Age of Extinction
Custom of the Week - Revenge of the Fallen Soundwave by Jin Saotome

By Garage Mod on Wednesday, August 19, 2009



Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section. This week's featured custom is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Soundwave complete with tentacles and satellite, by Jin Saotome.

After watching the film, we here at the TFormers office wondered if Soundwave would be repainted or re-issued complete with the satellite that he took over during the film, and it seems like Jin beat them to the punch.

"With all the repaints of Soundwave out there I decided to try something new, adding the poor little satellite he takes over," he tells us.

The custom is complete with tentatcles, which are from "Spawn Interlink parts with Gaussboy's magnets on the ends that attach to magnets on the satellite...All you have to do is get him near it and he grapples it up."

The satellite itself came from some sort of space station kit.

The figure didn't just get new accessories as Mr. Saotome also modded the figure including a major modification to the hips so he can stand up tall. "Add some Tamiya Silver Leaf paint job along with some space-debris-wear and he's ready to get his groove on in outer space!"

See the full custom gallery in the customs and kitbashes section in our forums.

YouTuber chuckdawg1999 has reviewed the One-Step Changer Galvatron from Age of Extinction, and in his estimation it's the best of the line, with a nifty and unique transformation method. It's worth seeing for yourself, and it's a good and concise review at 3:48, so keep reading and check it out!
Michael Bay has previously suggested he might leave Transformers films behind, but kept coming back for more, but this time it may be the real thing. Having stated again that he would leave the franchise to other hands after Age of Extinction, Bay has reinforced this by engaging in talks to direct an upcoming project, "13 Hours", as reported by Variety. If Bay becomes attached to this film, it would likely keep him too occupied to get involved with production of the fifth Transformers movie. Unless Bay reverses once again, we may be looking at a Transformers movie under new guidance.
