    *Attention Admin*
    Please delet this post if I am not the first one to post this MOD. I searched the forum but could not find other posts alike.

    NOW, Ladies and Gentlemen!!!!

    I give you, Zebu's '2 seconds Cannon MOD' for DOTM Shockwave!!

    I will be working on DOTM Shockwave repaint/custom work in next couple of months (waiting on my surfacers, putties, and airbrush supplies). During my pre-custom brain storming sessions, I dediced to see if there was any way to put Shockwave's cannon at the center of figure without heavy modification...... It turns out, there was!!

    Pictures are self-descriptive. No tools, nor skills required! All you need to do is hook the bottom grooves of cannon (shown as 2) to Shockwave's thumbs (shown as 1) in a way so it locks (shown in 3).

    This is a quick fix. However, it will hold the entire figure by the connon as shown in last two photos.

    It even gives the arbitrary atriculations to cannon (about 45 degrees).

    Please try it on your own figure. All I ask is that you give me the credit of coming up with it!

    Enjoy... More to come on the shockwave repaint/custom.

    *tries it out*
    :jawdropper: 

    So easy to do but makes a huge difference. The only downside is the cannon can't extend this way.

    I agree with the others. He looks loads better and less... lopsided.
