    Hey guys im new to all this and i would say that i am no custom artist, i seriously lack the skills required
    I did however get my animated shockwave through the post on wednesday, and i just knew that his height was going to be a problem for me, ive always intended to display him in longarm mode (cause i have a thing for the elite guards - hence my wasp commission and soon to be ironhide commission)
    He was way to big for the rest of the autobots (even in longarm mode)
    All ive done is chopped his legs down to agood size, made him some new feet and a counter ballance(so he can stand up straight) plus minor paint applications (black bits on hands, chest and white circles)

    Good job man. So are you gonna add elite guard symbols to him?

    Not too sure about putting the elite guard on him, i dont recall him having it on the show and i cant see how i could fit it onto his white chest cause the symbol ive used would be too big to have the red bits coming off it, plus the autobot symbol on there at the mo is the same size as the silver switchy one, if youve got any ideas or ways in which i could improve longarm please let me know.

    You DO know his legs are supposed to be spread more, to give him hip articulation, which lowers him EVEN MORE. I don't see chopping him down as necissary when he's properly transformed, he's only a tiny bit taller than sentinel that way anyway....

    Yeah true, but his legs look so far apart he was like squating to use the toilet, when i got him i tried to make him fit in but just couldnt do it (much prefur him this way)
    Might do the same to blurr - depends on how tall he looks compared to the rest (at the mo i think blurr is just alittle bit taller than ratchet which aint too bad
