    WIP: Desert Storm Shockwave

    made from DOTM Skyhammer and some DOTM Shockwave bits along with the head of alternator shockblast.

    still in early stages. alternator shockblasts head is slightly too large to fit and transform so thats what im working out now. anyother ideas for shockwave heads?

    Why not use DOTM Shockwave's head? Is it not the aesthetic you're going for?

    This. Plus, it just would look better on that body in my opinion.

    Looks awesome so far! As for the head, maybe Energon Shockblast's head?

    Oh, for some reason I really like how this looks. In my opinion this looks better with this head, rather DOTM.

    ...holy crap. I hadn't even considered this as a Shockwave option before, but it is so so right.

    use armada shockwave's head :lol  but seriously, this one looks great. now if you were doing Whirl, DOTM shocky's head (repainted of course) would be perfect. but you're not. so this one works

    Why not make the head removable and then you can peg it or magnet snap it somewhere onto alt mode.

    i've retooled the alternator head to make it fit and added a magnet to the blades area so it can be removed and added to his noncanon side forarm in botmode. its finally ready for paint...

    thanks for the kind words guys...

    Thanks for the inspiration. I'm half way done on the head that I made at work.

    I love this idea that much. I can't wait how yours turn out. Sooo awesome.
