    While just a work in progress, I figured I'd post what I have done thus far. This mish-mash of Energon Shockblast, Six-Shot, and Dropshot is destined to become an homage to the pre-Transformer, Astro-Magnum.

    For those of you who recall, I have previously worked with this mold before, for my 'Classics' Shockwave (WIP thread here). Since I sold that one, I will be making another version of that one also, and while the Shockblast/Sixshot body will still be the base for that figure, I'll be doing some different things with it than I have before.

    Astro-magnum will have a paint-scheme in dark-gray and gunmetal, with accents in silver, with sparing highlights in red and white. I still have a fair amount of tweaking and modding to do before I get to that point, however.

    My thanks to friendship pony for the extra Six-Shot parts! Comments and questions are welcome as always :)

    I absolutely LOVE the mods you have done on him. The cannon arm looks superb!

    Thanks! :) 

    The cannon is a combo of the base from Energon Megatron's tank accessory, and a cannon-piece from R.I.D Ultra Magnus' weapon. I also opted to give him 2/3rds of Dropshot's upper-legs, to further distinguish him, and to make him a bit taller to boot.

    Thanks! Making something from E-Shockblast/Six-Shot is one of the most common customs that customizers tackle. As such, I felt it was important to do a little something different with this one where I could.

    Niiiice, I always thought Astro Magnum should get more attention. Can't wait to see the colours. :)

    I love the build on him so far. Wjhy do I think he'd also make a killer Devcon if you added a different head?

    Thanks! And damn, that's not a half-bad idea. I won;t do it with this one, but that could indeed look pretty badass.
