    Now THIS is the Shockwave I wanted. This was totally inspired by Jin Saotome. I loved what he did with the Jetfire arms. I posted and asked so many questions and researched other customs before I finally did my own. I used a Universe Treadbolt figure for the arms (Now I have to find arms for poor ol' Treadbolt...oh WAIT! I did...). Sacrificed another Shockblast or Six Shot figure for the matching shoulder. Then I cut out the arms off of Treadbolt and modded them to fit the shoulders. Since I have no proper tools for that I had to improvise. I used the stove and a screw driver to melt holes on both arms!

    Then did my usual thing. Flat black base coat, drybrush silver and aluminum, and then used two shades of purple and yellow for the eye. The purple came out slightly lighter than the 1.5 version.

    I REALLY REALLY love this custom. Thanks for the inspiration Jin.

    More pics coming soon.

    Great to see you doing more extensive modding, my friend.

    I'm so gonna have to buy you a Dremel kit for Xmas, so you can really unleash your skills!

    I've finally got a head coming for Ironfist, so we might actually get that project off the ground soon!

    Hurry up! I'm running out of things to customize! I've thinking of painting my cat black and adding side missiles.

    Drink Pepsi.

    Thanks!
