Posted this earlier on in the forum and in a couple of others, if you flip the top section back there's a nice little "seat" to put Kreo Shockwave in, or any other Kreo's for that matter.

Amazing how FOC Shockwave seems to be as versatile as RID Galvatron. So far I've seen mounted, stand-alone, flying, and walker weaponry.

Energon spears still amaze me.

RTS and Generations Legends Prime can wield these bad boys while the GDO and Takara versions use the smaller hand pegs (same as the Cyberverse standard for weaponry).

You can also make a neat sword using the Prime Cyberverse weapons

This isn't really something the toy can do per se, but I just realized G1 Motormaster's vehicle mode is in great scale with Legends/Cyberverse Optimus Primes. He's in great scale with my DotM Cyberverse Optimus w/trailer. They can do a great "King of the road" head on collision.

Likewise, Motormaster's cab is pretty much the exact same size as Reveal the Shield Legends G1 Prime (recently repainted as Motorbreath). If that Prime had a trailer they would look perfect together.

Just picked up TFP Weaponizer Optimus Prime. Cool discovery: DOTM Laserbeak's double-cannon plugs into the 2 ports above this Prime's rear wheels. Both pegs on Beak's combined weapon line up with both ports perfectly, it's a great look.

Ever wondered why PCC Bombshock et all never seemed so flush in vehicle mode? I know I did. I just found out he has a sliding waist, front to back. With that, all the wheels are now level. Be sure to switch the legs around so the panels pop in properly too ;)
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

okay, probably been mentioned before, but didn't notice it myself til now, but TF Prime RID Voyager Optimus Prime has a sword, and that sword is modelled on the Star Saber from the show.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn

So, so late with this, but I just realized that Generations Skullgrin/Darkmount have elbow hinges, so you can pose him like he's got his hands on his hips.

Airachnid can actually be slightly mistransformed to improve her head articulation. The instructions have you attach her rotors to a peg on the canopy, and have the copter nose fold into the cockpit. Mine barely locked the rotor.

But if you fold the copter nose simply against the canopy, the rotor still attaches with a peg of its own into a groove on the underside of the nose. The cockpit remains empty, leaving more room for the chair and thus Airachnid's head to move around.

In anticipation of FoC Air Raid, I've come up with a couple starfighter modes for Shockwave. If you picture it in Air Raid colors, with his weapon bits, it might look a little better:

Type 1 is a strange 4-winged contraption. I like how the 'engines' (purple apps on his feet/barrel tip) align in the back, but the wings could be better:

Image

Image

(Sorry for the poor quality, but you get the idea)
Image

Type 2 is more of a standard/x-wing configuration. I really like this one. The engine placement isn't quite as nice, but overall it looks better. I suppose they could function as boosters out there or something:

Hope you guys like it! :D

I do. The original design leaves a lot to be desired. It's...odd.

Those look pretty sweet dude. I kinda like how the gun placement looks like it comes up from beneath the ship.

You don't like the original mode?? I love it! Its got that sweet space roadster baddassery going on, like theres a windshield for a flying rocket hover ship of pure awesomeness. I can easily say that it's the best form of Shockwave I've seen (in regards to the CGI model and overall concept). Hate on that all you want. 8)
