    Hi fellow TF lovers, i'm new here and i decided to design my own unique TF, this is my first Custom, see what you think:

    [​IMG]

    I made the head from "green stuff", not the best stuff to use but it's what i could find in britian.

    the cannon is made from bumblebees two cannons and super glue.

    you can place the cannon in both of his shoulders, both forarms, hands, and the back of his shoulders that act as a holster.

    you can change his legs from a "modded BB feet" to his very own hind legs.

    I'll post his "car form" and a little suprize....

    C&C are welcome!

    UPDATE: i've added his alt mode and the "turret" form, it's an idea from the game, to make him into a trippleformer!

    Not bad going, especially for a first crack. Shockwave's certainly not an obvious choice for the mould, but I can see where you got the idea from (I'm thinking the chest design?), and you've brought him out well. The only thing really that would make it truly Shockwave is the wrist cannon. Not sure how you'd rig that, though, especially as I don't have the mould.

    The head's very cool. Have you done much sculpting before? It's a little rough, but definitely shows promise. As an alternative, I wonder if it might have been possible to swap the head for one of the Deluxe 'drone' type heads. But given that the existing head is probably held on with one of those fiendish pins that are so notoriously difficult to shift, it's probably not one for a first time out.

    The only real suggestions I could suggest to improve it offhand would be to add a bit more purple to the robot mode (forearms, lower legs, perhaps), and revert the legs to the normal humanoid form. The ornithopod-style is an interesting mod, but that style of leg is much better suited to airborne characters (since they serve well as shock absorbers), and it kinda takes away from the homage.

    Top job - looking forward to more! :D

    Thank you! there were problems with me trying to make a hand cannon, it wouldnt fit with the excess in the "alt form". so the forearm cannon was next in line!

    i only customize with things i have double of, and i don't have any spare swindles :( , i also though the drone heads wouldnt cut it for someone as powerful as shockwave, he was the true second in command in the cartoon, and a drone head would be insulting to such a high class warrior.

    i'll be posting the alt pics and the "suprize" later on tonight so feel free to check on them also, it's nice to hear from a fellow Brit like yourself! (i'm a londoner)

    get a "cross-aired screw driver, and take the yellow giant piece from the front of the foot off, trim whats neccessary from the black foot part of bumblee and trim some little bits from the yellow piece, once done just screw it back on!

    I like the originality behind it. It's a good first crack. WelCome abord, Radicon!

    I think I would haave used Camshaft's head, though.
