So, I picked up dotm CV Shockwave with his "Fusion Cannon"...yeah sure. Point is, this thing is great! I know it's probably not everybody's favorite thing, I'm fairly amused with it.
The regular tank mode is far from the best thing around, but I like it. My favorite part about the set is the combined mode. I mean, it's ridiculous, but I like it.
For reference, here's a shot of the normal tank mode:
And here's the combined mode:
I can just imagine this thing coming at me, a tank the size of a Semi-truck with a trailer, except the trailer is a giant cannon. Great stuff for Shocky.
But then comes the reason I'm bothering to make a post. The following had me chuckling for a few minutes.
Shockwave's poor minions... ._.;
It took me a few minutes to figure out how to make the cannon stable, since there's no way for the base of the battle platform to lock in (in a feat of poor engineering, which this Shocky seems to be riddled with). Sooo, I found the first legion figure that didn't have elbows (since apparently even Legion figures are TOO TALL to actually stand up under the cannon) and shoved him between the cannon and the base-plate. And so the Vehicon-cannon was born!
