    Inspired by Corvus!
    this was my take on a commissioned project. Shockwave was built from 2 E Shockblasts (for the extra arm) and a few random other TF parts. He's painted in a nice purple metallic and given accents in several other shades of purple, silver and gold.

    The wire on his left arm is from a dollar store headphones, it magnetically attaches to the middle of his back pack. The left arm's module can be removed and a hand flips out. The mid and lower arms come from a Dropshot.

    I thought it would be cool making him a quadruple changer!
    Scroll down, you'll see all 3 alt modes.

    There are lots more and larger pics on my website, so come take a look!

    Sweet custom man. Can those extra guns go anywhere in bot mode?

    Oh and... what, no Longarm Prime mode?

    yep, the big guns go on his back, and the smaller ones can fit into 1 hand or split to put in both hands (has a hand under the pistol thingy on the left side)

    Great purplely Purple!!! I can never get enough Shockwave. Great job as always with the paint. The red smoke is a nice touch to the photo.

    Question...is that 4th mode inspired by the upcoming TFrotf Soundwave alt mode?

    I thought that too about the "4th mode" I wanted some mode that would expose all those cool reflectors and resemble what could be a satellite or something to communicate more effectively with the other Decepticons while SW is on Cybertron.

    yep, I didn't realize the guns from metroplex until you mentioned it. I sometimes snag shit from my G1 box, god only knows if it's rare and expensive. They fit so well, I couldn't resist using them.

    I really don't like the usage of the Metroplex guns (I think it's a bit overkill), and the thrusters from Crumplezone I'm a bit unsure about. I'm also not overly crazy on some of the alt modes, but I do really like the spaceship. It has a Cybertronian-War Within vibe to it that I really dig.

    Aside from that, I have to say you're the absolute, very first artist to convince me to like this mold (sorry, Radicons). Other than what I mentioned previously here, everything else you did phenomenally well. This guy looks nice :thumb

    Nice idea on incorporating the Metroplex BFG's and the Crumplezone launchers. This guy looks super sharp.

    You know Mike I too was thinking of giving my Shockwave four modes has well. They are as follows:
    Satellite
    Tripod cannon
    Tank
    Robot (obvious choice)

    I do think great minds think alike and you nail it from a different perspective, and I like it. Great job.

    It's not too far-fetched to add one extra mode to this figure, as not only does it already have 3 built-in from the get-go, but he's pretty versatile. I love the paint job on this one, but I hate the idea of him having a left hand :lol

    This is fantastic, he looks pretty bulky. I'm loving the third mode, very interesting.

    That is some solid and great work, not to mention your photography skills. Looks really great.

    Man that is one menacing looking shockwave! The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that you can see the screw on his right shoulder. Other than hat he is one kick arse custom!
