    So, this thing is finally completed.
    It was a labor of fanaticism, but well worth the time and efforts (at least to me).

    Parts used-
    Protoform Prime torso/upper arms/pelvis
    Cyclonus legs
    Red Alert feet/ankles
    Wreckage hand
    Dropshot cannon
    Gundam neck/balljoint
    Term.:Salvation chain gun belt
    Reprolabels
    LOTS of styrene/putty/glue/swearing

    Painted in lacquers, acrylics and enamels.
    (He's a lot more purple than he looks in a few of the pics)

    Hope everyone likes it!

    Thanks!
    It's Testors spray enamel. Kind of a metallic purple, but the true name escapes me at the moment.

    No, he transforms (See the W.I.P. thread). There just isn't a photo of it in this thread yet.

    Looking good.

    Approved by the one who loves Shockwave more than everyone else does. Me!

    I don't have a clue what the altmode is, but the robot mode is enough. Major props sir.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Yes, it transforms, it's not an 'action master' piece.
    The alt mode's an artillery cannon, but I just didn't take a picture of it yet. I'll probably add that later.

    Here's the WiP thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/363875-classics-shockwave-wip.html

    @Joey- we're of the same mind. I've been a fanatic of the character since his original appearance in G1 all those years ago, so I'm glad you approve!

    *Drools* very nice! If I may ask though why leave the gun purple? It's always been silver and would probably stick out a bit more if you did paint it metallic.

    It's actually a different shade of purple, with a silver undercoat and a purple 'glaze' on top. The difference is noticeable, but it's all in the angle.
    I may go back and do some quick swipes of silver on it to make it stand out more.

    Bot mode kicks ass. Nice update. Unless you made the cannon mode look different than what you have shown in the WIP, the cannon mode doesn't look that great, sorry.

    Sorry you don't like it.
    The colors pull the cannon mode together a bit more than in the WiP, and I've repositioned the legs to make more of a stand rather than a base.
    I'll take pics later.

    Thanks!
    Honestly, I hate the Energon mold. I have it, and will not display it in my Shockwave shrine.
    That's one reason I created this. I wanted a Shockwave to display with my Classics, and refused to use that... abomination.
