    Man this guy has been sitting on my table half finished for a long time now. Finally got the time to finish him and others up. Hulk Transformer Figure with a bumblebee blaster for the arm and Shockblast head. Purple is semi Metallic and looks fantastic if I do say so myself.

    Absolutely fantastic! This is a really, really great paint job.

    It's sort of interesting using the Hulk bot too. I mean, you have Shockwave as this scientist-type who is now this huge, brutish figure. Does he lose his temper too?

    Nice work.

    I've always thought this mold was to beefy to be anything but hulk.
    But this works out pretty good.
    Everything looks great, mods, paint & the topper, you got rid of the toes !!!!
    Nicely done Tony.

    I like it! Kind of an odd choice for a base figure for 'ol Shocky, but I'm not familiar with WWI. Seems the hand and blaster are interchangeable, magnets? I think the purple is fantastic as well! The X-over Hulk is turning into quite the bashers choice! I am using him as well for one!:thumbs2:

    Beautiful paint job and I agree that purple looks really nice. Something about the mode doesn't scream Shockwave to me though, even War Within Shockwave. Maybe it's too much brute looking? The slenderish head doesn't quite fit the body.

    Thanks very much! My theory on this version of shockwave is that he was a rather violent brutish Decepticon prior to G1. He lashed out at Megatron who sliced off his left hand and reprogrammed him to be a servant to him for his treason. And now we all know him as the purple gun that does not have emotion.

    Thanks a bunch, I saw all your comments about the toes, LOL, knew I had to, they looked funny to me.

    Yup! Thanks!

    Cool, do it! That'll be awesome.

    Yup Magnets indeed. I love this Figure, so darn cool.

    Thanks, the head was originally going to have all the neck of the Shockblast figure as well as some mods to the head, didn't work out though. Wouldn't fit in the cavity. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks man! The head is tight but if you push the head completely forward before putting it inside the chest it fits nicely.

    Thanks bro! A Hulkish style Optimus prime has crossed my mind several times before, one of these days.

    So sweet. It makes him look like he would pull a 'Bot apart just to take a look at the insides. Fantastic.

    That is one Big Bad Shockwave!
    i think he'd be able to put Megatron in his place :D 
    Dose he still transform properly, due to the Shockwave head?

    Awwwwww, this custom makes me sad, because... well, I have the exact same thing on my work bench right now, half finished. It's been that way for a good couple of months now. :p 

    I believe one of the first things I did was remove the 'toes', as well. The cannon I'm working in used to be Vector Prime's Minicon. I also plan on working in tubing for the cannon, ala G1, and maybe use it along with some wire for an LED in his cannon. We'll see. The head I'll be using will come from Alt Shocky.

    Supplies and tools have been my major setbacks. Over the course of the year I've broken just about every bit I have for my Dremel, LOL. It's really cramping my progress with this custom, as well as Predaking.

    Anyway, I really like your Shockwave! I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only guy that thought of this when I saw it, eheh. I thought the cannon barrel was very similar to his old G1 barrel, and the vents on his chest sort of looked like his G1 chest as well...

    So maybe I'm not certifiably nuts after all. :>

    Great job, Tony! I hope mine is at least half as good as yours.

    - Alty

    You know that's probably what it is. A big hulking body like that needs a head with a huge neck (or no neck at all, lol) like those big body builders have.

    I think the mold is a tad on the bulky side for Shockwave, but (as always) it's very well done. Great work, man! :thumb 

    I'm glad to see you making some things again, btw :)
