    Yes, I'm obviously on a Decepticon kick, huh? Especially ol Shocky. A while ago a fellow Radicon asked me if I was gonna do a Leader Sized Shockwave, after my second Voyager went on eBay. That really got my mind going, and after Bruticus and doing Omar's head bashes (Yes they will be up soon, don't fly to Mesa and kill me :lol ) I needed something crazy to do...so WHAM!!!

    I managed to swap the left and right arm positions, and replaced the old "gimp" hand with the forearm and hand of a junker TFTM Deep Desert Brawl figure. It really adds a lot to the guy, I think. I also modded the Murder claw with a combo Neo-Shifter/Ball Joint, as well as some chest kibble to look less like ol Megs.

    The head was built using some styrene, some of the spare parts from Meg's old head, and I swapped the red LED's for yellow ones, so that ol Murderous eye lights up!

    I also added a "insect" looking claw from a Zoid figure, and there you have it. Comments welcome!

    OH NO YOU DIDN'T!!!!
    That purple looks really smooth.
    I really like the addition to the murder arm.
    My only crit, I would have liked to see the gimpy arm beefed up a bit more.

    this is probably my favorite work of yours thus far. I had been waiting for a Shockwave out of this mold(and the 1st movie megs) for awhile and this doesn't disappoint.

    I like the insect part on the cannon, it gives him Animated Shockwave's antler look.

    the tank mode looks like an insecticon, lets see you pull off those guys with this much flare.

    I don't think I'd ever thought this mold would have worked as Shockwave, but you really took the mold and made an awesome Shockwave from it! This looks really fantastic :thumb 

    It's neat seeing you make some more Decepticons, too, I must say :)
