Decepticon Soundwave by Jin-Saotome Decepticon Soundwave by Jin-Saotome
Communications Soundwave was made from a DotM Ratchet, WFC Soundwave head, hands, chest, speakers, and weapons. I carved out the back of Ratchet's knees so he could stand up straight, removed the claws and added fists, removed plastic so the shoulder wheels could fold over further, and carved out plastic above the waist so the bumper could fold down and lock.

The WFC chest attaches in the gap where the bumper folds down and the speakers cover the wheels like caps. I made an antenna/light fixture for the roof and you can store parts inside/under the vehicle when transformed. After I add a handle and clip to the back of the antenna it will form a rifle for Soundwave just in case he needs even more weaponry. Tamiya Brilliant Blue Spray Lacquer was the basecoat and everything else is hand painted with some warning decals applied. I did edge-shaded-highlights where only straight edged are lightened colors (kinda like cell shading?) and only for the robot mode. It just so happens the hummer's front lights look like a tape cassette showing through the chest, bonus!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, Soundwave continues to taunt my inability to acquire any of his figures! D: Great job! Love the casset tape illusion from the front lights.

Gotta say, despite his stiriking DOTM vehicle mode, I would've liked something like this for his earth mode, It definitely makes more sense, something tough, and that could store data, and other sensitive materials, OH AND HIS MINIONS.

Looks great! (Not too busy, either, like most of the movie-formers.) Where do SoundWave's speakers go in vehicle mode?

Soundwave was quite the com link insider for the Decepticons, so I know he's a true villian. The movie verson of him made him more badass too.

Nice job. One question though: How did you get soundwave's torso on DOTM ratchet?
