Soundwave, Superior (sketch)

Transformers will forever go down as one of my favorite if not the favorite cartoon that I used to watch when I was younger.  I had the die cast metal lunch box, countless coloring books, an insane plethora of toys...I was all about that Transformers life.  And if you have anything bad to say about Generation 1 Transformers, I cannot know you.  Say all you want about the others such as Beast Wars and the movies, but you never speak bad about Gen1.  

And by far my favorite Transformer was Soundwave.  While everyone else loved Optimus Prime and Megatron, Soundwave was that go to guy.  He was like getting 5 Transformers in one (so was Devestator, who was also one of my favorites).  I loved how he talked all logical and had no emotion was always "Soundwave, superior, all others, inferior".  Thats cold man.  And he always had his cassettes with him like Ravage, Rumble, and Laserbeak (who are all pictured above).  And yeah, I'll admit, I thought it was kind of weird that a boombox could transform into a 50+ foot robot, but we're not here to debate the small details.  

I can't wait to finish this one, and I'll be sure to post progress shots as I go along.

Without Wax,
