    It seems like Shockwave learnt a thing or two from ROTF Megatron about the visible head below the turret! :D  Awesome job by the way, I'm loving the giant cannon! :)

    Looks awesome. Great use of the legs but in some angles, they look skinny. Still, AWESOME!

    Those legs do look great on the figure. Where are the arms from though? Is it the original Shockblast's leg panels on them throwing me off?

    the base arms look like U. Silverbolts. i've seen those panels numerous times, cant place them.

    awesome shockwave!

    Very nice!

    I think the different legs make a HUGE difference as most Shockwave customs that use the Energon Shockblast as a base are dragged down by the crappy looking feet that look like platform shoes.

    Looks ace ! The grey barrel seems a bit too big in proportion to the rest though, imo....

    Ah, you're right. They are Silverbolt's. The outer panels are from Shockblast's legs. Couldn't tell you what the inner ones are from.

    I love it... those legs are a perfect match for Shockwave! Nice call. This is a great-looking rendition of classic Shox... skinny legs and all! :D 

    I have to admit, I'm not digging the cannon barrel so much... it's HUGE, but it doesn't feel "robust" enough to carry the size. Maybe some surface mechanical detailing might help it match the feeling of the rest of the figure, though simply transplanting a G1 Shockwave (or KO version) gun barrel might work too.
