ll look at it from now on. The feet sticking up never bothered me that much.
Finally found one of these guys today. Gonna have to Pledge the crap out of his various leg joints and his elbows, but it's fine because I loves me some adorably tiny (and reasonably priced) Soundwave.
This should be better than it feels, really. Ball joint ankles, but for their effective range they may as well be hinges. Joint tolerances are all over the shop, with loose hips and thigh swivels, and overly tight shoulders. The elbows would be fine, but the sculpting surrounding them just makes them liable to pop off when something catches. And then the back of each weapon goes from a flat underside to having a fully round end, just enough to not be able to sit fully flush.
The box man who turns into a box should have been a home run, but he's merely fine. Proportionally, he seems a little stumpy as well. I wonder how he would compare if, instead of half folding the feet away, the torso was slightly taller to account for the feet?
