Alt Soundblaster by superquad7

My Alternators Soundblaster stems from the Scion xB Alt Skids mold. I painted most of it with a gloss black, and I used a gold acrylic paint marker for the grill and trim. I wanted a "limo" tint for him, so I took the same gloss paint I used for the body and some Future floor polish for the slicker finish on the glass. The head, weapons, and Laserbeak are all from a Cybertron Soundwave. I altered the head slightly (the "ears" are sanded to a more straight appearance, not sticking out like the Cybertron Soundwave toy's head) and I've painted the guns using a flat black. I also wanted a nod to the Japanese HM series from G1 (front label) and a very subtle nod to the G1 toy (rear glass).

The weapons transform into bass boxes and Laserbeak transforms into a set of woofers. I removed 3 of the 4 seats due to the sound system, making SoundBlaster a one-seater. The red "speakers" on Laserbeak were painted with the same "clear coat" red (paint custom mixed by myself) that i applied to Soundblaster.

Soundblaster is one of my most involved projects to date. It was a labor of love, and still remains as one of my favorite Alternators customs.
