    Looks pretty neat. Really clean looking paint job. I'm wondering if you plan on painting or adding a sticker where the decepticon insignia was on Classics Megs. I think it would help break up the pink on his chest. Can't wait to see alt mode!

    Still don't think the pink looks right. It should be a lighter purple. I think the "face" might look better if painted black. Perhaps you could dye the gears a different color?

    How does it look with the wings on?

    Sorry for sounding critical. Just giving my thoughts.

    Looks good....that came out nicely...

    Dont know if I missed it, but you plan on doing something with the symbol on the chest?....you know, adding a little detail to bring it out color wise..

    Looks great.

    Only thing I can really say "against" it, is that you need to break up the pink on the chest a bit.

    Holy Crap!! That is awesome, raven. Pretty impressive. I have to agree with some that you need something on his chest to break up the color a bit, but on the other hand this is your custom and to me if you're happy I'm cool with it. 'Nuff Said. Can't wait to see the alt mode pics though.

    Looks awesome dude!

    But the pink still bugs me. Maybe paint the con symbol?

    May jsut be the way the photo came out but not a fan of hte pink. Would have gone with a lighter more blueish purple for those parts. Also i'd say maybe dry brush over the decepticon symbol to bring it out some.

    Overall he looks really sweet though and definitely feels the part of ole Shocky:)

    Everything looks great except the pink. It really stops this from being kick ass.

    That is one sweet Classics Shockwave. It's your kitbash, and if you like pink, pink it is! If I can happen upon those KO Classic Megs, I think I'd definitely do your kitbash, but with these colors:

    Thanks for the comments guys. Yes, the pink is exactly the way that I wanted it, so it's staying that way. The decepticon symbol is also the way that I want it. It's supposed to be there, yet hidden in a way that you really have to look at his chest for a while to notice it, lol. I might add a rub symbol to his wings at some point. I'll be taking more pictures later today when I take pictures of Perceptor who I'm about to put back together. The pin wasn't that hard for me to take out, lol. It seems to be one of the hardest pins to get out on any figure. You might have to go with the heating it up method to loosen it up.

    You're keeping the pink? And no D-con symbol?

    The pink was my decision, and it's my kitbash, so, it's staying. And he does have a Decepticon symbol. Like I said before, it's there, but Shockwave in my opinion would want to keep it hidden in a way, lol. I'm happy with it, so, it's staying the way it is. I am however going to shave down the ears a bit so that they don't get in the way of his transformation. Here are some pics of his turret mode.
