    Hey there everyone, this is my take on a classics shockwave and also my first post so i hope you guys enjoy. I'm kind of stuck on which type of gun hand my shockwave should have on his left arm so please leave a comment on which you believe is better. And for the paint job i'm thinking for ghost gray, purple, and a light purple for the chest. As for transformation he will transform either into a tank or maybe get it into the gun mode just need the barrel of the g1 toy.... Comments and Critiques are welcome. Enjoy!!!!!!!
    Parts:energon sixshot
    universe dropshot
    rotf mixmaster g1 deco gun
    movie 1 starscream gun hand
    and a gundam hand and gun tip(wing gundam ew)

    Update #1
    I decided to make both the g1 and mixmaster cannon so they will be interchangable. I added some blue copper wire to the cannon and a extra piece from a gundam to make it a little more menacing. Let me know what you think, or what i should add or take out.

    Update #2
    I started painting the shoulder piece, let me know if you think its a pretty good purple for shockwave. Sorry for the bad quality of pics.

    First up we have shockwave with rotf mixmaster g1 deco gun
    right now it's being held by a clear string. It kinda reminded me of the war for cybertron look for shockwave, just need to mod it more and wrap it with those tubes.

    Another problem which you may have seen is the right shoulder armor is left open because the bicep piece is to big, anyone have an idea that can help? Thanks hope to hear back.

    i voted g1. always looks the neatest.

    and with the shoulder not fitting, you're gonna have to shave off the sides of the arm to fit in. just make sure to do it evenly.

    I voted for Mixmaster's cannon. Personally I prefer the more WFC like cannon as I feel it fits the rest of the mold better. Though if you happen to beef up the G1 styled cannon a bit more, I wouldn't mind seeing that either. That said, looking forward to seeing this guy done.:thumbs2:

    Thanks for your opinion, I'm going to mod the mixmaster cannon and try to make it more wfc just need to see if i can make those tube like things and get paint that lights up in the dark or maybe a led. Should i use a different piece for the g1 cannon?

    To help with the shoulder piece, you're gonna have to cut the joint down on both sides to get it to close. It's not too tricky, just make small cuts and recheck it. Carful not to cut too much.

    Edit: What Javaco said :D
