    With Shockwave being one of the main baddies in the upcoming film, I know we are going to be seeing all new versions of him very soon. I wanted to pay homage to the original, before his new incarnation hits the big screen. I built this guy up from a G1 junker that I got in a sweet trade with Altitron (thanks man!) He now has a full range of articulation and a light up LED eye that has a continuous switch, and LED cannon that has a pressure switch. All batteries are in their own compartments, and are completely replaceable. I Had to scratchbuild a gun barrel, since he came without one, and the new arms required a different barrel anyway. This gave me the opportunity to make it a little more useful in his bot mode, so I put a built in, flip out, science station in it. This allows him to analyze his newest experiments (a dissected view of Blitzwing is shown on the screen!) While the proportions ended up being a little different than the original, I think the overall gains were well worth it! He will be going up for auction tomorrow. Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think, and enjoy!

    This is exceptionally nice! The robot mode looks fantastic, nearly perfect. The science station is icing on the cake. The nozzle in alt mode looks a little too big, though.

    It's always nice to see your work, bud :thumb
