MAN-E-NEWS// The custom carded Soundwave GI Joe from Airmax…

Slipping under our radar upon release a couple of months back, we couldn’t resist sharing this amazing project from Airmax after laying eyes on it last week… Taking 2 of the 80’s most iconic cartoons/action figure lines,the 4″ tall GI Joe has been meticulously customised to look like the Transformers’ Soundwave! Replete with accessories, real lenticular chest piece and some of most realistic card art we’ve ever seen (created by Gorilla), the figure, unlike many of the similar customs we’ve seen before, has been completely recast! Limited to just 5 pieces, these were quickly snapped up for a very reasonable $80 each… anyone interested in picking up a similar piece should keep a close eye on Airmax’ work over at the Hisstank forum.
