I'm back into my Transformers groove, picked up the latest Generations figure of Soundwave. He's pretty cool, poses great, but the Hasbro paint scheme was quite plain and dull. This guy has been repainted G1 style in a beautiful dark blue metallic gloss (Tamiya spray in Racing Blue), with details done in silver,gold, red, gunmetal, and flat black. He's also had some details masked onto his chest and knees to more closely match his G1 style.
I think he's turned out to be quite a looker, possibly even nicer than the Takara version of this figure. I was thinking of beating up his paintjob a bit to make him more battle-damaged, but I couldn't bring myself to dirty up that lovely blue! :D
He's posed with the Ravage USB figure.
