    I do like the bulkyness of his lower legs, but now his thighs are too thin. and his torso isnt long enough to make him look better, other wise he has megaman legs.

    About a 7, not because of the legs, but the torso being short. Even with shockwaves original legs his torso looked short.

    If you're looking to sell this, might i suggest painting the new parts to match the original parts. Otherwise it looks like Shockwave wearing khakis. Then the usual bit is to throw it up on Ebay and see what happens. Good luck!

    Ok Pal, the ideia was great.

    I would advice you to paint the whole figure in a same purple tone, and then add some details in gold or silver. Even add some bulk on the thighs and then mod Brawl´s feet with some epoxy. After you had done that, considering it turned out good, you could possibly think on selling him for 150 U$D.

    But we need to talk about ego. Like, who am i to say that, after all, i have some good ideas on my customs, i just don´t have the ability to do it.

    Bro, really, like, don´t you have an calculator? A 20 buck toy + a 40 buck toy (even considering you bought the toy in the time of the first movie, there are just the legs,about less than 50% of the whole toy.) + your ''effort'' on switching the legs. you an charge ,lets say, 50 U$,and its still too much!

    Returning to the ego. There is something in the way you speak (or write, lol) that bugs me. like, you come, show us a version of the toy that, anyone with the two Tfs + a kit of tools, could do. You then ask us to grade your toy, and then you try to offer us this ''custom'' for a day-light robbery!

    Man, analyzing the way you write, i can make a profile of you: By the way you write, with NO accentuation at ALL, you are not older than 10.by your post account, You entered this forum just to show your custom. ( 3 posts, the same posts of this thread)
    Here are some advice's for y´a:

    A-Check if your parents allow you to use the computer.
    B-Check if your parents let you modify the toys they give to you.
    C- Be humble.

    Just a few tips, so that you could be a better person.

    BTW:Remember your place in the world, like most of us, you are not the boss around here.

    C'mon gentlemen, if the guy wants to sell his work for 150 bucks let him try it out. It doesn't mean someone is willing to pay.

    Hey mate, i´m from São Paulo too. :) 

    This dude, lets consider he is joking. Is it fair for us? Some of us come to show off their works, with a positive intention. Others come to write positive critics about their work.

    Then this fella arrives, thinking he can joke around? And with a ego the size of an elephant? His post are rude,cold. He could be friendly, that would change a lot the way this thread is going.

    I agree with you, Joey. He has the right to show us his work and try to sell it on ebay but. Does he have the right to joke with us? Would it be fair for someone to buy his work on ebay?what if a kid, whit ingenuity on her mind, decides to buy it?

    He has the talent, he shouldn't give up customizing, but he´s better wait until he´s got to know how to deal with money or with the internet.

    The fuckin legs aren't even painted. Like hell I'll even consider buying this thing ever.
    EDIT: I just looked at this guys profile and found this:

    About mickane88jazz
    Favorite TF Character
    ironhide
    Favorite TF Toy
    ironhide
    Favorite TF Generation
    omega supreme
    Favorite TF TV Series
    inferno
    Gender
    Male

    Apparently Omega Supreme is a TF Generation, Inferno is a TV series, Unpainted legs going on a Voyager Shockwave is accurate and someone will buy this for $150. I smell a spambot people!

    Hell yeah!

    A have taken a look at his profile yesterday, the spam bot issue never came to my mind. But, after i have read the last post, it may be the case.

    So , mickane88jazz, prove us that you are ''real'', ´cause if you´re so, you are probably reading the people hammering you in the thread you have started.

    So, reply. DO SOMETHING. Make your stand, defend yourself. C´mon, if you are not a Spam Bot, you are reading this.

    BTW: If you Reply, please, use proper accentuation.
