TF Scrawls: Soundwave by Jochimus TF Scrawls: Soundwave by Jochimus
Transformers is the property of Hasbro, etc.

Here I reworked my Soundwave-as-van concept into an animal control van - primarily because it would better facilitate the idea of Soundwave's cronies having beast modes, as most of them do.

In addition to a Movie-influenced head, I also gave Soundwave a 'cover' of sorts with signage identifying the van as the property of 'Klaus Animal Control' - that's 'Klaus' as in 'Claws', as in 'Dr. Claw's' ;) (Though I suspect if this were a cartoon, his voice would be more in line with the 'vocoder' voice of G1 days).

As for the beasties' mug shots down there, I tried to make their color schemes either darker (like Beastbox) or more natural-looking (like Laserbeak) - I admit Ratbat didn't quite turn out the way I wanted in terms of the coloring. This I coupled with the idea of giving them much sleeker beast modes than what they had in G1, so as to enable them to better pass for the animals that they're disguised as, particularly in shadow...this was probably in response to the fact that in G1 there weren't many beast modes that could suitably pass the 'robots in disguise' mark - I mean, the Dinobots all had chrome- and gold-plated parts (not to mention the fact that they were disguised as dinosaurs on 1984 Earth) and the Predacons were all bright orange and yellow, so I was trying to aim for just a TAD more realism to the situation.

You should have been hired to design the Transformers in the Michael Bay movies.

Those movies would have been a lot better if you designed the Transformers.

Soundwave's head looks like a cross between G1 and movie. I like it!
