Transfomers: SHOCKWAVE (Fall of Cybertron / G1) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:45529  
Name:Transfomers: SHOCKWAVE (Fall of Cybertron / G1)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Transformers
Creator:blaynescott  
Date Added:December 27, 2012
Base Figure:FOC Shockwave
Height:5.50 inches
Completion Time:10.00 hours
Articulation:25 points
A 'classics' style Shockwave, similar to the Marvel Comics Transformers "Are All Dead" cover Shockwave.

Recipe:
-FOC Shockwave (legs removed)
-TF Cyclonus Classics (figure's legs swapped in)
-Black flexible plastic forearm adapter + clear Pink/Purple Gun cast by a member at TFW2005.

Figure was sanded down in rub-prone areas, had all metallic areas painted with Mr. Hobby Super Metallic Chrome. Spray painted the whole masked figure with Tamiya Violet spraypaint, then drybrushed Vallejo Royal Purple over the whole figure. Mixed that color both up and down (brighter/darker) for the edge highlighting. Fushia/Neon-Magenta color was also Vallejo acrylics + a black wash (Citadel Black Ink) in some areas, with additional dry brushing.

Sealed with Mr. Hobby Super Clear Matte Spray. Zero paint rub, after multiple transformations/handling.

Figure does have an vehicle modes (space ship + Decepticon gun emplacement), but I designed the figure to look the best in bot mode, and really didn't want to compromise that aspect for a functional 'space ship' mode like the original figure had.

Hope you like the pics.
