    Started him back in may, but put him on the back burner because of megs, now that megs is almost done, I remembered shocky, and got to work on him, fixed his bow legs, and troll shoulders, then painted him with krylon satin purple, testors enamel silver, gold and flat black, then to preven chipping and rubbing , i finished it with a coat of krylon pretective clear. followed by a light dusting of flat black for kicks. I loved making this custom, and I hope I did a good job, please comment and critique. left his eye unpainted cause the light piping is so good, may go back and put in an LED.

    I love seeing my shoulder mod put to good use!

    What mod did you do to the legs? It's kind of hard to tell aside from not positioning the feet flat.

    nothing, just unscrewed the legs, and removed small piece from the thigh joint, if you look inside their is a small piece that inter locks with the ratchet in the joint, removing it will allow for unhindered movement.

    Congrats man, your'e Shocky came out awesome, love how you were able to give him all those details and weathered effects on his chest an body.
    He looks totally bad ass. If your'e able to install an bright red led light in his eye, that would be the cherry on the cake frosting for this figure.

    When you do this, does that eliminate the ratcheting? Are the hip joints still tight?

    Not sure what you mean by "bow leg". I don't see a difference with the legs.

    The leg joints remain tight, and yes, it eliminates the ratcheting.

    origanaly, shockwave was stuck with his legs spread, I made it so that his legs could achieve any angle I wished them to.


    Undertaking this mod does not harm your shockwave figure in any way, all it does is increase his poseability.
