I'd be down for a kit even if it ends up being a small run. I've yet to own the Energon Shockblast/Sixshot mold, though. At this rate, I might have to cobble one from my parts bins

I do like the yellow blaster, it'll make your Shockwave unique and menacing.

can you use the blocky gun bit as the forearm and perhaps half of the red bit as the tip? not sure if someone suggested this but i didnt see more then the first page.

I could try that too.

Here's the initial fitup of energon blaster. Not facing the way I'd hoped ...but ok so far.

One of my favorite projects that I ever did was a Shockwave conversion kit. I'm not plugging my kit because it has long since been unavailable. I just wanted to share the link in case it is useful for any ideas. I really like the arm choice you have made with your custom so far! The laser arm is always the challenge with this guy

Thanks for the reference. Jeez, if only that kit was still around....would've been much quicker. Lol.

Well just started painting using mm deep pearlescant purple.

Think I need to shorten the gun though

Hey bud. I too have made a couple of customs like this, but I used different arms though.
I still find this mold the better option we have to make a decent Shockwave for the Classics collection.

I saw this pic from the cellphone game last night and I thought it could inspire you.

Logic dictates.

Definitely one of your most inspired sets. It's going to take a MP Shockwave to dislodge that figure from the place of honor in my collection!

GREAT color matching, bravo!

I really like this gun arm-choice. Not strictly G1'y, but it really lines up well with the figure's aesthetics!

Holy crap! The artist for that card CLEARLY used a Shockwave kitbash with Dropshot arms as their model! It's almost too obvious! Wow.
