My Custom FOC Shockwave w/ modded fusion cannon + custom paint.

Postby bumble_bee_68 » Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:58 am

My customized Transformers Generations: Fall Of Cybertron Shockwave. Custom metallic purple and silver repaint.

Custom 'hose' running from his back to the fusion cannon, which is clipped onto his left forearm.

His 'hose' is made from an old USB cable, which has been plugged into the hole in his back through a small rubber gasket and held in place by friction.

I made a small hole in the laser cannon with a tiny screwdriver, towards the top, and inserted the cable into it, and is also held in place by friction.

His laser gun / cannon is clipped into his forearm. If his left hand is not flipped out, there is a slot between his 'wrist' and hand like this [] .

There is a small tab inside his cannon behind the handle he would usually hold, like this || O .

The tab inside the cannon clips into the slot in his forearm.

It's a tight fit, but it will hold very well.

Any other questions, please feel free to ask :)

Thats pretty cool. How does it fair of in alt mode? I got my FOC Sockwave the other day and the gun itself is quite big. I had a mess around with him trying to get a sort of G1 mode but alas no avail

Thanks :) It's more of a lighter metallic purple in person.

If you mean his vehicle mode, I just have him in his bot mode for now; so I can't really answer that.

As far as I know, there have been no attempts to getting him into a G1 Gun mode, unless i am wrong. Haven't really been looking or trying that.
