    The War Within Shockwave based on Don Figueroa's concept art. It's scratchbuild from styrene. Some of you may remember I started this guy 2 years ago. It was put on hold for about a year and I've finally able to finish it. He appears blue in some of the pics. Those were taken without flash because flash sometimes cover the details. I've included a pic (3rd pic) using flash and the color is purple which is the true color in real life. I've also included a couple of pics showing the lighting (which can be turned on by pressing the button on top of his left forearm).

    I think it could use a bit more detailing, but it is still an absolute incredible piece of work nonetheless.

    Great Job! I'm always amazed at scratchbuilts.

    Am I mistaken, or is the transformation somewhat loosely based off of Titanium Fallen?

    Yes, I'm extremely happy that you finished this bugger! I wish we'd've gotten one of these as a legit toy. I second Lobo's call for a photo of him and your WW Grimlock together, one for each mode!

    Nice.

    Now I want to see an updated WW Shockwave as he appeared in TWW - in other words, a new G1 Shockwave.
