    So shockwave had this sweet move in the Game where he lift his blade up and slam-ed it on the floor which made me wish that his blade was a bit more "outie".

    But the Mech-Tech hole is a bit up his forearm :/
    Then I noticed this square right after the mech tech hole. Made me think....
    (please excuse my low quality black berry pictures)

    This is not a WOW mod, but I liked it :) 

    First unscrew the left arm, split in in half. (we dont need pictures for that right?)
    second, cut/shave/remove the peg that is inside the square slot (you can not tell in the picture, again BAD quality)

    Third, Put the arm back together, once done use something to make the square a bit wider so that the blades peg fits (I used a screw driver)

    Fourth, well peg the blade in and Shockwave has a blade he can now at least stab others with :) 

    Regular:

    Tell me what you think :D 

    NOW IF I could only add some height to Shockwave :/

    (stay tunned.... Optimus prime axe mod is next :) )

    I did this to mine a couple of weeks ago but so I could place his gun properly on that arm. Also if you have a small enough pair of cutters you don't even need to disassemble the arm to do it.

    It's a good mod that adds versatility as long as you don't care about loosing the clip point.
