    hey! well I'm getting a shockwave in the mail on monday. and i already have arms I'm going to use on him. im using ARMADA MEGATRONs arms. now my only problem is, i don't know what to use for the gun on his left hand. the only option i have right now is UNIVERSE 2.0 ONSLAUGHTS little arm gun.

    buuut what else can i use that i can try looking for?

    and if you have any parts you'd like to help out with, let me know

    How about the gun arm from Armada or Cybertron Red Alert? Also, you could make a decent one using Lego technic pieces.

    hmm. im not really liking those ones too much.

    i think the best ones to use would be either G1 or Alternators Shockwave.
    but prices for those are insane

    Not sure what else to tell you...

    Outside of the obvious, a DIY approach might be in order.

    I used a Classics Jetfire flip-out gun (from inside the boosters) on my Shockwave WIP. I just cut it a bit shorter and glued it in place. I used the arms from an Energon Quickstrike (thanks to seeing a fellow TFW member's Shockwave project from back in 2006.

    Didn't really want to share this until I had pictures, but whatever.

    I'm using Cyb CD Red Alert's arms, and a KO G1 Shockwave gun-hand.

    Good eye on those, will they work for a Voyager figure? Not sure if that Red Alert is a deluxe or bigger.

    The figure's an Ultra, but the arms work perfectly. Really works with Shockblast's beefy frame. I'll be posting a WIP thread tonight.
