Age of Extinction
Custom of the Week - Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave by Jin Saotome

By Garage Mod on Tuesday, June 30, 2009



Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section.

This week's featured custom in our "holy freakin' cow" series is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave 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?"

We do indeed, Mr. Saotome.

Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave by Jin Saotome

"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."

Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave by Jin Saotome

"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."

See the full custom gallery in the customs and kitbashes section in our forums.

exactly my thoughts....kinda dulls out the point of submitting galleries for other artists who post regularly here instead of when they have an ebay auction.

More Age of Extinction News
Genetic of TFND has come through again with a huge gallery of photos of Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition, the most heavily equipped and painted version of Transformers 1-3 Optimus Prime you will ever see. It has a ridiculous amount of equipment, all storable in its Murder Truck mode. And even articulated fingers - keep reading to see it all!
The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted a wealth of images of the new Ultimate Optimus Prime, showing off what almost has to be the definitive version of Optimus as he appeared in Transformers (2007), Revenge Of The Fallen, and Dark Of the Moon. Featuring comparisons to the previous APS-01 release, Ultimate Prime features lots more paint and a tremendous loadout of weapons. The figure's due for release on April 24th but in the meantime you can keep reading to see the mirrored gallery of 43 images!
Cinematic Universes are a Thing right now, with Marvel and Star Wars leading the way. Now, according to Deadline, Paramount is looking at their biggest movie property with an eye towards more varied (and frequent) releases. To that end they're enlisting writer Akiva Goldsman, whose credits range from the drama A Beautiful Mind to the well-received TV series Fringe ...to Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. This should be interesting. The story also hints that Michael Bay may unsurprisingly be returning for Transformers 5 after his current movie project - or at least that TF5 won't go ahead until that project is complete. Keep reading for more details!
Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has posted images of the upcoming Hybrid Metal Figuration Age of Extinction Bumblebee from Herocross, a large figure featuring (as the name implies) diecast metal in its construction. It's due for July at a price of $130, and looks decently poseable and highly accessorized as far as SD figures go. Keep reading to see!
ToysRUs Japan has posted new images of Black Knight Optimus Prime! Based on Armor Knight Optimus Prime, the heavily-reworked version of Generations Leader-class Optimus, Black Knight Prime is every bit as extensively painted as the Armor Knight version and looks great. The figure is due for release in August at a price of 8,638 Yen after tax. Keep reading for the photos!
