    This is a commission project for a long-term customer of mine. We both like the character of Shockwave, and he owns 3 of my past Shockwave customs.

    The chest of Bludgeon was removed and replaced with the waist/torso of Cybertron deluxe Unicron. The sides were filed and sculpted. The Tank turret attaches magnetically to both the left arm and the tank turret.

    The cord is just for show, but looks cool to me. I know this guy will be headed to a good home. More pics HERE.

    An idea for the cord: maybe you could make it retract into or store inside the turret? If you're not using the swords, you can gut the turret and either turn it into a hinged compartment or add some kind of retractor or reel.

    So much Shockwave love these days!

    I really like the arm cannon.
    How does the Shockblast head fit with the Bludgeon torso during transformation?

    It's just my opinion....but this Shockwave looks way better to me than that new DOTM Shockwave...even though that one does look good.

    The black/purple tankmode is so much nicer than a cybertronian 'tank' imo. In terms of robot mode, this one looks better too, rather than a
    Shockwave on extreme robo steroids....

    That would be slick!

    My only critique with Shockwave here is that the color range is not as extensive as I think it ought to be. There is a lot of detail in the base mold that hasn't been properly taken advantage of. Otherwise, as I've already said on other sites, I love this take on Shockwave. The build is absolutely wonderful.

    If only he was Ebay bound... :(

    Hmmm...I never thought of that. I was worried if it would look weird in Tank mode. But after playing with it for a while it looked okay. That's a killer idea though.

    Fits fine. It required some prep work on the inside front. The head rotates upward and the head slides down into the torso.

    I debated on adding some bronze or brass details, like to the wheels. But I've always liked a s "simpler" color scheme. BUt I think a lil more color would not have killed it. Thanks, bro.

    :lol  That's me! Pushing the weirdness level!!!
