Hey guys and gals, here is the new Fall of Cybertron Shockwave maxed out with LEDs and Laser effects!
Like many, I was a little bit disappointed in the new Generations FoC figures. They seemed to suffer a reduction in both size and paint apps. Not much we can do with the size, but a full repaint was definitely in order!
Of course I couldn't resist the urge to liven 'ol Skocks up with some pink and purple LEDs!
Pink LED eye
Pink LEDs in the chest
Pink LEDs in the lower torso
Purple LEDs in his cannon, activated in either botmode and altmode!
Accompanying with the cannon LEDs is a laser blast effect!
I realized I wasn't too bothered by the shorter stature of the new Generations figures but I was bothered by Shockwave's skinny lower legs, which weren't accurate at all to the CG model. So I took the armor plates off a second Shockwave and added them to the inside of his lower legs to fill them out. Makes a huge difference and does not affect transformation!
The cannon is powered by a very G1 styled hose for his arm, the trigger button resides on the cannon itself. Careful planning allowed me to retain the blast feature in alt. mode simply by pressing the top of the space cannon down!
Micro plugs allow secure connections, and the batteries are replaceable!
Enough rambling on, let's let the pics do the talking! Don't forget to check the video demo out to view Shockwave fully! Enjoy!
