    Here's another blast from the past!

    Last time, we did up the massive Earth-based Space Bridge Entrance and the Space Bridge Shuttle.

    So now, it's time to do the other exit for transformers beaming back to Cybertron - which is this elevator like exit which is located in Shockwave's laboratory!

    The overall dimension of this piece is sized to comfortably fit a deluxe or voyager sized transformer.

    The door slides open and close, using a pencil or peg, to slide it left or right from above:

    Here's a more regular user for this contraption - Beam me up, Shocky!

    Leader class bots (without too much greebles) may fit too with a little bit of wriggling in, but ...

    .... they really need to mind their heads on their way out! :p

    The overall piece is compatible with the overall CyberBase System (Heavy/Scratch: - CyberBase Display System) so building up an entire display or diorama with this would be a nice possibility

    Files are available here if anyone's keen to get 3d printing these a whirl - https://www.patreon.com/posts/34735568 =)

    Now then, let's say the reason ol' Shockwave doesn't fit comfortably in this is because he is meant to go on top on a platform? :D

    Of course, this additional portion which sits on top of the Space Bridge Tower just needed to be done up. For where else would the mighty Shockwave perch up above it all?

    Presenting then - Shockwave's Tower as we saw it appear on our screens way back in the first pilot episode of the Transformers back in '84!

    Photographing this piece was a challenge due to the height of it exceeding the size of the photo booth!

    Gonna have to print out more base tiles for a proper display, and toss in the Deception Terminal pieces soon :p
