Soundwave Full Body Design by timshinn73 Soundwave Full Body Design by timshinn73
Here's the full body design I made of a movie style Soundwave. Photoshop.

Had a lot of fun working on this design. I got a lot of feedback from other Transformer fans that helped me decide what this design should look like. This, of course fan made and has nothing to do with the TF movie. Just having fun trying to find a balance between the movie style and retaining as many classic visual cues of the character as possible.

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you might have.

The only thing I personally don't like is his wrists look too skinny. Other than that, this is phenomenal.

I think Ratchet arms would fit better because your Soundwave is a Armored Truck(?) and the deisgn would seem more plausible if the arms came from the back of a Search/Rescue Hummer rather than a Topkick pick-up. Nevertheless, your photoshhop job was brilliant.

Here's a model I built based on this Soundwave design. Might give you a little better idea what parts from the vehicle go where in robot mode. [link]

This is probably the best Soundwave I have seen. Good Job! Is there anyway to get it without the letters overtop? I want to add it to my favourites, and I think it would look better without the words overtop of Soundwave. If you can't do this, it's fine with me, I'll still add it to my favourites.

Soundwave for Transformers 2!

I LOVE Soundwave. He's looks excellent. I would only change the colors a bit, but I'm just a fan of that navy/white contrast he has. Your gallery has spoiled me, I'm going to forever hate the live action designs for Bay's movie.

Soundwave is so cool. I was a little bummed that he wasn't in the movie, but it worked out well anyway.

I think the Balkan is an awsome pick for Soundwave and he still looks like how he did in the G1 series.

Cool Cool Cool...... :D

Yup!

It'd be awesome if they asked to use this design for the sequel!

I wouldn't blame them if they did!

Speaking of asking to use this design, my friends and I are going to create something of an animated sequel to the movie for a webshow we are still working on. Though he won't appear for quite some time, would you mind us using this completely awesome design as Soundwave's?

I have no idea about his voice. Of course I hope they use Frank Welker's original take for movie Soundwave.

Ho. Ly. Shit.

You have made Soundwave look so much more badass than ever. You made him like he was in the new movie, and he STILL looks so much like his original self.

You are my new hero for giving him a monstrously awesome look.
