    Hi there,
    here i show you a custom well painted by the fellow radicon Cheetimus prime
    also he added the shockwave's head from a recast if i am correct
    it was a commission with those particular colors, and i'm plaised with the result.

    once this nice piece of work got here, i've replaced his left fist with a cannon from one the gun thats come in the BTS trailer set for the classics optimus mold
    then drilled a hole in his arm and pluged in the cable (still removeable for the transformation, the cannon can be keeped on since it move like on a balljoint and so, can leave the necessary clearance for the vehicule mode)
    i've added the decepticons symbols on various places for both mode
    it's outline logo from reprolabels, i had to cut somes in two part due to the transformation.

    while this custom have been done quite a few times already by various people
    it's still a very good concept, and when nicely done, it's a very good alternative to the botcon customisation one, since this exclusive will stay innacessible for most collectors, and even if it was, doesnt scream shockwave that's much in my opinion (something due to his colors i guess)
    I'm sure we'll see a lot of others realisation on this concept.

    enough talking, time for pics (not a lot though, Cheetimus have a thread with the initial attempt on this concept with more pics, dont hesitate to check out)
