    Hi, so this is my second full custom and because I got siege shockwave for $30 on Amazon, I decided to make it a Nitro Zeus!

    I think i put too much graffiti type details on him and i probably shouldn't have done what little dry-brushing i did to him, but i think it turned out alright. I might come back to this guy to do some modifications. I particularly don't like the shockwave blaster instead of a hand and naturally some touch ups here and there wouldn't hurt either.
    Update: I did do some modifications and tweaking and I got it to about here.

    What I did was I implanted some hands from siege springer, as well as some of his accessories. I came up with the idea right after I posted this thread.

    I didn't realise how bad the first pictures were. So here's a better one.

    That looks really cool. We definitely need a Generations Nitro Zeus.

    Cool. I haven't seen the Last Knight yet, but from what I've read, Nitro Zeus is some sort of Shockwave fan boy? This makes sense.

    I like the graffiti and dry-brushing from what I can see/tell. The first two pictures are just a bit blurry. I suggest putting your elbows on sturdy ground and natural and/or neon lighting ;) 
    I'm looking forward to see more pictures and updates on this custom. Do you still transform him?

    Interesting idea, but I do think the graffiti is a bit much. With how prominent it is he almost looks messy rather than decorated.

    I can still transform him, but I never really intended for him to be transformed. There are still spots that I haven't painted. Maybe I'll come up with a fan mode for him that looks more fitting of nitro zeus.

    Did some more tweaks. Specifically the decepticon symbol and the blocks of black on the chest panel, as well as the black on his legs.
