    Reason:
    After Dark Of The Moon hit the big screen, i dont think there was a fan out there that didnt want to in someway make or own their own custom version of Cybertron's Clycloptic Assassin, i was very much in that category. I must have racked my brain for months trying to think of what to do to very own voyager, small ideas here and there hit my cranium at the same time custom after custom shockwave were being posted on the Radicons, LOL. Then my wifey went out and got me the Dark Of The Moon Video game for Xbox, so one night while i played and wifey was reading, for whatever reason a light bulb switched on and i was like "WHOOOO WHOOOO!!!!" Well she about had a heart attack as did i. Turned off the xbox, did some research and got down to business, So after 5 month, blood shed, 3 attempts, getting my fingers glued 2gether, news of baby on the way, losing job, moving, getting new job, wrong shade basecoat, right shade basecoat, too much bascoat, stripped, re-doing, DROPPING it (special), fixing it, he is done.


    *Cut and added bit of plastic, junkers and an Original Shockwave figure
    *Slightly Re-Designed his Arm Cannon and added a ball jointed wrist
    *Cut and linked together 2 Original Cabels for more movement for Arm Cannon
    *Sanded down and clean each piece
    *Added slight ware and tare to him
    *Base coat in Krylon Metallic Silver then Over sprayed with a Semi-Gloss Chrome Purple
    *Instead of doing Silver for the mechanical parts of Shockwave, i did a mixture of colors to add
    *Added Rhinestones in the back Turbines
    *Sealed with Future Finish
    *Do To the mods and using a different mold, it does not transform

    Does it still transform?

    Love the design. I think the grays are a bit too light in that they seem like separate pieces, but the purple is spectacular.

    Ok, questions.

    1. Where did you get that tiny matrix of leadership?

    and

    2. Um, yeah, I'm going to be needing one of these, so how much is that going to run me?

    The large silver torso and large silver legs really make the arms look puny. I would suggest beefing them up a bit or slimming the thighs.

    Doesnt Transform. Thank, I wanted those bits to look like that, almost like its his bones......i know it sounds weird, but i think it looks fresh.

    LOL, Thanks man? ;) 

    PM'd you sir. Thanks for you interest.

    You know, i thought it did a bit too on the pics but you just have to have him in hand, for some WEIRD reason, they look a bit small but are very smooth with the rest of the figure. I dont like to do ANYTHING to a custom that is finished unless it is super simple, with my luck ill mess the fig up. Maybe in the future if i do a Version 2 of him, ill look into what to use to beef up the arms. Thanks for your words.

    Thank you.

    Good looking S.O.N. Very much appreciated

    HEY, i was thinking the same. Thanks bud.

    I thought most would, :)
