A Shockwave of destruction by Jin-Saotome A Shockwave of destruction by Jin-Saotome
What's Transformers without Shockwave I ask you? He's like the jelly to a PB&J, the bottle cap to a beer, you know what I'm saying right? Though we saw Soundwave in the Revenge of the Fallen we didn't get ol' camera-eye. I aimed to fix that! Shockwave was created using a Swindle head, Soundwave upper body, and Protoform Starscream lower body. Soundwave's legs became the arms and I removed the fish-fin panels, also moving the main satellite spear. His hand and gun were various fodder parts and I added wires and hoses inside of his arms.

Shockwave's paint job took me hours of non-stop shading, weathering, use of every metallic color I had, and mixing together every technique I had to create his look. When it came to the purple I used it sparingly and didn't focus on the wing panels, darkening them to act like a cape behind him. Shockwave transforms into a mini Vector Prime type vehicle similar to Shoundwave's alt mode.

Problem: Shockwave was never in RotF. Shockwave's first appearance in the Bay movies was the third and final one.

And yeah, not criticizing or something but his head could have been epic like this.[link]
He never looked so badass.
And not to mention his transformation and the blades looks 'shweet' in last pic.

You didn't use all of Soundwave's upper body. Soundwave's legs are used as the arms.

Beautiful as usual. If he shows in 3, He should look like this. Then again I like shockwave, I'm a little afraid to hope for him to show up since he'll only die at the hands of the humans in some unbalanced way.

okay, shockwave wasnt in any movie. also, a lot of people, even me at first, thought that the chopper who got owned in the forest was blackout, which it wasnt. it was some random fill in for blackout. also, yeah, shockwave was a boss in the first game, and he did have the camera eye.

As I said on DM, this looks awesome. I love how you combined TF1 Protoform Starscream with TF2 Soundwave. They fuse nicely together.
Plus, the alt mode is really good. Really does take you back to G1 Shockers.

Sword wings always fit for any Cybertronian jet mode!
The purple was used well! great job!
The hand is... really something- Decepticon normal non-claw hand = a relief!
Harsh mega tubed gun arm... awesome contrast!

Hey... at least his eyes didn't transfer to his back or chest!

This looks so much better than the "Official" Shockwave from the 1st Transformers Movie game. In that one Shockwave's alt mode is a purple Apache Helicopter.
