    Hi all. I've decided to start a new thread for this. This is another kitbash that I'm planning on doing, and I've already begun some of it. I'm currently waiting on the head and gun hand to get here. I've done a rough digibash of what it's going to look like in the end. The grey in it is going to be silver. I did this fairly quick, but it looks good enough for what i need it to. Comments/criticisms are welcome. Thanks for looking. Peace out.

    you should try to do the alt mode too before you start physical work. Are you planning to change the gunmode's outward appearance so he doesn't look like a twin to megatron?

    Interesting...

    What I would do is remove the orange cap on his shoulder and replace it with a piece that looks more like the barrel of Shockwave's laser gun.
    Remove the fusion cannon and stick a little fold up target dish there.

    Look forward to seing what you come up with. :D

    Looks like there is going to be a headless/handless purple Mazda driving around soon.

    Had the same general thought myself.

    Although I wonder how your altmode will look.

    Do you plan on just ditching the wings in bot mode like g1 Primes trailer?

    I think the gun mode would need serious work to truly be a Shockwave figure.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm going to be starting an alt mode digibash here soon. I'm not going for a G1 accurate version, but more like an updated Classics, with some of my own touches. The only thing that I'm going to need to change about his alt mode is to at a little target thing on to the top, and somehow hide his gun hand. Peace out.

    one of shockwaves signature body parts is the chest (see g1, binaltech, energon) i think you should make it so that in robot mode he ends up with something that simulates his chest:thumb

    Hey guys. I missed one detail on his bot mode, so I've posted an updated version of that. I've done a quick alt mode digibash. It's not perfect, and it's not complete yet, but it gets the basics of his alt mode across. I'm going to add a small target thing to where the old scope was attached. Thanks for all the comments. Peace out.

    What you should do, is ditch the gun halfs, and find anew way to hold the gun mode together. Also, might I recommend some... more elaborate colour?

    I do love your digibashes.

    Well, for one thing, this is my own interpretation of what a Classics Shockwave would look like, and not G1. I still need to do the details of the alt mode, but I have gotten the basic color scheme down. I'm making him look the way that I like him to look, because, well, this is my kitbash, and I don't plan on selling it unless I have to in the future. I've been working on a back story for why he is similar to Megatron, and if I do it right, I might make a fan-fiction out of it. If I'm able to get a hold of another head and gun hand, I'll do the twin of Shockwave that I've created. That will be explained in the back story that I'm working on. If anybody can help me get a hold of another Alt./Bin. Shockblast head and gun hand, that would be great. Thanks for looking. Peace out.
