    This is one of those projects that I've been wanting to do ever since I found out there was a customizing scene. Ive had the figure and parts for quite a while but finally found the the right paint to use, and I found it with Testors 1 coat lacquer Purple Licious.

    The arms came from Classics Megatron and his cannon came from a Classics Dropshot.

    I've always prefered the split leg cannon vs the paris gun mode, he still has satellite mode, but I need to get one of those clear stands.

    From a previous custom I've done, Shockblast finally gets to stand next to his brother.

    And a little more ~wave loving, thanks to Solarc333s idea.

    Many thanks to all of those who have done this bash before me (many more than I could name w/o leaving some one out). Nothing ground breaking here, but any comments and crits are appriciated!

    Sure fixed up that molds proportions and layed down a nice clean spray.

    ....and Soundwave is also an incredible piece.

    AWESOME!!!! All of these look great! Now I have to find a Universe Blaster and chop him up. Shockwave kicks ass! Soundwave looks great. "You got to do something about his feet though". "His Feet don't look right." "I like everything but the feet." Get used to hearing about the feet.

    Thanks guys, I never bought E. Shockwave when he was out because I couldnt stand him. Though now that I love tearing them apart, I love the mold, its tons of fun to mess with.

    And thanks again to Sorarc333 for putting that Soundwave out there, hes great! and I dont mind Claw toes at all ^^


    Yeah, Shockwave (well most any ~wave) will always hold a place in my heart. And finding the perfect colors a crucial. Took me forever to find the right one. Just as a note, 1 can of the testors I used (its really small) just barely covers the parts I painted, it got really low at the end and sputtered on a few parts (please dont look for them :p ) And while it may be "acurate" I like the silver better too.

    Love it! :drool: Wish he had a hose going from the gun arm to his back(pack), but other than that, absolutely flawless! I dig the silver gun too, makes him stand out in a sea of Shocky customs! great job! Can't wait to try this on mine! :thumb
