    I have been slacking for some time...but here is some WIP of my Shockwave bash. I had a lot of left over stuff that kind of made sense with this one (left over tank from Energon Megs, Hasbro Classics Megs and a Dreadwing head). With a magnet up his butt (and right shoulder) and a little dremeling and apoxy putty...poof...Shockwave.

    I know, I know it part forms, sort of...but it works I think.

    Painting will come soon...hopefully!

    There is nothing wrong with "partsformers" as long as they work & look cool.
    I think this will turn out great. Only thing I don't like is the Dreadwing head the way it is.
    Maybe rework it a bit with epoxy putty for a more classics look ???

    I agree also. Maybe energon Shockblast might work, but still its your call. As far as this custom goes its very cool.

    i think this looks great the way it is. nice utilization of the megs cannon btw.
    however i can see where NP is coming from. maybe sharpen up the edges on the head. give it more of a six-sided feel. shrugs shoulders. as always, your choice. good work none-the-less.

    Thanks for the nods...

    ...I agree as well. I was going to add some bulk to the head, I like the 6-sided idea. Would love to do an Energon Shockwave head, but as I said, these were the pieces I had available.

    Still a WIP but the head will be the first thing to get a treatment.

    But an Alt Shockwave Head (With a two sided ball joint) would fit with the exsisting Mold better.

    Oh crap I totally forgot about the Alternator Shockwave, good call. But still its kalron's call on this one, but hey at least give him some options though and those are always good. Come to think of it maybe Movie Swindle would be a good choice, maybe.

    Need some more HELP!

    Tried messing with the head, but there is only about .5 mm of space running around the exterior its lodging place in ALT mode. I could remove the "ears" and get more space, but loose some of the coolness.

    ALSO,
    I was considering removing about an inch from the end of the barrel. It is so long because I tried to save the "projectile" feature, but that did not work. It is ok as is, or should I shorten the barrel?

    Suggestions would help...

    You know, if I make a new chest plate that will fit over top the "trigger" and can be removed and replaced in ALT mode I could dremel out the "head case" and make a larger head!!!

    Thanks...and yes I will be taking an inch off the bottom of the barrel.

    Added new shots of Bot-mode painted.

    Found this new paint, it worked really well. ALT shots tomorrow when paint dries.

    ALSO did some moding, Apoxy sculpt the head some w/ dremeling as well as shortened the cannon.

    Actually this one came about because someone offered me an ALT Shockwave head, but after I replied they never got back to me...so I had to improvise. I would love to use that head though.

    Added ALT pics...I'm still going to add a chest plate when I have more time.
