    The other day I got to thinking how the Classics Megatron mold could be used to make a Shockwave - both transform into guns after all and I was sure changes could be made!

    After studying all available photos, I think I figured out the mechanics of Classics Megatron's transformation under the 'wings' and set about figuring out how Shockwave would work. There are a few changes to the mold aside from the head, missing arm cannon and hand swap:

    - Breastplate will be modded - the trademark chest piece will be present on his body at a vertical angle on his back. On the front, it will be able to rotate 90 degrees so that the chest can be made (and symetry can be maintained)

    - A bit of stuff added to the crotchpiece to bulk it up
    - Scope sight added on to arm in place of arm cannon
    - Fuel line added to back; will plug out of crotchpiece (I think there's a hole on the top of it for the cannon) and into the arm in robot mode.

    interesting idea. I think the gun mode looks a little off though. that's why they opted for the "wings"

    Meh, 99% of the time I only really care about the bot mode, and either way that looks a lot better than Megs, who looks like he just went on a rampage in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

    if that's how the mold transforms, that would certainly work, but it'd still have the wings on it so it looks like a proper gun alt mode...

    Only thing I'm not sure about on my idea is how I'll do his chest - if the chest DOES rotate then it'll be a LOT easier...
