    Hey guys just letting ya all know that I am still working on stuff. Just been tied up with helping a from out that was in trouble of being evicted. But I have had time to work on things, Mostly this I am really excited about.

    Made form a Energon Shockblast and Sixshot. I bored out a extra regular arm and fitted a scratch built watch battery case ala Jin style and hooked up a 5mm UV LED from Radioshack. And let me tell you that bitch is bright. My dumb self look right at it and had a spot for a good half hour.

    [​IMG]

    The arm block/cover is from a 1/60 PG Gundam RX-78 and the clear yellow cannon is from a Energon battle Ravage. The cannon will either be painted with clear purple or dyed I haven't decided yet.

    Neither one of these pics have been modified at all. This is the raw thing. I love that purple.

    A UV LED right in the cornea? Damn, that had to hurt. Hope your seeing better now.
    And cool custom, I like how simplistic it is.

    Dude post that up man. There is no one better than the other. Make this place like Baskin Robbins 31 flavors.

    Thanks Spoon. Great now I want to watch The Tick.

    It will be in the next few weeks. I have a few commissions that I am working on all at the same time.

    Getting the electronics to work properly is a pain. Every time I think I got it I put the arm cover one and the light goes out. :banghead:  I think I just need to build a more sturdy battery case.

    Honestly the hardest part about doing this custom is getting a hold of the figure(s) to do it. But for as much as people crap on this mold without the buff arm this figure rocks.

    Awww shucks. Shockwave will always be the true leader of Cybertron in my eyes.

    Yeah it all okay now. But I was thinking of adding a layer of clear purple to the tip of the led to minimize that.

    I was trying to get a hold of an Alternators Shockblast cannon hand but to no avail.:(  I have a few of energon weapons and this one was too perfect.:D

    Looking good man, that purple is pretty sick! That cannon cable is a little too thin for me, but that's just personal preference! Keep it up, let's see this bad boy finished!
