WiP: Transformers Classics Shockwave (Car)

While I really disliked how the original Transformers Alternator Shockwave transformed into a car (weird feet, and a sever case of car-back), the design it's self was pretty cool.

Here are some progress shots of turning a TF Classics 'Jazz' car into shockwave.

 Test painting + sanding to prevent joint wear.

Replaced cast, and fitted in the arm. Figure still transforms int car mode with gun-hand.

I'm experimenting with Hydroshrink to create a resized version of the original Alternator Shockwave head. If that doesn't pan out, I'll opt for a 'Fall of Cybertron' Shockwave head instead.

The original concept for this as a Classics-verse Transformer was found in an exclusive Botcon customizing class. Other reference art is by Transformer artist Dave Kahanna.
