DOTM Cyberverse Legion Soundwave As Advertised Image

I did this new custom on one of my last days of R&R before returning to Afghanistan.

Originally, I didn't plan on doing this figure simply because it looked ok as advertised on stores onlline.

So what had.... happpened was....

During break while shopping with my wife, we saw Soundwave in an aisle and I scooped him up. Then to my dismay.... :( The figure didn't look as advertised! (Image Right)

Kind of dull, right?
So.. let's see, I just got a new Airbrush and Compressor...
But... I don't have much time to spend on a custom...
And so it was decided to make Legion Soundwave into a quick project!

For inspiration:

I took a few image stills of Soundwave from Transformers: Dark of the Moon such as the one below and then added my own styling to the figure.

For styling, I dusted his alt mode with various hues from light blue to white silver. At certain angles and lighting he will appear more blue and in others more silver or white. I also wanted the figure to look slightly modified with black light covers and tinted windows to make alt mode seem a little more menacing. Some Panel lining was done on the inside of the arms with red and outside with black.

Overall, the custom took more work than I thought it would. Masking such a small figure turned out to be quite frustrating, so I ended up painting the windows by hand. Oh and man... some people may find doing panel lining hard on regular figures, imagine doing it on a legion class figure whom's base is a light color. >:O

Well, fortunately I got most of the figure complete. Unfortunately, due to time constraints I didn't get to finish because I had to wait for the top coats to cure. The figure is just pending some fine sanding to make his out appearance more smooth.

To make this, I used the Transformers Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Legion Soundwave mold. You can get one here.
