Its kinda odd all these years of drawing transformers and yet I've never done my own take on Sound Wave till now.
A few key features that might need to be explained...
the Ipod/SG colours. Honestly I didn't feel blue fitted the pic.
The alt mode is a rather loose take on a spy craft you would see on cybertron. The idea behind this was that I'm not a big fan of vans/trucks for SW and jets are really more StarScreams thing. Also having a made up alt mode made it easy for me to keep his G1 silhouette.
something that's actually been sitting half done for a few weeks and finally finished tonight
no alt mode pics but like my old design they have been changed the general shape is like a tear drop and that becomes with a few bits of kibble moving around a Shark, drag car, helicopter, jet, and a turret (ok the turret is the sucky alt mode no one ever uses)
EDIT: Yes this is the original picture that was used by hasbro Asia without my consent in the bonus coin packet (and as of the 29/09/12 still no recognition)
The X-4 acts as an middle-close range assault unit and as support for the X-1 by providing cover firings. Attached to an armed module which armed with 2 large beam sabers, machine guns and grenade launchers, she is capable of massacre of a small company of enemies. One important thing is that this unit also serves as an ECM unit to conduct electronic warfare and jamming communications to 'cripple' the enemies in major battles.
Most of the time, the X-4 is paired with the X-1 to penetrate enemies in the front line and due to it's sizes, the X-4 has limited spaces for actions unless she detaches from the module. Nevertheless, she can still uses a variety of hand-wield arsenals to provide fire supports for the X-1.
been a long time since I've added anything... Sadly working retail over the holidays has killed any desire to really sit down and draw something but now I've got some free time back I've got my ass in gear and this together.
I didn't want to change much from the original design looks wise but I wanted to try and work out a few issues mostly to do with how the train parts are shown and how the arms fold away.
The Norn is Aesir's first mass production Knightmare Frame, based loosely on a Sutherland Frame while incorporating newer Britannian-stolen and Aesir-made technology improvements. In this sense, it is much like the Lancelot Club in terms of performance. It draws some design aesthetics and cockpit features from India's early Gekka model on top of Britannian aesthetics, rather than drawing influence from its mother unit, the Einherjar.
There are two types of Norns; the original produced for Aesir, and a variant used sparingly by the Order of the Black Knights, which was deployed for their use in operations during the assault on Tokyo, and operated some time afterward up to Zero's return. The original Norn features some internal systems- Geass related, that the Black Knight version does not have. It also has jump thrusters similar to that of the Einherjar, allowing it the ability to launch itself to great heights without the aid of slash harkens.
The second Norn, known as the Mk. II, lacks these features, but includes overall performance improvement to make up for the gap; they are essentially equal in performance, though the original's capabilities can be drastically enhanced depending on the pilot. While the Mk. II was eventually phased out of use by the Akatsuki, Aesir still uses both lines of the model as their primary mercenary forces, though they are slowly being replaced with newer 9th generation models.
This is a Franken designed by me and thus not an original, from-scratch creation, though it includes some original tweaks and parts in the design. Arts used belong to their original creators and not me.

I officialy hate my scanner.
Powered Convoy's repair bay mode. To modernise things a little I based the Convoy robot on the deluxe classics Prime. I like how you can see the wheels on his sides ^^
So before transformers, it was Diaclone. And this is powered Convoy. I always liked the Ultra Magnus toy, and the Powered Convoy original tops it!
I got a WST Ultra Magnus in Diaclone colours a week ago, and I can't stop fiddling with it! I finally found some pics on the internet that reveal the original Japanese Diaclone figure has a 'base' mode and a repair bay mode not shown in any instructions for the Magnus toy. If you have a G1 magnus, go play, all the intended modes are still possible. The only thing missing is his powered buggy. The original diaclone toy's 'Convoy' robot was a slightly lighter blue than that on the trailer, making him different than Hasbro's Diaclone Ultra Magnus. They made all the blues the same colour. For some reason I painted this Like Hasbro's instead of Takara's original.
