    FOC SHOCKWAVE for upcoming video game. I wanted to give him a G1 feel that was missing so I attached a LED light on his cannon blaster and given his black wire that is attached to his battery back then I painted him in G1 like color scheme.

    I think the colors look quite striking, but I'm not keen on how the alt mode suffers because of the hose.

    Very nice! The colors really pop. Great paint job, really. The only downside to the figure is its size...

    Makes me wonder if it's possible to mix/match parts with the Energon Shockblast to make a much larger and more imposing FoC Shockwave...

    The hose makes sense both thanks to his G1 self and if you look at his concept art, he has not one, but three hoses on his cannon. Apparently in alt mode they just disappear or are better hidden though.

    Dude, that hose should go. It completely offs the jet mode and adds nothing to the robot mode.

    The deco is outstanding.

    hmmmm... love the paint job, but yeah, the hose is a bit jarring.
    thought about changing it to something that looks more segmented?... like multiple metal ring segments... forming... a h... wow, my vocabulary just went southwards in a horrible way...
    and mebbe instead of running the hose above his chest assembly in alt mode, mebbe you could tuck it away under one of the wings?
    otherwise, stellar job! XD might do something similar to my FoC shockers too...

    its amazing how you always are the first at painting the new releases. I wonder how this figure will fare in the future customizations. i like that this looks so Takara-ish. clean job.

    looks great, I just got mine yesterday in the mail, I am thinking about repainting him. The LED mod you did, what size LED did you use?
    Thanks
