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.
