Jin made that. it's in the customs forum.
Neato. A extensive and expensive custom. noticed he fitted the shoulders from classics prime.
The alt modes are so stunning it clearly is'nt energon shockblast anymore.
alot of love went into this piece.
a transformers fan and his/her money are soon parted. It's great (and All of Jin's customs are excellent Transformer or Marvel Legend) but just like the movie customs, I wonder why these idiots are paying so much for them. I wish I had that type of money to burn.
While this custom is cool, I find it odd that something that wasn't even in the movie is generating higher bids than any of his other ebay movie character customs.
a shame other's customs that are at least as good as that don't get even a fraction of that kind of money when they get sold.
Unfortunately it's all about the name. Great for people who get customs that are just as good and/or better from other customizers. Bad for those other guys putting in all the hard work.
Don't get me wrong, most of Jin's work is excellent, but he had a craptastic 08 BB custom (panel lines by a drunk monkey) go for another ******ed dollar amount because of who he is, and no other reason. I would never lump this one in with that 08 BB though. This Shockwave is by far the best TF I have seen him do.
its pretty, and well painted, and I also like the gunhand... but I dont like his alt mode.. in person it would bug me that he's not really transformed, just sittin on a stand. granted, the original toy is close to the same way, but its not so obvious.
You love the parts that magically vanish in Bot mode too. I know you do.
Where did Prime's trailer go?
you can hate the price, but the skill is gold. It is the best shockwave custom I have ever seen period
duh roller and the trailer went to vegas baby!
keep in mind Jin sets the starting prices on these really, really low. he can't be blamed for the prices people want to pay.
Yeah, this auction started at $1, it's not Jin's fault it's up to $800.
Obviously they want something truly unique, and have lots of money to burn. I couldn't contemplate spending $800 on a toy personally.
I was at Walmart today and saw the generic toy set for $10 that has all those extra parts. A person just needs to apply himself to make something similar if they wanted to.
keep in mind that there're still 4 days left, so who knows how high the final price will jump to.......
Excellent custom, but the price..... you can already get a MISB g1 shockwave with that.
I think it also helps that he is getting really really good pictures for his auctions...whomever he is using...those pictures are very sharp...they look like professional photos...
Ultimate shockwave omg that guy Jin is good! Love the stand.
Oh I wasn't calling Jin a bad guy or saying he was charging ridiculous amounts. I was saying I think the bidders are silly for bidding his stuff up so high (compared to the selling price of customs of the same quality) based on his name. It's the same as buying a Lexus instead of buying the Toyota; that is the exact same car, for thousands less...just so you can say "I drive a Lexus."
