    First off, thanks to the following:

    - Zildjian, for sending me the articulated right hand
    - JazzEd, for donating some spare Revoltech joints
    - Frenzy_Rumble, for supplying the water-slide faction labels and for making that kick-ass custom MP Grimlock pictured below

    I gave the entire figure a fresh paint job with Ultra-Violet Pearl (Model Master), then used Gunship Gray for the gray parts on the sides of his legs, as well as the gun barrel. Liquid Leaf Silver Argent was used on the legs and I made his eye a bright yellow instead of the gold on the original figure.

    This was a pain in the butt to make (even more so than the MP Fortress Maximus that I'm still working on, and once I get the electronics back, that sucker will be finished as well), but I am very pleased with the results.

    As always, comments and critiques are welcome. Enjoy!!

    Wow, really nice. And all it took was an expensive Shockwave and an expensive Starscream. It's wicked and I'd like to make one myself but... ouch.

    No, wait, you aren't using two Shockwaves for the legs, are you?

    Dude, thats frikkin wicked ass cool!! I want one!! The only thing I could see a bit "problematic" would be that the legs making the handle would be a little to wide in his alt mode, but other than that, this is a stroke of genius!!!

    Thanks, guys!


    Yep, two Shockwaves were used for the making of this.



    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

    Thanks, all.

    Yeah, I thought about taking bits from another Shocky's back and adding on to the back of this one, to bulk it up. I may still do that, but I like it as it is. It doesn't really stick out that much, the only thing is that the legs don't fully retract like the original. But, they retract enough for my liking. :D 

    Sorry, but it cost me more than that just in base materials.

    Thanks. Eventually I want to get a backdrop that looks exactly like that background, it's one of my favorite covers of all time.

    that looks pretty sharp man. Appears he's only missing a waist joint. Could we get a picture of the gun mode standing up, slightly from the front? I'm curious as to how the extra-thick legs impact the alt mode.
