    Here is the Shockwave I put together in the Botcon "Customization" class.

    The class basically teaches you to assemble a transformer as if you worked in the factory. It should be more of a kitbashing class where you start with a figure on the card and learn how to disassemble, paint, and then reassemble it. It was a rush to finish assembly during the class - not because it's hard or too many steps, but mainly because they didn't have enough tools. We had to stand in line a lot (with no lunch break if you wanted to finish). Anyway, I had fun and expected nothing too organized going in anyway. I took it home to paint and finish up. I stayed pretty close to the recommended paint scheme, with only a few minor deviations.

    Great job! The toy looks pretty awesome aside from the shade of purpe being a tad bit too light for my tastes. But besides that, I must say the Jazz mold is perfect for Shockwave.

    It's what Funpub gave us with the kit. I agree they are weird.
