    I basically did the same thing a million other people did on this, but instead of leaving his origanal weapon, or giving him a G1 gun, I cannibalized Omega Supreme and used his arm as Shockwave's cannon arm, he's painted in testors acrylics blue, gloss dark blue, acrylic black, and silver. the larger cannon is removable, and their is a smaller more G1esque cannon underneath, I doubt anyone will even bother to comment on this, but he's been sittig on the back burner for a very, very long time and with Dotm Shockwave coming out I figured I'd better put him out here before the hoard of Dotm Shockwave kitbashes appear.I'm too lazy to upload his thirty billion different vehicle modes. I know he needs some work in places.

    That is a big ass gun arm. I think you have a cool idea. Only thing really needed is a smoother paint job.

    Heh, interesting idea.

    And yeah, thinner coats of paint for sure.

    The reason the paint is rather thick, is that I plan on weathering him, and having him have kind of a grimy beat up look.

    The arm idea is original! I like seeing these and seeing the little differences everybody adds. He'll look good weathered in my opinion.
