    "Optimus!"

    The only translatable word he says in the movie, yet a powerful one with his menacing look. Shockwave is huge in size, plus his puppet Driller makes him even strong. He deserves to be the next Leader of decepticons after megatron's defeat on the ROTF episode.

    I've been working around with this guy a while, mostly on the sculpt plus LED since it's my very first time!

    Custom Details:
    - Custom Sculpted head from scratch, with LED in it.
    - Head is designed to be "openable", using magnetic attachment, in case LED went down when time passes by.
    - Accessible/fixable battery pack. (If you want to make it DC instead of AC, you can do it!, since I leave it fixable.)
    - Scratch-built whole body using Leader Megatron TFTM as base.
    - Detail parts are built up using several Transformers figures, epoxy sculpt, plus random parts.
    - Balljoint Articulations added several point, biceps, wrist, head, waist.
    - Design based on Movie screen and My own conceptual idea (i.e. Backpack), so it's not really an accurate version, but gives a sense of Decepticon/Shockwave in the movie.
    - Wear and tear texture
    - Custom painted realistic weathering effects.
    - Custom painted with metallic paint and airbrush the special shades on him, so now he will look silver in darker light but he will be a little purple-ish when he faces the brighter light
    - Coated with Fluorescent-Clear to create the iridescent effects.
    - Painted with high quality acrylic lacquer paint.
    - Highly detailed with acrylic and enamel.
    - Painted with TB-Production's signature shade.
    - This Figure is meant to be a model/collectible for display, rather than a normal toy, and it's non-transformable.

    ***Updated pics, I attached the pic of "Iridescent" effect when he face light and turn to a little purple


    ****Updated pics, I repositioned the feet to be the original design of it, which make them look more proportional and not too big.****

    Thx guys! I'm not saying it's accurate, as my intention is just to portrait the Movie feeling on the size of leader class figure! :D

    Well you definetly did that, he could pass for a pre final design concept piece. Great job with the sculpting, and paint, he looks great.

    I agree. The effort is awesome, but the proportions don't work for me. His feet look way to big and his chest does not scream Shockwave to me. Never the less, the work put forth is great.

    The paint is perfect! But the body, not so accurate.

    I can't wait to see if you paint up Soundwave's Human Alliance figure!! I hope the Blu-Ray screen caps will be out by then, that way you can have a perfect match for the coloring!! :drool:

    Thanks guys!


    Yeah, decepticon type got tons of details to work on to make it real accurate (at least you need some serious sculpt works.

    Thanks, it's my first time, not so good!! Will make some improvement next time on other sculpture.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Z, I'm surprised too when taking the photo of him and his feet look kinda very big (especially ant-eye view LOL) I may make some adjustment on that.

    Yeah FR, I see this point, but IMHO the skeleton of decepticons look prety much alike ( i mean those complicated stuff on the body) except the signature chest design that make this guy different :)  Anyway thanks!

    Thanks Moy, I'm not saying it's accurate here, but yeah thanks again for your good eyes that see the shade I gave (actually he's more purple-ish if you expose him to a brighter light.) And I can't wait to paint Soundwave too.

    Thanks Bro!!!

    dude, i love your interpretation of shockwave. Speaking bout accuracies, heck..even hasbro has epic fail inaccuracies. Leader class ironhide ?(WTH is with those arm kibble), Leader class prime's back? heck..that too isn't show accurate. Im better off with Dual Model Kit prime if you ask me for accuracies.

    botttom line is: Your Style rocks! i love the paint. top notch! I love your interpretation. As customizers, WE have our interpretation of a certain figure which we FEEL might work and what could be.

    Thanks for sharing this one OH mighty Toby! keep up the good work.


    p.s.: what i like about it is, its not just a repaint, but a scratch build. KUDOS!
