    ... I blame leobreaker1977 for putting this idea into my head, ahahahaha~ here ya go buddy! and have fun with Shockwave too when ya get 'im eh? XD
    this is based off the almost legendary Radioshack version of Shockwave, which was grey instead of purple [Animated tributed that, hmmm]... with some artistic license, since I really didn't wanna rip him apart and paint all his internals... which would rub off like hell if I moved him.
    ... well, that and leaving some pink and purple makes him look a little better, and saves me the pain of casting clear plastic. =___=
    done mainly with a grey Gundam marker and a pink and a silver paint pen, with some black for highlights and a gloss top coat over.

    heh, can't take credit for the idea [Leobreaker's], but I AM rather pleased with how he turned out.
    ... and it's almost scary how much this Shockwave mold homages the original G1 version... even down to the skinny legs...

    Looks great. The gray makes the pink parts pop. Nice work.

    this is awesome....this is a repaint I'd buy in a heartbeat.

    be pretty cool if Radio Shack and Hasbro would follow your lead here and team up to make this for real.

    (wishful thinking I know)

    Only natural. your idea man. ;) 
    Glad you suggested it though. looks pretty damn nice. XD


    Heh, thanx bro. XD


    Thanx man. :) 

    ... I was watching reviews of G1 Shockwave again, and I nearly died when they demo-ed it? was tempted to custom something just to parody it, but... decided against it. kekekekekeke~


    I'd love for them to do it too... it looks pretty nice in these colors! but yeah... we can hope... lolz
