    This is another one of those "just gotta do it!" projects, one that a lot of customizers do eventually.

    My version is a real Frankenstein, being made up of parts from Energon Shockblast, Six-Shot, Snow-Cat, and Demolishor, Armada Megatron, and a hand from an ML Modok. He'll also have an Energon Blade thanks to a Happywell Road-Bot, and some extra firepower cribbed fom a Kids-Connection MARS set (thanks for the tip Jin!).

    A missile launcher from Snow-Cat. It also has two peg-holes that allow the addition of other energon weapons.

    The "shield-blaster" from Shockblast's old right arm slides nice and snug on the forearms. I may alter the blasters a bit to look a bit less plain.

    I had to do a few alterations with some Fixit-Sculpt. Love the stuff. By using more parts from Six-Shot and some Fixit-Sculpt, I was able to lengthen the legs by a centimeter.

    Some of the accessories that will be used in one way or another.

    I still have to do some sanding on the legs where I added the sections, wash the figure to remove any mold-release, figure out how to best attach the energon blade, and - of course - paint him up.

    Anyway, I think he's looking pretty neat so far, and he looms over Classics Megatron and Prime by about an inch, which I dig.

    Comments are welcome! :D

    It's amazing what the removal of that giganto arm can do to this mold. Mine is permanently slouching to the side because of that damn thing.

    Looks promising. I wanted to do something like this, but I could never find a Sixshot to use for the spare parts (not for a reasonable price at least).

    Will he still transform into a satellite?

    Looking awesome almost the same vein like Jin's, but it'll be different of course. Keep us updated.

    This is awesome, but a question is at hand:

    Is shockwave a frankenstein in transformers? (hey, i'm new!!)

    Shockwave created some Franenstein-type bodies, depending on the storyline you follow, but he wasn't one himself. He was the first Transformer commercially released (in 1984) with a Cybertronian alt mode; all the other ones had Earth-based alt modes at the time.

    He's distinctive in other ways - gun arm, single eye, in charge of Cybertron during Megs' absence (G1 TV show), temporary leader of the Decepticons (G1 comic), later revealed (post-G1 G1-based comics) to have a strong scientific, almost mad scientist, bent.

    In other words, he's an all-around unique character and one who has not been officially redone in a manner that was true to the original (though the Alternator was a decent attempt).

    Thanks for the feedback guys :D 


    SMOG: He'll still be able to transform into a satellite, yes. However he'll have a couple more modes besides.

    grock35: Fixit-Sculpt is REALLY strong. Its hard without being brittle, which is why it can be used for many types of repair applications around the home.

    Lumpy: You can transfom him into an approximation of his G1 Gun self, but it doesn't look too great. His main mode will be a rotating cannon. He'll also be able to turn into the mobile cannon and satellite like Shockblast. I really like some of the stuff defstar did with his, especially the cannon mode.

    either way Shockwave is going to be a badass Decepticon, who you dont want to mess with.

    One tip of advice, don't make the chest pink. A while ago, a basher did that on their Classics Shockwave, and it looked hideous. Sadly, it ruined the look of the whole figure.
