    Here is My custom Longarm/Shockwave inspired by this years Botcon custom class. Longarm/Shockwave is made from a RTS Jazz with a new head and blaster for a hand. Both his head and gun features LEDs. It was a VERY trough task for having the dual LEDs in this figure and still transformable. He is painted in metallic purple and different shades of purple for his robot mode. Shockwave has trademark gun for a hand and a cable from his arm to his back.

    That is beautiful! Aside from the excellent repaint work, adding the LED's and keeping the transformation makes this a wonderful piece!

    this is a thing of beauty!!
    that must have been a total pain to get the leds done with transformation staying intact.
    the new hand and head fit right in!!
    good show!!:thumbs2:

    Purty!
    I love how he looks slender from that perspective.

    I really like it. I don't know about referring to him as Longarm though, since in Animated he had a different appearance from Shockwave.

    Beautiful. Just bloody beautiful. A prized centerpiece to any collection.
    Bravo!
    Out of curiosity; how did you manage the led in his cannon? Are the batteries in the forearm, or is there wiring going into the torso?

    Awesome work X, looks 100x better than the Botcon hunk of plastic. Mind if I ask where you found the head?

    To me this is wroth the $1,000 price tag that the Botcon Longarm/Shockwave sells for.
    Plus yours has a better paint job and the cool LED's;)

    Many thank you guys :) 

    To answer your questions
    The LED in the cannon was pretty easy, and the cable does actually have the wires inside of it.

    The head was from an alternator Shockwave head but made it smaller to fit.
