    Hi everyone! I have seen many, many Shockwave customs on here. I just ordered myself an Energon Shockblast with the intent of painting him up and turning him into a Classics Style Shockwave. I plan and changing out his arms since the giant cannon is too big and the other arm is a bit goofy looking. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good pair of arms to use? I was thinking classics Megatron, but he's quite expensive and I don't have an extra one laying around. Also, how would you go about adding his gun hand? Thanks for the help in advance!

    I've seen people use Cybertron Scattershot and Classics Jetfire/Treadbolt to great effect, there are lots of alternatives. Solrac333 is the man for this custom, so check his threads out, he has a selection that he has done using different arm configurations. Though it has been done by several folks, so a search in the Radicons forum will turn up lots of results with hints in each. Good luck with this, I never get tired of this custom.

    i used universe 2.0 countdown/cybertron defense red alerts arms.
    not as bulky but still nice.

    i haunt work out the cannon part out yet tho but a lot of people use either g1, alternators or just make their own cannon from scratch

    Here's a link to my old Shockwave WIP. I originally started out using the Universe Dropshot arms, but didn't like how large and bulky they were, so I changed it out when I found an old customs thread from '06. It inspired me to change the arms out. The arm cannon tip is from one of the flip-out guns on Classics Jetfire (his backpack).

    I did start painting on this a bit, but haven't finished or taken any new WIP shots on it. It's still on the WIP shelf though! lol

    I also used Dropshot's arms. They worked great.
