    Here is my take on Shockwave, he is more on a supreme class though.. any way, im not really going for a screen accurate replica since i have a habit of being a bit more creative and adding my personal touches to my works..
    Parts I've used so far are
    -A huge 15" TF1 Optimus Prime
    -Random Gundam parts for his head
    -Random Tamiya Mini 4wd cars
    -a lot of chains(which would be like driller's tentacles fused with shockwave)

    5/18/12
    base figure to be used, a huge 15" KO Optimus prime

    redone the ribcage pieces to make them a lot more movie accurate than the first one i made, and trimmed down the bulk on his back

    -added articulated shoulder plates(ball jointed)
    -repositioned the ribcage once again
    -added more bulk and detail to his upper body

    great start! can't wait to see this finished. actually, these proportions are probably the best i've seen on a LC Shockwave head. :thumb

    yeah. this one looks really accurate and like a LC version of his voyager head. most of the other Shockwave custom heads i've seen are too fat and circular. this one is perfect. can't wait to see it painted. have you started on the body yet?

    wow this guy is going to be MASSIVE based off the scale of the head! Perhaps this is a counter to Encline Designs Oversized Optimus he is working on????

    lol, i dont think im at that level yet.. but i think this shockwave is going to be bigger than any LC figures which hasbro has released... my estimate would be he would be about 12-15 inches tall

    The heads a good start, but its not symetrical need to refine some of the details a tad

    found a huge tf1 0ptimus ko which fits the head, it was the biggest one i found, since the ultimate bb was no longer available.. This is gonna take a lot of scratchbuilding though, but at least i have a frame for his body now
