    Well, at 3:45 am a couple of days ago, I realized something. That Shockblast ain't cuttin' it. The gray chest, giant green non-articulated arm....the other claw hand....something had to be done. At 3:47 am I realized....waitaminnit....Energon Quickstrike's arms look they like would perfectly fit....and they have the swing-around hand into a gun.....and voila! A little purple paint, silver thighs and feet, a hose, and a gun barrel extension...and I give you: (clickable)

    And....my fan Laser Pistol Mode:

    In some of the pics, the painted purple looks a little pinkish, but it really doesn't look like that in rl. Please, feedback from here has ALWAYS guided me in the right direction, so let 'er rip!

    Makes me wish I had an extra Shockblast to do that to. Still not as cool as Alternator Shockwave IMO, but you did a great job and made Energon Shockblast even cooler.

    love the coloration. The gun arm is a little long for my taste but good none the less.

    What did you use for the new arms?

    Wow...you did a REALLY good job! I still like the shield on the right forearm, but that left arm is done really, really well, much better than the default E-Shockblast.

    Very nice. :thumb

    Wow. Beautiful.

    I have one gripe as to why it's not perfect. In Rover mode (see pic 3), the hand is clearly visible, and obviously holding that dish. This is, however, a minor gripe. Definately the one thing keeping this kitbash from 100% awesome. I give it a 97% awesome.

    Sometimes you have to sacrifice one or two awesome points to make it work, though, right? I'm super-impressed.

    Not like the same thing hasn't been done before, though. TM Rattrap's tail, for instance.

    Damn that's cool. If only the real Shock/Laserwave toy had a fist instead of that weird claw thing...
    Also a smaller gun would have been nice.
