CUSTOM TRANSFORMERS: SHOCKWAVE TOY! [ GENERATIONS, FALL OF CYBERTRON, FOC, LEGENDS ]

I created this custom toy last year, but I never uploaded it anywhere, until today.
I fused the Combiner Wars  / Titans Return Hardhead toy [his lower body / legs] with the Fall of Cybertron Shockwave [for his upper body, shown here]. Hence I made his new legs sturdier. The winged backpack came from Transformers Prime Voyager Ultra Magnus and the arm-blasters came from the Combiner Wars Thundercracker, and some Gundam model fodder [used for the two cannons that are pointing upwards on his backpack]. He still can transform, but he doesn't look so cool in his "cyber-tanky form", per his new legs, which were formerly jet parts.

Note: when you're working on these TF toy models, you don't always have to buy brand new ones for the spare parts. The main toy can be new, and the accessories can come from used stuff on ebay. But it's advisable to wash the used toys with warm or hot water, before you start using them ;) And btw, the extended title for the name of this article was done for the sake of the search engines, which often marginalize the search results of certain things.

Anyway, the custom toy was fully repainted with Tamiya and Vallejo game-air paints, using mainly the royal purple shade. His weapons and his backpack had to be colored with a shade of glossy black. And I used silver sharpies to add highlights to his body and his weapons. I didn't want to give him a rusted look [which can be done with brownish & bronze paints or shoe polish], since most of the robotic Cybetron residents like Shockwave are not covered in rust, as they move about on their daily tasks.
Since he is a Decepticon scientist and tactician, Shockwave is the bad guy, and I made a corresponding good guy... or  more accurately, a good girl, to be his opponent... That customized fembot is StrongArm, from the TF Robots in Disguise Cartoon and toyline.
She's shown battling him and giving him a dropkick in one of the latter pics.
