    So I started this guy two nights ago. This is what I've got so far. Knee joints were donated by a broken Machine Boy Vortex figure and biceps rotation is possible due to some Lego pins I had lying around. I also cut his wings and improved his proportions. Now I'm testing a new cybertronian tank altmode but I'm open to new ideas. I'm also posting pics of the whole process. Thanks for checking this out.

    That's an awesome-looking tank! In concept I don't like the idea of the entire robot forming just the turret and cannon, and leaving the entire tank as backpack, but looking at it in pictures, it just looks so cool.
    If you want ideas alt mode... Leave the tank as it is, it's really cool. But it seems it would be easy to make it a triple changer.
    What I'm thinking: The shins have a lot of space. You could hide one half of a nosecone inside each. Then give the forearms little foldable wings (similar to the shin flaps it currently has, but opening to the sides). They could cover the forearm spaces in robot mode. The nosecone and wings make him into a space shuttle, without affecting the look of his robot mode at all (and filling those spaces). You could even call the tank treads a crawler-transporter like Sky Lynx has, in that mode.

    Overall looks great,man! One of my biggest gripes on figures though is open gap syndrome. I would suggest maybe filling in those upper inner thighs with some styrene pieces that you could then add some details too. Regardless,I'm digging this creative job. Keep it up!

    Nice! Too bad even the KO G1 Shockwaves aren't cheap anymore on ebay as his original backpack would look aces on this and serve the same purpose.

    Have you thought about using the leftover backpack from an Energon Shockblast? When I was looking at the backpack they popped into mind. It has so many moving, sliding, pivoting parts it might also work for you.

    Thanks! Honestly, those gaps bug me too. When I finish the whole project I will probably try to fill all these gaps.

    Thanks! I've got one but the backpack is way too wide for this figure, actually I'm looking for something thinner.

    This is exactly what I was looking for and the first thing that sprung to mind when I started making this custom, but unfortunatelly I sold all my previous customs based on Energon Shockwave I've had... Weel I'll keep an eye to see if I can ever find another junky one so I can have access to this sliding/folding tank piece.

    So, as I'm not sure if tank mode will be a thing, for the backback I have for it is a lot bigger than I want, and I'm not certain if other backpack will sustain the weight of the whole body without colapsing, I have been working on his jet mode instead.

    I made him some detachable wings that can be removed in order to switch from his flight altmode to a possible tank altmode and now he can also form a laser gun altmode too (kinda silly but it is a thing). The wings can also be positioned in different ways, normal and with the turbines frontways.

    Sorry, for the blurry pics btw.

    Now I made him this second configuration for a more classic approach on Shockwave with his backpack. I'm still working on this third altmode which probably will be a space cruiser.

    Looks good! Simple and clean.

    By any chance are you planning on removing the knee joint on Siege Shockwave?
