    The G1 figure is already in perfect scale with the MP line (well, the Seekers anyway. Once the iGear versions of Prime & Megatron are released, it'll be perfect. But, I digress...), but it could use a bit of tweaking here and there.

    If everything goes according to plan, he'll have a new set of legs (replacing those uber-skinny ones from the G1 figure), new shoulder movement (360-degree movement instead of just vertical), an articulated right hand and a brand new paint job.

    Here are the WIP pics so far:

    Awesome! I'm all for bringing Shockwave into the 21st century. Will his new legs still be able to retract?

    I like the way this is going.
    I'll be keeping an eye on this custom.
    Too bad that a classic G1 toy has to be sacrificed.
    Can't wait.....

    Awesome, looking forward to seeing this. How much extra articulation do you you hope to the legs and feet? Presumably it'll be pretty tough, unless you're scratchbuilding a fair bit of it..

    Legs should still retract. Here's a new pic:

    we in the same route...im just bought KO shockwave...actually im already got G1 classsic like custom of this character but decide to do new one regarding of the MP scale...probably will start it after my MP Soundwave finish

    the question is how you gonna turn the gun handle later on?because the leg quite fat..or is he turn into something different?

    Well, still can't get this silly phone to let me edit posts, but I'm curious as wan_de_real is as well, but aren't they new legs to wide for the alt gun mode? Either way, still awesome :)

    Can't wait to see the results. Although it pains me to see this done to a G1 fig =(

    I'm looking forward to seeing how you transform the legs with them being wider.
