    This is my first ever custom. I'd been sitting on the fence about customizing for quite some time but felt that I needed to fix this figure. As soon as I got the FoC Shockwave, I knew his legs were terrible. He and the FoC Jazz(coming soon) have immensely skinny legs that actually hinder them from having a full range of poses without support, not to mention they just looked like awkward chickens.

    I really like the way it's been going so far. I'm using the DotM Shockwave for parts, and I'm really trying only to take parts from that one figure to see how it ends up.

    The picture with me holding it is because the larger feet are not actually attached in vehicle mode, I still have to figure that out. I'll be adding a lot more as I progress, just wanted to see what people thought of the idea and the larger legs. I think they look awesome XD

    what if you attached the legs to the side piece that rotates down? that way it will be fixed, but not sure how that would look in alt mode.
