Illustrated by Pat Lee exclusively for Metal Spark Productions and distributed by Big Bad Toy Store, the Shockwave lithograph from Dreamwave is a fine piece of Transformers artwork. Printed on a sturdy stock not often attributed to Transformers posters, this lithograph just begs to be framed.
It measures at 18" x 24" and features everyone's favorite one-eyed Decepticon.
Shockwave leaps off the page in a dynamic pose. It appears as though he's just discovered some female Autobots raiding his store of Energon Cubes and he's prepared not to let them get a way with it. The background appears to be Cybertronian interior with Shockwave having just come through a doorway bordered by yellow and black stripes. With his left gun-arm pointed forward and his left hand nearly clenched into a fist; this Decepticon is ready to fight.
The colors used for this print are well chosen. The purple and gray of Shockwave stands out well against the doorway and flooring. To Shockwave's left, a blue-green glow illuminates the pipes and details. His one-eye glows as though he is speaking.
Another nice point about this piece is that, unlike some of Pat Lee's other Transformers art, Shockwave does not fall victim as badly to the forced perspective used. While his left leg, which is extended outward toward the viewer, looks far too big in regards to the rest of Shockwave, the rest
of his body is fairly well proportioned.
Overall, this is a very nice piece and definitely worth the cost. It also gives a character that some considered dull in the cartoon much deserved flair and excitement.
