    Been wanting to put Shockwave on the boards/ebay but procastinated as I was waiting for a lil something from someone to complement this custom. Nevertheless, here he is.

    Took corvus's and frenzy rumble's idea and added in my own little add-ons for the weapons. Many thanks to Solrac for sharing his early WIPs of Shockwave with me and HCXPunk for his indepth advice on this. Do enjoy the pics.

    Does the term Overkill not mean anything to you? :lol 

    I like the addition of Cybertron Prime's cannon, works very well i think. Was the handheld blaster (that plugs into the aforementioned cannon) left out deliberately, or can Shocky just not hold it?

    Otherwise, very cool. Am waiting to see the extra something.

    LOLZ! That was exactly the theme that I had in mind when designing it. The blaster? Flat shaped one? That can easily be plugged in on the forearms but I left it out. Still unpainted I think.

    This one can plug into Shocky's forearms? How? I know it plugs into Cybertron Primes larger cannon, but i didn't know Shocky had a matching socket as well.

    Well done! I love how you incorporated the original arm as an alternate weapon. I pretty much dismantled mine and used a few of the parts of it, but you took it to another level.

    I love how you kept Shockwave's pallet very simple and then added additional palettes in the various weapons. You have a very good sense of color and composition especially considering the arrangement of all the accessories in his alt mode.

    I also admire the consistency of the paint and the particular style you used to apply it. I prefer the drybrushed look for metal, but the airbrushing you did adds a sense of depth that perfectly enhances the overall appearance of the piece. I may have only added one Decepticon symbol on the shoulder, but that's just nit picking. Beautiful photography as always.

    No crits!

    You never cease to impress. I love the idea of having his hand flip out to a blaster.
