Classics shockwave

So here's my classics shockwave im working on. The usual mold and kit bash parts. Takara Laserwave mold (wished i had a cheaper energon six-shot..apparently they aren't so cheap anymore), and cybertron scattershot (or universe dropshot). now im wondering what route should i take for his laser hand, or whatever you refer to.

something simple like modify this into his arm (off of topspin tfcc exclusive):



or something like this (got this off of a energon scorponok):


i could actually get half of this to sit in his arm and the rest stick out. what do you guys think. comments, criticism, or any kind of help appreciated.

Good start.

You know, apropos of nothing, but every time I see one of these customs, I wonder why someone hasn't just gone ahead and done a Shapeways (or even home-print) upgrade set with a mirrored version of the shoulders and a blaster that just plugs in to Scattershot/Dropshot/Overload/Flak/Whoever's fisthole...

I'd go with the bit from Top Spin. I've always thought of Shockwave as more surgically precise than a huge cannon would make him out to be.

I used the tip of the DotM Shockwave cannon.

That said, the rectangular-styled cannon on the TF: Prime animation model is growing on me.

I need that mold so bad.I like how he looks with 2 normal arms,maybe something of cannon that can be slide on and off? or I liked TJ's Shockwave using classics megatrons cannon.

I was looking DOTM shockwaves cannon as well as bumblebee ha, but that would make the figures useless...sorta. I think ill go with the blocky cannon first. It'll be able to remove (screw n unscrew...if everything turns out well. ) and I'll try the skinny one too (should be able to attach to hand when folded in) ...after finals this week that is.

Is there still that much interest? Seems like these have more or less died down, and Energon Shockers is hard to come by (comparatively) these days.

It'd certainly be do-able...

That's a completely valid point. I don't know what all is necessarily involved in generating that sort of thing.
