    I got this kit from Revlimiter a long time ago and assembled and painted him up probably 6 months ago. I got all the joints from a Revoltech Megatron, the rest were resin cast replacements from the wondercon kit.

    I used model master paints for this one. They are definitely tricky to work with the first time. The last image is a custom shockwave I made previously, I just wanted to photoshop the glowy eye ;)

    I bought mine from Revlimiter. If you can't get in contact with him let me know and I'll send you his email. It was only $50, came complete with instructions. All you need is a Revoltech Megatron, paint, and some spare time :)

    This is awesome dude!! I love all Revoltech Tfs, only thing is, I hate is their necks!! They look so strange. That isn't a knock against your work, just something I've come to notice of all Revoltechs.

    Yeah, I'd love to have a Revoltech Shockwave. I really wished more than just the four came out.

    The eye is really bothering me, so I have to ask: did you install an LED, or is that Photoshopped?

    Always got love for Revoltechs. Very good job on this one! Wished they gave him a bulkier chest and something to cover up the holes on his shoulders.

    Thanks! I keep forgetting to dust my stuff off before pics. D'oh!

    Me too. I have an extra Prime that I'm turning into Nemesis and a SS who will become another seeker...probably sunstorm.

    I wanted to mimic the look of the comic book in the background. I did leave one of the photos untouched. I painted the eye with a gold enamel.

    I have to stop being so lazy and really sand down flash and fill holes in. I was so eager to paint him when he arrived I skipped over a few essential steps.

    ia! ia! cthulhu f'tagn!

    Thanks, I wish I could afford the Soundwave one too. These little guys are spendy.
