    a little on the pink side, but a drop or 2 of "grabber blue" should pull it a little more towards the purple/pink on Shockwave.

    Promising looking project you got here...

    UPDATE DECEMBER 11TH;

    Not much to say for an update, aside from a few slight adjustments on the Shockwave body to allow for full arm movement. These pictures are mostly a mock-up of the full figure.....in its rough stages of course

    lol I should ask the commissioner if I should paint the cap bright orange for the lolz.


    also gang, the gun itself....does it look goofy with that little extension (HA ha) in the middle?

    :D  thanks man, bet you can imagine how I feel making it :lol 

    well once I can get more styrene I'll have more updated pictures. The Skywarp waist just doesn't cut it, so when in doubt, build it from scratch right?

    UPDATE! DECEMBER 22ND;

    Yes, I actually have an update. With the shipment of styrene (thanks again to Grand_Maximus. And don't worry, still plenty for your commissions man ;)  ), I was able to finish off the waist and the second leg. Still finishing up the head, and awaiting moving to my dorm to grab some much-needed Tamiya putty to smooth out the corners and overall shape.

    I have also decided on a colour; Krylon Plum for the main body, and some Testors purple lacquer for the gun, hand and chest piece.

    in any case, here's the images;

    How will the larger legs end up affecting the alt mode?

    completely affects it. ;)  the commissioner wanted an articulate Shockwave, as I (think I) mentioned earlier. Well that and once I finished the first leg, I didn't want to rip it back off and possibly damage the G1 Shockwave leg ^^;

    Yeah, the reason I ask is:

    I'm just interested in seeing it transformed, given the bulk of the legs.

    hey todd, wanted to post a pic of the similar work I've been doing on MP Megatron's legs. all styrene. It was tough hitting all the curves and details on the legs, but I widened them about 3/4" each

    hmm...well, I guess it wouldn't hurt; the legs were the only things preventing me from transformation. lol I guess I didn't want to ruin something I thought I got right ;)  but I suppose that sort of judgment comes with experience

    all right, I'll give it a try! :D

    UPDATE! DECEMBER 23RD;

    a Major MAJOR update for today guys. After numerous suggestions to thin the legs, I decided to stop being stubborn and go for it.


    Note to self for next time: LISTEN TO THE PROFESSIONALS!


    Anyways, what have I accomplished...

    - thinned out the legs to allow for a much easier to grip handle for the commissioner.
    - started work on gun mode, set foundation for said mode
    - continued with aesthetic details
