    Good Evening buddies!

    This custom is a result of my twisted mind working hard in order to bring up a good representation of my favorite TF ever.
    I'm a huge fan of Shockwave, so logic ditated that I had to give him a total new altmode resembling his G1 form and somehow blending a spaceship inspired by his WFC incarnation.

    Shockwave is Ultra class, siding in height with Universe Onslaught and Powerglide.

    This is the W.I.P Thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/485540-voyager-shockwave-early-w-i-p.html

    Yes, he supposed to be Voyager size, but due to a few modifications on the original project he now tops all the other CHUG voyager guys.

    My greatest expressions of gratitude to my brother Ricbot, who patiently executed the excellent Tamiya X-16 purple paint apps on this guy.

    Thanks Ricardo, you really rock bro!

    Thanks for everyone who followed my W.I.P thread.

    Peace.

    This in my opinion is the best update of Shockwave ever! This is coming from a G1Shockwave fanboy.

    Yo,I bet SW is the main character of the "Joeyverse",with all that fanboysm of yours and all,lol
    It'd be nice to see him with JoeyCopter Megatron,btw.

    But man,this looks great now that it's finished!One of the best and most unique Shockies around,without a doubt undoubtely.
    Told ya he'd end up being an Ultra,you also owe that Ricbot guy a LOT,because that paint job is pro.

    your design is epic, but i think it could benift from scaling the chest down by 15 to 20%

    but the paint and design for alt mode are spectacular man

    really great take on ole shockwave

    I can't believe how well those Valkyrie limbs work for Shocky. His chest does seem a little oversized but - well - why not? :lol  His altmode definitely works & as for the overall finish - Very nice job Mate! Looking Good! :thumb

    The chest is adjustable, depending on the pose i can put it up and down.
    Thanks a lot man.

    Thanks man, this is my fave too! very appreciated!

    Yes, for the moment he's the fave, the first and thus the only figure of my Joeyverse collection, unfortunately he's completely out of scale with my CHUG collection, otherwise I'd put him standing among the others.
    And yeah you were right all the time about his scale...Just miscalculated his height and now your theory proved completely right.
    The Megatron Chopter will be revisited soon, for I want to implement him some new details and take better pics. I'll frame 'em two together when I finish.

    Ricbot really made a good work and all he wants to hear from me is : "Thanks pal, drinks on me tonight" Lols

    Thanks a lot for ur comments dude, this custom is certainly unique.!!

    Thanks a lot man!

    I had two different chest pieces prepared for him. This one and a thinner and streamlined one, I opted for this one because it looks kinda "IDWish" and also gives him more brutallity appeal.

    Thank you for ur comments bro!

    Thanks a lot my bro!

    Nice reading it from you SM, if you approved him then I think that I succeded with my work.

    Thanks a lot man!

    Thanks a lot bro, this silver parts are original from the mold and I just decided to keep it as is.
    Cheers pal!

    Haha, what's wrong with the homage bro? I think it's because of the font I've chosen. Anyway I'd never reproduce that cover accordingly. I suck at photoshop.

    Thanks a lot bro!

    Thanks man, I just exagerated his chest so that he could be more brutal as I explained before.
    I'm glad you liked him! Cheers!

    I think that alt mode is flat out awesome. The robot mode is as well, but the center chest piece bothers me a bit. It just sticks out on a design level. I think it's a bit large, and also it's the largest piece, yet it has no tech detail.

    I really enjoy your work, and have for a while now. Thanks so very much for sharing here :thumb

    Very well executed, and it's nice to finally see this project completed!

    My only gripe, as others have said, is that the chest piece seems out of place. Even being positionable, it still seems a bit too large. I can understand it in that it goes towards the alt mode (which is FANTASTIC, BTW), but in bot mode it seems disproportionate to the rest of the figure.

    That aside, it's one of my top five favorite Shockwave interpretations here!

    I was gonna say the chest looks a bit large but considering the alt-mode I think it's pretty reasonable :)  oh and very nice custom the mold and paint is amazing! :D
