    this is a little project i did when i got inspired when i seen jin earth mode soundwave:drool: . i was thinking what about an earth mode shockwave. the head comes from action master shock wave body is skull grind/staxus. around christmas time stock up on a few figures. at toysrus they where 2 deluxe for 14.99 and kmart by two get one free. i got like 3 jazzs 2 tracks and other figures. anyways back to the topic earth mode shockwave has 2 hands at least mine will. wanted to do a little something different so i didnt go full purple and kept the other hand. hope you guys like.

    love the glossy purple and the head fits very well

    does it effect the transformation?

    and will you add a BFG or Cannonarm?

    Wow, this is really cool! The mold really works surprisingly well for Shocky! I think if you push your coats of paint just a bit more, as well as incorporate the purple on the head and the torso just a bit more, this will be absolutely awesome.

    That's actually rather clever. I'd like to see the traditional gun-hand implemented somehow, but conceptually, this is nice.

    (I'd be ok with partsforming if it meant that the gun-hand was the barrel of the artillery piece.)

    I had this idea, but you beat me to it! Damn my procrastinating ways- damn them to the Pit!
    Anyway, great custom! Will you be adding a BFG?

    Give it about 4 more coats of whatever purple you're using to make the finish nice and even. Right now it looks like a "sharpie" job. Besides that, cool idea. I think an alternator shockblast head would look better as it would help even out the proportions and detail level between the two figures.

    I think this looks good. I was thinking that this mold would actually look good if someone could do a remake of a modernized vehicon named tankor

    I really love this custom. However it doesnt scream shockwave to me and I cant figure out why.... Sorry but again I really really love it though.

    I agree, but excellent concept. I'd also like to see his good ol' left gun hand.
