    Some of you may remember this custom I started about 2 years ago. I took a break on doing customs for awhile so this was placed on the shelves. I decided to go back to working on it and here's some latest pics. Basically I finished the head mechanism and added the 2 vents on each side of the head. The pic of the alt mode is an older pic. I didn't want to transform him to take new alt pics yet. I've included a pic of Don Figueroa's concept art of The War Within Shockwave for those not familiar with the design.

    Update 3/16/08:
    Added the treads to the legs. Added canopy to cover the head. Added a bit more bulk to the gun. It's pretty much done actually. Just need to fill some gaps with putty here and there and sand him smooth, then paint.

    Holy crap! I've never seen this before!

    Awesome scratchbuild! Judging from the hand parts, he must be HUGE.

    Can't wait to see the final stages!

    Glad you finally decided to work on this again. I was wondering what'd happened to it. It's looking just as great as I remember it.

    He's about 10 inches tall from head to toe (taller if you count the treads in the back). The hand and gun is from an Alt Shockblast.

    Yep, most of Don Figueroa's War Within designs are stocky, beefy looking which is why I love it too. Of course I try to scratchbuild the figures to have that same look.

    Yeah, the gun is a bit small but I wanted to use a gun that's clear because I installed a light in that arm. Pressing a button would light up the gun. I added some extra parts to the bottom part of the gun (just like the TWW designs) so it helps to make it look bigger.

    I'm not sure if I'll finish this by botcon but I'm not planning to go anyways. I do look forward to seeing what you have planned for the contest. Is it the Nova Prime you're currently working on or something else?

    Cool man. I was wondering when you were gonna finish this one. I said it before and I`ll say it again. WW Shockwave is gonna be badass!! I`m currently doing a WW Sidswipe but modded from another line/character so it`s not a scratchbuild. I don`t posess any kind of engineering skills at all. This one will put mine to shame. Anyway, good luck on finishing him. I can`t wait.:thumb

    Cool! I did not know you were working on him! I was thinking about making him my first scratchbuild, maybe I will do the Hearts of Steel version instead.

    Don't not do it just because VP is doing it, I mean, Lobo is working on a Hearts of Steel version, and I wouldn't want that to stop you from trying that either.

    Yeah I still want to make him eventually(I want to do quite a few from TWW & HOS) but I would like to do something no one else is currently.
