    The Fallen's defeat by the hands of Optimus Prime, the massive casualties in their desert battle....Megatron injured and in desperate need of repairs.
    It was under these circumstances that Megatron summons his chief technical officer, Shockwave.


    [​IMG]

    With Starscream stalking him in his injured state, Megatron could use Shockwave, as he was fiercely loyal to him and the Decepticon cause.

    Taking the shape as the defeated Grindor's alt mode (piece of tin...), he gives additional aerial firepower to the rest of the Decepticon forces. And with his twisted mind building on Cybetronian technology, they all will be much more deadly to those accursed Autobots.

    I atsrated kicking around this idea last year, even did a dig-bash of it, but never got around to making it, until I used some parts from a junker TFTM Swindle and realized i had an extra head! :thumb  It takes a little sanding so that he can still transfrom with good clearance, but not much. The head is amounted on the ball joint from the same Swindle, and the hand cannon is a lil gun that came with the neo-shifters Im using for my Devy.

    That lil Chain gun attachment is unfinished....wait to you see what will finish it! It attaches magnetically under his fin. I really love how he turned out. I shed a tear for his sale :cry :

    wonderful Wonderful wonderful Wonderful! Doesn't Shockwave have a chopper alt mode in the first game? Nice connection...

    I love the colours, especially. Not overly done but screams menace. Well-done!

    If i must say a little criticism, it's probably that the handcannon is not 'chaingunnish' enough, especially when you had paired it with a ammo belt. The gun from Breakaway might work better, but hey, this is just a nit pick.

    I'm a fan :p

    YEAH Earl!! Very nice man! Everytime I see your sig change, I'm anticipating the next piece of work like crazy! So it's here! I really like how it still transforms into a helicopter without looking too much like Blackout/Grindor in robot mode. Chaingun = win. One eye + cannon blaster, always Shockwave to me. Great job man, hope it does well in its sale!!!

    Very nice, reminds me a bit of WWI shockwave, the only thing that throws him off in my opinion is the size of the swindle head, it just looks a tad bit too big, probably just me.

    Ok. THAT is awesome! I have a broken Swindle and an extra Blackout. I think I will try that. Does it still transform with that head?

    Good HOLY HELL. Now this works nicely as a fear striking Shockwave for the movieverse. It reminds me of his brief battle appearance in the TFTM game where he was a triple changer.

    Can't wait to see the fully on weapons mode.

    Nice indeed ... I can see the head is customised but is the rest just a re-paint or are there other custom pieces in there as well ?? :thumbs2:

    I'm not a fan of the Blackout mold, but it works really well as Shockwave, my all-time favorite G1 character. Considering his attack on the AFB in the first movie (big energy 'shockwave' Blackout releases), it's fitting.

    The colors are nearly perfect. The only thing I would have done differently is added some dark gray or darker purple to some of the panels, just for some variation. Maybe some yellow striping on the vehicle mode nose area that transfers to bot mode as SW's trademark chest. Dunno.

    I have to agree that the cannon doesn't really look like a chain gun, but so what. It looks enough like Shockwave's cannon to be good. Besides, a Cybertronian arm cannon is better than a chain-gun any day.

    Overall, very well done, my friend.
