    Alrighty, here we have my interpretation of Shockwave in his Earthen altmode of a half track vehicle.

    LED eye and cannon, each on their own circuits. Had to build a new roof to cover the head since I removed Perceptor's shoulder cannon.

    Painted with Model Masters acrylics and enamels, sealed with Future floor polish.

    When I first saw Perceptor I immediately thought

    Shockwave!

    Backpack? Check.
    Skinny arms and thighs? Check.
    Cool see through chest plate? Check.

    I think he turned out great, the hose is removable for transformation, his cannon hand does not interfere.

    Much better use of this mold. I just never saw Perceptor with tank treads. Soundwave sort of, but I think it works really well for Shockwave. Well done sir.

    This mold could work well for a Snowcat as well as a Brawn.

    Thanks everyone! I very much appreciated!

    Thanks bro man!

    Thank you! I must admit my6 Shockwave is suffering from a bit of cannon envy towards your Shockwave!:thumbs2: 

    LOL! I was very close to painting over them, but yellow is a great complimentary color for purple. The side windows are Model Masters lichtgrau (military light gray) with Tamiya clear yellow over them.

    Thanks big E! I actually referenced your TFTM Shockwave from Blackout to help choose the shade of purple I wanted.

    Thanks! its Model Masters grape pearl over lichtgrau gray

    I think a Snowcat would be awesome from this mold!

    True that- its amazing that they produce a mold that fits so many characters like a glove - and then they stick an entirely inappropriate one on it.

    That is awesome work dude- kickass :)
