    So this guy started of as FOC Shockwave and then I used that really neat Cyclonus legs swap done by Soundwave 3K and Kenneth CY Cheng (awesome idea guys) I took it a bit further and shaved the leg fins off and resculpt them with aves apoxy-scuplt(Thanks for the tip sons of nemisis and fiskone, this stuff is awesome) I removed the lower arms and added a set from a 1/144 scale gundam set, and then used a 2pk megatron cannon for him, the wire is from a dollar store set of RCA cables. I had to make hian action master becuase of the VERY limited space in the chest cavity where the batteries are stored for the LED that I installed. He was painted using Testor Metallic purple lacquer and detailed using Model Master Jet exhaust, citadel yellow, and a custom mixed purple which I used as a wash on the chest piece, panel lined with copic pen and finished with reprolabels and a few couts of clear-coat. I thank you for taking the time to look and comments and questions are welcomed.

    This is a beautiful custom Jason.
    The shade of purple is just perfect as commented by the dude above.
    I think the chest sticker is unnecessary IMO, but I guess it can be easily removed and considering that since there is no way to give him a good altmode with these cyclonus legs he makes a lot of sense as an actionmaster.
    Good work bro!

    Your photos are really grainy and it's hard to see all the hard work you put into this piece. Are you using a smart phone, or a point and shoot? The background is cool, but very distracting. A flat black one would look good, and really help showcase your details.

    @Fiskone thanks bro, I am slowly learning trying to make the area needed for batteries and such

    @Joey_Santana thanks man, as far as the stickers go I went with three like the g1...plus the chest one kinda defuses the orange LED. I couldn't make him transformable because the led and batteries in the chest

    @Nyarlahotep I think the low view count is because of the bad cover pic I am using a camera. But I think my lighting is off and it is also 2 or 3 yrs old.
