    Shockwave ver 4.0

    You know, at my house, it used to be there was always a nice stock of extra batteries around. When my camera batteries died it was no problem to swap them out for some fresh ones. And then the damned Nintendo Wii came out. :banghead:  Now when I need fresh AA's for my camera there's nothing in there but that extra 9V for the smoke alarm and some AAA's. Sigh...

    The reason I mention batteries is because the ones in my camera have died on me and I haven't taken the Alt mode pictures,yet. Ill get them aken and uploaded soon. This is a commissioned Shockwave for a very patient canucklehead (Blame Canada!). On this one I used the right arm and shoulder from 2 Energon Six shots. I filled in the empty area with epoxy putty and sanded them smooth. For the shoulders I sanded down the Decepticon shield and filled the area with putty, also sanding down the details on the front to pull off the single set of shoulders look.

    The hand is a custom cast (By me...yay!!) with all 5 fingers being fully articulated. The cord came from a unnamed Mcfarlane figure. Primed with Krylon Camo Ultra Flat Black. Painted with Game's Workshop Liche Purple/Mithral Silver and custom mixed colors for highlights and washes. More pics HERE. Enjoy!

    I think this is one of the very first times I've actually liked this mold [in robot mode]. I really like everything you've done here. :thumb 

    As far as batteries are concerned, having multiple packs of rechargeable batteries can be helpful. At one point, I was using a camera that used 4 AA batteries, and what I'd do is have the batteries in my camera and two spare sets waiting to go. Each time I used a set, I'd place the drained set on a charger, and just kept the cycle going. :)  I hope that helps! If not, those multipacks are for you man :D

    Great Shockwave. I like the gritty look he has, makes him look a bit more crazy.

    I was wondering what Shockwave would look like if the leftover right-arms were modded and used. Now I know. Looks great! :)

    I think I'm going to have to man up and keep my batteries in my workshop, not just in the kitchen cabinet...and lie when the family asks "Do you have any extra batteries?" :lol 

    Dude, games are expensive in more ways that one, huh?

    Thanks, man.

    Gracias, Dave.

    I just saw the BEAST your working using those same Shockwave parts. He looks awesome per your usual. Thanks for the love, man.

    I like the way the colors make him look kind of monochromatic or tinted like in a photo. It suits his character.

    Cool. What does he turn into? I guess just a tank from the treads. I second the spiffy monochrome-tinted look that Mazinger brought up.
