    I won a custom Shockwave. The seller was the second owner and didn't know how to transform it or attach the G1 barrel. I want to track down the pics of this custom's gun mode to figure this out.

    Does anyone recognize this? Is it's creator on the boards? I remember seeing it awhile back either here, ebay, or both. I couldn't find it with forum search.

    The modified barrel with the brass-like bits and the two color light (flashlight + laser pointer) was something that I remembered seeing before.

    Off the top of my head, looking at it, I imagine the solver attachment going onto his gun hand, and from there, just transforming it into the common tank mode.

    The figure had the treads on the back removed. It's a gun mode of some kind, but there's no clear attachment place and no good fits for the barrel.

    I figured it out. There's no real connector for the barrel. It stays on via friction with the antennae. The Antennae pinch/expand in the middle to hold it. It holds steady, but I'm going to use magnets or something for a more secure attachment.

    It makes a decent cannon placement.
