    Just a quick heads up this guy is going to be ending on ebay very very soon, in an hour or so, if anybody wants to check him out

    Hi guys, here is my leader class dark of the moon shockwave. He was built to fall into the DMK range as well as normal leader class figures. Just like other DMK figures he is non transformable as i wanted to pack lots of detail and accuracy into this guy. As i mentioned he is entirely scratch built by me so he was not built around a base figure its all original, also i know that there are a couple of guys offering cast heads and ribcages for sale but i didnt use
    any cast parts from other customizers at all,my head and ribcage were scratchbuilt by me :)  .

    He includes lots of hidden mechanical details as well as little features like cybertronion tattoos that are etched into his sword and gun. theres a huge amount of hand sculpted work on this to ensure maximum acuracy. he is a bit taller than my leader class megatron to keep him in scale with the movies as he was taller than megatron and prime not to mention alot more muscled, he was freakin huge in the film. he has loads of articulation too,
    he has



    -ball joint waist

    -light up LED eye

    -ball joint neck

    -posable pods on upper back

    -ratcheting shoulders, in out and 360 degrees

    -individually posable shoulder armor

    -ratcheting elbows

    -bicep swivel

    -ball joint wrist

    -individually posable fingers

    - posable waist spikes

    -posable rear waist armor

    -ratcheting hip movement up down in out

    -knee bends and swivels for greater posability

    -knee armor is posable

    -lower rear calf armor is posable

    -ball joint ankle

    -foot spikes are individually posable as are the extra "toes"



    i am really happy with how his feet came out, doing all those weird alien foot parts was a pain but i like how they came together in the end. the battery for his LED is well hidden but easily removable for replacement. this guy had
    even more scratch building than my leader megatron so i hope you like him. he is for sale too so if anyone wants him just email me. ok well let me know what you think ok. bye bye

    quick note: several people have asked for comparrison shots between my shockwave and a leader class figure so i have uploaded two shots, one of shockwave next to leader prime and another next to his voyager sized version, hope you like them.

    this is no doubt the most accurate shockwave ever created and i doubt even hasbro could fathom making something like this even as a bust.

    I just don't like non-transforming customs, but DAMN that's one impressive piece there. Probably the best LC Shockwave that has graced these pages.

    Can you do a comparison shot next to another LC figure?

    this is a awesome custom man! the paint work is amazing as well and complements the build perfectly, I like the lower lege panels as you matched the movie look perfect with the overlapping curved panels! and the little nuggets of detail here and there are perfect! nice pipe as well!

    I'll say it again! this looks almost official! along with your DMK megatron, I have to say that you have the best scratchbuilding skills out of anybody in radicons!
