    The TFTM:The Game was fun for me because of the G1 skins. One of the earlier levels had Shockwave as a boss, a triple changing helicopter/gun turret, and I thought "Someone's gonna beat me to this one!"

    Well, I haven't seen one yet, so this is my next bash. I won't be able to get a triple changer out of him, but I do plan on mounting him with some SERIOUS fire power. So far, I found 2 of these WW2 machine guns and I received some military decals from a friend of mine. I'm not certain if I should build a head more G1 for him, or if I should mod the Swindle head in the digibash.

    Any feedback appreciated.

    I like swindles head, but i think it could have a little more to it. I'd love to see him with a complicated head design of Megatron, but have all the shockwave elements.

    Looks good...I like the digi...as far as the head, only thing I would do to it is to remove the outer ring from around the eye....

    but thats just me....

    for some reason, the eye on this head always reminded me of a window on a ship.

    Same here with his eye, but it would be interesting to see him with a gun for his left hand and I think that gun you have could do the trick and make it attachable. Maybe with magnets or such that well its hard for me to explain, but you get the idea.

    I think you could use the shockwave head from his Robot heroes figure. Its probably just the right size for the blackout body . Would probably just have to turn his head sideways when in chopper mode.
    Good luck with this one , it looks pretty cool in digibash so far :)

    Cool, then it's settled. G1 head rebuild it is!! I think I'll take a close look at Viagra's WWI Shockwave as a guide. That one was sweet. I'll try to make it more "Movie".

    Very nice start. I love your customs. Any plans on changing out his left hand for a gun?

    Dude, its cool. I have mentioned that this gun hand should be removable, maybe somewhere in alt mode, but still its your call.

    I was thinking of maybe modding the existing left hand, removing everything from the palm up, so I still have the base. Then, cutting off he barrel of a rifle (I know I have one SOMEWHERE), and mounting it to that. That way, it still folds upward when he transforms.

    I wanted to add some stubby-kinda-Airwolf wings (??) on the L&R parts of his shoulder/housing, to mount the machine guns in Alt mode, and attach under his L&R arms in bot mode. If I can pull it off, have both guns also attach to the upper blade housing while hand held for a massive cannon. Chain fed with both ammo cans.

    Thoughts? :2c:  ?

    You might want to go with a darker shade of purple; the one you have seems a bit too cartoonish. Also, perhaps you could make the sensor-sphere on the front of the helicopter into a little G1-style cannon? Regardless, I look forward to all and any updates.
