    So I wasn't happy with the arm laser FoC Shockwave had, and I knew I had an alternators Shockblast that was missing tons of pieces in the garage..
    So I popped Alternators shockblast's arm off and cut the ball joint off it.

    I then looked for a way to attach it to shockwave without modifying the figure. I realized where his fist folds there's a little indentation.. So I scoured my parts box and found a bracket to some innard of a transformer that has become custom fodder and I cut it. I then dremeled it down so it "clipped" into the slot, and then cut the rest of the bracket away and just super glued it to the shockwave blaster arm..

    I'll probably go back and paint it black (just to hide it a bit nicer) but overall I'm 100% content with the end result!

    Sorry for the pic quality, just snapped it real quick with my cell phone.. I need to dust my table as well it seems.. :)

    Looks good. I plan a similar course of action for when I get my own Shockwave.

    I like this a lot more than the giant cannon FOC Shockwave has. I always thought of him as more surgical and less brutish, as the FOC cannon would suggest.

    I'm back-and-forth on this one - the FOC cannon looks great to me, but this is definitely more G1.

    Does it connect anywhere in alt mode?

    Looks great...But part of me is crying inside for basicly ripping off the testicles to one of the bests Alts...

    A 3rd party should cast that exact part and sell it.

    So far i havent tried to fit it in alt mode. i will see if i can store it somewhere later.

    The nice thing about the cannon is I can switch back and forth at any time. Thats why i didnt want it to be perminent.

    dont feel too bad, he was a junker. my alt shockblast is on display in his cabinet as he should be. this one was missing doors and such (got it in a junker lot)
