    A near complete WIP Shockwave commission - just got to add his shoulder decals now. Also made his cannon arm to be able to be interchangeable with another fist.

    This is probably the cleanest version of this custom that I can recall seeing. He looks fantastic!

    Thank you! I also thought he had huge feet too :) , I didn't realize the proportions improved, thanks for pointing that out to me!

    Geez Guys, thanks!!

    Thanks, he was prepped for transformation but his alt mode just looks incomplete, it'll be up to the owner to decide what he wants to do :)  as we discussed.

    Thanks Earl!

    Thanks guys! Frank, good to see you around man!

    Thanks guys, much appreciated! I used Classics Treadbolt arms for him and then filled in the gaps where his armor would've gone.

    This is nicely done. The paint has a simple, seamless approach that really makes this piece seem like it was molded this way.

    However, I have to ask a question... I notice a lot of people have approached this Shockwave project by attaching Classics Jetfire arms to the torso. Is there any particular reason for this? Do the Jetfire shoulder connectors just fit perfectly on the Shockblast body's arm sockets?

    Echoing everyone else - VERY smooth and uniform! I'd probably ask you to do one for me if I didn't expect a 3rd party one in the relatively near future
