    Highly articulated leader class sized DOTM Shockwave for commission.
    Removable arm cannon and cord so he can have 2 hands.
    Double elbow cannon arm for more cannon arm poses.
    Mech-tech feature still intact although arm cannon is bulked up and lengthened.
    2 holes for more left arm blade positions.

    Made from:
    07 movie Leader Megatron base
    Voyager DOTM Shockwave cannon, arm, and blade
    Modified Fakebuster83 Leader Dread hand
    M.A.R.S. robot chest with sculpted parts for back
    Jetfire boosters and random unknown part with Voyager DOTM parts and sculpt for back energy cells
    Bruticus Maximus Brawl turret swivel waist
    Arteloko head and chest
    ROTF Fallen forearm
    ROTF Ironhide legs for upper arms
    lots of styrene, sculpt, and multi-layered paints

    Looks good, and close to the CG-I model.

    Though his horns are a bit off. Maybe splay them further apart.

    Love it. Always was a fan of Shockwave and you've captured it perfectly. Love the use of TFTM Meg's as a base.

    Looks great. I can see the Megatron parts but it works for Shockwave.

    This....is.....AMARZING I mean the use of fakebuskers crankcase hands for his is genius I never realized how close in resemblance they are to shockwaves :)  and the over all purportions are great something I feel a lot of the dotm leader shockwave customs lack in and the use of parts is awesome.....I could go on but I think a single word could sum this up......,EPIC!! :D

    Not doable since the head was cast by Arte-loko. It's certainly way better than what I could sculpt or put together from spare parts.

    Thanks. I think most of these that have been done used 07 Megs as the base figure. I did try to do things I haven't seen done before though, like giving him the energy cells on his back, keeping the mech-tech function, 2 holes for blade positions, and making the gun and cord removable so he can have 2 arms with hands. Plus waist articulation too, but I'm pretty sure I've seen that done before.

    Thanks guys!

    Thank you so much! I rely on Fakebusters stuff often. He makes the best articulated hands available and in a great variety. I had to cut off the pinky finger joint and sand the side of the hand so he had the 3 fingers, but I think it came out like I hoped it would.
    I did also put lots of planning into how his styrene and sculpted features would look, and how the proportions would come out. I didn't want him to be too styrene or sculpt heavy. Was going for somewhere in between.
